Portofino's Italian Restaurant Arboretum
I always love Portofinos- their linguini and white clam sauce is the best. Their specials are typically great too. Good stromboli and eggplant rolllatini This last visit however, I was disappointed in the calamari. It was over cooked and tough. Usually its better then that.
Ordered wings, Calamari, as well as 3 other items for dinner. Wings were completely inedible! The meat was so dried up on the inside, We couldnt even bite through it. Seems as if they either burnt them beyond recognition or they re- fried wings that had been cooked earlier coving them in sauce in hopes they would seem fine. Horrible is putting it nicely. Calamari was very strange. The tentacles had a totally different breading than the rings. Clearly pre-breaded. Not made in house. I could have picked these up at up at restaurant depot. Weve eaten at Park Rd. location and absolutely loved it. This will be my final visit to the arboretum location. Im definitely not one to complain much less write a review but tonights meal was beyond disappointing. In times like these restaurants must go above and beyond to maintain business. Serving food like this is a sure way to lose the customers you have.
Everything was superb!! Employees were attentive, friendly and stayed busy. Highly recommended to lovers of great food
Been going here for YEARS. Never disappoints. Large portions, good price. Great service. Always a go to for some good pasta that fills you up and that has leftovers for the next day!
What can I say about Portofinos that hasnt already been said? The food is fresh, its consistent and its fantastic. The staff no deviation always on point, attentive there to assist with any recommendation. Highly recommend this restaurant for catering for dinners for groups not had a bad meal in years of patronage.
