    Porticello is a comfortable, pleasant restaurant with a staff that is always welcoming and friendly. The Italian-style food is always tasty and captures the character of the various regions of Italy. The tables are placed to avoid crowding, and there is a new patio for outdoor dining. This neighborhood restaurant offers a discerning menu at reasonable prices - a great find.

    We had a 6 pm reservation and arrived on time to find the place packed. Apparently a local college was hosting a “family weekend.” We were seated immediately and the server took our drink order. Drinks arrived pretty quickly, then we ordered. Bread for our table did not arrive until 15 mins later. We were served our entrees at 7:20. My husband loved his Tortellini soup and Tortellini with peas and Parmesan cream sauce. (Has had both before and is always pleased.) I ordered the Short Rib special. The combination of roasted jalapeños, asparagus, crispy shallots, and spicy bbq over polenta tasted phenomenal but the meat was so tough I had to saw through it with a steak knife. Not “fork tender” at all. While we were not happy with, but totally understood, the really long wait, do not understand the meat issue if it had been prepared for 24 hours as described! I brought most of it home to enjoy after it was cooked further. Was very disappointed as it could have been an outstanding special because it tasted so good.

    Service (Lexi and Lily) were excellent. Entrees took more than 1 hour and drinks took 30 mins. Kitchen Staff was yelling at each other. It would have been nice to have the mgr comp dessert after the almost three hour ordeal.

    There was a lot of waitress and bus boy on unfortunately they did not work as a team. We ordered our drink and dinner got our salad before our drinks. Then had to ask for bread three times before it came (right before dinner) out. My husband order was wrong but the bus boy was great to fix it immediately. Our waitress seemed more concerned with the couple beside us then us. We were half way through dinner before she came over to see how it was. We were within arm space of the other couple. When we sat down we got water first and never got it refilled, gave up asking. It just seemed so disorganized, very disappointed. This is the second time we have tried and the same outcome. We love when we have Polyanne as things run like a smooth machine but the last two times she was not there and it made a huge difference. With so much staff on things should of been more organized and functional. So disappointed as I have been coming here for years but with prices going up and service been relly bad not sure what we will do in the future.

    I'll be honest. We went there for buck -a-shuck oysters. They were delicious. We have been there before and we haven't been disappointed. Our waitress was pleasant and attentive without being annoying. We sat at a hightop in the bar and overall it is a very good place and reasonable pricing

    We made an early last minute res for Sat night. Upon being seated we were informed there would be a 10% “temporary” surcharge on menu items to cover higher costs so the owner didn’t have to “raise prices.” What we didn’t realize is that it applied to EVERYTHING we ordered so that our evening’s surcharge was $8.70! We both ordered what are usually fairly inexpensive entrees - Eggplant Parm and a Pasta dish (Tortellini) - which were priced at $19 and $24 BEFORE the surcharge - and which included NO soup or salad - so I think the increase might be better applied to items that actually warrant it! As far as the food goes, it was good, not great. The Pear Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette (which I have had previously and has been delicious) was very oily with little flavor - as if the Kitchen forgot to blend the dressing. The Eggplant Parm tasted good but the tomato sauce was very watery. For $19 plus 10% consisted of two slices of eggplant over pasta. Soup and Salad were $17 additional plus the additional surcharge.. 2 glasses of Zinfandel $18 PLUS surcharge. Overall, a bit much! Suggest perhaps warning diners on the website beforehand or realizing that your prices are ala carte so already high and not applying such a hefty surcharge to EVERYTHING.

    We usually have Polyann and she was on vacation. We had Katy who was nice. Service was ok and the food was just ok. It seems when Polyanne is there, things run so much better. We did enjoy our night out and look forward to giving Katy another try. In reference to the meal, it seem like it took a long time for it to come out and when it did it was less amount than usual. Not sure the why but will try it again.

    Best birthday dinner ever! Food was excellent, drink specials were fabulous and the appetizer specials were great. The service was superb and we all had a great time. We lingered quite awhile with dessert and after dinner drinks and we didn’t feel any pressure to leave. Highly recommend!

    In all fairness, we need to give it another shot as it was Mothers Day. The waitress was amiable, but the wait for the food and food quality was another story- it took 40 minutes to get apps and then another 45 for the entrees. Again it was Mothers Day so I understand the wait. What I didn't understand is how the Baked stuffed lobster my wife ordered was like a rubber ball- The meat was way overcooked- The waitress handled it like a pro, and it was removed from the bill. Overall, I think this place has the potential to be great. We just had a one-off experience.

    We arrived just in time for our late afternoon reservation on Mother's Day. I found an open parking spot right in front. Our table was ready, and our party of four were seated immediately. The wait staff were extremely attentive and checked in frequently. The food was delicious. We started with perfect fried mozzarella. Each of our entrees were different. For example, sea bass, chicken, and pizza. The chef prepared a special sauce just for one of our party. Two of us had desert: strawberry cheesecake, and crem brulé, and coffee. I had not been to Porticello's in quite a long while but we all agreed we would be back. A great dinner out.
