Went with family (all adults) and sat outside by the pool and the docks. A really nice setting. Serene & tranquil. Pretty good cocktail menu. Well-prepared pasta and fish. A nice find in LBK.

I was surprised to read reviews on poor service because we were there last night, it was very busy, but our service was excellent! All the servers were bustling around looking after their tables.

We moved to Longboat Key three years ago and have tried Portofino several times. It seems each time we are disappointed in some way.

Our first choice of wine we were told that they were out of, but the second choice was good as well. The muscles as the appetizer were wonderful. I had the grouper... More

Been to Portfino several times. Each time is just as awesome as the last. The pizzas are great, the bartenders and staff are very friendly, and food is excellent. Although, the pizza is my favorite! Huge desserts!

Visited this restaurant whilst on holiday at Longboat key club. Quite an extensive interesting menu. The meal was thoroughly enjoyable and the staff were very attentive and friendly. It's certainly worth a visit if you are in the area.

My family just dropped in to this place and we where really surprised. Service and quality of food a real positive surprise. My son even complained that they where so efficient servicing us that the stay was to short. The terrace and the view makes you want to stay.

Sitting on that terrace with a view on the harbor is already a nice experience. On top of the that, the service was very friendly and finally the food was very Italian. I had the fish soup and my wife had pasta - excellent.
