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

As boring as it may sound, almost every time I have lunch at Portofino, I select the large lunch salad topped with grilled salmon. They will grill the fish to your liking (mine is ordered medium) and the freshness and size are really impressive - each and every time. My two friends each ordered a 'small' pizza which was quite...

My wife and I were out Christmas shopping and were looking for a place relax a little bit after a long productive day. We drove around the shopping center and found this Italian eatery. It was around 6pm and the place was packed. (A good thing) We decided to order from the gourmet pizza section of the menu. The name... More

This is a solid Italian restaurant that we go to not because it is the best in town but because it is overall good and very convenient for us. It is friendly, fast, and reasonably priced. It is a little loud, and there are generally families with kids when we go, so not exactly where you go for a quiet,... More

We went for a lunch and had a salty old Italian waiting on us. Great food, great price, great service. He made the lunch a fun experience with his thick accent and dry sense of humor.
