Food was delicious! Service was average. Our waters were never refilled and the service was slow for it not being very busy. Atmosphere is outdated for the price of the food.

We had a great dinner. We were sat a few minutes early and as soon as we sat down bread and oil were brought over. Our server was wonderful I forget her name. We ordered cocktails that were made very well and we asked to let us have our drinks before we ordered and were not rushed by the staff at all. There were 3 of us. We got 2 Veal Parmesan’s and one chicken saltimbucca. All were excellent.

Food was excellent but the service was terrible. There was a mix up regarding who was our server so we sat waiting at least 15 minutes before anyone came to take our drink order. Food was slow coming out as well.

Porticello is a nice family restaurant. Meals are good, average pricing, and the establishment is clean and comfortable. I only gave 4 ratings because nothing is ever perfect or the best. There is always room for improvement in every way,shape and form. I do recommend this restaurant.

Valentines Day and the place was packed. We had reservations for 7:15 pm. We were seated at 7:16, fantastic!
Dinner was great as usual. I had the special, braised short ribs over garlic mashed potatoes and baby spinach. It was the best I’ve ever had. Tender, boneless and so tasty. My better half had the sword fish with rice, he said it was delicious. Very nice evening. Great service even though they were busier than a one arm paper hanger. A beautiful long stem red rose was given to each lady as we left. Nice!

We went to Porticello's on a very difficult night to serve people, Valentines' Day. The restaurant was crowded and the wait staff did an excellent job making sure your table was ready and waiting for you. The food was served hot and you were never rushed on this special evening. I would definitely go back there again.

My husband and I went for dinner on Saturday night. This restaurant has once again become one of our favorites! Several years ago we would make reservations here on OpenTable fairly often but always had a very long wait (an hour or more) in spite of having a reservation! The dining room also used to be quite loud & it was difficult to have a conversation.For these reasons we stopped going there but decided to give it another try this past fall. We have been very pleased-the reservation times are extremely accurate and it seems they have installed an acoustical ceiling which significantly cuts down on the noise! The food has always been delicious and top-notch, as are the drinks! Portions are just right - generous (I usually take some home) but not huge. The wait staff and the servers are always very attentive, pleasant and professional! We love dining here!

Service was quick & professional. Reservation was a 5pm, seated promptly. Tables were clean and spaced out enough that you were not sitting on your neighbor's lap. Unfortunately, the food was disappointing for the price. Although the choices were varied for entrees the fact that there is no choice of starch ( only starch of the day) or vegetable is disappointing. The calamari appetizer was like warm when delivered to the table & was over cooked & rubbery. The sauce poured over the top resulted in soggy pieces. My entree of pan seared scallops with butternut squash risotto was delicious, but again luke warm. My dining companion ordered the filet mignon cooked rare. The steak was cooked as requested, unfortunately delivered barely luke warm. The filet was tough to cut & dried out , which is tough to do on a rare steak. Fortunately we had a gift card or I would have been further annoyed by the $89.00 tab, with no alcohol. First & last visit for me. I've paid less for a much better meal.

Took my wife there for her birthday. There were four in a party and they allowed us to talk and be with each other and did not hover over us. The waitress was very nice and accommodating.
Food was good and plentiful and they cooked the broccoli rabe just right. They removed all the bitterness and did a great job with a little bit of heat. My father had the sirloin and he was pleased with the way it came out. Wife and Mother had the salmon two different ways and they were very happy with their meals.

I have been here several times before but on Thursday January 3rd 2019 everything was just mediocre. The food was warm ask for my lamb to be well done and it was Medium rare and it took forever to get our food. The caesar salads seemed like they were there for a few days. I was very disappointed in the restaurant. Pollyann was out sick it just seemed like the standard that's usually there was not that night. It was a birthday celebration for my mom and dad and they were very disappointed also. I really hope that when and if we come back things will be much better. I absolutely love eating here but if this was the first time I would not go back.

The service was not good. The food seemed over priced, I had the bolognese and it wasnt really all that special for 19 bucks. My girlfriends steak came out rare and she asked for well done. Took them 15 minutes to get her a new one as my dinner continued to get cold waiting. Mostly the service wasnt great. Host wasnt friendly, waitress was obviously not happy to be there as well as poorly trained. Some older gentleman who was wearing a sweater and obviously a "manager" didnt do anything except talk with the host. For the price... POOR!

We arrived at the restaurant right @ 5:15 pm per our reservation. We walked up to the hostess stand and were greeted promptly. She asked if we wanted a table for 2. We said yes and our waitress brought us to our table. We asked her if it made a difference that we made an OpenTable reservation or not, because no one asked?? She apologized and said she would inform the hostess. But it wasn't very busy so she probably didn't think to ask.
The bread, appetizer and entrees were all great. Drinks were as well.

I took my daughter to dinner for her birthday. The wait staff were pleasant. However, the wait for the food was extremely long! I had to send my food one one of my guest’s food back. My food was cold & her food was burned. I told them that it was my daughters birthday. Usually the dessert for a birthday person is complementary. Not so there. They said, “ ok pick out a dessert & we will put a candle on it. That was a turn off! There were 7 in total and we all badges calmly said we wouldn’t return

This is a decrease in my rating since my last review. I particularly love the chicken saltimbocca at this restaurant and order it each time I visit. The sauce in particular is absolutely delicious. However, this time the sauce was not the same. (Possibly a different cook this night?) It was too heavy on something, maybe the vinegar or some other ingredient that ruined my anticipation of the same meal. My wife had chicken Parmesan, which she said was delicious.

We have not been to Porticello’s in almost 2 years because of several poor reservation experiences. Even with a reservation, we waited almost 2 hours for table. However we decided to give it another chance because the food is always been very good. We had a very pleasant experience. The restaurant was not crowded which was probably due to the fact that it was two days after Thanksgiving, but we were happy to be seated immediately at our reservation time. Our server was phenomenal! She was very friendly, professional and efficient. I had the pan seared scallops with butternut squash risotto and it was absolutely delicious! My husband had a special which was cajun mahi-mahi with coconut risotto which he equally enjoyed! We will definitely be going back!

I usually have a nice experience at Porticello but this visit was disappointing. We had a reservation but were taken to a table that was not cleared. Then waited an additional 10 mins. We eventually took ourselves back to the table when no one came back for us once done. It didn’t get better from there. We were pretty much ignored. It won’t stop me from going back..it was an off night. though it will be some time before I do.
