Our server, Cassie, was very good. The calamari was delicious. It took a while for the bread and garlic to be delivered.
The cocktails were prepared perfectly.
We ordered white sauce Pescatore with extra sauce. It was very dry. No extra sauce. Ordered grilled shrimp for a salad. It was served with COLD shrimp. By the time it was served properly my guest had almost finished his Pescatore!
Elizabeth refused to accept our $25 Groupon on a $100 meal even though it was promoted when we made our reservation. ELIZABETH! SHAME ON YOU! VERY VERY SAD! We have dined with you many times overs the years! SO DISAPPOINTED, not in your staff, but in YOU!

Elizabeth’s exceeded our expectations in every way! We went for our anniversary and ordered appetizers, salad, entrees and dessert. The bread and roasted garlic bulb was a delight. We enjoyed a glass of wine and a limoncello and cookie topped with whipped cream as an anniversary nightcap. We chose to sit lat a lovely table in the bar area, which was more sparsely populated, but just as elegant and actually a bit quieter than the more formal dining room. Attention paid to every detail - professional staff, authentic, delicate flavors!!!!

My husband and I hadn’t dined at Portofino’s in quite some time. I have heard some positive reviews from friends and thought we’d give it a try. Our overall experience was a positive one. I only have a couple of negative comments. The waitress was both very pleasant and efficient. Although our food choices were all very tasty, both my appetizer and entree were lukewarm (one of my absolute pet peeves). Also, my entree was Chicken Milanese. Two good size cutlets cooked nicely both moist and crunchy which is typically served with an Arugula salad on top of cutlets. The salad portion that was served was very small, certainly not enough to eat with both cutlets.
Having said that, I would definitely be willing to go back and give it another try.

Very pretty restaurant. Chicken Milanese was tender, good. Lobster ravioli in Alfredo sauce was not good (only order lobster ravioli at Pane E Vino!). Bread basket is not good; no excuse for spongy white bread in RI! Wine selections a bit ordinary/down market. Cocktails were great. Service friendly and efficient. So definitely go. Don’t be put off by the bread and don’t order lobster ravioli!

I had seen a dish from what was apparently an old menu that caught my attention. It is not currently on the menu but I mentioned it to our waitress who volunteered to talk to the chef. He immediately agreed to make it for me. That was customer service above and beyond from both the waitress and the chef. The dish was outstanding and plentiful. My wife had the lobster ravioli which she really enjoyed. I should also mention the fried calamari appetizer was light and cooked to perfection. All in all a very pleasant dining experience.

We're regular patrons of Elizabeth's. We prefer eating there in warm weather because of the outdoor patio dining area.
My husband ordered an appetizer of eggplant rollatini which is one of our favorites. The dish came out overdone, the eggplant tough and pretty much inedible. When we mentioned this to our server she said it was because it was put under the broiler (??) She immediately offered another plate but we declined because we weren't optimistic about another order.
He ordered veal rollatini with gnocchi which was very good; I ordered a chicken dish and I was very satisfied with it.
Overall, the over cooked eggplant set us off. It should never have been presented to a customer. Will we return? Not sure.

I ordered a chicken and eggplant dish which was tasty, but the eggplant was paper thin and over cooked. The homemade sauce was excellent as was the bread and salad. The best part was our server who was EXCELLENT !! He saved the meal and because of him ,I will be back !!

Elizabeth’s Portofino serves wonderfully tasty Italian seafood and meat dishes. We so enjoyed that extra touch of bringing a birthday slice of tiramisu to our birthday lady. Sweet surprise for us!

My daughter and I have not seen each other in over a year due to the pandemic. We needed to go out to a wonderful restaurant for a special evening. The food and service was excellent. We will make Elizabeth of Portofino’s our neighborhood place to enjoy a night out. I have been to Portofino’s many times and I am always pleased.
