The food was not good. Both the chicken piccata and the halibut special were dried out and tough. The halibut was overpriced for what was served.

Very lovely restaurant. Service was impeccable. Menu wasn't extending a variety of choices plus several enticing specials. Their risotto was top notch. Nice list of desserts too and Sabine was delicious!

Our server remembered our preferences from the two other times we've been there, including our son's allergies. We haven't been there since April! The food is amazing, and the service is even better. Our number 1 choice for Italian food in Miami.

This is one of my favorite restaurants unfortunately disappointing in this occasion. The Food was excellent however service and the noise level was disappointing. We had to call over the waiter for service several times not to mention the chaotic atmosphere in this small local restaurant. This restaurant has always had great service and truly welcoming not to mention a very relaxing local restaurant.
Please don’t change what has made this restaurant a local favorite.

We've been to Portofino several times and its been amazing every time. Mauricio, the owner, is always there making sure his customers are happy with their experience. Highly recommend for a date night, birthday or any special occasion, you wont be disappointed.

The service was very slow despite the restaurant being empty. There were 2 large tables only, which probably was the explanation. However, in case they were understaffed, they should have warned us. It took more than 40min to be served. The food was not impressive. It was taste less and heavy.
The whole experience was very disappointing. Twice in a row that we go there and are disappointed. Giving up on this restaurant.

This I is one of my favorites. Service is super attentive and meals served in a very timely fashion. Excellent food cooked to perfection. The pear ravioli are a must try and the veal dishes, both picara and Marsala style, were simply delicious. Coming back for their rack of lamb next.

Excellent service and ambience. The pear ravioli with the Aaretto reduction (which is on the regular menu) was a melt in your mouth decadent meal. And the special of lobster ravioli, shrimp, and a pesto cream with sun dried tomatoes is absolutely the best we have ever tried. We trave to Miami from Key West every few months. Will return whenever in the area
