Porticello Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

We had a very pleasant experience. We were seated as soon as we arrived, unlike past visits where we have waited over an hour after our reservation time. We had not been here in a year because of that. Decided to give it another try & we were very pleased! The pan seared scallops & pumpkin risotto was wonderful! We will definitely be back often this winter!

Restaurant was very busy the night we went . It was a Saturday night and my husband and I went with our 2 teenagers (16&17). We were sat at a nice corner table as requested on our reservation. However, the table was set for 2 and we were not given menus or water glasses because according to the hostess "we have 2 big parties going on and have no more menus or water glasses, I'll bring them over as soon as I have some. Finally, we got menus, water and the 2 additional place settings. Our waitress was very pleasant and nice. While she was taking our order, the host(?) a gentleman at the front desk came over to her and interrupted our order taking to tell our waitress to go over to another table because they've been waiting! He brought her over to the other table and said this is your waitress, she'll be right with you. Then she came back over to our table to finish taking our order!
Food took a while to come because " the 2 big parties have the kitchen backed up". When our meals did finally come, they were hot and delicious. Not sure I'd run right back to that place- can't seem to handle their crowds/customers...

Seafood risotto was covered in red sauce, couldn't taste the rice. Some seafood was undercooked and the shrimp was tough and overcooked. My husband's stuffed shrimp was only okay. The vegetables were skimpy. We will not make a second visit or recommend it to anyone.

This used to be our favorite spot to dine for special occasions. The last few times that we've been there, it just hasn't been the same. The first time our waitress was swamped. She never stopped back at the table to even check on our meal. Maybe they were short staffed that evening - I'm not really sure. This last time, we went a little earlier thinking it wouldn't be as crowded. It wasn't - same amount of waitstaff on, but because it was earlier, it wasn't a problem. Unfortunately, the food was not up to par. It's too bad - it used to be a top notch place where we always left in good spirits. Now, the prices have gone up and you definitely get less bang for your buck.

There were 4 of us for dinner and we all were very happy with the food. The waitress was very friendly and helpful with the menu. We hadn't realized that Sunday thru Thursday the restaurant offers two entrees with a free bottle of wine for a very reasonable price. There must have been at least 20 entree selections one could make for this offer. My husband and I do not live very close to this restaurant, but the friends we met do. It was well worth the ride.

We had Polyann who was fantastic. She had a large party and four tables including us. We did not suffer and she constantly checked on us. She is out going and makes our dinning pleasure extraordinary. Love the new look.

Went here for a get together with work friends. Huge selection of Italian entrees, had the linguine and clam sauce which was excellent. Service was a little slow but filled up very quickly on a Friday night so understandable. Wait staff and bartenders were friendly.

Food was excellent, and the service was outstanding. Very much an open restaurant so no real private nooks to be with that someone special. We were there on a Saturday night at 8PM and it was really quite. Not even at half capacity. Strange.

Porticello is one of the very best Italian restaurants in the area. I haven't had a meal this good in 1 year (and I have been to plenty in the N. End and Rhode Island). Superb food. The only caveat was the waitress- she was a little slow in moving to get our drinks and bread and we had to remind her. Other than that, the ambiance, food, all over well-being of Porticello's was to die for~ Bravo Mario (owner and from Italy)-- Bravo!!!

We were seated immediately in a corner & had no problem hearing each other. There was a good selection on the menu. Appetizers were plentiful. Everyone enjoyed our meals. We were celebrating a birthday & the waitress overheard us & brought a complementary dessert .
Overall I would recommend this restaurant

Porticellos is doing renovations to the restaurant. They look amazing so far and we cannot wait to see the final product. Food and service was great. We had Polyanne, only reason we go. She is friendly, funny and makes the experience worth it. Keep up the great job Porticellos.

Fathers Day- food was very good as usual. Our waitress was overwhelmed I think, she lost our orders, brought the wrong soup to one of our group. Forgot an order to go. Could have used another waitress on the floor for Fathers Day. There were large groups of diners. Long wait for check also. We opted for dessert at Hilliards ( ice cream). Delish 🤗

There was potential but every course fell short of good. We started with the blue point oysters. 5 for $12. 4 of them were tasty. Last one looked not right. My wife tried it before smelling it. That was a mistake. When I smelled the shell after you could tell it was a low tide oyster. Anyone shucking should have noticed this. But ok we figured that was our fault for not doing a smell test first.
I asked about the PEI mussels. How they were size wise and our server said they were BIG. Very disappointing because I'm a mussel fan. Eat the best mussels at Red Stripe and those are BIG. These were the tiniest I've ever seen. Broth was good for dipping bread though.
We both got the Chilean Sea Bass special. I love this fish. But there is a way to cook it so its firm yet buttery. This was soggy half way through. I couldn't figure out if it was sitting in the sauce to long before coming to the table or the cook didn't sear it properly. Either way I've had much better and at $29 a dish I expected more.
Unfortunately this was not the hidden gem we were hoping for.
We made a reservation because we weren't sure how busy they would be around 7pm.
We went there specifically because I wanted Baked Stuffed Shrimp for my Birthday dinner. It was large jumbo shrimp with stuffing, and of course melted butter served with roasted potato, and green beans. It was delicious. My son had desert which was apple crisp. Good size portions.
Very pleased with our selection.

The service & atmosphere was as great as the meals that we had. I found this place just by searching for someplace different to dine with friends for our anniversary and both of their birthdays. Everyone commented on how great of a find it was. We will definitely be taking the 45 minute drive again.

The ambience is very relaxing and low key. The veal saltimboca is amazing and the fresh warm bread with oil is a dream come true when u go there famished. Service was great too very attentive waiter, and food came out in a very reasonable amount of time.

We have been recently dining in Boston's North End for family occasions but due an early flight the next morning we decided to dine locally last Saturday. On the recommendation of colleagues we tried Porticello and we were not disappointed. The service and the food equalled what we have gotten in the city but for half the price. We will be returning soon.
