It's tucked away in a shopping center that's not easy to find. But it's worth the effort to find it. The food is consistently delicious, portions are generous, and the staff is helpful and attentive. It's our go to Italian place.

Everything about IL Porto is wonderful. We have eaten here for the past 15-20 years and it never gets old. It is our "go to" Restaurant for Italian food. The Wait Staff is always pleasant and helpful, but our favorite is Yaneth. She is outstanding. No matter what we order the food presentation is always done appropriately. Have I said... More

Good food and good service sum up our visit last night to Il Porto. Our waiter, Oscar, was excellent and also kudos to the support staff for keeping our water glasses full and general attention to removing plates, bring more bread, etc. Try the roast veal or the veal chop if they are specials. Delicious.

We have been going here for years. It is absolutely the best. service is superb. the food is prepared as well as I have ever had. My wife had salmon and I had Rockfish. the entire meal was great. The ambiance and the owner who we have known for a long time makes sure everything is A-1.

We live nearby and were looking to try a new restaurant. Based on the tripadvisor reviews, we chose Il Porto. All of the reviews were spot on. There seemed to be a large following of "regulars" that were called by name, the food was delicious, the home made bread was awesome, the portions were plentiful, and the prices were fair.... More

Il Porto is a reliably good,old school Italian restaurant that never disappoints. the white pizza is great, the prices are reasonable, they have a decent selection of wines and plenty of choices on the menu. specials are good and the veal chop is great. now that they have expanded, you shouldn't have to wait regardless the size of your party.

My wife and I had dinner at Il Porto before going to the theater at the Gaithersburg Arts Barn and greatly enjoyed the experience. The menu is quite similar to the menu at one of our favorite restaurants in Bethesda -- Pines of Rome -- which is understandable since the owner once worked there. The indoor part of the restaurant... More

I have had the eggplant parmigiana and the cheese ravioli. Both are delicious and it is easy to tell they are homemade. This is my favorite Italian place.
