Portofino's Italian Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Comfort fare drawn from all the Italian-American favorites defines Portofino. Start with the mussels marinara or fried calamari, then enjoy Big Apple-style pizza and sandwiches. If opting for noodles, go for pasta puttanesca and other Neapolitan selections. Veal and chicken dishes, particularly the specials, are solid as well. Desserts hit the standard notes, again with such choices as cannoli and tiramisu. The short but serviceable wine list suits the menu well. Simple d├ęcor and hit-or-miss service can't put diners off the good food. Other locations.
