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

My wife and I eat here fairly frequently, as we've always enjoyed the food. My favorite dish is the tortellini Gorgonzola, it's pretty awesome. The only thing I'd say badly about Portofino is the service can sometimes be spotty. We've had visits with great service, and some where we've long periods of time to order, and to get drink refills.... More

I've visited this restaurant 3 times, and will return. The waiters are excellent, and I love going to an Italian restaurant, and hearing Italian music. This restaurant has a very cosmopolitan feel. Tables are somewhat close, but not crowded. My favorite dish is the chicken marsala. The only point deduction for me is because the red sauce has an unusual... More
