Too noise.... it is not the first time I go and the noise is super high.... it makes it hard to have a conversation.
Always an excellent experience. One of our favorite restaurant.
Excellent service and food
We went for our anniversary. We have been going to cafe since 2007 and it is truly a hidden gem! Ask for the specials 😉
Great local restaurant but also worth a drive!
The food was excellent. The service was very good. I was very happy and will recommend this restaurant to anyone.
As always this place is a home run! The food is very high quality and always amazing. The service is impeccable!
Nice surprise! We just found it while driving in the area. Excellent food and service.
It was an awesome time
As always, excellent service, food, and ambiance. Place was packed, always a good sign for local restaurants! Best of luck for continued success.
Our favorite neighborhood restaurant. Great food, great service and they always make us feel special and welcome.
Excellent specials and ambiance
Amazing Food. Was recommended by a friend and he was right. The owner came to our table shared stories, greeted us with an amazing courtesy and it was clear he was doing the same to new and long-time clients.
Will definitely attend again either with the little ones or just a date night with my wife.
One of the best dining experiences in South Dade. We intend to go more often.
Small restaurant in strip center, expectations weren't too high but was pleasantly surprised. Menu was varied, wait staff made some recommendations and landed on Osso buco which was the best I've had in recent memory. Would definitely go again. Also learned they close in December.
Best lasagna in town. Food, service and atmosphere are great. Love this place.
The food, service and ambiance were great. The owner is very nice and attentive.
Excellent food and service! Would highly recommend this place and look forward to returning.
outstanding food... specials are always excellent.....always have a great experience and great wines.
Food and service consistently great! One of my favorite Italian restaurants!!
It is a good restaurant but very expensive for what you get.
Best Italian food in South Miami. Owner/Wait staff are personable, attentive, know the food and genuinely enjoy what they do....and it shows. Great menu selection and daily specials...fantastic wine selection as well.
Do yourself a favor and make a reservation for dinner. You will no regret it!
Noise level was intolerable which is unfortunate when compared with the excellent service and cuisine. Would think twice before returning.
Good pizza and beer. I would go back again.
I was very surprised at the level of service we received. We saw the waiter twice: once to to take our order, and the second time because we flagged him down for the check. At an Italian place, no one came to offer us parmesan cheese or pepper on our pasta. My wife order a ridiculously overpriced special of the day risotto with tenderloin (you called it filet mignon) which came out cold (and I mean cold) and when the bill came cost $48! Not a prime filet mind you, but about 3 ounces of sliced choice meat with cheesy rice you called risotto. I could have dealt with the disappointing meal, but the service was downright awful. Won’t be returning.
WE have domed at Portofino a few times, and it has always had Great food and great service!
A rare gem in this area. Most everything surrounding Caffe Portifino is a chain restaurant, but this place has them all beat. Best lasagna I have ever had, hands down. Highly recommend. Quiet, easy, short to no wait times usually, and delicious cuisine.
Incredible Oso Bucco I can't believe it in a strip mall. Unforgettable and the manager was extra kind and sincere you can tell they care about their customers and the food
Caffe Portofino is a gem. The food is always delicious and the service is amazing. The menu is extensive but the specials are always worth ordering! We always enjoy an evening out at Caffe Portofino. Enjoy!
A neighborhood favorite that keeps things interesting with creative nightly specials and attentive service.
Been here countless times, for years, celebrating birthdays, Valentine’s Day, date night, etc. They are great! Definitely recommend! Delicious from start to finish! Amazing service and wine list too!!
Best short ribs ever tasted. The savignon cream with strawberries is truly spectacular
Language barrier with waiter. No soup on the menu was available except soup of the day. I ordered that but it never arrived or the wine ordered to be delivered with dinner.
food is ok, service is ok, but the ambiance is too noisy. Can't hold a conversation.
The dining experience always exceeds our expectations. The specials were delicious. Malanga soup, avocado and feta cheese, seared tuna on a green plantain. It is great to see the same staff through the years, they exemplify great service. We will be back soon. Michelle
100% the best restaurant in all of south miami, it never fails to impress with its incredible service and its exquisite cuisine.
Absolutely amazing food that offers the complete Italian delicacy! If your looking for authentic Italian food you will not be disappointed! Huge delicious portions that are very reasonably priced. A must visit!
Always a wonderful experience here! We live in Palmetto Bay and it is a treasure to have this restaurant in our backyard.
