Pizza

Great pizza, not cheap, but good crust, sauce and toppings. They do your take-out order by number instead of name, makes sense as this is much easier than trying to pronounce a name. Good pizza for hosting friends or events.

Had a wonderful dinner the other night and really enjoyed our evening. We ordered calamari, pomodoro pasta and pizza. We were greeted by a lovely young woman Alysia, who made sure our visit was wonderful. We can't wait to go back! I would highly recommend eating here.

After our first two dinner plans got squashed...long story... and with the uber driver waiting for instructions we quickly looked at what was in the area and decided on Portofinos. Could not have been a more delightful accident! We arrived late in the dining evening but were never rushed. Service was exceptional from beginning to end. Everything was fresh, brought... More

We were shopping, and looking for somewhere at the Arberetum to eat. My husband saw this place, so we went in. The pizza was some of the best we have eaten. Service was prompt and great. We also enjoyed the outside seating. We would definitely recommend & return.

Was traveling on business and in the mood for good, simple Italian food. We started with an appetizer comprised of several types of meats & cheeses, they were very good and were all sliced in a different manner, making a great presentation. We also had the garlic cheese bread with a tomato dipping sauce, it was good too. Entrees we... More

As transplants from the northeast, we're always looking for pizza that reminds us of the great stuff we used to get on Long Island, in Manhattan or in Jersey. Portofino delivered! We started off with fried calamari, which can always go either way. When it's good, it's awesome, when it's bad it's terrible. Portofino's was excellent! Flavorful with a crisp... More

Crust had no taste except like cardboard and it was mushy in the center and hard as a rock on the edges. I sent it back as I could not eat it. Their other locations are rated way higher than this one, but I would not set food in any of them again

We have been going to this place for 10 years and it's always excellent. The food and the service are always consistent and you can be in and out in an hour-weekend gets busy though.They also have pickup service.

In the back portion of a sort of strip mall on Park Rd. in Charlotte, I have been here a number of times for lunch when in town and the trick is not to be lured to eat and order everything, because it all is great, but I will have to eat dinner later! The staff really care about the... More
