Cheap but slow drink service

Great Food for Price but overall service was quite slow we only got offered 2 rounds of drinks. Cheap Steak and meals on offer. Everyone was happy with there meal but everything was under $20 so who could honestly complain.

Wandering along the street on a freezing cold winter day we stumbled into Al Porto Vecchio. Was pleasantly surprised. Lovely place with a nice open fire and very affordable hearty food. The $12 lunch menu had some great choices and we loved our meals. The coffee was excellent , and if you are into cocktails try the Grandmother - it... More

We are locals to the Williamstown area and are regulars at Al Porto Vecchio. The food and drinks are moderately priced, in fact much cheaper that similar eating places. The service is usually quick and the staff are very pleasant. The location on the Waterfront with views of the city is brilliant. On hot Friday and Saturday nights in January... More

I arrived in Williamstown in the evening and needed a quick meal. Al Porto is in the front street amongst other restaurants. I looked in the window and it looked great on a cold night. I was seated by the fire and served very promptly. They had main course specials for $12. I chose Veal Parmigiana which was about $24... More

Food fantastic and reasonably priced. Service great. Ordered coffees and the barista was not happy with the one he made so made another free of charge. Lovely place to have lunch.

Enjoyable, generous meals at very reasonable prices. The drinks were not overpriced either. Friendly staff and prompt service.

Popped in for lunch on this sunny autumn day, left more than satisfied. $12 all day menu was good for the wallet and very tasty indeed. $14 Porterhouse steak was a big piece of meat. I'll pop in for dinner next time in around this part of time in the evening.

The space is a little cramped inside, but that was the only downside. The food was good and the portions were really large.. especially the kids meal. The service was decent. I would go back.
