Portofino's restaurant, located at 897 Post Road in Warwick, Rhode Island, has been an institution in Rhode Island for the last 25 years.

Elizabeth's Portofino is a place you can come casually dressed and be seated in the cafe, or you can be seated in the elegant dining room which is filled with flowers and candlelit tables. Both share the aroma of the kitchen which is serving hearty ethnic Italian dishes and light fare as well. You can't pass up the roasted garlic served with warm bread and extra virgin olive oil brought to every table. Also, in the warmer weather, come check out the outdoor patio overlooking the cranberry pond. You can order from the regular menu or the bistro menu in all three dining rooms. Come see the old meet the new. Elizabeth of Portofino's is here to stay.

I've been coming to Elizabeth's of Portofino since I was a kid, literally for 30+ years. In that time, it's surely had some highs and lows just as you'd expect any family-owned restaurant to have over so many years of business. But suffice to say, Portofino is now for sure at the height of its current life cycle.

The ingredients were fresh, the meal preparation and presentation were superb, everything we ate was just as delicious as expected (if not more), service was top-notch, and one can hardly imagine a better selection of wine and custom cocktails. All this for a cost well below their nearest competition's much higher prices.

Portofino was the perfect place to have a an intimate birthday with family, and I can see celebrating anniversaries and other special occasions there as well. The complimentary birthday shots of limoncello were a nice extra touch.

The only slightly less than outstanding thing I can recall were the desserts. The cheesecake was not authentically "New York Style" as it claimed, and I remember thinking Key Lime Pie was a little out of place on such a thoroughly Italian menu. It might have been delicious but I opted for a real Italian classic — the tiramisu — which I've got to say was fantastic.

Maybe they didn't knock the ball completely out of the park, but they still scored a home run with me.

Excellent seafood risotto and caprese salad; undistinguished (but not bad) Caesar salad; lemon martini too sweet, cheese cake very good, coffee ditto. Excellent service (thanks to Michelle). Complimentary pink champagne for our anniversary a pleasing gesture (though terrible champagne, I'm afraid). Plan to return.

Husband and I still have dates on Saturday night. We like to go out to dinner and Elizabeth's Portofino is just wonderful. Since we've been going the meals are always great. I'm stuck on the stuffed fillet of sole. I love that dish. Italian food there is also good, husband had the Bolognese and he has left overs! They have a good wine list to choose from also. Clams casino is a great app. we enjoy. Friendly service from the moment you walk in the door. This is a wonderful spot to go. Valet parking. This restaurant has been around a long time and that speaks volumes.

We had a 9:15 reservation Saturday night . It was confirmed by Elizabeth of Portofinos Showed up at 9:06 to be told the kitchen closed at 9pm . Asked how they could accept a reservation for 9:15 if the shut down at 9. No reason was just told sorry. Uprofessional is an understatement.

Arrived for our reservation to discover that there had been a fire and that "power would be restored in an hour or two".

As we drove into the parking lot we had misgivings about our decision to eat at Elizabeth's. The strip mall is very run down and unattractive.

The blase attitude of the staff confirmed our initial impression. We asked for a recommendation nearby and were told to drive up and down the Post Road or go downtown.
