    We hadn’t eaten here in quite a while. Lovely dinner. Excellent grouper and Osso buco. Wonderful team work by Brady and his fellow servers. There was a large party inside that was very noisy so we decided to sit outside, which the team easily and quickly accommodated. Although the seating was by the parking lot, the music was pleasant and the location was not a deterrent. We will be back again soon, as this is a neighborhood gem.

    We always have an amazing experience when we go to Caffe Portofino. The staff is attentive, friendly, and on point with service. This is our family get together go to restaurant to celebrate birthdays, date nights, or just I don’t want to cook go to. The food is also tasty along with their wine selection.

    Always a favorite when we visit Miami. It does get noisy, when multiple groups of 5 or 6 come in. But, the food is worth the inconvenience.

    I have been to this restaurant on several occasions in the past and never had any issues, but this last visit was very disappointing. The service, except for the person replenishing the water glasses, was not good, in fact lousy. Two other tables that arrived after us got their food long before we did and left long before we could. The food was just okay. My daughter's risotto was very runny, the calamari was very chewy and the chicken breast was very small for the price. Let's just say that the best thing about the meal was our wine and the dessert. There are many other excellent Italian restaurants in Miami to risk a visit Cafe Portofino again. Sorry to say, but definitely not worth the trip.

    The Service was Excellent. We Celebrating my Friend's Birthday and they were Very accommodating and provided a special dessert. We both got the Chicken Francese. It was tough and the sauce was thick and very lemony. Unlike ones I've had in the past. The rest of the Experience was fine.

    We came to celebrate our anniversary & it was just perfect! Nice ambiance and the service was absolutely outstanding! We had the Burrata and the carpaccio to start and it was 10/10! For dinner, I had the pear ravioli which was divine & my husband had one of the specials of the day which was a chicken lasagna with cilantro and it was delicious. Of course we had to finish with dessert! We had to try the panacotta and had cortaditos for coffee. Everything was good! The staff was so nice, they even sang us the happy birthday song but instead said “happy anniversary” and gave us the dessert on the house! Best dinner ever ❤️

    This is an upscale restaurant offering very good - excellent food and service with a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Service was well-paced and attentive without being intrusive. They offer a full menu of entrees before 6:30 in two tiers of reduced price packages which include wine. Be aware that Open Table Reservations may show unavailability at certain times when in fact there is availability for a reservation. Call the restaurant a day ahead to check on a reservation if Open Table does not show availability.
