Good

Some friends took my husband and I here for dinner when we were visiting Charlotte. It was a Saturday night and very busy. We got in right away and were seatedon the outside heated patio. It was quite comfortable even though it was cold that night. Food was good and reasonably priced.

Whether take out or dine in, it's great. Scott, our waiter was fantastic and loved what he does, that's easy to see. Capresse easily shared between two as was the parmesan platter of chicken, veal, shrimp, and ravioli. Would return and highly recommend. Very nice

Located in a strip mall, this is a typical Italian pizza/food restaurant. We sat near the door and I found it to be a bit cold. It was also a bit noisy. The food was OK but not great.

My partner and I visited a high school friend of his and invited him out for dinner. This is the restaurant he picked. Wow! He made a great choice. This modest looking, strip mall located restaurant serves up extraordinary, authentic Italian cuisine. I asked our host what he recommended. He stated that everything was authentic and good. The dinners included... More

I had a glass of Cabernet, a... More

I'm not a gourmand by any means, but what Portofino's offers satisfies completely. The dishes are consistently excellent, and the specials are even better. I've been too many times to count, and never been disappointed.

Large portions; quality is good. I tried the bolognese sauce and found it very tasty. Other dishes seem to be good. Very popular with the locals.

I saw the great reviews on Google while searching for a random nearby place and noticed the awesome rating. What a happy accident to just happen to be nearby this wonderful restaurant. I knew we would be trying something besides their well-loved pizza on our first visit. Our server was wonderful and the experience was top-notch for a nice mid-range... More

Very accommodating for a fairly large table. Service was good and the food delicious. Most of us had leftovers. This was a favorIte for the locals in our party and would be one of mine if I lived there.
