Once again, a great meal at Portofino. The kitchen produces the best and most original dishes and the service is superb. There are few Buckhead restaurants left with such wonderful food and great service.

Mike and the crew at Porto Fino rarely disappoint. Consistently great food, good service, and interesting specials and selections. The wine list is very nice, and diverse as well. Romantic style restaurant, but appropriate for all sorts of gatherings. After so many years, this is still a gem in Buckhead

The only thing that was a problem was the mosquitoes outside. We did ask for bug spray and that seemed to help....but you might consider getting some sort of mosquito service. We ALWAYS have a great experience there and enjoy the food and place!
Thank you!

Love this restaurant esp w the patio dining on a beautiful ATL night. We like to order more apps and share an entree, get to taste more that way. Like the regional selections that change.

Outstanding customer service! We dined late on a Thursday, and were met with smiles, warmth and gracious service. Our server, Heidi, had an amazing attitude and was accommodating to all of our questions and requests. We never felt rushed, and enjoyed a romantic, relaxing evening on the patio.

Portofino is a go to for us when seeking a somewhat quieter restaurant with excellent ambiance, food and service. This visit met all expectations - service is SO much better than so many of the newer hot spots nearby in Buckhead.

We have been here quite a few times before. This was the first and only time my food was ehh, particularly for the price. Had the bolognese and it was about as good as my wife's stroganoff but significantly more expensive. Not particularly hot either. My wife was quite pleased, but unfortunately, she did not write the review, She had the black pasta and said it was quite good. Wine was nice.
Our server was Amber and she was incredible and made the trip worthwhile.
