food is ok, service is ok, but the ambiance is too noisy. Can't hold a conversation.
The dining experience always exceeds our expectations. The specials were delicious. Malanga soup, avocado and feta cheese, seared tuna on a green plantain. It is great to see the same staff through the years, they exemplify great service. We will be back soon. Michelle
100% the best restaurant in all of south miami, it never fails to impress with its incredible service and its exquisite cuisine.
Absolutely amazing food that offers the complete Italian delicacy! If your looking for authentic Italian food you will not be disappointed! Huge delicious portions that are very reasonably priced. A must visit!
Always a wonderful experience here! We live in Palmetto Bay and it is a treasure to have this restaurant in our backyard.
Great service as always. Creative amazing dishes. Always hear the specials before ordering, they are usually outstanding and very creative.
All you would want of a fine-dining restaurant; great food, excellent service and exceptional wines.
The service was excellent and Everyone was very friendly. Food was good.
Not the first time we have dined here. We were seated right away and arrived for a late diner. Having said that, the quality of the food was not good at all. Pasta was over cooked and so was the risotto. The worst was the fillet mignon it was TASTELESS. The meat had zero salt zero pepper zero seasoning. This restaurant is by no means inexpensive and for that price I would have dined at a different t place. So disappointed.
Great place! Service is very good and attentive, food is delicious, extensive wine list, place is clean with good artwork on the walls.
Always an excellent experience at Portofino, service, food, all!
The food was delicious and the service was great! Definitely plan on going back.
We were a party of 9 people: 7 adults and 2 children last Saturday August 11th and it was amazing!!
The ambiance, the wines, the service and the selection of foods..."Mama Mia!! Delizioso", "Squisito".
We had such a great time and would recommend everything that we had from the starters of amazing lightly dusted Fried Calamari served with the Fra Diablo Sauce; Short Ribbed cake which was Shredded Beef Short Rib with Mashed Sweet Potato with a touch of Tarragon Sauce; Malanga soup;
Main courses included the Specials....Lobster,Shrimp and Calamari with freshly made pasta... to die for for; Risotto Dolce Vita; Beef Lasagna; Braised Short Ribs...They catered to the children and from the Kids Menu there was Spaghetti Marinara with meatballs and Chicken Tenders with fries.
Dessert was a selection of Guava Tarts with Vanilla Ice cream; ChocoLava & Red Velvet Lava both served with Vanilla Ice Cream...Decadence!!!
All excellent meals that our group thoroughly enjoyed and we would return in a heartbeat and WILL!!!. We will tell all our friends about this beautiful find.
Food is wonderful. Seafood dishes excellent. Look forward to another visit.
Birthday. Party of 4. Great food and great service. That’s all anyone can ask for.
Great service...delicious short rib!!
With movie plans across the street, we opted to dine at Caffe Portofino in lieu of any of the restaurants at The Falls. We were so glad we did as the food was outstanding. There were 4 of us dining and we all agreed that this restaurant was a great selection and we look forward to returning. It's arguably the best restaurant in the area!
Very good food with very efficient service in a convenient location.
Food and service were really outstanding. We had a group of 8 and every entree was wonderful.
The chef has to be one of the best in Miami to deliver such high quality dishes. Service was also meticulous.
Great wine. Great food. Nice enough ambiance, but not pretentious. For the entre prices, I would think they could throw in a Caesar Salad, but it was not. Overall, I would say, it is a bit pricy, but the food is delicious, so it is worth it. Enjoy.
Caffe Portofino is literally down the street from our house. For some reason, we don't think to go there. Saturday night, we were so happy we ate there. The food was so delicious. The service and ambiance was comparable to a Coral Gables, fancy restaurant. We will definitely go more often. I would also say, a reservation might be necessary. We had a 7:00 reservation when the place had a few diners. But by 8:00, it was full. (They also have an early bird special before 6:30)
The food and service was really good!
Most amazing food. Every dish was delicious and the service is always really good.
We ordered the burrata, veal piccata and the braised beef tortellini.
Never a bad meal. The service is great!!! Love our neighborhood restaurant!! The dulce leche crepe is worth the calories!
Food was good, but extremely overpriced for the quality.
We were a party of nine, and all were pleased with the food and service. I had the Veal Piccata; it was tender and tasty. I had meant to include a take-home item with my dinner order, and forgot; the waiter handled the matter smoothly.
The only negative was the NOISE level. We had trouble hearing each other.
The service was outstanding and the food was creative and delicious. We had the tuna tostones which was perfection and the crab spring roll which was full of actual crab and just fantastic. My husband had the Filet which cooked perfect. I had the fish which was also on point. This was our first time here but definitely not our last.
What an unexpected surprise! We feel we have now found a new gem - our new favorite place! Food was incredible, wine selection was excellent and service was second to none. Highly recommend!
Excellent food and service, we had many beautiful celebrations at this Restaurant. Loved it
This place is a neighborhood gem. Service is good, ambiance is nice and the food is always excellent. Nice selection of wines at a reasonable price.
We had a reservation @ 6 PM. When we got there we sat right away. It was very quiet and calm which was perfect because we were able to sit down and talk without having to yell. The food was excellent. The only downfall I would say was that they were extremely slow but when we got our food we can say it was all worth the wait. Would definitely be going back soon.
Had a great time here! It was our first time trying this spot. Definitely try the pear ravioli!
Great food and the service is always outstanding.
Small quiet exccellent wine list great service and food a gem inside a strip mall.
Mauricio, Estanislao, and the rest of the staff are always a pleasure to interact with. They are very attentive and accomodating with each patron. We enjoy our experience every time.
Consistent great service and food
Relaxed atmosphere and casual. Neighborhood gem in Pinecrest.
As usual every plate was exquisite, both the meat and the fish. Desserts were extraordinary!!!
We love Cafe Portofino. Always a pleasure. Food was excellent as well as well as the service. The owner always greats us and is always concerned about our experience. One of our go to restaurants!!
