Large portions, made from scatch recipes, reasonable prices, excellent service by people who look like they have worked there forever ! This place has been here a long time and stays packed which should tell you something.

My husband and I went there for dinner, and we were disappointed. The staff was not very friendly, and the food was mediocre. If you are used to eating good Italian food do not go there. The food at the Olive Garden is much better!

Center cut pork chops were delicious. Chicken François also very good if you're into lemon flavors. Homemade tiramisu is a must-have finish.

Food is great, pizza is the best. Good with children. Probably wouldn't be a good place to go with small children without naps. Regardless, the staff doesnt sneer at you if your kid makes a noise. I like it. Never an issue on any of my visits.

Very 70s. Everything from the disgusting plastic table covers to the dusty old lamps and plastic plants. I don't understand how this place even got good reviews. Booths were very old, uncomfortable and I could feel each spring ready to poke out. Had one sip of the coffee and could tell it was two days old. Walked out after that.... More

Just had dinner at Portofino. I have been dining there since the 80's when in the area, and use to enjoy the great italian atmosphere of candlelight and soft music, but tonight we had to listen to a radio playing some pop music which really spoiled the evening. Hey Portofino, what happened to the Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, etc. dinner... More

Porto-Fino sits right on A1A in Daytona Beach. From the outside, it looks like a restaurant from a bygone era. Inside, confirms it, it is a restaurant from the 1970's. Our chatty waitress said it has been in the same location under the same management for 33 years. Except for a recent remodel of the bathrooms, it looks like nothing... More

We chose this restaurant because it was near our motel but are very sorry we wasted our money there! I am 100% Italian and was so disappointed in their food especially the awful bread that tasted like cardboard! We tried the zucchini parmesan and ravioli and would not recommend those choices at all. Just don't waste your money there!

Once you get past the outdated decor, including fake poinsettias on the table in April and plastic table coverings, this is a good Italian restaurant. The servers were pleasant, efficient and just engaging enough. We were served our drinks with a basket of warm Italian bread that was delicious. My husband and I shared a Greek Salad (7.95, but plenty... More

If you are reading this please know that I have just left the restaurant after having to leave my full meal on the table because it was so terrible. I read the reviews on here on my drive home and the ones about the stale bread, soggy fish are so accurate I felt like I must have just wrote it... More
