    Love every pasta dishes and the rice balls in my 2 times there. However clams and mussels are slightly overcooked and marinara sauce is a bit too salty. Hope they will include the squid tentacles in their fried calamari. Like the extra crunchiness added by them. Lots of restaurants include them and no food waste too 😉 Excellent service and the host makes you feel very welcomed!

    Had an 8:45 PM reservation; didn’t get seated until almost 10:00 PM. In fact, a group who had a reservation way after ours who just walked in were taken before us because they didn’t care to look at the reservation list. When we complained, the host said we’ll get you seated it’s busy in here so he can’t keep up! Pretty lousy excuse. Took over another hour to get to our appetizers, so appetizers and main course came out at the same time. Food was amazing as always;however, service needs some big time work.

    The food was great, as usual, but the service was SLOW! We watched as other diners came in after us and got served way before. We waited almost an hour for the food to arrive. When we asked the waitress about it, she said there was a party in the next room. No apology, no free drink, or any acknowledgment that they screwed up. My guess is our order got lost in the shuffle. Won't be back anytime soon!

    Restaurant had a decent ambience, we waited at the checkin desk for 10 minutes before we were seated. Menu had a good variety of choices. Chicken parm came out with the cheese very burned and drowned in mediocre, overly sweet sauce. They charge a credit card fee of almost 4% which I didn't notice mention of. There was also a dog in the dining room for the end of our meal. I wasnt aware this was allowed except for service dogs, which this wasnt. This was more than likely a one and done for us.

    Absolutely loved everything about the restaurant. From the moment we were greeted at the door to the wonderful service at the table. All of our food items that we ordered were spectacular. We enjoyed the eggplant Parm the veal Parm the shrimp Francaise , as well as the beautiful salads and fried calamari. The desserts as well were delicious. Very inviting environment. And we will definitely be returning. We had a wonderful time!

    My boyfriend and I decided to go to Portofino’s tonight and it was absolutely delicious! The restaurant is a BYOB and a tiny spot with modern cozy decor. Our server was great and super friendly, along with the other staff. We got the Bang Bang spring for an app (spicy and flavorful), angel hair pasta, and the salmon special. All the food was delicious and the night was great, definitely recommend and will be coming back.

    I would like to start off by saying I have eaten here several times over the last 2 years BUT 1) Service I asked the waiter to bring hot pepper first time for APP and then for main coarse (2 times). He never delivered 2) waiter ran into street to waive down Mr Softy ice cream trunk. Never witnessed that before 3) Risotto which I have ordered twice in the past was watery had no taste and the scallops were not cooked and at best room temp. 3)

    What perfect Tuesday night dinner! I had a reservation and we were given a nice table next to a window. The service was great, because we three diners wanted to catch up and needed privacy-our servers gave us the privacy wee needed. The menu options were great, there was something for each of us. We were all too full to get dessert, and we were not rushed out, but allowed to enjoy our decaf coffees and decaf espresso.

    Celebrating a birthday dinner for a family member. There was a big party in the next room so our server didn't attend much to our party of 4. That was a bit disappointing being that 3 members of the table have worked or work in the industry. I understand being busy, but, check back, offer to refill waters , check your stations prior to service (our table had red wine stains on the table cloth when we were seated) the side of olive oil was given in a vinegar Cruet , with vinegar still in it. It's the small things that you can't and shouldn't overlook. We tipped accordingly, had we gotten better service we would've tipped far better.

    This was one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had with regard to the quality of the food. The calamari is out of this world. I’d make the 1+ hour drive again just for that.
