Great resort restaurant!

Very good food, great service, excellent views of the Gulf. Probably a bit overpriced because it is a resort restaurant, but very good, nevertheless.

Portofino is part of the Longboat Key Club group of restaurants. Beautifully situated on the grounds of the Marina. Good place for family, large groups and small.

Despite the very lovely restaurant and location the service was pretty average, at times over attentive, at times non existent. The food was ok, have had plenty of better Italian food at much lower prices. Over expensive for what you get.

We were guests and I loved the atmosphere. It was raining so we sat inside, but there is outdoor seating. The interior is a Tuscany time feel. Service was very good. I had the Pasta Bolognese. Very good. It came with large flat noodles and if I had again I would ask for spaghetti.

I am a member at the Longboat Key Club. We want this restaurant to be good, but we have consistently bad service. REALLY BAD! The food can be adequate but why would you subject yourself to this?

Incredibly mediocre dining. Hard to understand how a restaurant can destroy the easiest meals including ceasar salad and pasta. Suffice it to say the salad had been made earlier, drenched with dressing and sitting in the refrigerator. The waiter admitted that it was not very good since the lettuce was completely wilted. The pasta was lukewarm and tasted like it... More

we go often to Portofino and usually sit in the bar. They have great pizza and pasta Bolognese, one of which we usually get, but most of their other dishes we've had are great. Killer calamari app. Drinks are very generous, and the regular bartender is one of the hardest workers we've ever seen, and endeavors to take good care... More

Epic fail this visit. Came again to eat at the bar. Bar was filled with 12 guests and 2 tables. The poor bartender was overwelmed and had little help. He was also making the drinks for the rest of the busy restaurant. We left after 30 minutes having not even ordered yet. Got waters and menus but no service. my... More

If dining is the only reason to be a member Do Not Join. Same menu for years including the grease stains and severely scratched plates. All in my party were very dissatisfied
