Most pizza restaurants in Madison and Guilford are providing pizza too much grease and oily. This place it is good pizza no grease no oil and very good Italian food.

2 subs that were, well - edible. One was missing the lettuce and tomato that it was to come with although I don't think it would have made a huge improvement. The Miranda - turkey, salami, and cheese was blah. The grinder roll was also...unspectacular. The meatball sub was just as taste-lacking and the melted cheese not melted. Try someplace else. After all how difficult is it to make a grinder? Apparently for Portofino quite difficult.More

Portofino's makes a really tasty "apizza"-- thin crust, great flavors, good combinations. The cheeses are wonderful and the sauces are delicious.

Had takeout dinner from Portofino's tonight and the lasagna and eggplant parmigiana were good, and the "garlic knots" are excellent. Stuffed breads are tasty also.

Considering it's tucked away in a small strip mall in North Madison, Connecticut, miles away from civilization, Portofino's makes surprisingly good thin crust pizza and their garlic knots are just delicious.

Portofino's makes a very good thin crust pizza and their eggplant grinders are good, too. Baked ziti had a little too much cheese for my taste.

I usually think of Portofino's as a "pizza place" however, we recently used them to cater food for a memorial service and I was pleasantly surprised by how great the food was! Awesome Chicken Florentine, Eggplant Parm, Chicken Parm, Lasagna, Stuffed Breads/Garlic Breads and Salad....I would highly recommend if you need to order larger quantities for any type of larger event. I've had their pizza in the past too which is also very good.More

Portofino's makes a good thin crust pizza that is flavorful, chewy, and satisfying. It may not be a destination restaurant but if you are in the area and are looking for pizza you can't go wrong here. Eggplant grinder was fine also. And on Saturday...evening, they are open til 10 pm.More

This is our go to pizza place, and they deliver! (Tip your driver yo!) and we always bring their stuffed breads to parties. Can't go wrong. Staff & drivers are super friendly & polite.

I like the Hawaiian delicious with the hint of cinnamon. Also the Yankee clipper is a nice spicy meaty pie. The crust is crispy and slightly chewy deliciousness.

it is not often that pizza places are better known for the subs and breads, but that is how my family feels about Portofinos. The pizza is fine, but the italian grinders and pepperoni bread are the better choice I feel.

Went in, asked for a chicken club. Hands down one of the best I've had in a while! The baguette toasted was great! I'd say I'll make more visits!

They offer a pretty wide Italian choice of food and they do it really really well. They nail the pizza spot on! A wide choice of pizzas, from the common choices, Sicilian, and also specialty pizzas...not the typical offerings, much more. The calzones are huge...and filled with lots of stuffings. The dinners such as backed ziti, lasagna, manicotti, etc are really well made. The dinners come with a salad and bread. Soda etc are for sale and typically offer cannolis Prices are more than fair for the quality and size you get. It's primarily take-out but there are a few tables to eat in. The staff is friendly and a happy customer is important to them.More

We all descend on my sister's house the night before Thanksgiving and she orders an enormous veggie lasagna with extra veggies and several different kinds of calzones. It is amazing. You can taste the variety of veggies in the lasagna rather than most places where...all you taste is cheese. The variety of calzones is amazing. We live in PA and I cannot wait for them to get a menu on line so I can try to replicate the stuffings down here. Since many of us run in the Turkey Trot Thanksgiving morning, that dinner is the perfect carb load we need. I think I look forward to Portofino's food more than Thanksgiving dinner!More
