“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Nothing to say more.. The chief was doing his job perfectly.The restaurant has old decoration but friendly atmosphere and u can feel that they do their good job.

Food was excellent.We had home made pasta with special sauce and fantastic lamp .The wine is from chianti. Despite all good things,we paid very resonable price.

“Worst Italian ever AVOID”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

There has to be something seriously wrong with tripadvisor when Portofino is ranked so high (15th when I checked) among restaurants in Frankfurt. What a waste of time and money. Surly servers, overcooked pasta, greasy sauces and slow service made for one of my worse dining experiences ever. So how does this anomaly happen? Draw your own conclusions........

“Great Italian Resturant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We ate at this resturant 4 out of the 5 nights we were in Germany! We would choose another and then think how good Portpfino was and go back!The menu was extensive for a small resturant,the wine great,The staff very pleasant and the choice of eating inside or out was nice.
I had a simply divine fish dish ...encased in salt and cracked and skined by our server...so delectable!!!

“Italian heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Try to visit this restaurant every time I visit family in Frankfurt!! Although small it is always busy and the food is first rate. The pasta dishes are scrumptious and the pizzas are a delight. The staff are very helpful and extremely friendly and the atmosphere makes this little restaurant a delight to dine in!!
