“The "Two for one" menu can't be beat!”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

The special "Two for One" menu available Mondays through Thursdays is very popular among Staten Islanders. Meals begin with a family style salad accompanied by Italian bread which can be slathered with roasted garlic or butter. The special menu includes excellent veal parmigiana and what they call "Da Best" chicken parm. Both are huge and are accompanied by your choice of pasta. Despite the lack of street parking, It's no wonder that Portobello is so popular.

“I'd go back”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

Went here with my sister and mom because of a really great deal we found on groupon, and were pleasantly surprised! The service was attentive yet not overbearing, and the waiter was able to recommend items & joke around with us, which I likes. Atmosphere was ok, seems like they need a little updating. Beautiful ceiling, but I didn't care for the computer-printed notices everywhere by the hostess booth regarding dress code and whatever else, it looked sloppy. Food was great! We ordered mozzarella & carozza, wraps and a pasta, and it was all delicious. I would go back to try something different... Good lunch specials!

“Very Good Food”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

We've never been disappointed with the food. From the appetizers to desserts it has always been very good. During the week they have a 2 for 1 special (cash only). On weekends they have a price fix menu along with their regular menu. For $75.00 you get an appetizer, entree, dessert with coffee and a bottle of wine for two. You can't beat this offer, especially when everyone is watching where they spend their money. Overall its a very good Italian restaurant with an extensive menu to choose from.
