This has been our "go to" place for a few years. When in doubt, go to Portofino! It's small, so it gets crowded, we go early and never wait. I enjoy great "old school" Italian (done properly), so I usually order the shrimp parm-best I've ever had. We usually start with a drink or 2, and wine. The service is... More

This fabulous, local, well-established eatery is exceptional. The owner makes you feel like family, greeting almost everyone who walks through the door with a welcome smile, often accompanied by a bearlike hug and followed later by interesting stories. As important, the staff mirrors his devotion and enthusiasm. The meals and the vino, unquestionably, are certain to bring you back time... More

Even though I live in the area, I have not been to Cafe Portofino before. What I have been missing! This restaurant is a gem. The food is great, the wine list is more than adequate and the service could not be better. There is a very personal warmth that you get at this restaurant that is difficult to find... More

Quaint little restaurant on the edge of town. Food is very good and portions are adequate. There is nice variety on the menu and is well prepared. Everyone in our party enjoyed their selection. However, wait staff seemed very disorganized and forgetful. Was not a terribly busy night, and we had to ask our waiter repeatedly for drinks and service... More

The people that run this Restruant are very nice and make you feel attended to. I have been here sporadically over the past 10 years and always had a great meal. This past time was not the same. One of our dishes came out wrong. They were accommodating and remade it and bought us desert but that being said it... More

Reliably good italian food in a simple and charming dining room. We love this place on a cold weekday evening. The house montepulciano is round and rich. My half-Sicilian husband always orders spaghetti and meatballs which must mean it's good. I either order grilled salmon with a side of whole wheat pasta or just the pasta with marinara and some...

I have been going to Cafe Portofino for years. The food has been consistently great. Nice, romantic atmosphere. Jack the owner is the nicest guy! No doubt the best Italian restaurant in Piermont. Highly recommend!
