I have lived in CT and New York, and am a frequent visitor to Providence, RhodeIsland. My hometown was truly an Italian enclave. If a business in any of these areas cannot produce truly authentic Ilalian cuisine, they cannot survive.
Portofino's would not only survive, they would excel in any of these communities. We are lucky to have them in Charlotte.
Their food is exceptional. My wife's reaction to their grilled chicken salad made me jealous. Their apizza is unsurpassable, and their other Italian specialties are deliciously Italian. Every entree and every appetizer, and every dessert will leave you wanting to return again and again.
Add to this, their pleasantly friendly owner and helpful wait staff, and
Portofino's becomes your only destination for a delightful evening out.
