We took my mom to Portalia
We took my mom to Portalia for brunch on Mother's Day and had an amazing time. The food, service and ambiance were outstanding. The crabcakes are a "must have"! Then again, so is the French toast...ok, everything was simply delicious! We're going back for dinner! :-)

Best brunch in the borough!
I brunch here often - the best bottomless brunch special with nice champagne and delicious food! Most of the staff has been there longterm and the manager is always on-hand, very friendly and attentive.

I went on a romantic date to Portalia. It is located in a nice neighborhood and was quiet which we loved. The waiter was very nice and food was good. Only issue was that most of the wines my girl asked for were not available. Although she liked the wine she finally had.

Great Neighborhood Restaurant
Love, love, love Portalia! This is a neighborhood gem with great food and ambiance. In addition to their regular brunch and dinner menu, they always have great appetizers and entre specials, happy hour (half price drinks and gourmet appetizers at the bar) and wonderful weekend brunch. The staff is more than accommodating and willing to go the extra mile to make their patrons happy. The proprietors, George and Antonio, have a great passion for their restaurant and it really shows in their menu and gorgeous décor. I've been there on date night with my husband, family members and large groups and they never disappoint.

We met a local friend at Portalia
We met a local friend at Portalia at their recommendation, and enjoyed it very much. Very nice ambience, food was very good and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The owner or manager (?) was very kind, friendly and had excellent recommendations. Modest wine selection but some nice unusual choices such as the Carmignano we enjoyed. We will definitely go back next time we are in Astoria.

Nice food, nice service
Our food was quite good and the service was excellent. The owner even came over and talked to us and recommended a wine (and it wasn't an expensive bottle - it was quite good and paired well with our food). Our entire party of five was happy with their food. All of us would return.

I always pass by this restaurant on a weekend. My fiance and I decided we would try this restaurant for our mother's birthday. The food was deliciouss! The tiramisu was also really good. I would definitely go back again. Yummy!

A good neighborhood eatery
This restaurant was recommended by a friend who has eaten there with her family. It was our anniversary and we wanted to go someplace local. The grilled calamari was outstanding and the branzino was very tasty. The room is very cheerful, an appealing atmosphere. I would recommend it and I would go back.

Great Astoria Brunch
During the week, Portalia opens at 3.
But we found brunch at 11 to be fabulous. Each dish was very high leve, generous, fresh, and delicious. The prices are reasonable. We got great service, with two little ones along for the event. Could not have been a better staff.
