Came thinking they'd be using their regular menu for the night, but instead ended up paying around 150 dollars for food between two people. The food is good, but make sure to ask if they are using a special menu for the night.

The food was pretty good overall, but the level of service wasn't what I expected paying the price I did. Also 1 average size at best crab cake for 14.00? I would of expected at least 2 for only 2 people. However, being my first time I would still recommend and return. Shrimp risotto was exceptional!

Amazing food and service. We had the short ribs with risotto and the ravioli with pear and ricotta. Best short ribs I ever had and the ravioli was exceptional.
I cannot say enough about the food and service. *

A great neighborhood restaurant, everything on the menu is delicious, and the specials daily are outstanding. We have been going there for years, very friendly people and for these times we are living with Covid, they take very good care in having sanitizer
on the tables and masks of course.

Highly recommend it.

Caffe Portofino is by far one of the best restaurants in Miami. The food is always exquisite and the wine list is perfectly curated. Mauricio, the owner, is extremely welcoming and makes sure his patrons leave with a great and memorable dining experience.

Beef Ravioli was great! They immediately sat us down at a corner table. The attention was very appreciated. The price was good too. Celebrated my son's girlfriend's graduation and the chef surprised her with a lava dessert congratulating her!! Glad to have found another sweet spot in my neighborhood. Will revisit again!
