Portofino's Italian Restaurant Ayrsley
Portofino's is one of my favorite restaurants in Charlotte. The food is always delicious, and the service is generally good. The pizza crust... So freaking awesome. Not everything is amazing, as I would like some more options for appetizers that are healthy, and the menu is a little limited, but the staff is willing to mix and match and create exactly what you're looking for. Highly, highly recommend this place.
Wonderful service. Vegetarian options. Best marinara sauce I've ever tasted. Fresh bread. Great for lunch during Monday-Friday. Very clean.
Excellent quality food, great dining atmosphere! I love eating here for the food, but also because I can actually hear the people I'm eating with! I also appreciate the fact that any entree can be made gluten-free!
Grilled salmon great. Atmosphere and service very good. Ice tea fresh and slice of lemon just great. Quick lunch perfect place.
I literally have no clue how it has good reviews. I was so disappointed in this. First I have to say the service was great. Very friendly waitress. But the food has no flavor. The chicken I got was like boiled chicken that was covered with a soggy prosciutto and cheese. The pasta was just boiled pasta, no sauce no flavor no cheese...bland. The spinach was just boiled spinach. No flavor, no seasoning, I dont even think it had any butter or anything. My boyfriends meal was a red sauce and had boiled cut up chicken....what restaurant doesnt pan sear or grill chicken? Nobody wants boiled bland chicken. His red sauce was bland. Jarred pasta sauce is better than this. The food was over priced. The only positive thing was the house dressing and bread. Not enough to return here :-/
