Great Italian food and great service

The menu is not that large but based on the choices made at our table everything on the menu is there really good so anyone should be able to find something they like. Dishes range from Classic Italian pasta and meat dishes through to more modern takes. The specials were exactly that! Some of... read more

Had lunch at this restaurant with friends at the end of our holiday. Location looks like an office from outside but inside there is a magnificent layout with vaulted ceilings and extremely tastefull furnishings. Staff were superb and even showed a dry sense of the ridiculous when I managed to eat someone else's meal by mistake ! Food was excellent... More

Our office staff had a going away dinner for a collegue there last night. I have to say we were there years ago and weren't impressed but decided to give it another try. We were blown away by the expert preparation of each and every course. The olive and cheese platter and the bruchetta were out of this world (i... More

This is a great restaurant. Food is exceptional AND reasonably priced. It is perfect for both business meetings and couples' evenings. The waitstaff is way above average. And Tony is a Patriots fan! The halibut special is the best fish dinner I have had ANYWHERE.

A lovely up market Italian style restaurant. The menu is surprisingly small which makes choosing pretty simple. Loaded with fish dishes and vegetarian the food was lovely and fresh. I had the shrimp which was wonderfully presented with potatoes and asparagus in a lovely creamy garlic lemon sauce. The steak looked fabulous but maybe a bit big for lunch!

It was business dinner with 6 people. Nice restaurante with plenty of Space, well decorated. I had the Ceaser salad as starter and it was very good. For second, the bisteca Porcini. Was good, very good however the plate was to full... The wine list was very complete ( and expensive if we compare with Portugal...)

First time at Porto Leggero with 4 out of town business colleagues tonight. My expectations were high after reading all the great reviews. Our experience started off well as our waiter memorized the extensive menu and explained the menu. It was downhill from there....bruschetta was on cold bread, entree was average, waited 20 minutes for our waiter to take our... More
