This visit was for dinner and we were warmly greeted by the owner, Michael Anderson and our server, James. The menu offers a nice variety and the wine list is international with focus on US and Italy. Good options for bottle or by the glass. Monthly food and wine specials are offered from various Regions of Italy. Focaccia bread and... More

Went here with my family at the recommendation of our hotel concierge, and it did not disappoint! From the fresh baked bread and olive oil, to the meatballs and goat cheese appetizers, to the pasta entrees-- all were fantastic! Also try the Brussels sprouts appetizer, which was really unique! The house Chianti was very nice, too! All of the food... More

Food was amazing. Right in Buckhead, nice ambiance. Crowded and menu was inventive. I had the lamb ragu pasta and I'll never get anything else it was that good! Excellent service. Great spot to meet friends or go as a date. Nice valet parking a bonus! Grab a drink at St Regis before dinner!

We discovered Portofino on, where else, Trip Advisor. We were glad we did.....This is a lovely, cozy and romantic restaurant very close to our hotel, the Grand Hyatt Buckhead. The weather was chilly, but the ambience, food and service were anything but. All of us raved about our dinners.....The server was FANTASTIC, and frankly, it was hard to leave. We... More

We ate there on a Saturday night and were very pleased. Service was attentive. My wife had the octopus appetizer and it was slightly seasoned and tender. The pasta dishes were very good. Menu does not have a veal dish and the dinner special had sold out the night before and was not available which was unfortunate as well. A... More

Went on a Friday evening our waiter Anthony was exceptional. I had the seared scallops and the wife had a bugatine pasta. In both cases we had a very different experience with taste. Both dishes were prepared with a combination of foods/flavors that we would normally not have. It was all very good. The staff wished us a happy anniversary... More

Bucatini all’Amatriciana may be the best Italian meal I have ever had. The Calabrese Pepper in this dish offered a taste that I had never had before but can't wait to have it again. The ambience of this restaurant in the Buckhead neighborhood just added to the overall experience. If you haven't been here before, try it because it will... More
