I have been to the restaurant several times and have always enjoyed myself. The apps as well as the entrees span the gammet of deliously satisfying to simply content. The somewhat hidden jem are the fresh juice martinis, in particular the grapefruit when available. It oddly seems to pair well with everything.

Although we have not been since the expansion, the ambiance and food quality at DelPorto is absolutely exceptional. It is elegant and very high end Italian based cuisine. We also love Sal and Judys and Impastato Cellars but those are much more traditional Italian - excellent in their own right but 4 star compared to 5. Don't let the location... More

I don't read the type of food this menu offers...however once a skeptic --- now a believer. The food is delish service is good and environment is great. Please do yourself a favor go and order, everything will be good.

Very nice place with great food. It had been some 5 or so years since I had been here. Last time I went John Besh was eating there - and had nothing but good comments. The fritti misti was excellent as a starter. The pork chop with the sweet mustard sauce was unbelievably good. Basically everything was very good -... More

This restaurant has it all together. Having said that, they like all restaurants they can have an off night. But the husband/wife team have shown for a number of years that they have the right stuff and offer dishes that can set the standard for the area. This is the restaurant whereby we rate all other restaurants we visit, they... More

The food was very good but expensive. The waitress didn't have any patience and was always rushing us. I am a martinis drinker and that was the most I ever paid for a martini. This was our first time we ever eating at Del Porto.

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.
