Nice risotto with chorizo, and zabaione for dessert. Great service
Like always great experience especially during these trying times.
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!
Dinner was SUPERB as always!!
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. *
Go just about every Friday they are closed now from 23Dec to Jan 2
Great atmosphere. Dinner was delicious.
Great neighborhood gem. This is my 2nd time. The customer service is great
They made a squid ink pasta which was fantastic!! Not on the menu so ask for it !!

The most consistent restaurant in the area. Food and service never disappoint!
Best short rib ever . Brought guests they loved it
Delicious dinner from soup to dessert!
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!
