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.

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... 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... More

These guys have their pizzas on point... Huge variety of specialty pies. A bunch of options for toppings: Carmalized onions, feta cheese, baby spinach, Sundried tomatoes... Way More variety than your typical pizza joint.

I have been here a total of three times. Each time I have gotten their meatball grinder, and each of those times something has been consistently wrong with it. I will preference this by saying each time I was there they were extremely busy so I can understand how this happens, but it certainly is no excuse for three separate... More
