We went to Portofino's for our Girls Night Out. I loved the chance to order an appetizer portion of the entree for a discounted price. Warm goat cheese and mushroom appetizer was fantastic. Wish I had ordered the Lamb. It was the best of the three entrees we tried. We will definitely come back.

We had a really nice evening on the patio at Portofino. The octopus appetizer was delicious, very tender and great flavor. My husband and I both order specials, a lamb shank and lobster fra diavolo. Both were tasty and enjoyable. If you're in the neighborhood, it's worth a visit.

The menu selections were intriguing. The actual food was even better. Very creative blends of flavor with superb presentation and service. Looking to impress your date or have a unique dining experience with friends, this should top your options list in Buckhead.

Food was not bad but certainly nothing extraordinary. Based on open table reviews I expected more ambiance and higher quality. A nice neighborhood restaurant to take family or friends for a casual dinner but not a place to entertain or expect exceptional food. Nice people and adequate service.

Simple but delightful assortment of entrees all served well and tasted as expected. Antipasti assortment fine the calamari was outstanding while the meatballs were good the cheese had a nice presentation thought it was underwhelming. Service friendly and competent, as was the atmosphere of the restaurant very enjoyable.

It was OK. Not spectacular but OK. Some things way too salty -- liberal use of ham and sausage in other dishes, such as seafood. The Italians don't do this. Pasta was well cooked and served. Had pieces of shell in both clam and lobster dishes. Use caution.

This was our first time at Portofino's. We had an 8:00 pm reservation, but arrived a little early. We were seated outside (recommended) promptly. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable. My wife's appetizer, the lasagna, was especially good. We will be back and this time, bring some friends.

Everyone at the restaurant was wonderful as we celebrated our golden anniversary. The food was superb, the service perfect and the reception at the restaurant perfect. We want to thank everyone at the restaurant for being so great.

This place was amazing! Met up with a girlfriend this past Friday night. I had a wonderful glass of the Sancerre to start, the peach soup, and the chicken. I loved how my chicken was juicy but crisp at the same time. My friend had the spinach salad and lobster pasta with HUGE pieces of lobster. She also had a glass of their only Malbec which was good too. She said her salad pretty much made her full because it was so big. The scenery outside on the patio is beautiful and romantic. I feel like I should have been on a real date. Our waitress Kelly (I believe that was her name) was so sweet and funny. They ended up bringing us two complimentary glasses of prosecco to enjoy after our meal. I will be back hopefully on a romantic date!

Ambiance is amazing. Anthony was fantastic in providing menu/wine pairings. The octupus appetizer is delicious. Love the red pepper pasta entree and the scallops. Portofino holds very special memories for me and my man!

This place never disappoints! Kelly, our waitress the past two visits, is amazing! She's super sweet and super fun, makes the whole experience even better. The food is great! One of our long time favorites! A must try!

Food was exceptional and service was exemplary. Waiter, I believe was Eric. Friendly, attentive, conversational. Felt welcomed and appreciated not to mention quaint, charming ambiance and fabulous everything. Quite a treat and well worth the cab ride. Thank you Portofino.

I came here with my fiancé and this was our first visit. The waiter wasn't friendly and told us he couldn't serve us bread until we had ordered, which made our dinner seem rushed. We ordered several pasta appetizers which were good, but our entrees were only ok. My fiancé thought his dish (braised pork) smelled like dog food. Overall, the place just wasn't friendly.

We've been regulars since the day they opened, and have never missed dining there with friends on New Year's Eve. We have yet to be disappointed in the food, wine or service. This is one of those places that consistently does everything right.

Michael the owner greeted us, our table was in this amazing historical looking room next to a very old large antique glass window. It was easy to have conversation, not loud. There was a large party nearby, not a disturbance at all and it was obvious they were enjoying themselves. We were a party of 3 friends from out of state and a frequent patron took out pictures outside and said they loved it there and went frequently. That's a wonderful recommendation from a local ! The waiter was so, so, so helpful and interesting. The food was truly excellent, varied and interesting. I had the specialties from Sicily and the paired wine. My friends loved their food. It was a wonderful experience and highly recommend it.

My mother, sisters and niece were joining me before a trip to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. We were early so that we could do both. Our server was nice enough, but not really friendly. The food was average. It sounded better than it tasted and the portions were very small. I have been to Portofino over 20 times and this visit was disappointing.
I will still go back as I love the atmosphere and wine list. I do wish they would have less dishes with Goat Cheese :)

Portofino is a never-fail for me. Food, service, atmosphere... it's a perfect package wrapped up in a sweet neighborhood house. The patio is also one of my favorites in Buckhead since it isn't overlooking busy Peachtree Street.
