What a fabulous meal!!

Posted on 04 / 12 / 2010

We are strict ovo-lacto vegetarians and wanted to have a lovely meal during our week in Kauai. We read that Portofino was good and were so pleased with the entire experience. The waitstaff was superb and the atmosphere divine to be sure...but the food was amazing. We had lovely salads and the best Eggplant Parmesan I think we've ever had! It melted in your mouth. The veggie lasagna was terrific and the desserts were too. I can't wait to go back there--to Hawaii and to Portofino!!

Pros: Wonderful Food, Attentive Staff, Lovely indoor and outdoor seating
