Last night we had the pleasure of having dinner at Portobello Cafe on Hylan Blvd, Staten Island to celebrate my daughter's birthday. I was very impressed with our server. 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

So I was recommended this place by a few people that live in Staten Island. I take my mom there for dinner about 5:30 and when we arrive they seat us at a table my mom really didn't like and even before we sit down the waiter noticed that we wanted to sit somewhere else and asked if we wanted...

There is a special that is always offered Monday thru Thursday. You are able to buy one dinner and get one free. The food is excellent. Most of the time, you leave with a doggie bag.

Went to lunch with friends and found a wide variety from which to choose including wraps, heros, a number of pasta dishes and their full dinner menu. Two of us had pasta. My dish included calamari and a fra Diablo sauce which was outstanding and plentiful. Those who got wraps were quite satisfied with them in terms of quality and... More

Based on a recommendation from the desk clerk at the Hilton Garden Inn we drove over to this small neighborhood Italian Cafe. The distance is about 6 miles from the hotel on Hyland Blvd. The general area is nothing special but the restaurant has a true Italian flavor down to our waiter whose accent made you feel like you were...

The food is wonderful! Fis h, Veal Chicken Pasta rice and much much more. The owner is very inventive and hands on. During the week it is 2 for 1 and well worth it. Have a drink or two and dessert to die for.
