Consistent quality

This restaurant is a consistently top rated restaurant in the general New Orleans area because of the great stable dishes and the creative seasonal menu. Service is good. New expansion improved availability but did not adversely affect the quality. However, it can be noisy.

The decor is nice but it is a very loud restaurant. The food is well assembled. The beef carpaccio was great! I will definitely go again.

This was a great place to get away for the evening with my husband! We stayed at a local B&B and walked to the restaurant. It's in a great location and within walking distance of anywhere in Downtown Covington. We will visit again!

I have eaten here many times and the food is always fantastic as is the service. The only negative is the noise. Management needs to get a clue that all hard surfaces is terrible for noise, please do something to soften the reverberations.

The food, the atmosphere, and the service are absolute perfection. Many thanks to our server Madeline for her excellent suggestions. The Artisan Spaghetti was absolutely delicious. The shrimp are spicy, but not blazin' hot. The restaurant can get a little loud, but that just adds to the atmosphere. We cannot wait to go back!

While in town for the Small Town Chefs awards we decided to try Del Porto Ristorante. Loved the atmosphere and the fresh peach martini. The white bean and artichoke purée with garlic crostini was smooth and very tasty. We also tried the fried seafood and onion appetizer. Very crispy and tasty. Mine was a half portion of Cavatelli Primavera with... More

Consistently great food and warm friendly service each and every time. Best bets are cocktail specials and tasty starters. The red pepper involtini and pork belly with shrimp are excellent appetizers. Local ingredients and a seasonally changing menu keep us coming back again and again!

Both the service and the food are superb in this very hip Italian bistro. Part of the enjoyment is the very attractive clientele that all seem to know each other. Lots of boutique cocktails, nice wine selection and fresh, scratch Italian cuisine! Really good! Drink specials and cheap appetizers for 4 to 6 on weekdays. Several outdoor tables to enjoy... More

The new wine room area dining is much quieter than the main dining room where the noise was so load we stopped going to Del Porto. We tried the new area and were able to carry on a conversation without shouting and could enjoy the excellent food and service. Will definitely return.
