User review by septemberbaby – Hands down!! This the best pizza in Charlotte! The Best!
Newer Portofino's on Park Road – Definitely an 'upscale' version of the Eastway location. Same good food. Very full on weekend dinners -- make reservation or plan for a late supper. Been eating there regularly since they've opened and never been disappointed. Can alter menu items to suit. Get a special and split it, you'll have plenty.
Real Italian Food – Most "Italian" restaurants in Charlotte are so-called "gourmet" Italian food. You may get a couple of spaghetti noodles and some funky sauce for $20 a plate at some of these places. Others serve chili as their sauce on the pasta and claim "it's the same thing." Natives here should stick to BBQ and grits. None of that here. Just good Italian food cheap with great service. Eggplant, mostacolli, baked ziti, etc. Authentic cheese cake as well. It is very similar to literally dozens of family-owned restaurants near where I used to live in Buffalo. Northern transplants MUST eat here. Pizza is the best in town as well. Nice and greasy, the way pizza should be.
They also have a location on Park Rd between Woodlawn and Tyvola.
The BEST! – I moved to Charlotte from New Haven CT...home to some of the best pizza in the world...Pepes Sally's Ernies, Zuppardi's ect. Portifino's is the closest I can find! It's great pizza....hint: ask them to cook it well done!
Go for the food! – I have been to the other "so called" Italian restaurants in town. Portofino's, however, is my favorite. The sauces are flavorful and the staff is so friendly. You will not pay for the fancy location like you do in many other dining establishment here in Charlotte...but you get a great meal!
Great! – Great service along with the best Italian food south of NY. No other place in Charlotte compares!
Hands down, the best NY style pizza – I went for the pasta but friends told me to try the pizza - it was the best they'd ever had. They were absolutely right! It's almost impossible for me to eat any other pizza but Portofino's. They keep it simple and use the freshest ingredients. My favorite is the cheese topped sometimes with mushrooms - simple and satisfying. The crust is crispy on the edge and just chewy enough. If for some reason have some leftover to take home, reheat in the toaster oven. DO NOT MISS the house dressing - you may never go back to ranch again!
Excellent food – Good food, good wine list, not long on ambience but better than paying $$ for the tablecloth instead of the food like you do at some places.
Great food !! – The very BEST all around Italian restaurant I've ever eaten in.
This must be heaven... – If I had to choose a restaurant to spend eternity in this would be the one. The Best stromboli I ever had and a sauce that takes my right back to Mom's kitchen. Pasta, (the food of the gods) is done right at Portofino's. There Pizza is just another slice of Heaven. Make a reservation if you can for evening dining.
