There were 10 of us, celebrating college graduation. We had a reservation. The table was ready on time. The server was very attentive. And patient. When asked for advise about wine, I was offered to try both of them and choose. Then the owner told a story (from his past) about one of the wines. It was so much fun!... More

Took my partner there for Mothers Day, even though they were swamped the service and food was outstanding. We will return and make this a regular stop.The atmosphere was warm and cozy and enjoyed every moment. I highly recommend the Seafood Pesto with hand made Linguini.

Went here recently with a friend and had a delightful dinner. The restaurant is small and definitely has Italian overtones. We tried a multitude of dishes and enjoyed them all especially the spinach salad. The fish of the day was great, choice of 2 and the other was the chicken risotto. Only bummer was the first 2 wines we ordered... More

We stopped in to Portofino for the first time recently, and were very impressed. Seth, the owner and sommelier, greeted us warmly and put us at a comfortable table. He was friendly and quite social, explaining the history of the restaurant (25 years--one of oldest Italian restaurants in town), and sharing stories. The wine list is extensive, and barely scratches... More

Six of us had dinner there and everyone loved their meal. The pork chops are moist and delicious, the risotto is excellent, very creaming with wonderful flavor (husband and friend shared bites) and I loved my dinner of scampi and homemade ravioli. Their prices are good for a nice restaurant. You need reservations and they will ask for a credit... More

Wow! Had the house made pasta with a delicious spicy marinara and wild mushrooms. My wife, a purist, had the house made pasta and marinara only. My son had the lasagna. I tasted them all and they were all the best I've had in a long time. The sauce was clearly fresh with the individual ingredients perceptable, but blended. The... More

Had the house-made pasta and sausage with a spicy marinara sauce... it was excellent. The pasta was light and thin and far surpassed anything you can buy at the store. Our party of seven had a mix of dishes and the wine paring recommended by the waiter went perfectly with everything. You have to try this place when in Portland.

There are a few very authentic Italian restaurants in Portland and Portofino is one of them. It has been the closest to feeling like being in a cafe in Italy that I have been to in years. My daughter and I made 6 pm dinner reservations, that were sadly unnecessary as the place was pretty empty on a beautiful Saturday... More

I read all the reviews, looked at all the pictures, and read about each restaurant what the had to say about their establishments. After a couple of days of doing so I... More
