You cannot go wrong at Portovino. This is a restaurant run by un Toscano who lives to serve fresh authentic cucina italiana the way it is in Italy not Brooklyn. This is the real deal and it's a family affair, mamma and brother shuttle back and forth to help in the kitchen, often bringing the freshest ingredients with them. Make it a point to come during truffle season, tartuffi bianchi are the best!
This is a host that would rather serve 25 dinners a night done correctly than 50 with reheated pastas. So comwe when you are not in a rush and want to enjoy a truly wonderful meal made with love!!!

From beginning to end an excellent meal and service. Warm atmosphere, kind of romantic, good for a second or third date, shows at least determination. Very seductive flow, the wine helps, the unusual parmigiana surprises, and all the rest enhances the meal, if one helps a little to hold the mood, the rest should be most easy and fulfilling.

This is a family run restaurant. They are from Toscana, Italy and have been in Miami for 6 years. The mother is in the kitchen making delicious italian meals, the son acts as waiter/maitre d, and the father is behind the bar. We had one of the best italian meals we've ever had in our lifetime. it,s important to point out that my husband is Italian, so we have been to plenty of restaurants in Italy. Also my mother in law is an excellent cook, so I have a lot to compare from. Don't miss the opportunity of dining here if you are up to eating italian, you won't regret it. I recommend the melanzane a la parmigiana (parmigiana eggplant), the burrata, linguini boscaiola, and for dessert, you are crazy if you miss the mille foglie.

Found the place on tripadvisor and truly enjoyed our evening. Very authentic, frequented by Italians (all the other customers were speaking Italian). Waiter spoke both, knew the menu well, didn't need to write anything down, suggested a nice imported Italian wine that you can only get there. Everything is made to order, very fresh, so keep in mind it's not a rushed evening. In fact the waiter makes this point known early on. Was tricky to find at first as it's in a mini strip mall just past the TJMax. Well worth it.
