The cuisine at Portofino is inspired by the many culinary regions of Italy. The menu and wine list constantly change with the seasons.
We very much enjoyed our visit to Portofino's. The food, service and atmosphere were excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant!
First time here waitress was awesome the Wild bore dish was delicious.
Love the menu. Something for everyone. Good food. Service lovely.
The trout was terrible. See all sent it back
Over all pretty good but I had asked for the grilled octopus to be made w only sauce (which an Italian restaurant obviously has on hand) and the waitress asked the chef and he said no.
Outstanding authentic Italian cuisine, great service and reasonable prices.
Excellent service and food-great way to end and start the year!
Early New Year’s Eve dinner
We had a wonderful experience at Portofino’s. We had a group of 9. Our two youngest asked for crayons and were promptly given a whole box plus extra blank paper to be creative. They also gave complementary champagne to the couple celebrating an anniversary. The food was fantastic as well....we had 6 vegetarians as well and everyone loved the food. Overall a wonderful experience and I will return the next one I am in town.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta!
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Buckhead! The food is delicious!! We did a birthday celebration and a mini gender reveal for a friend recently and the staff went above and beyond to make it special!
Portofino is always great. Never disappointed here. I love the atmosphere, the food, the wine,... Definitely a favorite!!
Christmas Eve dinner!!
We went for Christmas Eve dinner. Our server Channing was excellent. The food was good and had a wide variety for our group.
Portofino has been and continues to be one of our "go to" favorites in Buckhead.
Great food. Not stuffy or pretentious. Our waiter, Alvin was fantastic. May have been my all time favorite waiter anywhere. We even had a one year old with us, and he had a ball. The staff was all very accommodating to him. Could not have been any nicer.
One of my absolute favorites! Always a delicious meal!
The squash soup and the trout were quite good. The room was so noisy that it was hard to talk to the people at our table. Because of the noise I would consider another restaurant.
Excellent restaurant. Worth the price. The eggplant appetizer was so good we ordered another. My pork ragu was wonderfully seasoned. Not a lot of salt. We were not rushed, we had a good amount of time between courses. Cocktails, wine list & menu are changed with the seasons. Had a beautiful glass of amarone.
Will definitely come back.
We were celebrating my birthday and I had the Cacio e Pepe (and added chicken). It was so garlicky I had to send it back. Garlic and Italian food generally go together, but I’ve NEVER found it in Cacio e Pepe and certainly not to the extent it was in there. My sister and her boyfriend tried it and were horrified. I suffered all night from heart burn.
Unfortunately, everyone else at the table did not care for their food either - we ordered everything from Lamb Shank (soaked in butter), to pasta (weird under-cooked ingredients in the meat sauce; carrots) to filet (cold and under cooked).
The only positive was that our waitress was lovely, very friendly, and attentive. The wine was also great, but it’s hard to mess that up.
Overall, extremely disappointed in the food and will not be returning.
We arrived early for a dinner with friends, so we chatted with the bartender during the wait. When he found out that we were attending an Atlanta History Center event, he regaled us with interesting nuggests of Atlanta history. He also recommended an Italian red wine that was wonderful. When our friends arrived, we were escorted to a table in the back room, where we enjoyed a lovely meal. I really enjoyed the salmon; my spouse enjoyed his bolognese. It was a lovely evening.
Friend received certification
The recommended items were fabulous. Our server catered to our party of 3. The noise level was very low. It was a most enjoyable evening - our server made it so
Wonderful experience. Delicious food, well prepared and perfectly seasoned. Very friendly. Great patio in season. Love this place.
Excellent service and first rate food
Stopped into Portofino after closing on our first home! We were greeted by name by the hostess and whisked directly to a quiet, romantic table perfect for our occasion. Service was prompt, professional, and personable. Our server knew the menu and the wine list quite well and made some amazing recommendations that really wowed us! Both the Chef and Sous Chef each stopped by the table to welcome us in and bring us a selection from the menu which they described in detail. Overall it was an amazing experience and a memorable meal. Can’t wait to go back (for more brussels sprouts!) and enjoy all Portofino has to offer. Way to knock it out of the park Chef! Thanks for having us.
Quick service with great food.
Felt like Portofino was over rated. If I order a mid/r steak don’t put season salt on it and don’t ever cut it I half to show me the temperature. Wait staff was kind but unfriendly if customers haven’t been there before guide them to a meal they might enjoy get to know them. Dinning is not just about who your chef is if the customers don’t enjoy the over all experience they probably won’t come back even if the food is tasteful.
Great food! Service was excellent! Will be back!
Solid pasta options
Came for a bday celebration and everyone enjoyed it
Great place for Good friends and Great Food. Your Friends from out of town would be impressed.
Great dining experience!
Our first time eating here. Excellent food and service! We will be back next time we come to Atlanta!
The atmosphere was energetic, but not overwhelmingly loud where you couldn't carry a conversation naturally. The food, service, and wine was excellent and would dine there again without hesitation.
Great restuaurant! Would recommend to friends. The food was great the server was knowledgeable. Very tasty menu with lots of choices.
Extremely delicious food. Is that fifty characters?
We hadn’t been here in awhile and had forgotten how much we love the food, the vibe, the extensive and reasonably priced wine list. Our server made my son’s birthday really special.
Noise level perfect but not sure how rating scale works?
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.
