Caffe Portofino is the kind of restaurant you go to knowing you will have a guaranteed great meal every time. It is imaginative Italian cuisine with very fresh ingredients.
The service is always friendly and impeccable. Although the restaurant is in a shopping center once you walk in the door you completey forget that. Very charming ambiance. Every night they have several very interesting specials. I highly recommend it.

Food was excellent, as was everything else: with, for me, one exception. Noise level is not simply "energetic." The place on a Friday night was just plain loud. I don't want dinner in a tomb, but in this case, conversation was difficult. There must be a way to cut back on sound level: ceiling tile, maybe?

Probably the best Italian in the Pinecrest area. Everything cooked to order and the pasta is, without a doubt, the best you could ask for.

Excellent food and service! My husband and I have dined at Portofino several times and have been very impressed each time. We highly recommend the Braised Rib Ravioli and the Lamb Chops! For dessert - Guava Pie! Everything was excellent!

The (2) Chicken Marsalas were excellent and the Veal Chop off the specials board was cooked medium rare to perfection. Best chop I ever ate. Medium rare on the inside with an exterior crispness. Perfect.

With tax, tip and a bottle of wine the bill came to $175. A good value too.
