Let me start out by saying how embarrassed I am for my friend who was celebrating her 90th birthday and the rudeness of the owner and hostess was totally uncalled for. This was a surprise for a 90 year old friend who we knew wanted to celebrate her birthday at her favorite restaurant. She had been a long time customer... More

Friendly service, good Italian food. Certainly not gourmet but well prepared and decent portion sizes (not super large). Soup is usually excellent. Prices seem reasonable.

I was there for lunch with a small group on Wed. March 15. This website said lasagna was a special on Wed. and Thurs. The server swore it was only Thursday and the price was higher than the price quoted on this website. This apparently is false advertising and the server wasn't very nice either. Poor place to eat!

Good foods. Nice place. Great service. Red sauces are thick and properly sweet. Vitello Pizzaiola with veggies was delicious. Could use a few more wines on the list. We've been looking for a reliable family-style Italian place here in senior-ville for years and this works for

We ate here while in town for Spring Training. The menu is pretty pricey so we both got the special of the day, spaghetti. We are not drinkers, so probably disappointed the waitress with only getting water. We noticed that everyone else was getting a small plate of bread and had to ask if that was something we could also... More

We walked in the door and the owner met us and recognized us from last November. Seated 6 of us without reservations immediately. We had six different meals and every one was plate licking good. Sausage and Peppers were really good. Service was quite excellent. Owned and operated by an Italian family. Recommend without hesitation.

This was my first visit to Portofino's and I was pleasantly surprised. They had excellent dinner specials and they also offered a full menu. I was impressed that they had live entertainment. Also having tablecloths on the tables was a very nice touch. The food was very good and the service was excellent! I think it will become a regular... More

Went with 3 other couples for Valentine dinner. Was looking forward to their seafood linguine, but only a special menu was available for the special night. Did try the clam linguine with marinara sauce. The borchetta was first served and it was good. Linguine was good, with lots of clams. Sauce could have used some more garlic for my taste,... More

Four of us ate here on my birthday, December 24. Because of the holiday, they had a limited menu, but we all found something to eat. The food was good, and so was the service. We interacted with the table behind us, which had a new born December baby whose mother was also born in December.
