    The Best Italian Restaurant in the Washington, DC Area

    I eat there at least once a week and I say you won't be disappointed.

    Excellent Food, Service, Atmosphere

    The Portofino Ristorante was recommended to me by the Crystal City Marriott Concierge. It was the best all around dining experience I have ever encountered. The restaurant is very cozy and the atmosphere wonderfully relaxing with soft nostalgic music in the background. The service was of the highest quality of any restaurant I have ever been to even exceeding that of a famous Chef's in Miami. At least 5 waiters attended to my table and to every need, never leaving one unattended. I was dining along, and the owner came by the table and asked if everything was ok, and personally attended my table as well as his two lovely daughters. The conversation made me feel welcomed. This is a family owned business that is ran with pride and it shows in the lovely atmosphere, service and quality of food. I would recommend this dining experience to everyone, from beginning through main course, through coffee and dessert. I hope to visit this restaurant again when I return to the Crystal City area. Also, it is within walking distance of the Crystal City Marriott via the underground Crystal City Shops which makes it very convenient. Thank you to the Portofino Ristorante.

    Excellent Italian

    My daughters and I are from Baton Rouge, La. and had dinner at Portifino's with four of our friends from the D.C. area. We had a most enjoyable night from the appetizer to the coffee after dinner. The food was excellent and our waiter was just so much fun. He kept us well fed and entertained. We met the Puletti's (the owners) and Mrs. Puletti checked on our table to be sure we were happy with our meal. Being from the South, we pride ourselves on good food. I would recommend this place to anyone.
