Reliably good italian food in a simple and charming dining room. We love this place on a cold weekday evening. The house montepulciano is round and rich. My half-Sicilian husband always orders spaghetti and meatballs which must mean it's good. I either order grilled salmon with a side of whole... read more

The people that run this Restruant are very nice and make you feel attended to. I have been here sporadically over the past 10 years and always had a great meal. This past time was not the same. One of our dishes came out wrong. They were accommodating and remade it and bought us desert but that being said it... More

I have been going to Cafe Portofino for years. The food has been consistently great. Nice, romantic atmosphere. Jack the owner is the nicest guy! No doubt the best Italian restaurant in Piermont. Highly recommend!

We eat here several times a year on our own and bring out-of-town visitors if we are going out to dinner. Invariably, when guests come back, they ask to go there. The food is very good and reasonably priced. The waitstaff is always friendly and helpful (very little turnover), and the atmosphere is relaxed. There's quite a bit of variety... More

So, this small Italian roadside restaurant is very good. Certainly the best Italian in the village. Fresh fish was really good, and the wine list was modest and fairly priced. I'd go back soon. I think it's AMEX or cash though if I recall correctly. Host couldn't be nicer.

We have visited here several times and have never been let down. The service, food and atmosphere is second to none. The menu is diverse and always some specials that are not to be missed. Even after a full meal the desert's are excellent and then gave us an excuse to walk through the Village of Piermont to take in... More

First the Martinis are second to none. Second the food is always hot and consistent.Atmosphere usually considerate people enjoying their meals, very enjoyable. The owner picks his own wine. Tell him what you like he will suggest the perfect wine.if you want a over the top opulent place don't go here. Its quaint understated and classy. Leave time to walk... More

While this was the second time here it didn't disappoint. They are a very good Italian restaurant with a great bar and dinner area. Service was a tad slow but we were a larger group drinking our wine and talking and having fun so no one cared and when we asked they jumped right in. Great food at a great... More

After reading all the reviews I was sure our dinning experience would be great,but unfortunately was a disappointment. The waitress took the order and did not see her again, always had to ask to have our water glasses filled. Asked another waitress for Belvedere Vodka, waitress came back said do not carry Belvedere ok Asked for a Merlot wine again... More

Terrific, homemade food with attentive but not obtrusive service. Moderate prices for creative, delicious food. A welcome site in the Piermont dining scene.
