Background: Dinner with a friend after attending a wake. The Place: Off the main drag, easy to find but a nightmare to find parking. Place is tightly packed, but just managable. The Service: Excellent. Staff was very personable, quick and on par. Owner came by and introduced himself and made sure everything was going well. The Food: Awesome. Portions were... More

Service was very good, and we didn't have to wait long for our meals. During later dinner hours it can be crowded but reasonably comfortable. Nice place... More

Good during the week with a buy one get one free menu. Is it the best Italian restaurant in Staten Island no far from it but the buy one get one free menu is well worth it but it's cash only. Beverages are a little pricey I guess that's where they make up for their buy one get one free.... More

The food has been consistently good for many years now. Every time we go we are always confident that our meal will be enjoyable. I think I've had most of the dishes on the menu over the years but there are some items that you just must try. The Asian crusted calamari is a fantastic spicy, crispy fried calamari with... More

We do visit here often. Weekly special has a BOGO menu, cash only. Food is always good. Portions are nice size. House salad is great. Sangria is delicious. Staff is great and friendly. We usually request Alyssa she treats us like family.

The wait was longer than I expected for a Tuesday evening . The 18th avenue feast tasted more like the Bowery feast! The sausage was cut very thin and tasteless in the "" soupy "" bowl it was served in. The rigatoni floated in the soupy broth .There was an abundance of broccalirab but skimpy on the tasteless sausage.The waitress... More

I've been eating at Portabello for many years now. I cannot ever remember having a bad meal. We have had so many different dishes on the various menus over the years and they have all been very good. The service is great. The small bar has a decent selection and the drinks are never skimpy. Not a great wine list... More
