Fantastic gem of restaurant down a quiet road. Casual country chic. I was there with a group of 10.Service was wonderful, considering the size of our group and the food was delicious. The menu is varied, full of good choices, which has given me an excuse to go back again. Walk/stroll/hike around the ground of Mills Mansion, just down the... More

Wonderful out-of-the way Italian restaurant! There were four of us in our party. One ordered steak, another salmon, and the other two had pasta dishes. All the entres were delicious as well as the soups, salads, garlic bread, and desserts! The staff was friendly and welcoming. This was our first visit and we will definitely be back.

This was a great restaurant a few years ago and you needed reservations to get seated on a weekend. Now, there are a few drinkers at the bar, few tables filled. We walked in to the place and the first thing that struck us was the overwhelming smell of stale grease. Not a good sign. The food was OK but... More

Portofino is reliably good, with friendly, efficient servers and very good food. The prices are reasonable, both for food and drinks. There is a good bar scene--for adults--and the owner/bartender plays an extraordinarily eclectic music mix of classic rock and jazz. There are a few well-chosen draft beers. We've been coming for years and never disappointed.

After a movie in Rhineback, we went to Portofino, having not been there for a long time. The food was as good as remembered, with fresh salad ingredients, a good light pasta that was not an overwhelming amount and excellent Veal Milanese. The rest of our party all felt the same way about their meals. The only miss was in... More

Excellent from start to finish, tucked in near the park in Staatsburg, right of Rt 9. Great food from peasant food to finer dining, a wonderful treat. They have specials during the week and it is a very casual atmosphere.

We had reservations here for parents' weekend at a nearby college and I wanted to be sure that our daughter got a delicious meal. While the atmosphere was nothing fancy, the food was excellent. Our waitress, Jennifer, was attentive and professional. The wine glass was delivered amply full and we had 3 dips for our bread including a pesto dip... More

In the delightful village of Staatsburg….halfway between Hyde Park and Rhinebeck in the Hudson River Valley. The atmosphere is low-key with a comfortable neighborhood feel. Pete, the owner/bartender is the initial draw. An impeccable bartender who offers up fabulous manhattans, cosmopolitans, eclectic music, and interesting conversation. Portofino's menu offers primarily Italian fare with tasty specials each week. We often sit... More

This unpretentious little restaurant was a perfect place to sit with friends on a Friday night and catch up on recent events. The menu covered the gamut from 'bar food' to dinners. A special treat was their "Flights" of wine on Wed and Thur nights that let you sample four different wines from their selection.
