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 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

On our most recent visit, we arrived a few minutes before 5:30, but were graciously seated and promptly served water and given menus. I tried one of the chef's specials, whole wheat... More

Fantastic Italian restaurant with delicious food and great atmosphere, very intimate and cozy. One of my favorite places to dine often, staff is always friendly and attentive. I recommend the chefs specials, they are phenomenal. My personal favorite dessert is the Tiramisu - just heavenly.
