    I went to Portofino for a Sunday Brunch and was disgusted with the price and the service was not good. I don’t know if it was the boss who was there as well and just seemed to be standing around looking and not doing anything. I would not go back again

    First visit to Portovino at their Sunday Brunch. There were 5 of us all with different tastes and everything we had was excellent. The salad bar was very tasty. The shrimp and calamari tender and nicely seasoned. The Prime Rib excellent and cooked to perfection. Dessert table had lots of variety. Was very impressed. The service friendly and liked the fact that when our plates were removed so were our knives and forks and were placed with clean ones. Busy but the acoustics were very good and could talk without a problem. I look forward to going back again.

    I will never go to Porto Vino again, ever. We dined at Porto Vino last on my husband’s birthday. We were a group of eight. I called ahead to see if I could bring a cake and they said yes but mentioned there was a charge of $3.00 a person to cut the cake. I found it to be fairly steep but brought a cake anyway. I offered to pay the $24. plus taxes and service before everyone arrived but was told they’d bill me later. They made a point of telling me several times about the fee to cut the cake. The food was overpriced and mediocre at best and for seasoned wait staff, the service was slow, not particularly friendly and in my opinion, way below standard. When it cam time for the bills, instead of charging my bill the $24. fee for cake cutting, they add $3.00 on to the bill of each person in the group. I was totally embarrassed. I was disgusted by the lack of know how and tact on the part of the staff. Nope you won’t catch me going there ever again.

    We went to Portovino recently (about 12 girls from the office); the service was impeccable despite the large group, the waiter was friendly, courteous and lauhged at all our lame jokes. I had the mussels with gorgonzola sauce — TO DIE FOR! And the huge, home made French fries were outstanding. Everyone enjoyed thee dishes they chose and the portions were generous. A bit pricey but if you consider that, at lunch time, you get salad or soup, dessert and coffee thrown in, it’s a great value.

    I went to this restaurant with a couple of friends and we all enjoyed it. The veal parmesan was quite tasty and definitely filled me up. Dessert comes with your meal, so I ordered tiramisu after my meal to satisfy my sweet tooth.

    Portovino is a bit pricey, but it is completely worth it. I had the pasta bolognese and had to take some of it home. It’s a good idea to make a reservation ahead of time on the weekends because it gets super busy at this restaurant.

    Service is impecable there, we go once to twice a week! They treat us like gold.
    Pricing can be high, but if you really look at what you get on the table d’hote, you realize it’s a pretty fair deal at a bring your own wine.
    Lunch is reasonable and never saw a manager not come to the table good or bad times.
    They have some of the better meat and fish in town.

    I agree, we a similar experience at Portvino’s, they are more concerned with thier bottom line than with customer satisfaction.

    We won’t be going back anytime soon!

    This place sucks, the food is over priced and service is at best mediocre. We phoned ahead to ask if we could bring our own cake for a birthday party, they said sure no problem. When we got there we were charged $3.00 a serving to have our own cake served to us. When we asked to talk to the manager he did not have the time or balls to talk to us. This is very unproffessional in my opinion. To sum up this joint is too pretenious and over priced for just an other chessy wanna be ” restaurant”.

    Each time I dine at Portovino it is always a great experience. The food is always prepared fresh and served in a timely manner, no matter if I went with the oven pizza, pasta or filet mignon.

    I have yet to go there for a business lunch but will definitely keep it in mind next time.
