Its really hard to find something on the menu that doesnt have pancetta in it or covered in cheese. Salad greens were wilted and covered in blue cheese. I ordered the kale salad and it had two tiny specks of kale and the rest spinach. The person delivering it didnt know the name of the salad so I didnt think... More

Dinner with friends on a recent Saturday night. We ate outside overlooking the water and marina. Setting is delightful. Unfortunately, not clear the chefs know how to cook. Appetizer of bruschetta had what tasted like bland canned salsa on top. Most fish preparations were overly heavy and unappealing. I opted for the veal scallops in lemon. They arrived overcooked to...

This restaurant is part of the Longboat Key Club and unless you are a member or a guest of th Hotel you can't eat there. Nice setting by the Marina and good menu. My favorite are the Veal Limone and any Pizza.

I made a reservation at Portifino with hesitation because the reviews were mixed. However, I thought my meal was excellent. We started with the caprese salad which was great. I had the grouper which was fresh and delicious. Another person in my party had the pizza, and he thought it was great. The setting was nice and the service was... More

We arrived at the Longboat Key Club & Resort late afternoon and staff recommended Portfino for dinner. Since we could not get a reservation until later than we wanted, we went early and took a chance on openings at the bar. Good move and ended up pleased with this decision. The restaurant was hopping and crowded with a large birthday... More

As we were staying at the LBKC we were anxious to give this restaurant a try. It looks fabulous from the outside, nice decor internally, and the staff are very friendly and efficient. So why not a 5 star review - the food, whilst perfectly acceptable, does not have any 'wow' factor, nothing really stood out and it is fairly... More

Friends Dick & Ruthie Cushing were lifelong residents, and I visited often staying at the Holiday Inn. The marina is such a nice setting for the Portfino, I just love the club and the resort. I enjoyed a glass of red in remembrance of my friends. I had a chicken special with pasta.

The place is in an absolutely beautiful marina, so all you need to do is serve quality food with a good service and you are in business. Not the case for us. I ordered pizza and I regret doing so! This was the worse pizza I have ever had. It actually tasted like it was frozen and just thrown into... More

Visited as part of our week's vacation on Longboat Quay. We were very happy with all aspects of this restaurant. Food, setting, service and cost. We ate quite early so the place was quiet and our waiter had plenty time to make us feel welcome.

We stayed at the Longboat Key Club Resort and this restaurant came highly recommended. It was our last night before hitting Orlando and so we got the hotel to book us a table. First of all entering the restaurant it was extremely noisy and we couldn't hear each other talk!! We ordered starters and these were passable but when we... More
