Taking into consideration where it is then this is an extremely good restaurant in relative terms.
Clean fresh interior although a little sterile. Nice terrace if the weather is good, attentive and professional waiters and a good wide menu of quality choices. Their fresh fish in particular is very good as is the tartar.
Highly recommended if you are nearby.

Medium level environment, 80s style maybe a little bit out of fashion.
Personnel very serviceful, food is good. Suggested the raw fish (tartare, shrimps, scampi) as appetizer. Good choice, but not cheap-

We have been going to Il Portico for many years, since it was in the previous location (it moved sometime around 2008); I preferred the old farmhouse where it was before but I admit that now it is extremely convenient; it is right next to the A1 highway exit (Sesto Fiorentino-Calenzano) and parking is abundant.
Remo, the owner/chef, really knows his business and, over the years, has built a solid clientele base.
The decoration is somewhat impersonal.
Service is excellent (most of the employees are somehow Remo's family relations).
The wine list is more than adequate.
It is one of the few places where you can comfortably choose fish or meat from the menu; the ingredients will always be top quality, fresh and skillfully prepared. The quality has remained consistently high over the years.
I do not have a very sweet tooth but I always make sure to leave some room to enjoy some of the offerings from the outstanding trolley of (rigorously homemade) desserts.
