We were driving to Jekyll Island and stopped in East Ridge for the night. The hotel suggested a few different restaurants and Portofino's was the first one we found. Was this our lucky day! My husband had the seafood canniloni and I had mine stuffed chicken/spinich. They were HUGE portions plus they came with piping hot bread sticks. Wine was only $4 - $5 a glass. Service was fast and very friendly. We also stopped here on our return home. Not because of the hotel but for this restaurant. On this stop we added the chicken soup which is a thick creme with lots of chiicken and just delicious. Again we couldn't eat everything so the waitress happily packaged the leftover for us and gave us extra bread sticks. In fact, she asked if we minded her filling up the soup containers for us! Wow. We also bought a bottle of their seasoned olive oil which is the same as they served for dipping the bread sticks.

We ate here on Feb 25 and Mar 3, 2013. Service and food was outstanding both times. Plenty of free parking and right off the interstate. I look forward to our next trip to Georgia so we can eat here again.

This restaurant is tops on food and service,as evidenced by the long line at peek dinner time. We always go around 5pm to beat the crowd. One visit for anyone would tell the story. The only other Italian restaurant in the area that is in Soddy Daisy, Flavors of Italy as far as excellent food, and value.

This is a family friendly Greek/Italian restaurant. The pizza/salad bar is a wonderful bargain. It had a small but fresh salad selection and several different kinds of pizza, including a dessert pizza. The waitress was very friendly and efficient, and she even asked if there was any special kind of pizza she could add to the pizza bar for us. A half pitcher of beer was only $4.50. What a bargain!

Really enjoyed our Italian and Greek specialties in this little gem. We had the greatest little waitress and she anticipated our every need. Loved the Spanakopita and Bakalva. Hubby got Italian that he thought was amazing. Will be back for sure.

A nicely decorated Greek/Italian themed atmosphere, well lit. Friendly and efficient service. Obviously owned by a very friendly and happy Greek family. We had a Spanakopia meal and a Pastitsio meal and both were delicious and authentic. The menu was an excellent mix of Italian and Greek specialities including pizzas. Prices were very good. Highly recommend! Just west of I-75 exit #1 north of GA line in TN.
