I don't know about you but service is 1/3 of the meal. Location and salad bar are great. Try to get a window seat on your anniversary and they are almost rude. Had appetizer at bar, bartender forgot our order, and left customers meal next to us for 10 minutes. They finally complained that it was cold. Fought with drunk... More

Nice scenery. However the service was rushed and food was ok but not worth the price tag. Much better places for just over 1/2 the price. I will not go back.

We ate at Portfino on 7/18/14 while vacationing at the Longboat Key Club and loved it. We had reservations for 7:00 and arrived and were seated immediately. We were welcomed by our waiter and informed of the specials for the day, we ordered drinks and a appetizer and took in the atmosphere of the restaurant. The views are of the... More

I think you come here for the atmosphere & views. I will say that I read & noticed that people liked & ordered pasta & pizza here. Maybe that was our mistake, as we ordered seafood entrees. My husbands was very overcooked & mine was good-not great. And not cheap. We had much better meals for half the price. Maybe... More

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.

We've been coming to Portofino several times over the years and always had good food and service. 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 shared the delicious calamari - very light tempura... More

We moved to Longboat Key three years ago and have tried Portofino several times. It seems each time we are disappointed in some way. First of all, after spending a long period of time in Italy, this is nothing like the food we experienced there. We decided a new year, a new try at Portofino hoping that changes in club... More

My girlfriend and I were staying at the resort. I set our reservations up for Saturday November 23rd. We were seated promptly and made aware of the specials. 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.
