Fun birthday dinner!

We made reservations for 6 the day of and had a nice table! Appetizers were delicious especially the eggplant roll up. All of our dinners were good size portions and came with roasted garlic and good bread! Limoncello and pizzelle (sp?) are on the house! Not fancy but nice atmosphere!

We went to Portofino as we like to try many restaurants. It was great. Our server Kelly was very good. The wine and drinks were great. The food was great. We will go back and most likely order the same thing. Every aspect was wonderful.

Sat outside on the patio which was very nice. The calamari and the portofino clams red which were probably one of the best i have ever had. The wife had the ravioli which was awesome as well. The Chef came out and talked for a bit which was really nice. Jacob our waiter was very pleasant and we really enjoyed... More

Food and service were above average but the portions were on the smaller side and prices on the higher side.

I went to Elizabet's however I still refer to it as Portofino. A very good restaurant for the price. Been there twice. The fish and veal dishes are very good quality. The service is very good and attentive. In the end they serve a complementary Italian Pastry along with your coffee and a small Biscotti with the cappuccino. A complementary... More

The food, atmosphere and service are always good. We dine there about every two or three months since we go for special occasions rather than everyday dinners. We went there last night, and most of our party got veal or chicken Parmesan; everyone raved about it. I had the shrimp scampi with orzo, and it was okay. Usually, the roasted... More

We went there the other night for a quiet dinner out. It wasn't too busy; the waiter was always busy, but still attentive. The meatball appetizer was excellent. We almost always get a seafood dish and we are always glad we did. This time, I tried Veal Portofino. Glad I tried it, but I'll probably go back to a seafood... More

The lobster ravioli was excellent, actually the best I've had on the east coast. I did order it thinking that if anyone can make a great lobster ravioli, it would be an Italian restaurant in Rhode Island, and I wasn't wrong. Huge chunks of lobster meat, and the seared scallop added something special. My husband had the veal saltimbocca, and,... More

Took a chance by googling Italian restaurants in Warwick and hit the jackpot! Authentic Italian with a reasonably quiet atmosphere. Mature, friendly wait staff. Appeared to have quite a few local clientel. Baked stuff shrimp with risotto was excellent. Lots of local fresh seafood options. Convenient to Green airport.

I frequent this restaurant and have never been disappointed. Their food is always fresh and cooked to perfection at reasonable prices. Last evening i enjoyed a shrimp and prosciutto appetizer which was enough to be my meal and perfectly prepared. The service is always welcoming and hospitable. I have recommended this restaurant to several out of state friends and they... More
