Old fashioned red sauce, table cloth restaurant with crooning piano player singer. Just what your aunt from Podunk fantasizes an Italian restaurant to be. Better food than Chef Boyardee and Valet Parking.

Went to a luncheon after a funeral service with about 35-40 people. Not being able to pinpoint how long services and cemetery would take, the staff at this restaurant pulled off a four-course lunch of a pasta, salad, main entree and desert, flawlessly. The bread,...More

A long-time favorite, whether pizza or entrees. Service is very friendly and efficient. I was sorry to see their Tuesday evening buffet end in favor of unlimited pasta night.

Portofino is for me the best pizza in town and out of town! The staff are the nicest in the world and it has nice customers too. As I said the pizza is out of this world!

Hadn't been here for a while. Used to be good food and reasonably priced. Surprised at the hike in prices but more disappointing was the lackluster buffet and very average ala carte offerings. Service amiable and attentive. Cannot recommend.

Nice layout inside. Food was average, pricing average for the location. Waiter could be better trained in not leaning over the table to give cheese on top of pasta and should explain specials better with the pricing. Valet parking very convenient where the restaurant is.

There is a very nice Sunday brunch which includes everything from homemade omelets to pasta. Unfortunately, their website is under construction so I can't give you more details. My recollection of the price was $20 to $25... More
