Our Story of Portofino

Vincenzo and Elena married on September 7, 2008, they decided to start their business venture and open their own restaurant after growing up in family businesses ever since they were small children. On September 21, 2009, Portofino opened its doors in the small town of Montpelier, Virginia. The Sanzones thought Montpelier was a great place to open in because it was a small, cozy town that they could grow in. Because small family businesses mean a lot to them.They picked the name “Portofino” because they love the town of Portofino, Italy, near the water. We strive to use the freshest ingredients and bring you delicious home-cooked meals in a family-oriented atmosphere. We appreciate everyone’s business and continued support and look forward to serving you for many more years in Montpelier. They now have a family of their own, with 2 boys and a girl. We hope our family can grow with yours.
