Visited Portifino’s for an early dinner and had their scrumptious Stromboli. The serving size was meaty with just the right amount of sauce, quite delicious, and more than enough to share The server was friendly, informative, and professional. We will definitely return.

Excellent pasta and pizza selections led in with fresh salads with homemade dressings. Associated with their original restaurant in Charlotte, this location in Gastonia provides a great atmosphere for dine in or pick up. Very friendly service. For newbies, the wait staff makes terrific recommendations....More

Choose Portofino's Italian Restaurant to meet up with a friend I had not seen in a very long time. The food was excellent. The restaurant is a little small and the kitchen noise was loud but that could be over looked by the excellent food...More
