My only small quibble is that the eggplant parm doesn't come with pasta (but the chicken parm does). It's odd. Definitely there will be leftovers.

Had lunch here and, knowing it was a highly regarded restaurant in Charlotte, I was really looking forward to my meal. The place has true Italian ambiance. The wait staff is superb. We were seated and given the menus. It is so hard to choose what you want because everything sounds delicious. I went with Chicken Portifino and my pal... More

We've eaten at the original spot and the new location off of North Tyron. The original location is smaller and the wait can be long. We love the new restaurant and have visited three times. The portions are very generous and a great value. The servers are attentive and eager to please. Visit this great place!

We used to live in the Charlotte area and Portofino's was always one of our favorites. When we were getting together with family to celebrate some birthdays we decided Portofino's would be a great choice. Unfortunately we were very disappointed in both the food and the service. First the food. I will start with the best of all. Portofino's still... More

From walking in to leaving, my experience at Portofino's was incredible. I was looking for a nice place to take my girlfriend that was classier than a chain like carabbas but cheaper than a place with 25 dollar entrees. This was exactly that place. Upon walking in, I was greeted by an Italian man(very strong accent) who appeared to possibly... More

We took a family group of 8 to Portofino tonight. There were no parties waiting when we arrived. The hostess pointed to a large table that was about to leave and said we would be seated there in 10-15 minutes when the table was cleaned. A party of 10 arrived a few minutes later and were seated at the table... More

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.
