Superb, as always.
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.
We visit Caffe Portofino often and we are always pleased with our food and the excellent service! The lobster ravioli was amazing!
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!
GREAT FOOD! GREAT SERVICE! GREAT WINE!!
Item menus are a bit over price but the food is very good
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.
We’ve been dining here for the last four years and they keep their quality
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.
Excellent service and food was delicious. One of the best Italian restaurant in Miami
Great local Italian
We dine frequently at Cafe Portofino, always outstanding service and food.
Service and food was great. Main dishes took a little longer than usual but it was worth the wait.
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.
Cafe Portofino is always our place to go when going with friends and want to have a nice chat. The food is delicious and the staff so nice!
We dined outside and it was lovely
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.
Great food and great service. Highly recommend it!
Best tuna and pappardelle seafood pasta ever! Exceptional service.
Excellent!! You all around amazing food
Amazing food and service. Highly recommend the short rib with risotto!!
Great quality food. Versatile menu that offers different items for all tastes.
food is hit or miss the veal parmigiana was tasteless , my wife octopus paradelle horrible, the lasagna average ,the fettuccini alfredo good. the desserts great
This place is amazing! The food is incredibly good
The food is exquisite and di not use that term lightly! My server Brady is a true professional and adds depth to the dining experience. Excellent dining event for any occasion!
The staff is always at their best to make sure our dining experience is excellent every time!!! Thank you Caffe Portofino for another lovely evening….
Always a pleasure to come to Cafe Portofino. The food, service and ambiance never disappoints

Great night & Great place party of 8 with 2 birthdays celebration, love the food the ambiance & service, none of us had been there before and we all fell in love with it, we definitely will be back. We all Thank you & highly recommend this little gem 👍
Fantastic food and service. Small quaint restaurant with great wine list.
I love this place the attention to detail is super extra.
They are amazing from the host to the waiters.. will come here any time
The service was excellent. The food was sub par. The chicken was like hard rubber and tasteless.
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
As always the food and service was over the Top!!
The food was delicious. I had the fruit de mare and my husband had the pear tortellini. The waiters who were very friendly sang happy anniversary to us and our dessert was on the house. It was a very enjoyable experience.
Outstanding hidden jewel in Pinecrest/Palmetto Bay area. Always a wonderful meal, great staff and our go to restaurant. The daily specials are always difficult to choose beteween since they are all delicious
Food excellent! Noisy customers yesterday behind our table
