Food was very good. The seafood dish that my husbands dish looked delicious, but he said it didn't have any flavor to it. Other than that we enjoyed our evening, the quality of the food and service and will go again.

Been here many times. Always wonderful. A huge plus for me because I have celiac disease and require gluten free meals. They serve the BEST warm crunchy gluten free rolls and any pasta can be done gluten free.

Consistency is Elizabeth's main talent. Service and atmosphere are top notch; food is on par with any top restaurant in RI.
Priced fairly for the quality presented.

Food was decent, but way overpriced! They must have changed hands or something, because it used to be much better all around, and they used to give you a complimentary cordial after dinner, but no more. Also, there was a charge on our bill that we didn't order, so check your bill before paying, if you go.

As usual excellent food at a reasonable price. What is there not to like. Dinner for two is bargain. Comes with a bottle of house wine,Salad, choice of an entree, salad , potato and vegetable or choice of pasta. Complimentary home made Limenchello completes the meal. Owner Elizabeth is always there and she is very personable and friendly.
This is our go to place any time we are flying out of providence or visiting in Providence

The service was the best part of the experience. Our waitress was attentive and prompt. Overall, the restaurant felt quiet and we were put in a room behind the bar. It worked out well as we had 8 people in our party. However, at 9:15, the place cleared out and they proceeded to breakdown the tables in the room. We hadn't finished our meal yet! Didn't leave me with warm and fuzzy feeling. Appetizers and drinks were delicious. Mix reviews on main dishes. My meal was "just ok".

Unassuming from the outside but so pretty and comfortable inside! Great service, tasty food and fair prices. They had $45 Dinner for 2 menu including bottle of wine but we didn’t take advantage of that. Chicken Francese with double veggie was so delicious but chopped salad was disappointing. Very plain and over cooked dry chicken.

As usual food was excellent. Service was prompt and remarkable. Dinner for two is a bargain with a bottle of house wine and salad with entree choices and complimentary after dinner home made Limoncello. Been there before and will continue to go there in the future. Would recommend to any one who is into the Italian food

Went to Elizabeth’s of Portofino tonight..was a little worried when we first walked in at 6pm....no one was there..we skipped restaurant week menu..my martini was terrible, the appetizer of white beans and sausage was not great BUT our entrees were good..8oz filet, substituted for garden salad and broccoli, delish and my steak was more flavorful then capital grill and husband’s seafood di mare he said was really good and cheesecake seemed frozen or not homemade at least

We tried Elizabeth's of Portofino's for restaurant week. The food was excellent (calamari, chicken parm, & cookie pie) and the atmosphere of the restaurant was warm and welcoming. We definitely recommend it and will be returning in the future.

The food was...one of the best italian food places, I've tried ever. First time ive ever had an Arancini ball was in Cape cod 10 years, and every time I go an italian restaurant, I look for it and try it but its never the same. And when I saw it on the menu at Elizabeth's, I was excited. One bite and I was in heaven. It took 10 years to find a place that makes it like the first time I remember it.. And the best part its close to home!! The rest of our dinner? I wanted to look my plate. Delicious. A must do!

This was our first time to this restaurant and it was a special occasion in our family. Every moment was special, even when I knocked over a full glass of ice water across the table. The waiter Brendan was attentive, friendly and helpful. He fixed the wet table issue quickly and quietly, and at the end when dessert came, he brought it with a simple candle for our birthday girl. The food was absolutely delicious and plentiful. We shared calamari and Caprese salad, which were both standard, but then had two chicken dishes, lasagne and baked scrod that were each cooked nicely and flavorful. The sangria - both red and white - was perfectly mixed. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

My partner and I are semi-regulars at Elizabeth's of Portofino and were greeted warmly (despite a chilling rain) by the no-charge valet, then inside by Elizabeth herself and Amy, the bartender and our server, like the returning old friends we've become. Having said that, we saw many diners in the full house having a good time and enjoying the whole experience. Amy served up a perfect martini and Aperol spritzer to start. As Jim and I had sampled most of the items on the menu, I chose one of the specials that day--sea scallops scampi over linguini--and Jim chose something on the menu that looked good, but unfamiliar... unfamiliar, we learned, because it was a new addition to the menu--a seafood casserole. After the bread and baked bulb of garlic and our shared appetizer and salad plus the main courses, we had no room for dessert, but were served complimentary glasses of strawberry champagne. A stunning culinary experience.
