~"My friend's mom had her birthday party at the restaurant last week and it was a very pleasant experience. They seated us at the best table in the house by the window close to the piano with a lovely pianoist playing soft music throughout the night. The head chef was in the house and served us exquisite 5 course meal from clam casino to pasta royale. Friend's sister and brother both came from out of town and it was the first time the whole family unite this year, so we spent over 3 hours eating talking and laughing out aloud all at the same time. The staff were very accomodating, never rushed us throught out the dinner even it ran 15 minutes after their closing! I will definitely bring more friends here again for a nice relaxing Italian meal.

~"We go to Portofino a lot because the food is consistently good, the waiters (esp. George) are terrific, the owner Carmine goes out of his way to please. They will make your order exactly as you want it. Change the veggies, leave out or add ingredients which I appreciate as I am picky! I get the Veal Marsala baked instead of fried and it is so tender you don't even need sauce. For an Italian restaurant they have the BEST chicken soup I have ever had. Decor is very nice. There is a violinist ir piano player in the evening. Valet parking. My family loves this place. "
~"Great Italian food. The restaurant offers buffet lunches and brunch on the weekends. Love the pizza, as well as the other food. Friendly staff. Expensive. "
~"The deserts are fabulous. Mmmmmm delicious! "
~"I love coming here on buffet night or brunch day. The staff is friendly, especially the owner who greets everyone who walks through the door. Makes for a great family or romantic atmosphere. I especially love the musicians who play nightly. The piano bar and guitar players play any song you request. A true gem in Queens. Finally, the food is delicious. "
