Here on a Wednesday in November. Eating solo and was seated immediately. I was a little worried when I saw only one server, however she does a good job taking care of the whole room. There is not a lot of booths or partitioning in this restaurant, more of an open floor plan. Brick wall interior with wooden floors. I... More

This is an incredible find in Easton, Maryland! Treat yourself to a delicious meal with the authenticity of the name sake of this restaurant- Portfino, Italy! The owner and chef is so personable, sharing his love of cooking with his patrons. The specials for the evening were meatballs and braised ribs- we decided to order and share! It was hard... More

I surprised my fiancé with a date night here and was blown away. The food was some if not the best I've had in the area. It was priced very well not too high and not too cheap. The dessert was unbelievable. I would suggest this place to any couple that wants a quite romantic dining date. The owner/chief came... More

Yesterday we went here to meet a group of friends for supper and catch up on life since our last meeting. Loved the fact that we could talk without yelling. The Four Cheese Lasagna was fantastic and the Eggplant Parmigiana was delicious. Everybody agreed their food was excellent. Very good service. Reminds me of a cozy Italian bistro. Will definitely...

Wonderful restaurant. The food is fantastic. The regular menu items are classic cuisine second to none. The specials are constantly changing and are always delicious. The dining area creates a casual yet elegant atmosphere. The service and interaction with the owner make for an unforgettable experience. We have dined there often and thoroughly enjoyed each visit.

My husband, son, and I dined at Portofino during the week. The food was wonderful - very flavorful. We enjoyed the owner very much; he is very personable and his daughter is, too. They have entrée specials each evening and my husband enjoyed his pork. Tartufo for dessert was a great ending to a good evening. This is a gem... More

Early in the summer I was thrilled when I realized I would be back in Easton and be able to return to Portofino's. I had eaten there about 8 years ago and remember how charming the owner, Rosario was. The food was delicious and I was hoping not to be disappointed. Well, I was not. Rosario was as gracious as...

Rosario and his daughter Laura come to your table, no matter who you are, and make sure that your meal is perfect. If you're in the mood for fantastic Italian food and want a really great dining experience, walk in Portofino,ask for Rosario if you don't see him come out first, and I promise you: You will be served well.

Truly enjoyable meal and personal service from the owner and his daughter. We started with appetizer of parmesan, salami, and olives, paired with fresh warm bread and herbed olive oil. Wonderful, authentic flavors of Italy. House cabernet is very nice. I enjoyed the eggplant parm...delicate, slightly crisp breading and fresh eggplant with linguine and fresh marinara.Just enough...a refreshing change of... More
