My wife and I were staying at the marina for the fourth of July holiday weekend. We went to the Portofino Restaurant after a long day of being on the water watching the boat races. We didn't have reservations but were able to get seats at the bar which was fine with us. We both had salads and pizza for... More

This is available only to members and guests of the Longboat Key Club. It is OK Italian food. Very noisy when full. Service is fair - the Club understaffs.

My wife and I went to dinner with my mom and we just wanted to sit at the bar to eat. Jordan was a fantastic host. A great bartender and fun conversationalist. They were very busy that evening, so Manager Katie Slingsby had to take over the pizza oven for a bit; preparing pizzas right before our eyes and popping... More

We didn't have a reservation (I don't recommend that) it is longboat keys most popular restaurant and for good reason. We sat at a high top by bar. Bartender Jordan was amazing. He handled the entire restaurant drink orders and served the high top tables. His recommendations were spot on, one of the best restaurants we have ever eating at!... More

We had 7 people for dinner. This restaurant can get busy so book ahead. The Italian food is excellent. Desserts were excellent and the wine list is good. If you're waiting for your reservation take a walk along the dock in front of the restaurant. There are a lot of large boats worth looking at. Overall a high quality meal... More

This restaurant is very nice. It's a more casual dining theme and the foods great. You can see the harbor right outside of the windows. It's so pretty at sunset. Thanks staff for making the food. Keep up the excellent work

We dined here for my birthday and the evening was perfect. The atmosphere was pleasant, not over done and not plain. Our table overlooked the yacht harbor. The food was tasty and well presented. I had the Veal Limone and my husband enjoyed the Caciucco with a shared Caesar salad. Service was impeccible. Wait staff was attentive, but not intrusive.... More
