Always a good meal

Best bet is definitely the Italian egg rolls to start, and nice bowl of one of their pasta dishes. You can't go wrong. Also have had good experiences here for large parties.

I don't know what we really expected but to us our dinner was boring. Once we were served, we ate, paid the bill and left. while the dinner was good it just didn't stand out like we thought it would. Oh well, maybe next time.

Enjoyed Kale Salad, Rice Balls, Butternut Soup, Mama's Sunday dinner and the double stuffed pork chop. Nice sized entrees. I just LOVE their... More

We had a very bad meal at Portobello Café, we both ordered Linguini with clam sauce and to our surprise the clams were empty. We were with other people so we did not want to make a fuss, but we feel we got ripped off.

You would think a restaurant would care for the comfort of its patrons. Not this one. The Stupid Rule is "No Hats". So,they turn up the AC to make the restaurant cold. A female server who should be a drill Sargent comes by and pulls my hat off my head and screams " NO HATS" ! Instead of politely saying... More
