Recently dined at Portofino with friends. I had heard a lot of positive comments about the restaurant, so i was excited to try it. Very little ambience, decorating needs to be updated. Very nice waitress, but she was very busy and hurried. House Cabernet was...More

Good food, friendly service. Lunch menu is not as complete as the dinner menu. The lasagna was very nice though not the best I’ve had.

We have very few restaurant selections in the south end of St. Pete, this being one of the few sit down restaurants with actual tablecloths. It is ok for very casual Italian but nothing spectacular.

A diverse, but very traditional Italian menu, done well. My husband had the veal cacciatore, which was subtly herby and smoky, rather than the one-note, heavy-on-tomato, version commonly served. I had the chicken valdostona, chicken cutlets with ham slice, Italian fontanella, wine sauce and mushrooms....More
