I have dined in Center City for many, many years but I have never before felt the need to write a review of any other establishment. If you're looking for quality, comfort, attentive service and the best food in town - IT'S PORTOFINO'S. Sorry that we didn't get to see Ralph (character that he is). Robert is the most graceous maitre'd who took the time to occasionally stop by our table to make sure we were well taken care of. Glen is attentive, polite and a waiter who makes sure that your meal is not just food on the table but a dining experience. The presentation was paced perfectly so that we felt relaxed rather than rushed and the fried calamari and the salmon is to die for. \r
I could write an epiphany, but simply put, Portofino is the best of the best.
Pros: Best food, best service, best ambiance, convenient location, parking
