Portofino Restaurant Review

: 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. Among appetizers, we like the crab cake arancini with lemon saffron risotto and pesto aïoli. Pastas include seared scallop fettuccine made with day boat scallops, uni butter and caviar; and gnocchi with wild mushrooms, arugula and truffle fonduta. More substantial entrées include the sustainably sourced salmon treated saltimbocca-style, accompanied by butternut squash purée, apple wood-smoked bacon and Brussels sprouts. Among sweet temptations are the ricotta cheesecake, chocolate hazelnut bar or gelatos in the flavors of salted caramel, white chocolate espresso, vanilla bean mascarpone and pistachio. Portofino welcomes children five and older.
