Portofinos - Eastway in Charlotte

Perfect calamari.

Bruschetta - delicious and full of garlic.

Shrimp Fradiavolo - my standby.

My favorite Italian place in Charlotte is Portofino. They have several locations including in east Charlotte and in south Charlotte on Park Road. The Eastway location is nostalgic for me as I went there on occasion as a youngster. The bread is fabulous - served warm with real butter. I also really like the orange colored dressing that they serve with their salads. If you're ever in the mood for Italian in Charlotte, you should definitely give this a try.

Eggplant Parmigian.

Salmon Mediterraneo - I was a bit disappointed with this - not sure what the bits of meat all over the dish are.

Grilled salmon salad with the delicious house dressing.
