For three years we have stayed here on our way down to Florida. Every year the front desk person has suggested Portofino’s. This year we did try it! It was absolutely great! Husband had the chicken parmesan - great choice and he loved it. I had the chicken picatta – it was different (our server did tell me) it had... More

While traveling in December, 2016 we stayed at a nearby hotel and decided to place a carry-out order here. It was a very pleasant experience. Although we didn't dine inside the establishment, I did check it out and was impressed with the cozy atmosphere. I visited with several members of the staff that was on duty and was happy with...

We both had the pizza buffet, which included the salad bar and 3 types of pizza. Toward the end of our meal, they put out an apple dessert pizza that was outstanding. The others were OK. Deep dish and the crust was good. Salad bar was good as well.

We visited while driving through town on I-75. The food is delicious. Good breadsticks with dipping oil and herbs before the meal. They have a split menu with Italian and Greek food. There is also a salad bar with pizza. We had Spanakopita and pastitsio. It was the best I've had in a long time. Reasonable cost, good service, beer... More

I, like many of the other reviewers, have had good food here. It's clean and family friendly. If you don’t want to leave East Ridge and are looking for something a little better than the typical burger and fries, this is probably your best bet, although that’s not saying much. The last time I was there, I ordered an Italian... More

Wish we had this place back home in KY. The portions are huge, everything is homemade from scratch, prices are very reasonable, and the service was excellent. Our server Andy couldn't have been any nicer took the time to talk to us and make us feel at home. This restaurant puts those big Italian chain restaurants in the shade! We... More

This restaurant was clean, the food was very good, and the waitress very helpful. They had a small buffet during lunch and I would definitely eat here again. The waitress brought out a basket of huge breadsticks and a plate with olive oil and cracked pepper for dipping. Who could resist that?!

This is a small comfortable place. You can tell they have many repeat customers. The salad bar has pizza!! My partner had cheese steak sandwich and I had manacotti. Both were really good. My meal had bread sticks, and they were great!! We also split cheesecake for dessert. This place has really good service and prices. The other desserts looked... More
