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.

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
