Italian cuisine was born when, after building the city of Rome, Romulus and Remus discovered Greece didn’t deliver to their new address. Taste the origins of an empire with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $20 for a Sunday brunch with unlimited bloody marys and mimosas for two (a $43.90 value)
- $25 for $50 worth of anything on the menu<p>
During Sunday brunch, chefs forge made-to-order omelets, applewood-smoked bacon, and smoked salmon with capers and hard-boiled eggs. For dinner, they toss jumbo lump crab with spicy pepper marinara to create seafood fra diavolo ($19) and smother braised veal shanks with marsala demi-glace for veal osso buco ($23).
Portalli's Chef Keith Holsey portions his dishes according to the traditional Italian four-course meal. This doesn't stop the chef from crafting a menu of creatively interpreted Italian classics, though, such as Cioppino over fettuccine or Salmon con Granchio. Chef Holsey's creations consist of uncomplicated flavors that, according to the Baltimore Sun, allow "good and simple ingredients to work together." Portalli's also caters to families with dishes such as spaghetti and meatballs or meatball flatbread pizza, which teaches kids about fractions so they don't have to learn about them on the street.

“our drinking water was cloudy...didn't bother us too much because we were enjoying our mimosas and bloody mary's; our server was very pleasant-staff overall very nice and accomadating, in fact your hostess kept my cell number to call in case of an earlier opening for our reservation, which she did; so we were able to get in an hour earlier :-)”
