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!

Wonderful neighborhood restaurant... located in a strip mall, next to Party City. Have been to many other Italian restaurants in the area, but this is by far the best. Excellent food and service... it can be a little pricey, but most worthwhile.

Service was really good but the pasta bolognese was very salty, even after they remade it.

The Chicken parm was good. The tostones were excellent.
