The restaurant serves reasonable food and gives reasonable service. We were not impressed by our first visit there, nor where we disappointed. It was what we expected. The taste was predictable. The inside of the restaurant is nice and clean.

Portofino is an Italian restaurant runned by enthousiastic and profesionnal people. They have a variety of good menu's. The pizza Bolognese (doublefolded pizza with a good filled spaghetti inside) is recommended.

Great choices on the menu. We had a minestrone soup, caprese salad, calzone speciale, spaghetti arrabiata, spaghetti aglio e olio, and a pizza Fantasia, which is the chef's choice. They were all delicious but the Fantasia was the best. It was huge, quite thin, with...More
