Delicious!! Probably the best classy restaurant in Pinecrest/Palmetto Bay

We shared a portion of "crunchy blue cheese gnocchi" and it was superb. Following an innovative quinoa pasta with mushrooms....unique and a great risotto with shrimps. Everything was fresh and made to order. Wine selection was very effective with good prices. Do not get fooled because it is... read more

This little restaurant is a great find—it has really great food. It is located in a very unassuming location across the street from the Falls Shopping Mall in a strip shopping center. It is a small Italian restaurant (about 15 tables inside) with additional outdoor seating. This restaurant is a great value—the food is very good and the prices are... More

We came here based on TA reviews. We were not disappointed. The early bird special is till 6:30. It provides a glass of wine, soup or salad, with your menu entree for $28. A warm bread basket is served with chopped tomato dressing. The salad is a 3 lettuce salad with a vinegar être. The soup was a portobello mushroom.... More

I've been going to Portofino for the last 6 years. The quality and flavor of the food excels every time. The ambiance of the space, with its colorful paintings make the experience of dining at Portofino even better. The wait staff are super attentive, they always treat us as if we were the only table at the restaurant; they do... More

I went to the restaurant with some friends and family, my daughter had been there before and mentioned to us but never had a chance to go. But trust me, the food is more than great, Italian with a different touch, I will say one of the best Italian restaurants if not the best. But go, do not have words... More

I have known of this restaurant since it opened, that was around 8-9 years ago. It has never disappointed my wife or myself or any of my friends. It is not Italian but rather cosmopolitan. That's because the chef may prepare specials from different part of the world. I recommend the Rissotto, carpaccio, veal or the filet. For me personally,... More
