About

Portofino is located on a quiet side street in the heart of Buckhead and has been a neighborhood favorite for 18 years. The converted house features vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, and bright, energetic artwork. The beautiful stone and brick patio offers the most enjoyable outdoor seating in town and is available on a first-come first-serve basis.

The cuisine at Portofino is inspired by the many culinary regions of Italy. The menu and wine list constantly change with the seasons.

The scallops were excellent, but don’t order this if you’re really hungry! It only comes with 3!! But the new lamb dish was delicious.

Wonderful first experience at Portofino. Chris was not only knowledgeable about the wine and menu, he gave us a taste of Italy from his own experience. He checked with the chef to answer additional questions we had about preparation of specific dishes.

My wife and I were in Atlanta for a wedding, and decided to go here for my birthday. This place had reasonable reviews online, and although the website menu seemed somewhat limited, we thought we’d give it a try. We were seated at a small table by the wine rack in a smaller part of the main restaurant. I got a salad and the pork chop with champagne apples and kale. My wife got soup with the pumpkin ravioli. Her meal was decent, although the ravioli was not moist. My dinner was almost not edible. The pork chop was over cooked, dry, and almost burnt on top. The kale was tough, and the apples were so small that it was almost impossible to slice them. They were also undercooked. The wine we had was great, and while friendly, the server was absent for long periods of time. When I did complain about my meal, they were kind enough to remove it from the bill. They also gave us a free dessert, and the manager came by to apologize, so I do give them service points for that. My wife and I are experienced fine diners, and this place was just a major disappointment. I won’t mention the last Italian restaurant we ate at in Atlanta, but it is in the same area, and there is no comparison. That was the best Italian meal I’ve had outside Italy, and I’m sorry that Portofino just didn’t measure up.

This is one of the best restaurants in Atlanta. Whoever created the stuffed olive appetizer should get a Nobel Peace Prize. These would definitely foster peace and harmony between all nations.
