My wife and I go to Portofino's on almost weekly - and always sit at the bar due to Woody and Elizabeth. Consistenly outstanding food and outstanding service, all at a decent price.

This is my favorite italian in Charlotte. The food is always delicious and they have great portion sizes. Service is always superb as well. I recommend it to everyone. My favorite is their seafood or pizza.

This is an excellent restaurant. The service is impeccable, the food is wonderful. I had a Bolognese spaghetti. Very hard to find it that good unless you go to New York. My wife had pizza and a salad. Pizza was wonderful as well. A must go if you are in the Charlotte.

In case your Italian's a little rusty, "Where's the beef?" In all honesty, this experience may have been my own fault. I had never visited Portofino’s before, and I was invited to go with a work group to this Italian restaurant for lunch.

This was close to where my husband, son, & I were staying, so we decided to try it. The food is very expensive & our server was not the greatest. We rarely saw her, plus she wasn't very friendly. We love italian food but was disappointed.

Ate there for lunch. My daughter had the salmon pasta entree which she really liked. I split a pizza with a buddy. He's from Manhatten, says pizza at Portofino is the best in Charlotte. I agree it's very good. He also had pasta primavera which was very good. The staff was very attentive. I'll go back.

This is an excellent choice for solid, unpretentious food. Friendly and consistent service, large portions and very good food. The staff makes you feel like family every time you visit - and most entrees are large enough to take half home as a snack or lunch the next day. The outside of the restaurant looks plain, but visit anyway -... More

We have been several times and some times the food is great and sometimes the food is a disappointment. Love their salad and service but we never know how the food will taste.
