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.
Excellent food, service and experience. We will definitely be back!!
The food is always excellent and the wine selection is first class. A great restaurant in Palmetto Bay!
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.
The service is exceptional and the food is outstanding. Super fresh seafood and excellent pasta dishes. Can’t wait to go back.
Mauricio and Brady are great host for a wonderful dining experience. Highly recommended for the most discerning palate
Always a pleasure
Good Italian. We had the veal francese, mushroom soup and fettechini with clam sauce. All were great.
My wife and I love this neighborhood restaurant. Food is always great and consistent. Highly recommend.
Wait staff was very tentative and professional
GREAT TO BE BACK
The wine list is fantastic, the wait staff extremely attentive with great recommendations, and the food exceptional. A local favorite for you, even if we have to eat outside. Thanx!
The food was delicious as usual and the service was superb!
Great outdoor dining experience during these difficult times. Tables are nicely separated, fans are going, and the same delicious food & wonderful service as always. Great to see people out supporting local business!
It was my first time at Caffe Portofino and really the food was very very delicious and besides that the service is really good..the servers are gentle and friendly .They also had a vegan option for me.
Great food . Great service
Outside dining you can enjoy
Great food and service, outside seating, social distancing. Everything was great!
Great service, superb taste !!!
Excellent all-around. Great food, decent wines, fabulous service. Outdoor area nice for staying socially distanced.
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!
Service very attentive. Food was mostly okay. For the price it should have been much better.
Really enjoy this restaurant....you never feel rushed. The food is delicious. It is small and very quaint. Have been several times, always good. Wait staff attentive. Don’t plan on being in a hurry....I mean that in a good way. As was mentioned you never feel rushed.
Ambiance is very much neighborhood restaurant feel. Best short ribs in town. Amazing risotto an desserts are spectacular specially the strawberries in sauvignon cream!
Delicious food, amazing service, great wines
Always a great place to have dinner!!
This was our third time at Cafe Portofino, and once again, we were not disappointed. Overall, the food was excellent and the service was great as well. I can definitely recommend this restaurant.
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.
Always a great meal!
Best spot in Pinecrest. Mauricio is such a great host/owner. Making us feel like home. Food as always delicious. Service is like nothing I have experienced before in Miami. Same employees, same quality, personalized service. They even remembered us.
Excellent dinner choices, good service and interesting wine list.
Excellent food & service. Highly recommend for any occasion.
Delicious! Excellent service
Went with my two young daughters to celebrate my promotion. The place was very cozy, the food was excellent and the service superb. They even accommodated my daughters last minute request since she is vegan. We will definitely be back.
Great service and good. Kudos to mauricio and the team
Nice place in a strip type mall , in a area that does not have much in good food this Italian place stands out as a good neighborhood eatery that can save you time traveling to other areas
Nice meal. Great service. The food was yummy. Just not 5 stars yummy. The appetizer portions are on the small side. Otherwise great dinner.
Bday very nice
Caffe Portofino has been a hidden jewel in Palmetto Bay for many years. The service is excellent, the food is wonderful and the quality is consistent. I highly recommend Caffe Portofino.
Went with my family for my birthday. Food was excellent, wait staff were wonderful. Water was refilled constantly. All in all, a very positive experience.
Very very attentive service , food fit for foodies, great place all round
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.
