Never disappoints! Fantastic pizza and service! Will return time and time again! Must be prepared to wait, but well worth it in my opinion.

Expect to pay $2.00 per ice with soda (3/4 ice!) . For diet only the choice of Diet Sprite and Diet Coke. 1 women's stall bathroom and 1 for mens had to wait. Slow service as mentioned in other reviews despite 3-4 waitresses and lack of customers. One waitress watched the dining room like a creepy hawk and my drink... More

Portesi's has very good thin crust pizza as well as gluten free pizza. We enjoyed both on two recent visits. My only criticism is the service was VERY slow in spite of there being few other customers.

Best calamari we've ever had, and the pasta was amazing! Service was great too, although the place was empty.

If you are in the Wisconsin Rapids area and are looking for something to eat, you have to stop at Portesi's and have their pizza. Specialty or build your own, you won't go wrong. Great toppings, great crust and an overall great pizza.

Has some really good pizza and Italian dishes. Sometimes the service is a little slow...but worth the wait.The decor is the same as when I went there in the 60's.

Portesi's pizza was very disappointing - especially since we have always enjoyed the exact same pizza from their "sister" restaurant Silvio's (but decided to order from Portesi's since it is closer to our house). Portesi's pizza was cold (so crust was like cardboard), salty, lacked flavor and had little sausage. So disappointed.

This structure has been a mainstay in our town since maybe the 50's. This is NOT handicapped accessible so it was very difficult for me to get in. Pizza is great but it is totally lacking atmosphere. Looks like nothing had been changed since it was built except light bulbs!!

My husband and I love their pizza which we get "to go" often. Our family likes to eat there too so when we are together we dine in. Love the food.

Needed someplace for dinner when family stopped in. Thought we would try Portresi's. Big mistake. Place was outdated, service was terrible, and the food was worse. We waited sooo long for our food, and waited even longer after the food arrived to get silverware to eat it with. Sorry we didn't try it first would not have returned.
