Excellent place for lunch or dinner. Great salads, homemade soups and prime rib. Drinks from the bar are well priced. Nice service.

Spend the entire summer eating here and enjoying the golf course. The servers are friendly and the food is good. I have been eating here for years and have never had a bad meal. Highly recommend.

On a golf course so quite unexpected. Good food for lunch and dinner. I personally like the soup and sandwich (BLT) is one of my favorites. The staff is very friendly; it is always a pleasure to dine there

Portofino should be on the “must try” list for anyone in the area. It is truly a “hidden” gem! I happened to stumble onto it four years ago while staying in LaPorte for a Notre Dame football weekend. It is now on the top of my list every time I am in the area and look forward to dining there... More

The food is outstanding and atmosphere very good. This was my second visit here and prime rib was cooked perfectly. My husband had salmon which he also enjoyed.

Very good menu offerings at a reasonable price. A place many locals go to celebrate a special occasion. Excellent service and quality food. Located on Briar Leaf golf course. Nice deck overlooking course. One of Laporte's better eateries.

I have never had a bad meal at Portofinos. The salmon is incredible and the servers are excellent and give you the time to sit and enjoy a cocktail and each course of the meal without rushing you through!

We were in town for a concert up the road at Four Winds. We had no idea if we needed a reservation for the restaurant and were happy to be accommodated as a walk-in. The menu was available in our hotel room and looked diverse and good. It was. I had the salmon and my husband had the duck salad.... More

Service was great, food was very good and the atmosphere was really was awesome. I didn't think the price was bad for the value. I would go back again

This golf course restaurant was a delight. I had lake perch and my wife had chicken carbonara. Other than the pasta portion being too large, the meal was excellent. The fish was fried and very flavorful, like grandma used to do. The setting is pleasant and clean looking with great views.

Thank Gary S
