My wife and I are regulars at Portofino's. We are on a budget so don't have too many options for a romantic date night that won't break the bank. Normally we have two appetizers a main dish for two and drinks about 3 rounds and we've never gone over 60 bucks. Drinks are 2 for 1 all day/night long, when you do that math drinks on average are 2-4 bucks each. We get our usual Whiskey and cokes which are around 2 bucks a piece. They serve 100 Pipers as their house whiskey, it tops Jack Daniels, Jim Beam, Wild Turkey, Makers Mark or Crown Royal. Not sure how they get it cause the nearest vendor is located in Baltimore, believe me I've checked. lol There's about 7 that are long time servers at the restaurant and 4-5 that usually are new faces, the owner Joey is a good judge of character, ony hire's friendly and attentive servers. You can see him all over the restaurant over seeing all operations. We absolutely love this place, it really feels like home.
I knew that Portofino had a restaurant in Homestead so when I was travelling down that way I thought I'd stop to eat. I love Homestead and in a way I liked this restaurant better than the Kendall because it seemed more comfortable. The food was just as good and service was great. I had some of there bread and the rosemary ( think thats what that was) was delicious with the smoky flavors. The pizza I had was good great especially with the extra basil..mmmmm! I Even the plain cheese pizza hit the spot. I had these doughnut balls for dessert. I liked them...very simple but good. Over all I'd give it an "A". Wish I could've stayed longer and tried some other stuff. I was in a rush!
Its pizza! You know what is nice about this place? They have never messed up my order and always deliver within 45 - 60 mins. I give them 4 stars because of this. I can get pizza anywhere but they are consistent about bringing what is a very important part of my order when it comes to Pizza Delivery. I hope I never have to come back here and edit or eat my words.
