Portofino has been one of our favorites for years. It's a hidden gem. Great food, great service, and right in our backyard. We have never been disappointed.

Been coming here on and off for a few years. Excellent fine dining.
Favorites: rack of lamb, fillet mignon, meat lasagna....
I have to say one of my favorites in the shrimp bisque (my husband says the best he's ever had !) and the chicken rolatini (crab stuffed chicken)... It melts in your mouth, not sure how they manage to get chicken to taste this amazing.
It's a small, private and fine restaurant with amazing flavors and really exquisite food.
Very nice change to the chain restaurants that are in this area!

My husband went to this restaurant for the first time this weekend to celebrate our anniversary. It was a rainy night and it is close to our home. We were delighted by how varied and interesting the menu was. We had decided on our entrees when the waiter listed that day's specials. Then we had to decide all over again as everything sounded delicious!

We each ordered an appetizer and an entree and everything was delicious. The service also was impeccable and we finished off our meal with a chocolate lava cake that we both loved.

I highly recomend this little gem.

What a wonderful restaurant near the Falls. Food was outstanding and service was excellent. We ate outside as the weather was perfect....surprised that the restaurant had some nice plants to make it feel as if we were not near the parking lot. Staff was very friendly.
