Went Friday 12/30/16 with friends.Reservation for 7p. Main dining area noisy and full. We were immediately taken to the party room set up for dining. Lucky for us! It was quiet, so we could really catch up. Fried calamari appetizer plentiful and delicious. Free Bruschetta for the table and the bread fresh and warm. Everyone enjoyed their entrees. Dessert was...

Had a great light lunch at a fantastic price. The bruchetta that comes out along with the bread can't be near. And if you are a fan of fish the baked tilapia was excellent

We love Portofino's, the food is great, the price is fair and you can bring your own wine, beer or whatever you enjoy drinking with your meal. Service is attentive and you will never leave hungry.

This restaurant is just about a mile from my house. The food is generally very good. But the pricing is off the charts and you can't get a refill on drinks. i.e. soda, iced tea. When I asked about this I was told, "this is the way we make money, every restaurant charges for refills". I beg to differ. I... More

Seemingly in the middle of nowhere, this place is a gem for couples dining. On a Saturday night, the place was packed out the door, they do take reservations, and they have a second room that is perfect for occasions and company affairs (~40 people, or more). It is BYO. We ordered a range of Itlaian dishes with pasta, fish... More

This is by far our favorite Italian restaurant. However, we moved out of New Jersey and do not visit very often. We did stop over the weekend and got our favorite dish; seafood over pasta and my husband and I were not disappointed at all. Oh also got the friend calamari which is my favorite too. Husband got the zuppa... More

We have been dining at Portofino's for many years wether we are with family, friends, or just the two of us. They have wonderful Italian dishes along with a number of delicious specials every day. The staff is attentive and friendly, and one of the owners, Mendy, always stops at the tables to check on how everything is going. All... More

Stopped by on a Tuesday night. Had been here in the Winter and enjoyed the food, and the fireplace. For some reason, though, it never comes to mind when we are wondering where we should go. After the other night, we will be sure to remember Portofino's. Had veal, chicken, and pasta at our table and each meal was excellent.... More
