I like this place because it's a family run restaurant and I support local businesses. The decor and atmosphere is nice Italian. And you may hear some Italian conversations while you are there. They have special dishes and of course the usual Italian food. It's right off the interstate. Nice place, give it a try.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express down the road and the desk clerk recommended Portofino's as an excellent place to eat. He was correct! There were so many items to choose from it was hard to decide. We opted for the steak calzone and a gyro. Both were excellent. They were obviously made fresh, not some reheated frozen thing... More

One of my enjoyments while on vacation is eating at different or unusual restaurants. So, when we visited East Ridge, TN, I did not hesitate to dine at Portofino's. It was clear that they had "the regulars" as well as new guests, but everyone was treated with the same hospitality. I was expecting to be served a small portion, so... More

We make it part of our plan to stop at this restaurant on our way from Illinois to Florida and return. Very good Italian meals with good portions. Wait staff was very polite and helpful.

We had the salad/pizza bar at our first visit. The salad bar had a larger variety items than most. All items were well stocked and very clean. The pizza bar likewise. While sitting at the table I watched the ladies check the bar each time someone went to get a plate. The ladies working there would ask if you would... More

Usually eat here about once a year when visiting family in the area. It's a good place with good service. Prices are fair. Food tastes good. Decor is old. On the most recent trip (first time at lunchtime), tried the soup/salad/pizza bar. Bean soup was excellent. Salad was fairly basic. Pizza should have been replenished 15 minutes prior. Our choices...

We are traveling and stopped for the night at east ridge Chattanooga TN. The hotel clerk suggested this restaurant. Great choice. The food and portions were outstanding. The bread they brought for dipping in olive oil and spices was hot and soft. It made the bread sticks at olive garden look like stale old bread. The alfrado sauce was not... More

Had the Greek salad with grilled chicken - it was delicious and huge, had to take at least half of it home with me. The breadsticks are awesome! Husband had an appetizer platter with stuffed grape leaves, gyro, pita, olives, feta, sausage and a huge bowl of tzatziki- yummy and enough for two for a meal - took a lot... More
