Our friends were quite impressed with our restaurant selection. The wine was excellent, our Caesar salads were chilled and crisp, and everyone enjoyed their dinner. We had great service with after dinner suggestions of cappuccino and dessert that were delicious. Thank you!!

Very busy night with College Graduations and many large parties. That affected the service . We have been coming here for many years and the food was quite good. The food runner twice brought the wrong food to our table and started to serve it and when he did bring the right order didn't know how to identify one of the dishes ordered so it sat in front of the wrong person getting cold.

Our party of 6 was celebrating an Anniversary . I spoke directly to the owner when I made the open table reservation. I told him about the anniversary and he said to put it down on the reservation info. on open table which I did. When we arrived I told the girl we checked in with about it again.
Meal ended and there was no mention or acknowledgement of the anniversary. Our friends had to pull the waitress over and ask her about it. She said she knew nothing about. It was of course obvious to us what was going on and we told her to just forget about it, but they brought out a bite sized piece of tiramisu with a candle.

So the food was good, but got cold. The service was very slow and the runner had no help from the waitress with what to do. And the very small matter of acknowledgement of our anniversary spoiled the evening for us.

With a lot of very fine Italian restaurants in the area, I think we'll take a break from Porticello and give our business to someone else.

The baked stuffed lobster was fabulous, everyone raved about their selections. My sister in law said it was the BEST chicken piccata she had ever eaten. The Bolognese is always delicious. The Deserts were great, Frutti di Bosco, Creme brûlée’s, & Tiramisu and Expresso martinis was an amazing end to a great meal. Of course, Susan was an attentive server and Mario is always on hand, friendly & generous.

The food was excellent. My mother and I both had baked stuffed lobster and it was excellent - a large lobster with stuffing that included shrimp. My son loved his filet mignon and my husband loved his chicken meal as well. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. My husband dropped his knife and it was swiftly picked up and replaced with a new one. The atmosphere was also very nice although I did find one thing a bit strange that I hope the owners will understand and rectify. When we arrived on time for our reservation, we were told for big holidays and Open Table reservations, they utilized their bar area for some dinner patrons. The one thing I will say is that the actual Porticello website directs you to go to Open Table to reserve your table yet what we were told implied that the Open Table reservations were "lesser than" direct reservations. We went along with the bar seating to be accommodating but they may not want to say it's because we reserved through Open Table if that's what your restaurant tells you to do on your website. But, back to the good! My mother and I were given roses at the end of our meal for Mother's Day which was such a nice touch and really made us feel good! Overall, great experience and the staff truly go out of their way to make it a wonderful, upscale experience for their guests!

I am not sure why but the server was very quiet and we continued to need to ask what they had said. They also did not know the soup of the day and made something up. We also did not receive all meals at the same time. We ended up receiving a free desert because of this. Overall the food, drink, and everything else was very good.

My husband & I dined at Porticello’s once again last night. We were seated within 5 minutes of our arrival and, as usual, our meals & cocktails were delicious! We had the pleasure of being served by Valerie. She is so sweet! She was very attentive, professional, friendly & courteous. Thank you to the chef, bartender & Valerie for a very enjoyable evening! Porticello’s consistent high quality, delicious food, great cocktails & wonderful service has made it one of our most favorite places, especially since they have quieted the acoustics & ironed out the reservation process! We look forward to our next visit!

Has a good time ..sat at bar. Great wine selction and food was good - a bit pricey.
Was surprised at an upcharge for spinach in place of vegetable and pasta- that was a surprise.
Service was different between bar tenders - both not bad but one had a better pour and was more attentive than the other.

We waited 90 minutes to get our food, I understand holidays can be busy. It would have been nice when 80 minutes into my wait by I ordered a salad the waitress could have said your food will be here are you sure you want a salad now? She was quite disappointed my husband ordered iced tea rather than alcohol and made a comment about another table having iced tea. She forgot to mention it was unsweetened and didn't offer sugar. When we were done and she noticed he didn't drink it she offered a Coke but we were leaving. We had alot of rain and very humid and you could smell the carpet needs a good steam clean.. but the food, although expensive and I can't eat filet mignon without mashed potatoes.. Food was excellent

I do not want to interfere with someones job, please excuse the lack of clarity in areas.
Noise level was quiet probably because on a Saturday night the dining room was half empty. I was not pleased with the service. I ordered a soft drink and server responded with "Really, that's it?". I do not drink alcohol so yes that's it. (The server told another table that she/he needs to have a drink in their hand at all times, when they ordered soft drinks). Calamari was worst I have ever had. Extremely chewy, almost difficult to chew. My party did not eat it. A person cleared the table without asking why it was not eaten but if we would like to take it home... Meals were mediocre at best. Bolognese used thick fettuccine like pasta that was all stuck together. It was one big clump of pasta. Disappointing. The orecchiette rabe was not bad .. spiced with red pepper flakes which I think could have been done in a better way. I will not be returning. Please understand each person has a different opinion and my expectations for food are very high. Thank you.

Service was excellent food and drink orders were taken in a timely manor. Food came right out and was hot and delicious. Portion size was good. My daughter couldn't finish hers and took it home and had it the next was still delicious. My Veal marsala was the best i have ever eaten. We will be back.

The bathrooms were spotless that is a big selling point for me.

For the price you pay, the food is just good. The waitstaff was friendly but eager to clean the table throughout the whole experience. There wasn't a wait or anything so it wasn't that they were trying to move the table. It got to the point where we just told them we would move the plate to the end of the table when we were ready. We also confirmed that it wasn't closing time either. It just became awkward. Everyone was friendly and the food was good from the appetizer to the dessert. Nothing special and certainly not bad, but you do not get the "that was delicious" feeling or the "wow" that you are paying the prices for. Spice it up Porticello.

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.

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!

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.
