My wife and I and four friends found ourselves back at Portofino's for another great dining experience. Between the six of us we had, Tilapia with veggies, 2 Tilapia with angel hair pasta, Eggplant parmesan, and 2 Veal cutlets. Each meal got rave reviews by those ordering them. The little "free" appetizers that are served in the beginning are really a nice tasty touch. Their salads are equally nice with your choice of dressing. The water, ice tea, and soft drink glasses never run dry. A Waiter is always filling them which is nice to get use to. After dinner I splurged a little on my diet and ordered some type of ice-cream and 6 spoons to share. It was awesome. We will continue to go back as they are incredible. Best time of day, (yes, they do take reservations) is early. Very popular spot, I would suggest arriving at 5:00 PM. Bon Appetite.

Went here for the first time last night with a group including an older person from Chicago that has eaten at some great Italian restaurants. We were all very impressed with the food, presentation and service. Everything from the bread to dessert was outstanding. The chefs pay attention to quality and presentation. The food was very reasonably priced. On Friday and Saturday nights you are treated to live music from a fellow playing a guitar and singing a variety of songs in English and Italian. Perfect background music. The tables are covered by linen table cloths. Nice touch. The chairs are very comfortable. They are also able to accommodate a large group in the back. You simply cannot go wrong choosing this fine restaurant.

We liked the atmosphere, the caring staff, and above all the excellent food. On occasion the Head Waiter, who has an excellent voice will treat us with an aria. Just a great place!!!

The title of this review says it all. We are frequent diners during "the season" and find that the food is as genuine Italian as you are going to find in the area. All servers are attentive. You will feel like family on your second or third visit.
