Service very attentive. Food was mostly okay. For the price it should have been much better.
Really enjoy this restaurant....you never feel rushed. The food is delicious. It is small and very quaint. Have been several times, always good. Wait staff attentive. Don’t plan on being in a hurry....I mean that in a good way. As was mentioned you never feel rushed.
Ambiance is very much neighborhood restaurant feel. Best short ribs in town. Amazing risotto an desserts are spectacular specially the strawberries in sauvignon cream!
Always a great place to have dinner!!
This was our third time at Cafe Portofino, and once again, we were not disappointed. Overall, the food was excellent and the service was great as well. I can definitely recommend this restaurant.
Wonderful neighborhood restaurant... located in a strip mall, next to Party City. Have been to many other Italian restaurants in the area, but this is by far the best. Excellent food and service... it can be a little pricey, but most worthwhile.
Always a great meal!
Best spot in Pinecrest. Mauricio is such a great host/owner. Making us feel like home. Food as always delicious. Service is like nothing I have experienced before in Miami. Same employees, same quality, personalized service. They even remembered us.
Excellent dinner choices, good service and interesting wine list.
Excellent food & service. Highly recommend for any occasion.
Delicious! Excellent service
Went with my two young daughters to celebrate my promotion. The place was very cozy, the food was excellent and the service superb. They even accommodated my daughters last minute request since she is vegan. We will definitely be back.
Great service and good. Kudos to mauricio and the team
Nice place in a strip type mall , in a area that does not have much in good food this Italian place stands out as a good neighborhood eatery that can save you time traveling to other areas
Nice meal. Great service. The food was yummy. Just not 5 stars yummy. The appetizer portions are on the small side. Otherwise great dinner.
Bday very nice
Caffe Portofino has been a hidden jewel in Palmetto Bay for many years. The service is excellent, the food is wonderful and the quality is consistent. I highly recommend Caffe Portofino.
Went with my family for my birthday. Food was excellent, wait staff were wonderful. Water was refilled constantly. All in all, a very positive experience.
Very very attentive service , food fit for foodies, great place all round
Service was really good but the pasta bolognese was very salty, even after they remade it.
The Chicken parm was good. The tostones were excellent.
Everything about this restaurant is excellent and the service is exceptional!
Everything was Delicious!! Excellent Service!
Excellent neighborhood Italian restaurant staffed by nice and talented wait staff and chefs. Good choice for meals and wine .
This is definitely one of our favorite restaurants- services and food is always amazing!
Food was delicious but I wish the portions were larger. My husband got the snapper special and it was good but small. He had to go next door to Panera and get a soup! Eggplant appetizer was also great but enough for one person.
Food and service were amazing as always, they always make you feel right at home!
Always a marvelous meal, great service and personal attention. This is a hidden gem.
Pleasantly surprised by how great the food was! Extremely tasty and the ambiance was great! I would definitely recommend it to anyone that doesn’t feel like eating at the same old franchise Italian spot. Will return!
Overall caffe Portofino is very good. Most of their dishes are really good but some are Sub par like the penne bolognese which its heavy tomato sauce overpowers the meat and pasta.... all you taste was tomato sauce.
Aside from some of this ... service is excellent and their daily specials are very good.
The food was excellent and the service was very cordial and timely
We enjoyed the restaurant and will return
Recommended for a good home-made Italian food
Great food and great service.
When it is not busy the tacky music is a distraction.. ravioli with pear was delicious .. chicken parmigiana good
I’ve been going to this restaurant for years. The staff and its owner are amazing. They always welcome you as family. The meals are always unique and constantly changing as is their wine selection. I highly recommend it
Celebrated a special occasion, the staff was very accommodating and took care of everything. Fabulous service! Chicken Parmigiana with Pink Sauce was the favorite and Tiramisu for dessert was spectacular.
Cafe Portofino is always wonderful. The service is outstanding. The food is remarkable without being fussy or pretentious. If you want to dine rather than just eat, if you want to be able to carry on a conversation, if you want to relax and not be rushed, if you want a dinner that will remind you of some of your favorite neighborhood places in Italy... then you want to visit Cafe Portofino.
nice family run place good food good service
hidden in strip mall owrth the effort to find
You can NEVER go wrong in this restaurant! Awesome mushroom appetizer!!
Excellent food, great service, and very good location! The ambience was incredible and the staff was very welcoming and attentive. The selection of wines was exquisite and the chef outdid himself!! I had an excellent time, will be coming again very soon! Highly recommend this spot for a nice dinner.
Food, wine list and service all outstanding! Some of the best risotto we’ve ever had!
