Eat here and enjoy a meal of a life time. The chef here realy nows his stuff. Each dish was more mouth watering then the one before. Try the portobello mushurooms they were outstanding. The fish was excellent. Three cheers for this place.

“Portofino restaurant - wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2004

Portofino Italian restaurant was not listed in the Lexington restaurants, so I wanted to make sure everyone knows that it is a fantastic restaurant and is located in a converted warehouse right downtown (249 E. Main Street). You can dine in or eat on the patio, but no matter what you get it will be delicious. I recommend it very highly.
