Everyone raved about the place but they haven't had good food anywhere. Probably think Olive Garden is fine dining. Surly staff. Used to be a Pizza Hut. Carded my 27-year old novio. How immature of THEM!

We looked at the couple of other Italian restaurants in Roswell and decided on Portifinos. We were genuinely pleased! My advice, go before 4pm to enjoy the lunch specials. They're $7.99 and with soup or salad, not to mention the fresh baked bread and olive oil dip. Soup was a cream of mushroom w/ chicken. We went with the salad.... More

We had not eaten here in while so we decided to have Italian. The crab bisque was delicious and the spinach salad was excellent. The lasagna portion was huge. The restaurant was very clean which always makes the meal better. If you are looking for Italian, try here.

We were driving through and stopped here to eat. Great decision. Alfred was our server. He was very helpful on menu selections and service. Kept our drinks full. Portion sizes were huge. Salads had fresh mozzarella on them. Bread basket did not last long at our table. It was great. I recommend sharing the main course and saving room for... More

Ordered Spaghetti with Mushroom meat sauce, and Italian Tomato Salad for dinner. Brother!! I don't know whether these two guys learned from the best Chefs in New York or what!! But this is Outrageously Delicioso!! This place may qualify as a "hole-in-the-wall" but don't let that fool you. New York's finest will love to drop in after a long day!!... More

1st - the service was out of this world. Our server was beyond amazing. 2nd - the food... wow! 3rd - the amount of food for a reasonable price! Downfall - The venue not the prettiest, but that can totally be overlooked! Totally recommend!

We went there with family and friends - good value for the money, plenty of large pizza, but nothing out of the ordinary

I ordered lasagna which was excellent and my wife ordered chicken parmesan which was equally good. Restaurant appears to be sited in a renovated Pizza Hut, but no effort has been made to create the feel of an Italian restaurant. Great place to go if you are hungry for good Italian, but not the place to take a date.
