Dinner for my wife’s birthday with a close family friend. My wife, as always, had the hamburger. I had the penne a la vodka with sausage, and our friend had the ravioli. We were all pleased.

Everyone had a yummy meal. The calamari was perfectly crispy but not over fried. I had the veal and it was pounded perfectly thin. Others had pasta that was so filling and flavorful. Gelato - salted caramel was the perfect end.

This w as my second meal at portico, with just my wife and I and it was very good. We were promptly seated for our reservation, the food was excellent and the service was spot on. I'm a little bothered by the noise level as my hearing is going the way of my fathers and in crowds it gets tough, but conversation was easy.

We had a lovely Valentine's Day dinner at Portico. Our waiter was attentive, the food was excellent - lobster w/homemade fettucine, shrimp appetizer and lemoncello cake for dessert. The ambiance was warm and homey - we even visited with the people next to us and compared what we'd each gotten. Definitely will try again.

Great food and ambiance. Was a little noisy, but can’t wait to dine on the patio this spring.

The food at Portico continues to be consistently outstanding. In winter the facilities are a bit crowded as it is extremely popular and the outdoor garden/patio is not available. Reservations are a must. Service is also outstanding provided by employees who clearly like working there and who are pleasant as well as efficient. I highly recommend Portico if you want an outstanding dining experience and don't want to pay Richmond's high meal taxes.

Enjoyed my second visit to Portico; my husband enjoyed host first. We will go back. Gnocchi dish was more than I needed, but glad to have leftovers. My husband had the pork special with berry/cherry demi glaze, and loved it. No leftovers for him!

Our favorite restaurant when we visit Richmond. I had a rock fish special with a lemon sauce that every one at my table thought was the best.

Overall: Very good food and very good service during the meal. It would have been a really nice dining experience if we hadn't been asked to surrender our table about 15-20 minutes after finishing our main meal and clearing our tabs. We were told there were people at the bar waiting for a table, so we did leave even though we would have been heading out within 5 minutes or so anyway. I was embarrassed to feel we had overstayed.

I would recommend first time diners enjoy Portico in the spring/summer as their patio seating really sets them apart. The winter ambiance isn’t as spectacular but is cozy and quaint. I like that it is off the beaten path a bit. Food is not out of this world but I enjoyed the lamb risotto which was recommended by our server.

The restaurant was a bit loud and crowded, but I assume it was due to the holiday season. The food is always excellent and the cocktail drinks were so unique and delicious.

The restaurant was decorated for the holiday and was just beautiful. The meals we ordered were cooked just right and nice portions. Our waiter could have been a little more friendly. He seemed like he really didn’t want to be there. I would like to say the young gal with the blonde hair ran her butt off bringing food in from the kitchen. She was definitely the hardest worker this night!

Great atmosphere and very accommodating for our group of 10 that the day before grew to 12 with no problem. Seated immediately and greeted and served with great care. Everyone loved their drinks and the entrees were excellent. They brought a candle out on the birthday girl's cake (tiramisu). A good time with parking no issue - this is a plus anymore in the west end, especially over the Holidays. We'll be back to enjoy the patio in the warmer weather!

We have been to Portico many times. We have never been disappointed. The patio with the fireplace is an excellent area to wait for your table, or just enjoy a few drinks. The food is amazing!
