Portico Restaurant - Richmond
Closed for Dine-in. Online Ordering at porticorichmond.com
Italian inspired Cuisine in a charming and beautiful country setting with outdoor dining. Stone terrace with large fireplace nestled between aromatic herb and flower gardens.
We had an enjoyable dinner with our friend. Our waiter was very attentive.
The decor and scenery was very nice with the daffodils and spring trees blooming.
Since this is our go-to place for dinner, I'd say our satisfaction should be obvious. Food and service is always outstanding.
This is our favorite place. In all the times I have been there I have yet to order from the menu, the specials always get my vote. The food is just outstanding and the outdoor patio is spectacular.
We always have a great experience at Portico, one of our Favorites in the Richmond area!
Faithful Servants Care
We celebrated our mother’s birthday lunch on a beautiful spring day. The food was good. Service was quick and uneventful.
Enjoyed our meal thoroughly. Always enjoy coming here but prefer the outdoor seating the best, just much easier to have a conversation.
Excellent food, little noisy, good service. Recommend
Service is a highlight and desserts are incredible! Expect pizza, pasta and seafood with a great appetizers large enough to share. Things flow with casual but well orchestrated timing, drinks are well crafted, wine list is well rounded and reasonable. You will see couples, families, girlfriends as friends. Expect to spend 1 1/2 hours, and leave feeling like you want to return. Make a reservation!
I've been to the restaurant before and I always think it can't get any better but then it does. It's one of my favorite spots for a reason!! Great menu, great staff, and great pricing!! And it's just a super cool cute little place!
The environment was cozy and romantic. The service was excellent. The food was the best in Richmond. Portico is one of our absolute favorites!
The ambience is lovely and the food is excellent. We have dinednthere at leaatba dozen times and it is one of our favories, especially for Italin.
My husband, son and I all got pasta dishes and none of them really had a lot of flavor. They were okay, just not delicious.
great location, sweet ambiance, 5 star Waiter, fast service, highly recommend!
The food and service were outstanding, although the prices seemed a bit high. Noise levels inside the restaurant were very loud. It was difficult hearing our own conversation. I recommend dining out on the patio when the weather permits.
The entire evening was amazing!! From the food to the service. It was a fantastic evening.
Good food, good service.
We had a birthday celebration and a big group. Everything was perfect -- food and service -- and the restaurant was so accommodating. Our waiter Jamie was helpful and did a great job!
My boyfriend and I were both so excited to try Portico for Valentine’s Day. Our waiter was wonderful and gave us as much time as we needed to order and answered all of our questions thoroughly. The food was DELICIOUS and the portions were great. Will definitely be back here on subsequent special occasions!
Delicious meal! Eggplant app was very nice, rock fish special was tasty and not to overpowering with capers. Hubs had the ravioli and was very happy.
I really enjoy Portico when the patio is open but it's also a nice place in the winter months. The noise level is rather high but we were able to keep up a conversation at a table for 4. The artichoke crab appetizer continues to be a favorite!
Had such a great time! Service was amazingly and just the perfect atmosphere I enjoy an evenings a girlfriend!
The valet parking attendant ... black female... was aggressive and rude. There was no attendant at stand when I pulled up I waited a few minutes nobody came so I went ahead and parked next thing I knew the attendant came up behind me while I was still sitting in my car getting my purse scared me then accuse me of almost running her over and demanded my keys I said I can give it to you in a second let me just pull myself together and she just stood there and kept demanding the key and I said if you'll give me a few minutes I'll give it to you when I walk up to the stand I took a few minutes to pull a few dollars out of my wallet so I could tip the attendant when I left she been knocked on my glass window again told me I didn't need to pay and I should just give her my keys. When i walked up to the stand she demanded that tell her my name and says I don't mean to harass you but I needed to get that key so she wouldn't wouldn't mix up the ticket. I was made to feel that i was inconveniencing her. I just found her to be aggressive especially when the parking sign did not say it was required and by her own words she was harassing me. That put a damper on my evening.
Several guests at my table had unpleasant encounters with the two attendants. When combined with the clip manner of our waitor ... it was disappointing given the dinner was my birthday celebration.
Always a great meal!!
I was disappointed with my recent experience. Has the ownership changed? My first clue was the 2/3 empty parking lot when we arrived for brunch. The same inside.
The server changed just after placing our order. Of the four guests 1 plate arrived cold. The 2nd server did not check back for 15 minutes...too late to correct the cold food. The price of the spoiled food was removed from the tab, but the server was unconcerned with the spoiled meal for my aunt.
It was an indifferent experience. Quite a contrast to many previous visits. No reason to return.
Great food service and atmosphere
Love going to Portico. Never disappointed there. I will caution that in the winter when the restaurant is full it can get a bit noisy. Never have that problem when it’s warm and the doors are open.
Food was outstanding in such a beautiful and quant setting. We will be back again and again!
Great food, actual service of drinks and food good. However, they were very much in a rush to get our order and get us out of the restaurant. Closing is 10pm and at 8:45 they said we had to order before kitchen closed. When we left, it was obvious two of us were waiting for Lyft, they locked door behind us and did not offer for us to wait inside. We will visit again as we like Portico and go pretty often. Chalk it up to one of those nights for the closers.
Had to wait 40 minutes for a table when we had a reservation.
New Year’s Eve
Not sure how to interpret the boxes for noise level. Portico is noisy to the extent that it is hard to hold a conversation. While I love Portico, it is best to go when you will be comfortable eating outside due to the noise level inside.
The food and service are outstanding. Wonderful neighborhood restaurant.
Great place for a gathering with friends and/or family. A favorite of ours.
We had to wait a little while but not too bad.
I would suggest you have a very short questionaire.
About 3 questions at most.
From the drive up to the ambiance, I always feel like I am in northern Italy, where I used to live. Great place for a romantic dinner, dinner with friends, or drinks at the bar or outside when weather permits. A Richmond gem.
Hidden gem! We love it. Casual and great food and service!
Always a favorite place to dine. Food is fantastic!
Staff seemed hurried. Low ceiling makes for high volumes - husband had to remove hearing aids
The food and service has been just mediocre the several times I’ve been in the last few months.
Always a pleasure! The menu is always full of wonderful selections, too!
