Last night was first visit to this beautiful restaurant- chosen because it was mid-way between our house and that of friends we were meeting. The online menu was daunting, as so many things looked so good- and we were not disappointed in the least. The varieties of fresh mozzarella- with all the fixins- were delicious. Pastas were great, entrees were... More

We decided to try out Porto Vivo after we saw a Groupon. We knew ahead of time that the restaurant is a bit pricey, but typically do not mind paying extra if the food is good. The restaurant is attractive and the wait staff very efficient. Unfortunately the food left much to be desired. Thumbs down for the truffle macaroni... More

Porto Vivo offers a charming dining experience. Attentive staff and beautiful trendy decor make it aesthetically pleasing. The food is continental so everyone in your party can find something to their liking. Awesome wait staff . Delicious food. The short ribs were amazing. The bar is so much fun to socialize at , we didn't mind waiting for our table.

Dinner for four - baby artichoke from a can, toppde with a red pepper pesto -tasted of citric acid. Mac and cheese over cooked and under salted, Paper thin pizza is a nice style but delivery was nothing special. Butter poached asparagus tasted like steamed asparagus. No need to go back.

When we go out by ourselves or with others, this is our restaurant of choice. They've got a half-price a la carte menu during most days of the week and it's well worth it. The service is top-notch and the staff always seems to find a perfect (and large!) table, even if it's just the two of us. All courses... More

We selected this restaurant to celebrate a special occasion. It was our first time there, and we were immediately impressed with its sleek ambiance. Even the bathrooms are spectacular. The food was equally impressive. We had an array of appetizers – the Tuscan onion soup balls, the calamari, veal wontons – which were all superb. For entrees had the cavatelli... More

First off- the menus are really cool :) It's so fun to see a picture of your meal to help with the decision process. I LOVE the deal on wine on Wednesdays, and we have always been treated with such kindness when we ask seemingly stupid questions about the wine list. The food is amazing, the bar menu is even...
