Pan seared scallops served Over braised spinach and finished with a balsamic gastrique
served over spaghetti
Sauteed wild mushrooms, sage and white wine topped with prosciutto and mozzarella cheese and served over pappardelle pasta
Saw the restaurant but never tried ITV
Tonight we did and we loved it !!
Outdoor patio was great
But the food was outstanding
The special Tuscan Pasta was delicious!! I hope they have it again or make it part of their menu.
We started with the stuffed Caesar Salad, it came out on very warm plates, it was lacking cheese but the dressing was decent thank god the lettuce was ice cold !, we also order the stuffed mushrooms, we where served 5 very small mushroom caps stuffing was ok,
wife ordered chicken picata over pappardelle wife likes it, i tried the sauce very good flavor.
i ordered the veal saltimbocca over pappardelle pasta , sauce was outstanding but the veal was tough and was a very small portion...
Had a lovely work night dinner with my husband. Food is well prepared, fairly priced and generously portioned. A couple of takeaway boxes went home. The menu is diverse and the food is a step above the neighborhood Italian American restaurant. The location is a bit out of the way for us, but we make it a special occasion every few months. There are options for indoor or outdoor dining and the tables are nicely spaced, so you can enjoy a conversation with your partner.
Thought the price was high for the portion size. Service was slow but I assume that was do to the lack of help.
My prime rib was very good. I was, however, disappointed in the vegetable portion. I had asked if I could have double veggies instead of potato (I'm pre-diabetic and need to watch carbs) and was told yes. The serving size was definitely NOT double. The amount of broccoli in the mix wasn't even really one serving. Considering the price of the meal, it was a stingy serving.
Food here is outstanding!
Waitress was good but service was slow because she had to cover indoor and outdoor dining
I've been here many times-I've never been disappointed---no reason to go into Boston or Providence--spectacular food-extremely friendly staff
We thought the entrees (chicken parm and scallops with butternut squash risotto) were excellent but were disappointed nothing included even a small salad. Meals were tasty but very rich and heavy so a few lighter, “fruitier”, summer specials would have been more to my wife’s liking. The drink prices - e.g., $9 for a half filled glass of house Zin - we thought were pretty high. The service was excellent. Only major complaint was that the restaurant eventually got extremely cold and we couldn’t wait to leave. Saw other diners in the parking lot pulling sweaters and jackets out of their cars and going back in!
Loved this restaurant. We sat at the bar. Food was good, drinks were great; great service and atmosphere!

Our server was bright eyed and cheerful and her assistants were attentive.
We are sure to be back...
Awesome food awesome service
Excellent experience, excellent service. The food as always was delicious.
The food was outstanding! Service and ambiance were also great. I ordered a veal chop which was soooooo delicious, I took half home to enjoy for another meal. Mario is wonderful, makes sure everything is running well. I’m excited for the outdoor patio, love eating outdoors.
Waitress was awesome anniversary dinner was great wife left happy we will be back
Sat in no the bar area at a high top on a wed. night. The bartender is the one that has to wait on the tables. She is too busy making drinks for the bar and the other waitresses. Service is terrible. Loud loud people talking like they were the only ones there.
Food and service was excellent!! Restaurant was very very busy and out waitress was on top of her game. She did an excellent job highly recommend this place.
AWESOME EXPERIENCE, WILL GO AGAIN. IT WAS A GREAT MOTHER'S DAY FOR ME AND MY SISTER...
We felt very safe in the restaurant. The waitress was attentive but also kept her distance. all servers had masks on. Tables were spread nicely apart with enough distance between them that you felt safe. The food was outstanding. Highly recommend the scallops risotto. Outstanding! Ended the night with a cappuccino and a dessert. First time out with friends in a year-and-a-half. Boy have we missed this. Will definitely go back soon!!!
Veal Milanese was PERFECT, so glad this is on the menu.
Long time favorite. Very quiet these days. Food is consistently fine.
Jamie was our waitress, she was wonderful, food was delicious! Atmosphere was relaxing, a nice dinner date.
If you go here the staff is really nice and work hard, the food is decent and I would not recommend the steaks. Chicken parm is good
All was excellent.
The clams in the linguine were not washed and was inedible because of the sand. I’ve never had to send back a dish and was shocked that they never offered anything comp or discount or a at least an apology from the manager. Eating dinner while the wait staff cleared the table is not exactly the dining experience I was expecting. I’ve eaten there many times in the past and enjoyed it very much. It’s clear it’s a new chef and management. Very disappointed, and will never take my family there again.
would be five star but they were out of campari for my negroni :)
Very helpful staff even though they were busy.
Food is great! Veal and filet Gorgonzola are my favorite!! They always have good specials as well.
The food was very good I just wish it was a little warmer. It was not as hot as it should have been and the restaurant was not crowded. I’m not sure if it sat under a warming light too long but again, it was tasty just lukewarm. Our waitress was very good.
Excellent food, owner Mario always visible interacting with guest.
Our first time to Porticello since the pandemic. Just as good as I remember it. Food and service were fantastic. We ate in bar area that is always a little noisy but lively. Great martini!
Food and wine was great! Our server was awesome! We will come back again
As always, food and service were excellent!!
I was surprised to see customers enter without masks! Also owner/manager with his mask hanging off his chin. We’re still in a pandemic and should take necessary precautions.
The food was just average. The service needs improvement. The was too green.
Birthday dinner with friends.
We picked your restaurant for our first date and had an amazing time. The food was excellent, staff was attentive, and our waitress was excellent. Thank you for making our date memorable!
Yikes... I read the reviews about this place and in spite of it decided to give them a try. When we arrived, we were greeted by a musty smell. The hostess' back was to us for about a minute as she worked on the computer. When she turned around, my wife and I were surprised this will endowed young lady was falling out of her tube top. Not a problem if I was with the fellas, but not so much when on a date with my wife. There were about three other tables occupied and nobody seemed happy or excited to be there, and nobody had food. It was a eerily quiet with no back ground music. We were seated at a table that was dirty, sticky, and hadn't been properly cleaned. Both of our water glasses were dirty, and my wife's glass still had lipstick residue on it. We would have asked asked for some new glasses, but nobody said so much as a hi to us for the next 8-10 minutes. All the things I read in the Yelp reviews were accurate and true, and we didnt even get water (for our dirty cups) I didn't want to put myself through having to deal with bad service or a bad meal, which the yellow reviews indicated was inevitable, so we left for Corfinio, which was an amazing dining experience start to finish. I Doubt I'll be back
I had a fish fra diablo and it was very good, my girlfriend had veal parm which was also good. It was crowded but service was still good. Not a place for a romantic atmosphere, a bit noisy. I had made reservations and they seated us right away, no waiting. I would definitely go there again
