Went on a Friday evening our waiter Anthony was exceptional. I had the seared scallops and the wife had a bugatine pasta. In both cases we had a very different experience with taste. Both dishes were prepared with a combination of foods/flavors that we would normally not have. It was all very good. The staff wished us a happy anniversary... More

Bucatini all’Amatriciana may be the best Italian meal I have ever had. The Calabrese Pepper in this dish offered a taste that I had never had before but can't wait to have it again. The ambience of this restaurant in the Buckhead neighborhood just added to the overall experience. If you haven't been here before, try it because it will... More

If you have followed me you know that before I left Atlanta 5+ years ago, this was my weekly neighborhood restaurant for about 10 years ( opening - until I moved away). I was visiting Atlanta a few months ago and dinned here feeling like it was a week not five years since I had been here last... I visited... More

My man and I are from Miami and we visited Atlanta for a vacation. We stayed in Downtown Atlanta for the first few days, then stayed in Buckhead. We found this restaurant on google search. It had 4.5 stars out of 26 reviews. Usually I don't go for a place that has less than 60 reviews, but we were optimistic.... More

We were all starved when we arrived. Much to our pleasure they have an extensive wine list and excellent choices particularly of Italian wines. We each had salads and we're surrprsed by the excellent Blueberry vinaigrette...tart but tasty. The Entres were all delicious. My ahi tuna was fabulous... forbidden rice with a light lemon sauce and a Salsa-style relish with... More

I had been going to Portofino since Michael and Dina opened 16 years ago... It was my favorite place in Atlanta and I dined there almost weekly for 11 years. Then I retired and moved away and had not been back in 5 years... When I walked in the door with friends (who had never dined there) I was greeted... More
