    In my opinion, it is continually the best meal in Indianapolis. The food is exceptional. The atmosphere is quiet and romantic. The staff is always helpful and pleasant. Our new favorite restaurant, hands down.

    Dining at Portofino was an unforgettable experience. The rack of lamb was nothing short of excellent, cooked to perfection with a crust that was both flavorful and delightfully crispy. The rest of the menu did not disappoint either; each dish was a testament to the chef’s attention to detail and commitment to quality. However, what truly set this dining experience apart was the service. The staff were not only attentive but also genuinely passionate about ensuring every aspect of the meal was enjoyable and entertaining. Their recommendations were spot-on, and their timing impeccable, never missing a beat. It was, by far, one of the most enjoyable dining experiences I’ve had, with the service elevating it to a level that was truly memorable. Portofino has mastered the art of hospitality, making it a must-visit for anyone seeking a great dining experience.

    The service was top notch. Our waitress was great. We started with the charcuterie board which was great. We then split the Caesar salad which was also very good. However, our main courses were pretty salty. I'm assuming it was an off night as we have friends that went there and RAVED about it. I'd try it again as the ambiance and everything else was great. However, we were disappointed with the food.

    This was one of the best meals we’ve had all year. The service is impecable. Friendly and inviting. Makes you feel right at home. The food is spectacular. You can taste the freshness and how carefully selected every menu item has been. They don’t do a lot, but everything they do, they do it very very right.
