Porticello Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Outstanding food and very friendly service for a good price. It was a bit of a hidden gem and last minute reservation for us. We were a little under dressed and brought our young kids, and were made to feel very much welcome. Staff went above and beyond to accommodate us and our kids. It otherwise seemed like a great place for a date, small group, or family dinner. Looking forward to going back.
Was excited to try Porticello's after hearing great things...we had the date night coupon that we were looking forward to for a while (we don't get out very often without the kids!) The sign out front advertised the date night as well and when we asked our server, she informed us that we couldn't use it for Friday nights. First disappointment of the night...we would have gone somewhere else for a better meal that cost less. Not much flavor to the scrod special and my husband was hoping for a bigger serving. So, overall, we were disappointed that this was not the best place for our first night out in a while.
Porticello Restaurant was a pleasant surprise! The menu was varied, daily specials were offered and there were many choices for specialty cocktails and wine. The food was excellent, the portions were good-sized and the service was outstanding!! I would highly recommend this restaurant!!
We continue to come back to this restaurant hoping that things will improve. This visit was much better. We used to frequent this spot all the time, but service seemed to be sluggish each time. Not sure if they needed more waitstaff or we just picked busy nights. Our visit on Saturday was great - the only disappointment was the much smaller portion on my wife's favorite dish! It was much smaller...I'm not sure if this is effecting their business or not, but it may be why the restaurant was very quiet for a Saturday night. Food was excellent, but pricey for the amount of food you receive.
The food was outstanding as was the service. Our waitress, Meghan, was excellent. Very knowledgeable and attentive. The food was really, really, really great. I can't wait to return. we go out often and have been wanting to try Porticello for awhile but just haven't found the right time. Now I will always make the time to go when I want an excellent meal, in a great atmosphere , and comfortable decor.
I have been here for several business dinners over the past 7 years, and for that reason, very rarely for personal dinners with spouse or friends. The quality of the food has been consistent, and we were there on a more or less an off night (Wed), so it was quiet, relaxing and we did not feel rushed. It was very relaxing...
This is the second tine in a few month's time that we were there on a Saturday night, with a reservation. The first time we waited over an hour!! This time we waited a half hour for our table. I will NEVER go again on a Saturday night, they are so disorganized and have no clue how to properly handle reservations and unhappy guests. All we got were excuses. Not impressed with the management. Don't need this aggravation, plenty of other good restaurants which know how to properly handle a dinner crowd. We will not be returning!
We have gone to this restaurant many times for special occasions and have always been pleased. Our former pet peeve was limited parking which has been addressed with additional parking next door.
We went there Saturday evening for a mother's day celebration. We made the reservation more than a week in advance with no problem or so we thought. When we went to get seated we had to wait 10-15 minutes because there were no menus available which I have never experienced before. When they finally had enough menus we were taken to our table. We passed many open round tables which I am sure were reserved as well. We were taken to the back room where there 2 large parties (12 or more people) and were given a table that was crammed between the 2 large tables. When I say crammed, I mean the staff had trouble servicing the tables because we were in the way. I assume this table was a temporary table trying to maximize revenue for the busy evening.
We had trouble all evening conversing because of the noise level. If I wanted loud, I would have chosen a sports bar. My wife was very disappointed. Luckily I seated our 2 children next to her so she was somewhat able to talk to them. I am not sure if we will ever go back.
First experience here, but it wont be the last! Food was fantastic (Scallops with Butternut Squash Risotto). First date situation, and the volume level was great for chatting. Server was great! Very attentive, cordial, and genuinely happy to service! Any negatives are very minor, barely worth mentioning: parking is a little congested - leave the full sized SUV at home. Background music - I don't recall hearing any, but I was there for the great food and conversation anyhow. This is a great spot for any fine dining situation!
My husband and I were with my friend and her fiancé. We were seated in the room in the back where you could have a function. Once the party of over 20 were seated the noise level went way up and we couldn't hear each other. Also the waitress was attending to all of the in the party while taking care of us at the same time. This is why I didn't give them 5 stars. The food was good. The guys ordered the special prime rib and liked it. My friend and I got the scrod and baked stuffed shrimp. We were happy with ours. My only negative was that you couldn't choose your vegetables. You had to take what they had for everyone, roasted potatoes and mixed vegetables. Also side salads were a la carte and a little pricey. We were too full to have dessert. We would go again but would request not to be seated in the back room.
We usually have Polyanne but she was out sick. We had Marianne she was outstanding, our second favorite staff. We also dealt with Connor and he was amazing. He never let our bread or water disappear. It was an extremely busy night but they both made us feel like we were the only ones in the restaurant. As always thank you Porticello for an amazing night.
We had a 7:45 reservation and didn't get seated till close to 9pm the food came out around 10 and it wasn't at all good. The portions were skimpy. I think they want people to stay at the bar than rather to seat them to eat? I wouldn't go back horrible experience
Had a 7:30 reservation. From the point we walked in you could tell the Host Staff being lead by a manager was overwhelmed. At check in we were told that there were two tables ahead of us. At 7:35 I asked how long they thought it would be so my wife and I could decide if we were going to try and deal with the busy bar. I was first met with "it's only been 5 minutes." By the manager. I told him I was not upset just trying to understand. He informed me that he had many tables about to leave and it would only be about five minutes. 20 minutes later 5 tables had been sat and the foyer had not emptied out at all. We finally left with no end of our wait in sight more than 30 minutes after our reservation. Mind you 30 minutes is not long. It is the fact that we felt they were hiding the length of time. Do not tell someone 5 minutes and only 2 tables are ahead of you when clearly it was not the case.
We had reservations for 7:15 and we arrived at 7 and were told they were running late. We were not seated until approximately 7:50. We were given an inattentive waitress. She made us wait for drinks and appetizers. I pointedly asked about the bolognese whether it was too creamy. The waitress said it wasn't. And I asked no cheese on top. I was given a plate of very creamy bolognese with a mound of added cheese in top. She proceeded to try to scrape off the cheese at my table. I looked at her and handed her the plate and told her I would take the veal. It came to the table pretty quickly. When she asked about dessert I said I did want it but she never brought the menu nor did she ask if we wanted coffee. She presented us with the bill and walked away. I was very dissatisfied with the service and doubt I will return.
