This is a wonderful place for couples, families, business lunches, or just a dinner out with friends. Pleasant, attentive staff. Bread to die for! Great Italian food (and good portion sizes). A delightful ambiance. All at very reasonable prices. (Credit cards not accepted.) Frequent often!

My bride and I wanted a friendly, yet intimate place for a good meal; she loves steam and I let the menu move my mood :) The food hit the spot - she loved her filet topped w/lobster and bearnaise sauce, and my tuna tartare was perfectly; plentiful and tasty. The the downsides were that I prefer more wasabi (but... More

This establishment has been in WIlton forever. I ordered Frutti Di Mare which consisted of shrimp, claims, mussels a few scallops in a Marinara (Red Sea Sauce) Fra D'iavilo. The shrimp was not crisp...it has a mealie texture. The sauce was not a fish like sauce rather it was tomato sauce without a hint of the sea in it.. The... More

Food and atmosphere very good but issue is they still don't take credit cards -a major inconvenience Known to locals as a favorite spot Been going there since we moved in 20 years ago ( except when construction die to fire)

I have been to this restaurant and its sister restaurant in Danbury, CT. While the Danbury, CT MAX 40 has a slightly bigger menu, this restaurant for the items it carries is nearly the same and also excellent. The steaks are about the best in the area and it is an enjoyable place to have dinner in Wilton.

I loved this place and really enjoyed the food. I treated my daughter and her friends out for a (birthday) girls lunch. They loved the food as well. The restaurant is very open with high ceilings and interesting lighting. The wait staff are very friendly and accomodating. The prices are above average. That said, I was really surprised when I...

The wine choices are excellent, the service is better than most, the menu offers a wide selection and the specials are excellent. This restaurant has a very comfortable, quality ambience, quiet, enjoyable. One of our favorites to enjoy with friends. I highly recommend it.

Great menu and setting for the entire family - pizza, pastas, burgers and daily specials. Newly renovated. They only take cash which is a bummer but there's an ATM inside. Outdoor seating in the summer.

Longtime fixture in Wilton Center. Consistently good food & service. Owner, Tony, has always been innovative and renovated Restaurant in classy ways. Great place to bring kids & family for pizza but also cozy booths for a romantic dinner and large tables for bigger groups. Gracious indoor/outdoor feel & lovely outdoor dining by the river. Fabulous long bar area w/TV... More

The newly decorated Portofino is really nice, with the large windows and outdoor patio. It was nice on a cool summer evening and the service was good. The food though was disappointing. Nothing special pasta dishes, the appetizers including the calamari were nothing special. Given the prices and fact that they don't take credit cards, it's not worth a visit.... More
