Had a wonderful evening there with our grown children. We enjoyed drinks at the super cool bar while waiting for our table. We had pizzas, a large salad, and pasta. Everything was amazing.

We had two pizzas, both amazing. The one pictured was the Vegan Pizza. I am in no way a Vegan, wife is a vegetariann and this pizza was amazing. Good service and great bar with a great knowledge of their craft. A must for dining while in A.P.

Ate lunch there and really enjoyed the food, ambiance and service. Octopus, pizza, pasta, meatballs, crab balls & tuna tartar were all delicious. Don't miss the Surfer Girl cocktail. Go there!

I've been to porta for lunch as well as at night when it turns into a club. Food is delicious. The dj that was there rhe night we went was pretty good. We had a blast. It is a mixed crowd, but I enjoyed every minute. As far as food, I had their personal pizza and it was amazing
