This restaurant is tucked in the back of a small strip mall on the Main Street if Cochrane. The best chicken Marsala I've had in the Calgary area. Service is good, prices are reasonable, recommend reservations on weekends.

Just had a lovely Valentine's Day dinner at Portofino in Cochrane AB. As always, the service and food were excellent. A perfect location for a romantic dinner for two! Can't wait to go again

We went to celebrate our wedding anniversary and absolutely loved this restaurant. One of our favourites in the Calgary area. Worth the drive for sure.

I have been to this restaurant so many times over the years I couldn't even count. In fact I lived in Italy once for two months and never found Italian food there as good as at Portofino's. I would highly recommend this as the best Italian food in the Calgary/Cochrane area! In fact it just maybe the best restaurant in... More

10 stars actually. We have dined at Portofino many many times and have always enjoyed it. It is upscale dining at it's finest, without being pretentious. Truly an authentic experience. The food is always fresh, flavorful, well prepared and presented. It is also our children's favorite restaurant (especially for the spaghetti and lasagna). The service is outstanding. I remember one... More

My daughter and I ate here for a special night out. Our entrees were truly excellent; saffron shrimp and a duck/fettuccini dish. They were the highlight of the meal. My side of pasta was a pretty routine penne in tomato/basil sauce. The bread was good, but again, nothing special. Service was great, just the right blend of friendliness and helpfulness... More

This was our first visit to Portofino and our expectations were met. We were early and without reservations but were greeted warmly and seated immediately. We were advised our table was reserved for other guests in just over two and a half hours. I thought this an appropriate way of allowing us way more than enough time and avoiding the... More

We have been several times ad the food has always been excellent and the staff eager to please. Only drawback is that it can get crazy busy and the service gets slow. Will always go back.
