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

Visited the location off Park Road and ordered traditional spaghetti and meatballs. The pasta was fantastic as it was cooked just right; not too hard or too soggy. The sauce was very nice and came with 3 huge meatballs. Good bread, salad, and service to boot!

Portofino has some of the best wood fired pizza I've ever had. Order the spicy arrabiatta pizza. You won't be disappointed.

We ate at the one on Park Road, but could not find a separate page for them. It's noisy and open, but the food is good, the service is fast, and the portions are generous. I had the calimari and scungilli (squid and conch) over pasta. They were overcooked and therefore tough, but still tasty. My wife had veal parmigiana... More
