Mama Mia! What a meal!

I have been going to Portofino's for the past 5 years. I love their sit down restaurant, but usually don't have time for a long meal - so instead I order at their take-out window in the back. My favorite meal is the warm chicken salad - and I always get the house dressing. Perfectly cooked... read more

This has been one of our favorites for years. They are authentic Italian, not what we think Italian should be. They are family run, and try hard to please. The wine, antipasto, salads, bread, bolognese sauce is best I've ever had, great pizza, Linguine with clam sauce is delicious, but I'm so crazy about their steak and cheese subs. I... More

Had reservations for a birthday dinner, and had a little problem with the service. The gratuity was already added as we had a large group. We wouldn't have left such a gracious tip.

Very friendly service, good food overall. Lasagna was a little heavy on the sauce, but overall good flavor.

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

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.

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
