I have never had such nasty tortellini. Their sauce tasted like something out of a can and it was very bland. Their tortellini was overcooked and very mushy. I did not enjoy it at all. Haven't been back since.

I've been to Portovino for dinner 5-6 times in the past but I went for Brunch for the first time today and let me say that the dinning overall experience is average "not bad nor a wow factor" but Brunch was very deceiving starting with the waiter looking like he hates his job, the hostess was very pleasant with a...

A group of family friends met for dinner. Filet mignon tasted delicious and served as ordered (medium rare) on a bed of grilled vegetables. Roasted potatoes were an excellent accompaniment to the main plate. Creme brule and chocolate mousse were shared on the table. The ambiance was warm and inviting. The staff was friendly and the service was good. We... More

Went for a company meeting. The food was good. I had the Rigatoni Primavera, and it was very good food. The staff was decent with the usual mistakes and forgets. It was a good experience and I would recommend it for a night out

I like Portovino as a restaurant and normally everything is quite good. Last week we went for Sunday Brunch and it was abysmal! The food was OK but the way they organize the place was horrible. If you are seated upstairs you will need to force your way through all the people waiting in the entrance with their coats and... More

The real winner here is customer service. I met a lovely lady who just made me feel like a valued customer. An extra smile goes a long way; eye contact shows sincerity!I will be back soon

Last night we had our company Christmas party at Portovino. We were made to feel unwelcomed there right from the start. They had wedged us between two other parties and did not have sufficient seating for our reservation. The second we sat there they rudely asked us what we wanted because they were in a rush. We had to ask... More
