The cuisine at Portofino is inspired by the many culinary regions of Italy. The menu and wine list constantly change with the seasons.
Service and food was fantastic, great pick for a special occasion.
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.
This was a great experience!! The service was fast, service was great, food was tasty but a little pricey. The drinks were on point and the atmosphere was superb.
We were seated and greeted immediately. Due to Valentine only one menu with certain choices.
Ordered Squash soup - outstanding
Meal pumpkin ravioli- loved
Porch chop- delicious
Dessert - banana upside cake -awesome
Portofino is very accommodating with a friendly and knowledgeable staff. The ambiance is perfect and the menu delicious. We highly recommend this Italian restaurant for all occasions and will definitely be back soon.
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.
Great food and service
Classy setting and great service. Food was amazing.
It was a very nice experience, quiet, great service, nice wine and a very nice meal.
Incredible dinner out. Best we’ve had in Atlanta in years.
Great food and service as always.
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.
Great service, incredible food!! We will be back. Please add the Veal Ragu to the regular menu
Great spot and great food in the center of Buckhead. Mike and his team always do a great job!
Dinner and wine selection were fabulous. Our server Kelly was superb! Looking forward to dining there again!
Portofino is one of my most favorite restaurants in Atlanta! Quiet atmosphere, intimate setting, delicious food and attentive service. You can't beat it!
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.
My girlfriend and I dined here for New Years and were blown away by the level of service. Best Italian food in Atlanta by far!
My husband and I go to dinner every year for my birthday to a new restaurant (for us). Portofino was a great first experience all the way around. I didn’t have to mention my birthday as I have in the past at other restaurants. It was acknowledged by our server, which to me is a big plus for the restaurant. The food and cocktails were excellent as well as our server. I apologize I do not remember her name but she was very attentive without being obnoxious and really took care of us.
Date night New Year’s Eve with our best friends. Food and wine were wonderful, as always. We had an excellent server, as well.
Jermaine, our server, was excellent, too!
Amazing food, great service, beautifully decorated!
Food was good, not great. Had eggplant appetizer, bolognese and tiramisu. Tiramisu was pretty good except it had some type of a cinnamon-like spice that I didn’t like.
It was great!
Hidden gem in heart of Buckhead. Restaurant is very cozy and excited to return when it gets warmer to enjoy patio! Service was excellent, and they helped create a great memory for my girlfriend and I on our 1 year anniversary.
Great food and atmosphere.
We have been to this wonderful restaurant several and it never disappoint us.
We love it.
The food, cocktails and service were excellent. I will definitely go back again!
Great experience as always.
Food was aweome! Loved the ambiance and our server was amazing!!
My bros and I had a lovely bro date. We ate good and bro’d out even better. Victoria was a great server.
Great wine list, with wonderful food and attentive service, these are the reasons I have been coming here since they opened 20 years ago.
Always a great experience. Skip the pretentious “fine dining” joints in Buckhead and go to Portofino. Great service and honest, amazing meals every day of the week.
Past experiences were better. We ordered truffle pasta special and it barely tasted like truffle (could be that I'm used to fake truffle oil taste, but i thought they were bland). Food was good, just not great. Could have been an off night because previous meals here have been awesome. They do do a really nice dessert for birthday celebrations and I really appreciated that!
Always excellent food and drink. Our server, Alvin was terrific!
Best birthday ever!! Excellent in everyway!! Victoria, ourwaitress, WAS A JOY AND DELIGHT!! 😍
