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!!
Especial ! Very nice place and food was excellent!!! 5stars
Usually we enjoy this place
Very nice experience, food was great and so was the service.
Never disappointed nor are the guests I bring to this awesome restaurant! Every guest I bring says the same thing, "I'm going to tell my friends about this place" Phil our waiter was excellent, attentive but not over bearing...looking forward to next visit, rate this 10 1/2..
After reading the reviews and loving Italian, I was very excited to go. The Greeting and sitting us was quick, however after that it went downhill. My chicken piccata sauce was good but the chicken was very dry and over cooked. The special was grouper with risotto which we were charged $2.00 xtra and the portion was very small. Not to mention it was not fully cooked. I am a HUGE wine drinker and their menu is amazing for a small quaint place with excellent prices. However, I was not drinking but a glass which the house wines are not listed by name. When asking if a DOCG, they didn’t know nor offered to show the bottle. Just gave me a small taste. It seems all other tables with bottles seemed to get more attention. We waited for a while for the bill and had to ask the waiter. The owner or manager dropped it off without one word or commenting if everything was ok. The soup we had ordered to go, was charged but not brought so we had to wait again. It’s a shame the first experience was so bad as the place is cute. It is so close to home it will get one more chance. Hoping it was an off night for a Zagat rated restaurant.
Amazing food! Never disappoints, worth the drive
We are always happy with our meals and the service at Cafe Portofino. Don’t let the location stop you from enjoying one of the best restaurants in the area. We went early and were surprised that there were so many family’s enjoying a meal together. Later it’s a date experience. I’ll be back.
Ese restaurante es excelente muy creativo y muy bien atendido tanto por los dueños como por los camareros el chef es algo fuera de este mundo son todos hispanos un orgullo de lo que podemos hacer
One of my favorite places. Never disappoints! Mauricio is just wonderful & always recommends the most amazing wines to pair with our dinner. Have been going there for years, hadn’t been in a while, but will definitely make it a point of going more often.
It was good. The food was ok; the dry risotto and undercooked not too flavored ribs....
I loved the wine ( Catena)....
Great restaurant. Great service. Have been going there for 20 yrs
Awesome place! Great food. Great service. Owner is fabulous!
I highly recommend this restaurant, been there on several occasions always a great & personable experience, food is outstanding, not cheap but you get what you pay for. This restaurant will not disappoint.
We were there on a Sunday evening so the Mall was quiet and we sat outside and it was lovely. The food was delicious and the service was very good , waiters were well versed with the menu and the specials. Will go back again .
Cafe Portofino never disappoints. I love hearing the waiters describe the specials for the night. The service is always top notch and the food delicious. I enjoyed a carrot and ginger soup and ahi tuna over tostones.
It was great! Like usual. Never lets us down. Loved the Buffalo special.
Great food. Too noisy.
Consistently delicious food, excellent service and great wine selection.
