    Everything was great! The lobster pasta is almost a meal in itself. Took 1/2 of it home. And the Branzino with eghplant purée was also excellent-cleaned the plate. For dessert I had the Pana cota and was amazed-not too sweet . Can’t wait to return.

    This is a top tier restaurant. Too bad it's too loud - even for early diners

    Overall a nice experience. The service was okay, but definitely not great. The food on the other hand is fantastic. That bread is next level delicious.

    Never had anything as remarkable as the crudo capesante, worth a trip to Portale all by itself. Each ingredient in the raw fish appetizer was distinct -- and the blend of flavors was outstanding. Highest marks, too, for the ippoglosso -- truffle-encrusted halibut with a foamy sauce and delectable 'shrooms. Service was attentive but not overbearing. This place is a must for serious foodies.
