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.

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

The service was fantastic - from the moment we exited our car until we got back in. The staff was most friendly and helpful and the food was great. We will go back when we return to Atlanta.

I come here all of the time!! I love this restaurant for special occasions / etc. I came here this evening with my girl friends and wasn’t very pleased with the service. My friends and I were asking questions about the menu and possible replacement options, to which we received snarky responses from the waiter. I hope we can chalk this up to a one time thing- because I usually do love Portofino for the food and the service.

Terrific meal, service and atmosphere. My fish was perfectly seasoned and cooked. Salad was over dressed for my taste but still delicious. Beautiful setting and quiet enough to have a nice conversation.

We LOVE Portofino! Always excellent food and service. Very good wine (bottle) selection and prices. Noise level a little high, but isn't every place these days? Nice 'casual elegant' little place. Great for date, special occasion, meeting friends.

The food, service and ambiance make us want to return to Protofino. Trout was perfectly cooked and served with a tasty and interesting spaghetti squash. Bolognese was flavorful as usual.

Made a reservation for an anniversary; even though we arrived late we were welcomed politely and were given a table near the window seat. The waiter was extremely friendly and knew a lot about all the food on the menu and was able to offer helpful recommendations. The food was all absolutely amazing, and despite the appetizer being a little smaller than we had expected (only 3 meatballs), everything was well worth the price and we left the restaurant very satisfied.

I loved Portofino. Everything about it was great; the food, the service, the atmosphere, and the overall experience were superb! I recommend getting the NY strip and the tiramisu! Also you should definitely make a reservation before you go to guarantee yourself a table.

Dined here with friends. Food was ok, I ordered my steak medium rear, came back sliced and more medium to well done. Gnocchi tasted like thick dough. Perhaps it was just what I ordered but I found it very average.

Portofino has time and time again been an excellent evening out. The setting works as both a date night spot and as a group of 10 with family and friends. The food is always top notch, service on point, and plenty of great wine choices. It does get a bit pricey, but not overly so.

Quaint atmosphere with lots of outdoor seating. Looks like a great spot to return to in warmer months. The squid ink pasta was by far the star of the star of the meal and would order it again. Also ordered the special which was a halibut dish, and while tasty, it was not a high end dish worthy of the price.

How “cheesy “ is this? I put down Anniversary on Open Table and we were greeted with a half glass of champagne. We thought “how nice’.
THEN WHEN WE GOT THE BILL WE SAW THAT WE WERE CHARGED FOR OUR TREAT!

This is one of the more romantic restaurants in the Atlanta area. It's famous for proposals and out-of-this-world cuisine. The night I went the valet was solo, and there were cars stacked up out into the street, so that was a little frustrating - too bad they didn't appear to staff properly.

That said, our reservation was on time, the server was courteous and knew when to break in and when to do another lap. He never let us go low on bread - I appreciated that.

The wine was great, the food was great, and the experience met expectations. A great place to go on a date or if you're looking for a romantic place to take your significant other.
