Portofino Mediterranean Grill, Clearwater, FL

We went to Portofino Mediterranean Grill in Clearwater tonight. We will start with the positives; inside was decorated beautifully, the portion sizes were huge and live singer was great. That’s unfortunately where the positives stop. If you like typical BAD wedding food than this is your new favorite restaurant! The caesar salad tasted like bottle dressing, chicken marsala was heavily breaded and swimming in a cheap wine sauce found at any wedding, penne a la vodka again tasted like sauce from a jar and was very soupy. Unfortunately with how salty the food was you needed a lot to drink. The biggest surprise came with the bill when they charged us for each iced tea refill!!!!The waitress failed to ever mention this refill upon refill upon refill. In a quasi-upscale restaurant this is unheard of!!! By the way, we have to mention the food comes with a free stomach ache afterwards…ugh… bring Tums or Rolaids! We definitely will not be patronizing there again.
