The food is excellent and the staff always attentive. Since I am vegan they will make something delicious for me if I don't see an option on the menu. But it is such a nice place to enjoy amazing taste that you cannot find anywhere else. I highly recommend for anytime dining but especially for a "special event". And they... More

I went to Del Porto several times while on business in Covington. Its a locals place and the staff gets to know their customers. They take pride in their hand crafted cocktails and the bartenders seem to know what they are doing. The menu is robust with lots of options and good quality food. A couple dishes were a little...

The only downside to going to del Porto was we went on a Friday night and all the 20-somethings with paychecks in their pockets were there and oh, my, are they noisy. Staff told us middle of the week is the time to go, which we will next time. But enough of the downside. The upside was that this white... More

We had a delicious dinner with great service and a beautiful atmosphere for Valentine's Day. My steak entree was one of the best steak dishes I have ever eaten. We will definitely go back!

I've been here years ago and was not impressed, however, we made a trip back for birthday celebrations. Seating was prompt at our reservation time, the waitress was very good in describing the menu. Drink orders taken, then recommendations for appetizers - you must have the veal meatballs in polenta, they are awesome. After appetizers we proceeded to order dinner...the... More

I've been to Del Porto many times over the years, but I haven't written a review in several years. It's consistetly one of the best places to enjoy a Saturday night out on the Northshore. The atmosphere, food, drinks and service all lend to the feeling of what fine dining is all about. It can get a little noisy when... More

I went several times when it was on the side street and liked it a lot. I went once on Boston and did not go back for several years as I was unimpressed. Tom Fitzmorris , local food critic, spoke well of it so decided to give it another try. The food was terrible, so salty that even the leftovers... More
