A holiday tradition has returned to town this year — Christmas Eve dinner at Portofino's. "Christmas Eve has always been one of our busiest nights," said owner Tony Ramadani, owner of the restaurant, which had been closed since it was heavily damaged by fire on Dec. 12, 2010. The eatery had a soft opening in June and has been serving customers its trademark Italian specialties ever since.
In keeping with Italian tradition, the restaurant will serve a variety of fish Christmas Eve, along with the regular menu. "We're going to serve tuna, scallops, all kind of fish, along with everything else," he said. "We get so many customers, and it is just a beautiful evening."
