Great food and great service.
When it is not busy the tacky music is a distraction.. ravioli with pear was delicious .. chicken parmigiana good
I’ve been going to this restaurant for years. The staff and its owner are amazing. They always welcome you as family. The meals are always unique and constantly changing as is their wine selection. I highly recommend it
Celebrated a special occasion, the staff was very accommodating and took care of everything. Fabulous service! Chicken Parmigiana with Pink Sauce was the favorite and Tiramisu for dessert was spectacular.
Cafe Portofino is always wonderful. The service is outstanding. The food is remarkable without being fussy or pretentious. If you want to dine rather than just eat, if you want to be able to carry on a conversation, if you want to relax and not be rushed, if you want a dinner that will remind you of some of your favorite neighborhood places in Italy... then you want to visit Cafe Portofino.
nice family run place good food good service
hidden in strip mall owrth the effort to find
You can NEVER go wrong in this restaurant! Awesome mushroom appetizer!!
Excellent food, great service, and very good location! The ambience was incredible and the staff was very welcoming and attentive. The selection of wines was exquisite and the chef outdid himself!! I had an excellent time, will be coming again very soon! Highly recommend this spot for a nice dinner.
Food, wine list and service all outstanding! Some of the best risotto we’ve ever had!
Food is good although it has certain dishes with overpowering sauces. Italian food is always light and just the required amount of sauce in their preparation.
We went early, had theater tickets. Surprised they have a very good early special that includes salad, entree and glass of wine. Meal was delicious. Try the Sea Bass in lemon caper sauce... it will not disappoint! Also the Osso Bucco...friends loved it!
We love this place, fantastic food and service always a great experience
Excellent. And personal attention, as always. I can not go wrong with this choice.
The food is always consistently great. Service is amazing and the ambiance is fine dining with a casual welcome feeling. !!
Overall good but a little noisy! Pasta fagiole soup was slightly salty! They were out of pistachio ice cream which was on the menu!
Just a decent neighborhood Italian restaurant. Hit and miss on most dishes ( but the tri-colorie salad is a joke).
This is such a nice neighborhood restaurant. The owner is always making sure you are happy. The food is good and the service is great. We love to go for a quiet and tasty treat!
Always great food and service. Delicious sea bass tonight.
A great place to always go to eat!
Had an 8 PM reservation. Service was great. Food and wine were excellent. Chorizo risotto a must have.
Excellent hidden gem in the area. Serví e is always great and food is amazing.
It’s been a few years since our last visit- excellent as before!
Have recommended it often, dine there frequently with friends. Service and food is always superb
great food ... excellent service. great wine selection
The food and service are always good- but prices seem high for the setting and location.
Mauricio and his staff are committed to excellent service.
The menu is varied and the daily specials are always great options. The food is great and consistent.
Cafe Portofino never disappoints. The wine list is phenomenal and the service is as well. The risotto is light and flavorful. Seriously everything is good.
Service was terrible. We had a large party and there were two other parties and they could not handle it. Additional servers should have been on hand when accepting reservations for three large tables.
Years ago we were regulars. It was good. We recently returned with our grown children for dinner. It was better than I remembered. The food was excellent. Great beef carpaccio and great wine selection. But the star of the evening was the braised ribs with Rissotto it was amazing! The ravioli pasta with pear is wonderful. Honestly I had forgotten what a great neighborhood gem this was. We will be returning again as regulars! I would highly recommend for business dinner, date night or celebration event.
If you want great service and excellent food, Caffe Portofino is the place to go. Pleasantly greeted at the door & courteously accompanied to the table. Immediately we were given menus and asked if we wanted drinks. Recommend the pear ravioli and either the veal picara or Marsala. .The pasta was perfectly cooked and the creamy sauce was delicious. The veal was tender and full of flavors. Definitely coming back.
Espectacular everything is fantastic. Food and service are out of this world
It’s a great restaurant, the food is excellent and the service is always incredible. Great ambiance!
Mother’s Day dinner was served quickly and efficiently. Food was on par with any local Italian restaurant. Overall, a nice reasonably priced restaurant.
This restaurant is never a disappointment.
I had reservations but waited 40 minutes for a table . I have had other dinners here that were great but this time they dropped the ball.
Very disappointed. Full review on trip advisor but we went early for our anniversary dinner to save money on the early bird menu and were led astray by a waiter who kindly offered to throw a couple of meatballs in my husband’s spaghetti dinner and then charged us a $14 up charge for three meatballs turning his $30 meal into a $44 meal. It was really a shame because my food was delicious but we feel completely taken advantage of and will not be back. Not a happy anniversary for us thanks to Brady.
Ate there twice in the last month. I violated my rule and ordered the pear ravioli both times. Seriously yummy! House Sauvignon Blanc was really good, though last time my daughter treated me to a bottle of my daughter’s go to Pinot Noir. Extremely good service. Just love this place!!!!
Excellent food and outstanding service.
There is nothing we haven’t tried that isn’t delicious! The service is superb!! We had our baby shower there and absolutely love it!!! Highly recommend!
Excellent meal and excellent service!
