I have frequented Portofino over the years since 1970 even though I have lived in Rockville for years. A great special place. Friendly staff, great food and service. It was the new "in" place to go back in the 70's and has withstood the test of time.
Service was very uneven. Food was excellent but I think we will avoid this place on New Years Eve in the future.
Food and service were outstanding. We were visiting from out of state and wanted something close to the hotel. This was walking distance and did not disappoint! They have a great wine selection. But the deserts are amazing. One of the best canolis I have ever eaten.
We flew in to visit our dad's grave in Arlington on th second anniversary of his passing, and paticipate in the Wreaths Across America event. Despite our party of 7 arriving 5 minutes before the restaurant closed, we were accommodated and served a fantastic meal. The staff was very attentive, considerate, and patient with us as we took our time ordering. Thank you for allowing us to dine with you at the last second, and helping you close the restaurant! We'll be back, for sure, but, hopefully, well before closing time, next time.
Great food and service as always.
Great food and personal experience.
Loved our meal!! Great bread and olive oil served. Loved our waiter. Would definitely recommend.
This is a unique and rare find for the Crystal City/Arlington area. This place will remind you of home and going out dinner with the family. Great food from a by gone era. Uber friendly service, from a wonderful staff from around the world. They so friendly. This place is such a gathering place, full tables, full of good food, good wines and beer and good conversation. Step out of DC and into the world of Portofino. You'll enjoy your trip.
It has been too long since my last visit. The food is wonderful under the leadership of Ricardo who has not missed a step since taking over for his parents. In fact, it is getting better!
Exactly what we were looking for! Very cozy and romantic! Great food and delicious desserts!
