Whenever I have company I take them to Portofino. Whether they are from Calgary, Toronto, the U.S. or overseas they always rave about the food. Last week's meal there was no exception.

I always opt for the Caesar salad which has a spicy creamy dressing. The linguini pescatore was perfect as usual: loaded with crab claw, salmon and... More

The food was great, a bit pricey for the location. Trains go by every 5 minutes shaking tables. The service was good, friendly efficient staff.

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
