Our waitress was fantastic- attentive and very patient with our party of eleven!
The food was excellent- served hot and timed so that everyone could eat at the same time- not an easy thing to do with a large group.
Great food at an exceptional value. Pizza was superb.
Thank you to Armando's for a great dinner. We had a table for ten and it was a great experience from the moment we walked in the door. Our waitress Wesley was very attentive to our table. All of our plates arrived at the same time piping hot. Everyone raved about the food. Thanks for making our reunion a great experience.
The food was terrific and the service was great! Practically no wait time! Wesley our waitress very nice and accommodating. I would definitely go back again!
Overall a good experience. Food was average for a high end restaurant Pricing was higher than expected with only $$ on the app.
Great salads & service. Nice ambiance. Fresh but absolutely tasteless pizza. Put some salt in the dough!
WE love this place and the red sauce is the best around. My dish and my wife's was good. We only have one complaint. This is not Orlando. We have New England Seafood available everywhere. If you going to over a dish with Lobster in it, please, please make it fresh and include the tail meat. The lobster used in our dish was not fresh and it was all claw and knuckle. The base of your food is amazing, fresh seafood will only send it to another level. Thanks
Food, service and all around everything was was great. Everyone really enjoyed their meal from Chicken to pasta and the wine was fine!!!
Armando's is an outstanding restaurant with great Italian food, outstanding service, and fun atmosphere. A place that makes you want to keep coming back over and over!
Traditional Italian food in a comfortable atmosphere.
We had our monthly book club meeting on Sunday. Fantastic pizza and appetizers - excellent drinks and service. Highly recommend for a casual dinner or place to dine with friends. Great ambiance and excellent service!
Donna was a great waitress and was readily available whenever needed.
My husband and I went for dinner on a Friday night. Our waitress was excellent! Helped explain things on the menu. The food was delicious! Highly recommend for an upscale relaxed dinner.
Our server was excellent. Had a few issues with the food and she was extremely apologetic and went out of her way to make us happy.
Pizza is the way to go. Excellent.
Other two dishes, one pasta one chicken were good, not great.
Bread (we ate too much of it waiting for our entrees) is mediocre.
Atmosphere is nice, contemporary yet warm.
We will be back for pizza.
Will definitely be back. Delicious food, fair prices. and great service.
The staff at Armondo's was extremely accommodating for our large group. Our server, Dawn, went above and beyond and made our family gathering a real pleasure. The food was very good and the atmosphere is quite nice without being stuffy. We will definitely visit again and would recommend it to anyone.
Was one of the few restaurants available in Portsmouth on a Friday prior to the theater so we gave it a go. Group of 6 and everyone was happy with their meal and the service was also very timely and we finished with plenty of time to get to the show.
Delicious food, generous portions , friendly and accomodating. We have never been disappointed!
The table was ready and set as soon as we arrived. Our waitress, Lori G., was attentive and very nice throughout our service. She also was a great help when deciding what to order. Wonderful apps, the bruschetta and the carpaccio was eaten up and enjoyed as quickly as it was brought to the table. Dinner and dessert simply got better and better. We are in Portsmouth on vacation for the second time but plan to make this a destination next time we are back.
First time here but won’t be my last.
Best meal of the summer, and we spent many nights out as this was our honeymoon summer vacation.
Huge thanks to ownership and staff for a lovely evening out in Portsmouth.
Great service and great food! Reasonably priced.
Ate here with a group of friends. The food tasted very good and presentation was nice. The bruschetta was very pretty to look at and tasted great. I would recommend flattening the chicken breast for the chicken dishes as mine was a little too thick. Otherwise very nice.
We totally enjoyed our dinner I had the eggplant rollatini dinner and my husband had the penne Armando's both were quite delicious and filling in fact we had food left over and since we were on the road traveling we couldn't take a doggie bag with us no place to keep it refrigerated so sad. Our server was perfect he waited for the right time to put in our entree while we enjoyed our house salad which was scrumptious too, would definitely recommend to any of our friends traveling in this area.
Average at best. Typical Italian American restaurant that thinks more is better.
Went for my birthday dinner, our waitress was so very sweet. Loved our drinks and my dinner was amazing! My husband got the special that evening, we was not as fond of his dinner as was of mine! We both had a great time and are looking forward to a return visit.
Had the meatballs for appetizer, they were delicious. Had the pear salad, also fantastic. Entree was vitello piccata and was outstanding.
The service and food were wonderful
The homemade pasta was a delight
Would recommend highly
It’s your Italian meal destination
Unfortunately, there is nothing that stands out at this restaurant. Its overpriced Italian food with mediocre execution. The bread given at the table was worst I have had, I never thought bread could be so bad. This place needs some oomph if it wants to make it long term.
The accommodated our party of 8 last minute. The food and service were both very good! We all enjoyed our meals. I would dine here again for sure.
The food was very good.....our server was very attentive to our table. We will return.
We had a great summer location with our table near an large open screened window with view of the street. It was like an outside bistro setting without the openness of being on the street.
The Bruschetta appetizer was light with fresh tomatoes, basil and EVOO. Chicken Parmigiana and Rigatoni Armando. Both were well seasoned and flavorful. Bring your appetite because portion size is large, especially for Chicken Parmigiana. We would gave loved to try Dessert but after bread, appetizer and main meal, we didn’t have room.
We plan to go back on our next visit so we can try dessert.
Our only suggestion would be to add local art to the blank walls. It would build on the great location, food and service.
Loved the ambiance and service! Had the salmon and it was fantastic! All four of us had different dishes and would definitely return!
I remember when it was the Rosa Cafe - very funky now - we were in Portsmouth for the nite and booked the reservation late. Ive eaten at another Italian restaurant in Portsmouth which was supposed to be the best and it was average...the food at Armandos was reasonable and delish - the bread and the dipping combo - amazing - our waitress was outstanding - this is a place Ive already texted my Portsmouth friends about and told them to get over there.
First try at Armando's, and we'll be back. Good food at rational price points. Professional and personable service delivered by Lori G.
