"We enjoyed the calamari appetizer and two outstanding entrees - lobster pasta (one of their specialties) and the scallops. Each of these dishes were excellent! We dine out often and this was one of the best dinners we've had in recent years."

"Everything about this place was great, from the moment we checked in with the hostess to the time we walked out everything was awesome. The waiter could not have been better, he was on tope of everything and the food he recommended was spot on. Our drinks were never empty, including the water glasses and there was always someone around if we needed help. And he was right, they do have the best meatballs in Vegas, no kidding. The stuffed chic parm was out of this world also. I cant say enough about how great this dining experience was, from the food to the wait staff to even the manager getting us our second round of drinks since the waiter was busy with another table. If you are in vegas and want a great meal with outstanding service that isn't as expensive as it should be, then please try this place."

"Ate here on recommendation of a relative. Decore' and service are excellent.
I had the beet salad which was artfully arranged and tasty. DH had soup, which he was disappointed in. Said it was no better then canned pasta fagioli
DH had lasagna which he said mine was better and I had veal cannaloni. I did enjoy the sauce, but not the entire dish. Possibly we ordered the wrong dishes, but we probably won't return

"Great experience all around! My husband and I enjoyed our meal at Portofino's thoroughly. The food was all very fresh and delicious. We got rockstar treatment from Chris Zadie who insisted we try the gnocchi and then proceeded to bring out an entire entree after we had already started on our own. Needless to say we left full but completely satisfied and will be going back when in Vegas again. Food, service, and ambience are top notch. We have already recommended to other friends and family. Thank you Chris for such great service. We really enjoyed ourselves!"

"My wife is a foodie...whatever, but the grilled octopus, she swears was the best ever. then she had salmon fish dinner, Lent season, and just loved every bit of it. Me, I'm carnivore to the bone, but Lasagna is my all time favorite Italian. Thing is, I eat nothing but Lasagna at Italian restaurants to find the perfect one...and I did. Bottega Louis in Los Angeles is great, light fluffy dough while the ricotta on top is to die for, but Portofino tops that by adding a a beautiful braised oxtail ragu to the mix that give the lasagna an elevated elegance. I was seriously contemplating ordering and second round.
But the best part was manager Christopher who was so in tune with his guest, he made us feel at home. He knew everything about the food, the wine, it made the dinner absolutely perfect."

"We had a great dinner here! We tried three appetizers, the meatballs are delicious! I got the scallops, they were good but I thought it was odd they didn't sear both sides. My husband had the pork shank and thought it was too salty. The waiter warned us but he still wanted to give it a try. The service was great."

"Great restaurant. Service and food were fantastic. Tried the house specialty...Burrata Angolotti. Light, yet filling. Superb!"

"Great Resturant but they ignored us for 1/2 hour sitting dozens of parties who arrived AFTER us after we checked in first. The lady at the front was less then friendly and seemed annoyed when I brought this to her attention. I guess she was more concerned about her makeup."

"Usually there is at least one aspect of a dining experience that might elicit a comment or suggestion, but a few nights ago, Portofino was perfect in all categories. Ambiance, service, presentation and food were all stellar. Well done, and thank you. Really, Heritage Steak House and Japonais, all at the Mirage, were also "top shelf" this trip."
