BETHEL, Conn. — Now that Portofino's Restaurant and Wine Bar in Bethel is back in business and serving up its signature Northern Italian continental cuisine, the community is invited to celebrate at a grand reopening Tuesday. 

The grand event will be Tuesday, March 7, from 4 to 6 p.m. 

Grab a friend and head down to enjoy a complimentary Miller 64 and delicious appetizers, say owners Louie and Rocco Selmanti.

The popular restaurant and bar reopened in January after it was closed for year. A faulty sprinkler system flooded the restaurant in January 2016, causing extensive damages in the popular restaurant and bar.

"Thank you for your patience," the owners said. 

Portofino's first opened September 2011, with its beautiful bar and wood interior and a main dining room offering a separate quieter more intimate experience.

Its hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mondays to Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 4 to 9 p.m. Sundays. 

Thursday is Ladies Night, buy one drive and get the second free from 5 to 9 p.m. Live entertainment is offered Sundays from 6 to 9 p.m.

Portofino's is located at 213 Greenwood Ave. in Dolan Plaza in the center of Bethel.
