Sauces are good, but the clams, muscles and veal we chose were not the best quality. Huge fresh salads eminently splitable. Deserts not homemade. Cake delivery never arrived night we were there. Watch where you sit. Tables are cramped and most have an outside seat on a server or guest pathway or, worse, near the kitchen doors. Can be expensive... More

The owners and employees of this restaurant are really nice and make every effort to make you feel welcome. We had a group of 12 and everyone was happy with their meal. The salads were fresh, simple and large. The bread is outstanding. The interior has been updated since last year. We enjoyed our time there and will definitely return.... More

Great neighborhood restaurant. Very good service with a complete Italian menu. Also, wonderful take out Pizza. I believe the best "Red Sauce" in Morris County.

Have been a few times and each time I throughly enjoy the entire meal. Last night I have the Shrimp Fra Diabolo, that was excellent. Just the right spice and a generous portion. One of the other people we were with also had the same dish, said he was cutting back on carbs, but finished all of the dish including... More

Just left the restaurant, but will be returning. This place is a little slice of heaven. From the staff to the excellence of the food. I had a flounder stuffed dish that I will return for, while my husband had a chicken entree. Large portion along with reasonable prices. Meals are accompanied with bread and a fried zucchini in olive... More

I had the chicken franchise and was very disappointed a few weeks ago. More recently we stuck to basic pasta dishes and they turned out much better. I will stay away from any specials as the appetizer we had was terrible- could have been made better by just adding more or even providing a sauce. I hope they can turn... More

We have been coming to Portofino for over 30 years and have been loving it. However new owners took charge recently and therefore it warrants a new updated review. The new owner, Lisa had made some very positive physical changes. The outside has been painted and the inside has a new, much warmer decor. The menu is almost the same... More

I just enjoyed a delicious dinner at Portofino’s last night in a residential section of Morristown, NJ. I had the Chicken Julia and it tasted fresh and tender. Chicken Julia is chicken breast with cherry tomatoes, broccoli and mushrooms. The gravy tasted delicious too. The dinners did not come with salads. We did get a small appetizer of sautéed mushrooms... More

This was the first time my husband & I tried this restaurant. We were there on a Wednesday for dinner. The restaurant is not very large so if we went on a weekend, we would definitely call for reservations. We were greeted quickly & seated at a nice table. There seems to be "3 sections" of seating in this restaurant.... More

Portofino was a regular Italian food restaurant many years ago, but for some reason we stopped going. Recently, I saw a Groupon for Portofino and decided to give it a whirl. Went with a family of four on a Sunday night. The restaurant was pretty crowded at the early sitting but we did not feel at all crowded. The service... More
