Elizabeth of Portofino's
Very happy we chose do go here overall a great experience food was delicious, definitely coming back.
Great food, even better service! Will definitely be back
Happy Valentine Day
As usual excellent food at a reasonable price. What is there not to like. Dinner for two is bargain. Comes with a bottle of house wine,Salad, choice of an entree, salad , potato and vegetable or choice of pasta. Complimentary home made Limenchello completes the meal. Owner Elizabeth is always there and she is very personable and friendly.
This is our go to place any time we are flying out of providence or visiting in Providence
Had a fantastic meal and service was superb. Brought a couple with us who remarked that they will be back soon as well
The service was the best part of the experience. Our waitress was attentive and prompt. Overall, the restaurant felt quiet and we were put in a room behind the bar. It worked out well as we had 8 people in our party. However, at 9:15, the place cleared out and they proceeded to breakdown the tables in the room. We hadn't finished our meal yet! Didn't leave me with warm and fuzzy feeling. Appetizers and drinks were delicious. Mix reviews on main dishes. My meal was "just ok".
In town on business and the hotel recommended this restaurant to us. We will be back the next time we are in town. We loved it!
Great atmosphere. Just nice laid back dining with great food and service
Unassuming from the outside but so pretty and comfortable inside! Great service, tasty food and fair prices. They had $45 Dinner for 2 menu including bottle of wine but we didn’t take advantage of that. Chicken Francese with double veggie was so delicious but chopped salad was disappointing. Very plain and over cooked dry chicken.
Hadn't been to Elizabeth of Portofino's in a while. Was able to get a reservation. Food was just as I remembered- attractively plated and delicious.
Food and service was good overall... and there were some issues with the bill, but they were addressed/corrected.
Great Food all around.
Justin waited on us like we were his only concern.
Elizabeth is amazing , shes so friendly and caring . The food is great . Place is quiet , great crowd . Staff is so nice . I always feel welcomed when I go there . Its my favorite neighborhood spot . I have been there for dinner , and every occasion I have had . Wonderful place .
As usual food was excellent. Service was prompt and remarkable. Dinner for two is a bargain with a bottle of house wine and salad with entree choices and complimentary after dinner home made Limoncello. Been there before and will continue to go there in the future. Would recommend to any one who is into the Italian food
Went to Elizabeth’s of Portofino tonight..was a little worried when we first walked in at 6pm....no one was there..we skipped restaurant week menu..my martini was terrible, the appetizer of white beans and sausage was not great BUT our entrees were good..8oz filet, substituted for garden salad and broccoli, delish and my steak was more flavorful then capital grill and husband’s seafood di mare he said was really good and cheesecake seemed frozen or not homemade at least
We tried Elizabeth's of Portofino's for restaurant week. The food was excellent (calamari, chicken parm, & cookie pie) and the atmosphere of the restaurant was warm and welcoming. We definitely recommend it and will be returning in the future.
Excellent service and food. Real hidden gem. Date night or night with friends.
Excellent food and nice service.
The food was...one of the best italian food places, I've tried ever. First time ive ever had an Arancini ball was in Cape cod 10 years, and every time I go an italian restaurant, I look for it and try it but its never the same. And when I saw it on the menu at Elizabeth's, I was excited. One bite and I was in heaven. It took 10 years to find a place that makes it like the first time I remember it.. And the best part its close to home!! The rest of our dinner? I wanted to look my plate. Delicious. A must do!
This was our first time to this restaurant and it was a special occasion in our family. Every moment was special, even when I knocked over a full glass of ice water across the table. The waiter Brendan was attentive, friendly and helpful. He fixed the wet table issue quickly and quietly, and at the end when dessert came, he brought it with a simple candle for our birthday girl. The food was absolutely delicious and plentiful. We shared calamari and Caprese salad, which were both standard, but then had two chicken dishes, lasagne and baked scrod that were each cooked nicely and flavorful. The sangria - both red and white - was perfectly mixed. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Excellent menu. Excellent services
My partner and I are semi-regulars at Elizabeth's of Portofino and were greeted warmly (despite a chilling rain) by the no-charge valet, then inside by Elizabeth herself and Amy, the bartender and our server, like the returning old friends we've become. Having said that, we saw many diners in the full house having a good time and enjoying the whole experience. Amy served up a perfect martini and Aperol spritzer to start. As Jim and I had sampled most of the items on the menu, I chose one of the specials that day--sea scallops scampi over linguini--and Jim chose something on the menu that looked good, but unfamiliar... unfamiliar, we learned, because it was a new addition to the menu--a seafood casserole. After the bread and baked bulb of garlic and our shared appetizer and salad plus the main courses, we had no room for dessert, but were served complimentary glasses of strawberry champagne. A stunning culinary experience.
One of our favorite restaurants! We would highly recommend.
We thoroughly enjoyed our night at Portofino’s. Elizabeth is so welcoming and attentive. Food was delicious as always. The homemade lemon cello and pizzelles are such a treat!
Amazing as always! The staff is incredibly attentive and the food was absolutely fantastic! My favorite Italian restaurant in RI by far.
Everything was excellent
We always enjoy our night out at Portofino’s and tonight did not disappoint. Great food, great service and great atmosphere. The bartender. Amy, is always friendly and gives great service. Elizabeth (owner) is so friendly and welcoming.
We will be back ! A+++
All 3 of us loved our food. Waiter was excellent and service was very efficient. We will go back.
Food was nothing to write home about. Dessert was good and the homemade lemoncello. The rest left a lot to be desired.
Fantastic place for Thanksgiving dinner.
Look forward to return again soon
Elizabeth’s never disappoints. The food quality is exceptional and the owner is very hospitable as is her waitstaff. They have a very good menu with many options to choose from and they give you great value for your money. One of my favorite restaurants in RI.
thought i was on a fast food restaurant
My husband and I were celebrating our 31st Anniversary. I mentioned that on Open Table when I made my reservations. They sat us in a quiet corner table and the waiter wished us a Happy Anniversary as soon as we sat down. The attention to detail right from the start was wonderful. The olive oil, warm roasted garlic and parmesan cheese with Italian bread on the table was soooo good. The lasagna and veal parmigiana were delicious. Because it was our Anniversary, at the very end of our meal, we were each treated with a complimentary glass of champagne and tiramisu. Then, a nice little glass of homemade limoncello was brought to our table as a finishing touch. This was my first time at Portofinos, but it will not be my last.
Everything was great, we had a wonderful meal and service.
Pleasantly surprised when we got inside. Very cozy and warm atmosphere. Food was great and service was awesome. We met Elizabeth and she was wonderful. Will definitely go back soon.
Been there many times before but this experience was not good. They expanded into another store front. So more people/vehicles equals no parking! Once inside, after about 15 mins. +/-, our waiter finally came over to greet us. Our drinks took forever as did our food order. Food was good but not much quantity for the price! We had to ask for bread twice! Not once did our waiter check on us after our food came. We asked the bus boy for water and we never got that either. The waiter never asked if we wanted desert and my wife never got her left overs. We waited for him to come back but we got frustrated and gave up! Payed the bill and left. He seemed rushed/occupied with the bigger parties in this new section they opened. Won't be going back anytime soon.
First time I was very impressed with the quality of their food and service was excellent
Parents Weekend with our daughter! Waitress was great and so was food!
Awesome food! Chicken Parm was outstanding! Beans and broclirabe was really good.
Food was very good. Amy was a great waitress. Our table was ready at our reservation time.
