Benny and Julie always have a way of making you feel like family when you're there. The food is above and beyond because it is made with passion and love for the people they serve and what they do. The atmosphere is wonderful the prices are fantastic but they pale in comparison in to the taste of the food! I haven't had anything I haven't liked! I don't think Benny could make anything that I wouldn't want to eat.
We tried Porfofino's this afternoon and loved it! I so would have licked my plate if no one was looking! I had the salmon bella donna and my husband had a "small" pizza...we will have pizza again for breakfast...it was huge. Our only regret is that we were too full to try dessert. Yummy!
Amazing food and super friendly staff. Benny makes you feel like part of the family. The restaurant atmosphere is very nice and comfortable. The food is simply delicious. I had the lobster ravioli, which was divine. Portofino's does not disappoint. I cannot wait to go back!
Everything we ordered was fresh and delicious! Their house salad dressing, yeast bread, eggplant parmesan (not everyone can prep this) and ziti with meat sauce was wonderful. We'll be back.
Our favorite Italian restaurant. Hands down. The owner himself (from Italy) often serves the customers. He shared with us the story of his family, the restaurant, and how the recipes have been passed down from his grandmother. The ravioli is my favorite, although I have yet to try anything I didn't like.
Had dinner at Portofino's last night and we loved it...my second time there and my husband's first. I had the Spaghetti and Meatballs and my husband had the Meat Lasagne and we both loved our dishes. We will definitely return! Oh yes, their hot homemade rolls are to die for!
The food was delicious, the service was really great. The restaurant itself was beautiful, romantic, the lighting was subtle. Definitely will go back with my husband. It was our first time trying it and we really liked everything!
I had a wonderful trip to Portofinos last night. It was my first time there and will definitely be returning as soon as possible. Our waiter last night was amazing and very attentive and helpful. The food was excellent and was more than I could have hoped for in Tyler Tx. If I could give my experience more than 5 stars I would. The experience and wonderful staff made my night a great night out.
My school brought a large group of elementary students to eat at Portofino's as part of an evening field trip. Despite our large group, the staff was friendly and patient in assisting our kids. The food was great, the refills kept coming, and the staff got us fed in plenty of time to make it to our next event. I highly recommend Portofino's for a group event!
My husband and I got takeout from Portofino's today. I grew up in Germany and visited Italy several times so I have high standards when it comes to Italian food. Portofino's is the real deal. They have authentic Italian cuisine for reasonable prices. I had their fried zucchini, lobster ravioli, and tiramisu. Everything tasted great, especially the ravioli. I will definitely be coming back.
The wait staff were really on their toes. Our salads came out about 3 minutes after our order was placed. Our dinner came not long after that. It was hot, plated beautifully and really delicious. There were some of our orders with a special request and it came out just as it was ordered. When we go to Tyler again, I'd love to go back.
THE BEST Italian restaurant in Tyler BY FAR! This place always delivers the best food! They are consistent, the atmosphere is great, staff is friendly and the food is a solid 10. My Italian fiancee recommended the place for an evening dinner and it was the best choice we made by far. This is our favorite restaurant in all of East Texas! Ignore the bad reviews, you HAVE to try this place! Perfect date restaurant to take your lady for a nice evening with good food and atmosphere!
Service was perfect. Food did not take too long and was excellent. My wife had shrimp scampi and I had lobster ravioli. I tasted her and both were excellent. Pricing is great. We will definitely add it to the rotation.
This is the best Italian restaurant in town by far! Everything from the music to the manager is Italian. Everything they make is amazing, and I've had most of it. I had my rehearsal dinner there and the whole staff made us feel welcome and made everything go smoothly. They are wonderful.
his place is fantastic. Great food, great atmosphere, THE BEST SERVICE. In a world of commercialized Italian restaurants, they have created something special. Give them a try, you will not be disappointed.
