The cuisine at Portofino is inspired by the many culinary regions of Italy. The menu and wine list constantly change with the seasons.
Lovely lovely date night on the patio. Joe Kelly Liz and all were wonderful as always. Food was delish. So many great veggie options for the vegan in our duo. Vongole and mozzarella salad divine, of course!
We had a phenomenal meal at Portofino. Loved the special from Umbria. Excellent wine selection made by the house too. Highly recommend this little gem in Buckhead.
Great service and great food. Went out of our way to serve us a keto friendly meal and it was very good. I don't recall the server's name but she was exceptional. Love the outdoor patio.
EXCELLENT dinner!!! I had the striped bass and it was absolutely fabulous.
One of the best patios in Atlanta! I would highly recommend it
Always enjoy coming here. The food is fantastic, never had a bad meal here.
Best terrace in town, great food, excellent service! Favorite spot in Atlanta.
Consistently good Italian food with a wide variety of options, great service, and reasonable prices.
Delicious food and great service! Ended up going two nights in a row!
Celebrated our first anniversary here and had a GREAT meal! Was greeted with champagne, and the service was great. We would highly recommend!
Great food and service!
My wife and I invited two of our friends to join us at Portofino for a nice special dinner. We had been there before to celebrate anniversaries and birthdays and always walked away in awe at the quality of the food, the amazing flavors, the intimate and romantic ambiance, and the above and beyond service. This time we were unfortunately, left a bit disappointed. Our server did not appear interested in establishing rapport with us. He was seemingly just limiting himself to being transactional. Little details matter and it was surprising that when we asked about specials, he said, you can read all about it here in the specials menu. No top restaurant server should ever tell a customer to just read about the specials. And it is a missed opportunity for the server to impress clients on the marvelous new creations of the Chef. We still love Portofino and will return but needed to get this off my chest. I hope the management reads this review and discusses the feedback with the staff. Come on Portofino, you can rise higher and shine! You are my favorite authentic Italian restaurant in ATL!
Portofino’s is one of the best in Buckhead. Perfect setting and ambiance. I can’t stay away-try to make it in at least twice a month-never disappoints!
Another 10 for a reliable good meal. The reception, service and quality of food was superior. We love coming here over and over.
The service was fantastic - from the moment we exited our car until we got back in. The staff was most friendly and helpful and the food was great. We will go back when we return to Atlanta.
I come here all of the time!! I love this restaurant for special occasions / etc. I came here this evening with my girl friends and wasn’t very pleased with the service. My friends and I were asking questions about the menu and possible replacement options, to which we received snarky responses from the waiter. I hope we can chalk this up to a one time thing- because I usually do love Portofino for the food and the service.
Great specials, fabulous wine and awesome experience for our birthday daughter.
Terrific meal, service and atmosphere. My fish was perfectly seasoned and cooked. Salad was over dressed for my taste but still delicious. Beautiful setting and quiet enough to have a nice conversation.
It was a beautiful night and we sat on their porch. Great ambiance, food and service!
The cuisine was prepared very well. Every course was delicious. Service was very good. Wine selection excellent.
The flowering kale salad, cacio e pepe, and dark hazelnut chocolate torte were outstanding. Lovely place!
Wonderful service with delicious food. Great neighborhood restaurant!
We LOVE Portofino! Always excellent food and service. Very good wine (bottle) selection and prices. Noise level a little high, but isn't every place these days? Nice 'casual elegant' little place. Great for date, special occasion, meeting friends.
Thanks to Mike, I got the exact table I requested to celebrate wife’s retirement. Food was great and service as well. Really like this place.
The food, service and ambiance make us want to return to Protofino. Trout was perfectly cooked and served with a tasty and interesting spaghetti squash. Bolognese was flavorful as usual.
Made a reservation for an anniversary; even though we arrived late we were welcomed politely and were given a table near the window seat. The waiter was extremely friendly and knew a lot about all the food on the menu and was able to offer helpful recommendations. The food was all absolutely amazing, and despite the appetizer being a little smaller than we had expected (only 3 meatballs), everything was well worth the price and we left the restaurant very satisfied.
The dood and service were fantastic. We will be back. A very hidden gem
Wonderful experience- everything delicious but especially the Brussels sprouts.
I loved Portofino. Everything about it was great; the food, the service, the atmosphere, and the overall experience were superb! I recommend getting the NY strip and the tiramisu! Also you should definitely make a reservation before you go to guarantee yourself a table.
Dined here with friends. Food was ok, I ordered my steak medium rear, came back sliced and more medium to well done. Gnocchi tasted like thick dough. Perhaps it was just what I ordered but I found it very average.
First visit and we will be coming back. Food, service, and anbiance were all amazing.
Love Portofino!!!! Such a classic with delicious Italian food.
Portofino has time and time again been an excellent evening out. The setting works as both a date night spot and as a group of 10 with family and friends. The food is always top notch, service on point, and plenty of great wine choices. It does get a bit pricey, but not overly so.
Had not been to Portofino in years. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The food & service were excellent!
Great experience overall!
Alvin was absolutely amazing. Great service, great food, great atmosphere.
We really enjoyed our dinner at Portofino Saturday evening. Jason took great care of us and was extremely knowledgeable on the menu and wine selections. We will definitely go back.
1st time at this location. It had great reviews. We were so impressed. The reviews were correct. Service, food and ambience were delightful!!!
The dinner was perfect. Atmosphere is great, service was top notch, and the food was outstanding. We will definitely be back.
Portifino’s never disappoints. Fantastic food and wonderful service. Kelly and Max are the best-helpful professional and personable.
