Fresh, flavorful

Food was fairly good. We each had something different and each had good flavor. My wife thought there was too much sauce on her pasta but it was good nonetheless. Not too much available for kids who are not pasta fans. Salads and bread were fresh.

We have been to this restaurant three times. We have ordered pizza each time. The first time, toppings were ample. I told everyone how great it was. The second time, not so much. The third time, toppings were almost non-existent. It was closer to closing time (about 9 p.m.), so maybe they were too lazy to cut any more. I... More

Excellent pizza and the employees are great. They also made excellent wine recommendations based on them inquiring what type of wines I preferred. We visit each trip to CHarlotte.

This place is an ok chain for Charlotte. The portions are huge and taste pretty good. The staff is helpful and friendly. The food is fine, but nothing special. We enjoyed a meal with the whole family, but it was really loud inside. House salad dressing--creamy tomato basil--is delicious.

This is our go- to Italian restaurant. It reminds me of the food made by our friends from Italy- "real". My kids love the kids menu and they really will make you anything you want. We go to the one on Tryon and sit outside. Just an excellent place to eat fabulous food and have fabulous drinks and desserts!

This is not a fine dinning experience, but it's not a pizzeria either. -- Something in between. The food is very good and the portions very large. The veal and Parmigiana and Chicken Parm. are particularly good but large enough to serve two people. There are two locations, both are in shopping centers, but that's rather common for Charlotte. Personally,... More

After a long day of traveling, we ordered Portofino's NY style pizza for our family dinner. The pizza did not disappoint. It was boardwalk style pizza and excellent! If we ever travel through here again, we will keep this place on our list!

We had a wedding rehearsal dinner at the Park Rd location last night. We had reserved the outside patio. Our rehearsal was over sooner than we anticipated and our party arrived 45 minutes. We were pleasantly surprised when we were welcomed with lots of smiles and they said everything was ready for us! They had 2 -3 dedicated servers for... More

I used to go to Portofino often and the Italian dishes were excellent. I haven't been there for about a year and I went there last night. What a disappointment, the food was terrible. I had the seafood bisque for starters and it tasted like tomato soup. The bread wasn't warm, and the olive oil tasted old. For my main... More
