LOVE this place! Best waiters in Charlotte - every time! Food is delicious, wine (Chianti) was a perfect compliment to our meals - chosen for us by our waiter "Armando" & we had impecable service! The cannoli's - better than in NY! The one and only thing we would love to see them do, is to premix their oil dipping... More

Often see restaurants touting that they have NY style pizza but rare to find one that lives up to that statement. ( I am from Long Island, so I know the difference) Portofino's is that rare exception. Sadly, we live out of town but would definitely be a repeat customer if we lived closer.

We had dinner at the Park Road location while passing through Charlotte. In my opinion, an Italian restaurant can always be judged by its "gravy," and this restaurant passed with flying colors. Nice and sweet with just the right thickness and spices. The chicken Sorrento, served with a side of cappellini, was pounded to a perfect thickness and tenderness. The... More

The service in the Arsley location was wonderful. The waiter had an Italian accent and really made us feel welcome and comfortable. We were a party of 8. I had the Insalada Napolatena and it was great. Very little noise level and the service was quick. I ordered the seafood bisque and it was bland so I sent it back... More

... and it's also close to home. I love eating at Portofino's Eastway location. I enjoy the food, the ambiance, and the service. Service is almost always friendly (there have been some exceptions). The food is great. You can get anything from a superb pizza to a full on pasta dish to great entre salads. The bread is just out... More

This is a great neighborhood restaurant run by an Italian family. It’s a small local chain with 4 locations. I’ve eaten at the locations on Park Road and Ayrsley Town Blvd. I have had good experiences at both, including dining with large groups. While not your best choice for a quiet, romantic dinner, it’s perfect for a regular night out.... More

Portofino’s is in a little shopping strip, and if I didn’t have a great GPS mapper in my car, I probably wouldn’t have found it. Sometimes food heaven can be well hidden. This dinning experience was excellent. The salad (see photo) even had sliced olives …. The bread … great…. My Lady ordered Spaghetti Bolognese and I ordered Shrimp Fradiavolo... More

This was a great little lunch spot. Their food was fantastic. I was in a large group, they did a great and fast job in getting our food out, everything was reasonably priced and everyone was raving about the food.

The servers were very attentive. At one point, I spilled some water and a server immediately came over to clean it up for me. There was complimentary bread. The portions on the meals were very large, and very tasty. My husband's philly steak sandwich meal came with two sandwiches. It was my son's birthday, and they gave him a huge... More
