Portofino Restaurant Review

: It's an evening well spent in this cozy Italian charmer at The Mirage. Portofino's warm welcome includes its wine lounge, a relaxing bar featuring wines by the glass, artisanal charcuterie and cheeses. Head further into the space for the "ristorante," where guests can enjoy traditional casual, yet upscale Italian fare from executive chef Michael LaPlaca. Among appetizers, we like the crab cake arancini with lemon saffron risotto and pesto aïoli. Handcrafted pastas, which are made in-house, include chicken "foie-fredo" made with fettuccine with herb-roasted chicken and foie gras alfredo sauce. More substantial entrées might range from veal osso buco to chicken rollatini Parmesan with house-made marinara to branzino with grilled asparagus, potato leek gratin and hen of the woods mushrooms. Vegetarian and gluten-free menus are also available. Among sweet temptations are tiramisu, Nutella crème brûlée and gelati. Portofino welcomes children five and older.
