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

I eat at Portobello regularly. It is my favorite on Staten Island. The food is exceptional, the service is friendly and professional. The Chef/Owner offers creative specials the are fantastic. I use the valet parking during inclement weather.

I had never been to Portobello Cafe before but had always heard rave reviews, now I understand the hype. The food is outstanding, and M-Th they do a 2-1 entree special - we each got an appetizer entree and dessert and our bill was $61, we left completely satisfied and will definitely return. The ambience is family friendly- there were... More

The food was good albeit loaded with garlic. I chose portobello with rigatoni. My daughter chose fresh tuna wrap. We were both satisfied with our choices. The ambiance was destroyed by the amount of flies that circled our table. I mentioned this to the server and he suggested there was only one fly. When the food appeared so did a... More

She was very attentive and knew the menu very well. When some of us were unsure of an item, she brought over a tablet where we could see a picture of... More

I really enjoy this place. Its only downfalls is that because of the buy one get one free meals its always packed and the place is tiny leaving absolutely no where to stand and who wants to stand outside when its so cold. The other downfall is that there is really no place to park so you are going to... More
