    During my visit I had mixed experiences. While the host at the door was attentive and welcoming, the rest of my dining experience fell short of expectations. The service was inconsistent, with significant delays in attending to OUR table. Furthermore, my order was not what I expected based on the menu. And, while our server was not rude, his demeanor came across as impatient. Overall, I was disappointed with my visit and I'm unlikely to return.

    This small hole in a wall establishment is a great place to start my open table reviews. Although not my first time at this restaurant, my overall dining was a delightful experience from start to finish as usual. The lighting at the restaurant is a little off but the delicious food and impeccable service made for a memorable experience. My experience at this restaurant was nothing short of exceptional as the food is made to order and super fresh! April 4th, 2024

    I used to go to Anna Capri, but it kept getting slower and more expensive. So I tried Caffe Portofino about 8 years ago, and I love it! Great food, great service, great prices. I've never looked back - this is my neighborhood Italian go-to place. So much better than Anna Capri in all regards. Just try it, you'll love it. Everyone does. Make reservation, especially for weekends.

    Valentine’s day was our first visit and it certainly won’t be our last. This place was phenomenal!! The food was delicious and the service was Excellent!! It’s hidden in a shopping plaza that I frequent often but never had interest in going bc it really never appealed to me bc of where it was located. Don’t be fooled, this place is a must!!

    Our fish was smelly, old and hard. No one liked it. A very disappointing experience. We all would not return. Our waiter was totally obnoxious and had a smart comeback answer to whatever we said. The veal marsala was very fair and the sweet potato mash was disgusting. The vegetables were 3 string beans. It is expensive for what you get. We all were so disappointed we wasted a night out at this restaurant.
