Portofino is located on a quiet side street in the heart of Buckhead and has been a neighborhood favorite for 18 years. The converted house features vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, and bright, energetic artwork. The beautiful stone and brick patio offers the most enjoyable outdoor seating in town and is available on a first-come first-serve basis.

The cuisine at Portofino is inspired by the many culinary regions of Italy. The menu and wine list constantly change with the seasons.

Excellent! The meat and cheese plate was ideal for sharing and delicious. The featured white wine paired nicely with it. The pappradella pasta with mushroom ragu was divine. The sauce was white wine with garlic and leeks so it was nice and light and complemented the mushrooms. The service was excellent, knowledgeable and attentive. If the weather is nice take advantage of the nice patio. Can't wait to go back!

Reunion with old friends from Capistrano, we all enjoyed drinks on the patio and a pleasantly served dinner inside. Portofino always delivers.

We had an early dinner before hearing an author at the History Center. They opened the doors and seated us before our reservation - and before the restaurant officially opened for dinner. Our server was professional and knowledgeable. Nice evening
