This restaurant is permanently closed. "World-class executive chef Michael LaPlaca gives an unforgettable modern twist to classic Italian foods.

From the hand-made pasta to the finest imported ingredients to the dozens of fine wines, you'll get a true taste of Italy right on the Strip. Reflecting the quaint, beautiful and wealthy Italian village it's named after, Portofino is tucked away from all the casino noise, offering large leather booths, beautiful marble, vintage wood fixtures and Tuscan-style chandeliers. The white linen cloths and rustic Italian decor brings you close to the old world while dim lighting and classical music create an intimate, romantic atmosphere. From the Burrata Agnolotti handmade with simple ingredients and prepared to order to the Crab Cake Arancini fusing the traditional Arancini rice ball and Maryland-style crab cake, it's no wonder Portofino has been highly-praised by Las Vegas Weekly, Las Vegas Magazine, Trip Advisor and Open Table."

We had Christmas Eve dinner here, and my wife, 14 year-old daughter, and I loved the laid-back atmosphere at this comfortable Italian restaurant. The cocktail, meals, desserts, and service that we received were outstanding. We felt relaxed and completely satisfied with our dining experience when we left the restaurant. It was a wonderful night before Christmas at this restaurant, and I would recommend it to anyone looking to have a great dinner out. My family and I look forward to going back soon!

Food was superb. Everything was well cooked and delicious. I did the 4 course tasting menu, and I was very happy with every dish.

Service was good food nit that great.The focaccia bread that was brought to the table was dried out and hard. When it was time to pay our bill ,we asked it to be charged to our room like we always do.. Our service said that was not possible and that we had to pay with a credit card.So we did.But thinking that it was strange we spoke to restaurant manager and asked why that was and he advised us that we could charge it to our room and didn't know why we were told that.He wanted to reverse the charges but we couldn't be bothered because we would have to wait for 5 days for the charges to drop off the credit card. We lost out on points on our mlife due to the server.He should have inquired when we were adamant with him about having it chrged to our room.We will not be back and food was not worth the price .It was expensive.

We were seated promptly. We ordered a glass of wine, very nice. The waiter told us about the specials. We decided upon one of the specials, lobster ravioli. It came in a HEAVY cream sauce, the waitress indicated it was light. You could not taste the lobster at all. The pasta was made fresh that day. It was good, not outstanding! I couldn’t taste the difference between Trader Joe’s and this!

I will not be returning.

Service was pretty bad. Thought they comped us a bottle of wine to make up for the poor showing, but ended up charging us after they remembered highlighting their incompetence. Do yourself a favor and don’t go here.

Limited menu choices but Diver Scallops and Lobster Pasta were outstanding. Great wine selection. Attentive service from the wait-staff. A+ restaurant

My wife and I were looking for a great place to unwind, be us and just enjoy the night...Portofino has all that and then some! The Staff was amazing! We decided to have a cocktail before dinner and the bartender Raul was top notch! His recommendations we're spot on...and as far as the food...5 star worthy! Portofino is now a staple for me in Las Vegas!

service and food were outstanding. We had to make it to a show at the Mirage, and the restaurant staff made it happen without feeling rushed.
