We sat at the bar and enjoyed good service and wine. We asked our waitress if she thought the singer was too loud and she seemed so uncomfortable answering. Reconsider the music - it was a little cheesy and detracted from an otherwise consistent go to place.

We enjoyed our dinner. Very tasty! Our waiter, was great! The decor is dated, and in a strip mall, so not a great ambiance, but the food was good, with some nice surprises!

This place is a small and a fine dining restaurant. I went there last Sunday early evening with a friend , after spending the day at the carnival. The menu consists of a combination of veal, chicken, beef and seafood. We started with the Risotto Balls, with spinach, mozzarella cheese with marinara sauce, it was excellent, pretty much just melted... More

Nicer inside than it looks from outside. A cozy, old fashioned kind of interior, which I like. The food was very good, particularly the saltimbocca, which they were kind enough to make with chicken (vs. veal) on request. The Italian nachos were an interesting appetizer too! Our server was named Cathy (if I remember correctly!) and she was super.........!!

Food is good, nothing exceptional. Very nice atmosphere, excellent service. Weekday specials are good value, two entrées with bottle wine, under $45. Will order from regular menu next time to try something different. Don't be fooled by exterior. Inside is beautiful!

Elizabeth of Portofino (formerly Portofino’s Tuscan Grille) was not a favorite and we’re not likely to return. I had the filet with garlic butter, which was undercooked and lukewarm. I asked to have it cooked another minute, and it came out cooked perfectly, but the dollop of garlic butter (not melted a la mama style) was ice cold. Instead of... More

This was the perfect place for a romantic dinner for two. Portofino's came highly recommended, and we were not disappointed. The drinks and food were absolutely delicious! Highly recommend, and will definitely be back next time we are in the area.

Based on all of the great reviews & some word of mouth, my wife & I decided to try it. Although set in a strip mall, the back half of the restaurant reminded us of a homey grandma's dining room. The service was very good. However, the food was average. We felt that each course/meal needed a little something extra.... More

I like local places and I'll be back to this one. $43 special for two meals and a bottle of wine. Nice local place clean and attentive staff wanting to please you. Sister had the Scrod and I had the veal parm. The Calamari was nice and light and not chewy at all nicely done. Dinners were fresh. Bread was... More

I had GF veal parm snd rigatoni--- delicious. My date (who is not GF) had the chicken gnocchi (that WERE GF) and it was delicious. I was... More
