Portofino's Italian Ristorante

Even as a child, Justin Engineri loved cooking for his family and friends. His passion never waned, and after graduating from culinary school in 2001, he mastered his craft at restaurants in Providence, Rhode Island, and Albany, New York. Now, as Portofino's executive chef, he continues to prepare Sicilian and Mediterranean dishes according to age-old traditions. His arsenal of pastas cooked al dente includes homemade pappardelle and linguine, angel hair, and gluten-free noodles, which he tops with ingredients such as house pomodoro sauce and local cheese. Along with heaping pasta courses, Portofino's entrees range from caramelized scallops to a signature veal rub served with roasted trumpet mushrooms, which grow only in the dark, cool practice spaces of area jazz bands.

Customer Reviews

food was very good enjoyed service as well
Rosann · December 6, 2013
Service was great- very efficient but not rushed and our server was really pleasant and informative when asked about the dinners. One of the owners also came over and chatted with us which was great- will definitively return.

The Groupon did exactly what it was designed to do. It got us to come and try a place we hadn't, and now we'll not only be back, but we're telling our friends about it. Excellent job!
