Even though I live in the area, I have not been to Cafe Portofino before. What I have been missing! This restaurant is a gem. The food is great, the wine list is more than adequate and the service could not be better. There is a very personal warmth that you get at this restaurant that is difficult to find... More

Quaint little restaurant on the edge of town. Food is very good and portions are adequate. There is nice variety on the menu and is well prepared. Everyone in our party enjoyed their selection. However, wait staff seemed very disorganized and forgetful. Was not a terribly busy night, and we had to ask our waiter repeatedly for drinks and service... 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

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 wheat pasta or just the pasta with marinara and some...

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.

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
