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.

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. At the entrance to the restaurant, one is greeted by massive pizza ovens and display shelves with... More

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.
