Excellent food on the Valentines menu. The restaurant is definitely family oriented rather than intimate but the outstanding food made up for it and more. The food tasted as good as any place I’ve been to in Orlando.

Pasta bar is perfect for kids and family. Filet and sea bass were exquisite. Rib eye was a poor cut of meat but cooked appropriately. Wait staff were attentive and timely. Overall a great place for family dining.

Service was slow but pleasant. Decent options if you choose the pasta buffet versus a la carte. Even though we had a reservation, table was not set up.

Some of our party ordered from
the menu and some had the pasta buffet-some of the food was good but most was just ok. Our server was very attentive and the wine was very nice.

There was a large variety of foods, something for everyone. The ham and chilled seafood was excellent.
My selections were limited due to an allergy to garlic. The youngest member of my group enjoyed the children's menu.

Wonderful Christmas Day for us and our six year old granddaughter at the Christmas Buffet. Lovely friendly staff, a wide range of delicious food and good entertainment for our granddaughter. Only slight disappointment was lack of vegetables with roasts. Coming from the U.K. we are used to roast potatoes and veg with our roasts but plenty of other good food to make up for it. We had our table for as long as we wanted and had a thoroughly enjoyable day.

The ambiance was ok, but overpowering smell of food when walking in. The food was good, but I would not call it exceptional. Good if you are staying at Portofino Bay hotel.

We made a reservation but still had to wait 30 minutes while there were tons of open tables. The menu has changed and is far more limited than what’s online. Had to beg for a server. Food quality was mixed.

I suppose I would recommend since breakfast is very limited at Universal (unlike Disney World). There’s nothing outstanding about the food, and it’s slightly pricey but if you want breakfast its really your only option at the Portofino resort. The staff was very friendly I’ll give them that.

Food was great. Portions were huge, and we would have ordered less if we knew, since we are both cheap and were flying out the next day. Service was good and friendly, but not fantastic. Convenience to the hotel was superb, outdoor seating wonderful, ambience nice but noisy at times. Wines were good.

We enjoyed the salad bar and the bread that came to the table. But the pasta bar was just meh. Like warmed up leftovers. We should have ordered off the menu.

The pasta bar, soup and salad bar option is worth the 26 dollars. We did not partake in anything other than that option, so I can’t comment on the menu. We thought the two cooks preparing the pasta did a really good job. The place was empty until around 8:30 ish, but I suppose that’s probably normal for a resort/theme park hotel. I think that if this place did something to liven up the dining room it might be worth it.

While on vacation at the Porto Fino Hotel at Universal we decided to try this amazing restaurant for dinner . We were so delighted with our meals and the careful attention given to one family member with a good allergy we returned for brunch. Again, delighted as the selection was amazing, the service attentive without being intrusive and the food was wonderful . Have already recommended it to friends .
