Lovely Indoor/Outdoor Venue
My fiance and I toured the space and received our quote from Shelley within 24 hours! We have been continually impressed with her excellent communication. My fiance and I both loved that the ceremony space is waterside but also more private than most outdoor spaces we saw. We also love that the ballroom doors open up so that guests can wander in and out, but not have be outside the whole night and deal with temperature changes. We have a lot of out-of-town guests, so we are happy that they don't have a rent a car for the weekend. Also, the food and drinks we tried at the tour were great, can't wait for our official tasting. Will update with a full review once our wedding has happened, we are really looking forward to having it at the Portofino!Sent on 03/28/2019

Kim is an all-star!
We toured The Portofino in early 2019 with their Catering Sales Manager, Kim Coulehan. She gave us the best venue tour we experienced on our search, by far. She has a knack for identifying your needs and helping to paint a picture of the ceremony and reception. On top of that she offered tons of options to accommodate our ideal date, in spite of a full schedule in early Fall. The venue was beautiful - they offer not only hotel accomodations, but a private ceremony and reception space right on the water. Very affordable, especially considering the location and quality of the venue. Would highly recommend to any prospective couple!Sent on 12/05/2019

The Portofino is a fantastic venue by the sea. I've been decorating and designing florals at The Portofino for over 20 years! You will find the staff wonderful to work with. The Director of Catering, Shelley Berry will work tirelessly to orchestrate the wedding of you dreams. The unique ballrooms offer breathtaking views of the ocean and the South Bay.
