Porto Vivo, a good choice

Four of us ate here a few nights ago. A very stylish restaurant on a side street in Huntington. It is obvious that quite a bit of money was spent to represent a certain flair, from the glass facade to the beautiful dining and bar areas. The food was very good with reasonable pricing (except for the... read more

Home goods czar and business woman extraordinaire Joy Mangano knew what she was doing when she hired gifted Chef Joe Balbo for her classy restaurant Porto Vivo. It would be safe to say that the menu is Italian in spirit but don't expect the dishes your grandma used to make. This is fine dining in the best sense of the... More

Porto Vivo is a really nice restaurant for a special occasion or a very nice meal out. The ambience is lovely, and the menu is diverse. Of course - the most important part of a restaurant is the food and it certainly does a wonderful job there as well! Everything we ate (well almost everything - the bread basket was... More

My now fiancé brought me here for what I thought was a regular night out. We had a reservations for the following night but it was supposed to snow so my fiancé was determined to get one that night. It was a 10pm reservation which I thought was weird because they closed about an hour later. We had a bottle... More

Bad waiter ask for someone else to be our server. The manager ( Stocky guy ) did accommodate but with hesitation. When I approached him, later in the evening and told him I do not normally do that . He response was very nasty and said let's move on from here. The food just k. Definitely would not go back.

Kudos to the staff at Porto Vivo for managing to host a relaxed, corporate networking dinner at the beginning of high season. Perfect location in hip area of downtown Huntington. Beautifulmdecor, multi level restaurant and bar, with large upstairs room for private functions Service was incredibly efficient with 35 guests. Salads fresh, house had light and savory balsamic vinnagrette. I... More

They have created one of long island's best dining experiences.Approximately 10 years ago, I met Joe Balbo while dining in Babylon. At that time Joe... More

Went last sat night with 6 people. The positive first. The restaurant is pretty and has a great vibe. Live good music was a nice touch too. Also a pretty bar. Now the bad: the service and food were terrible. The menu choices are good but everything was tasteless. The service is also really bad. It's too bad since the... More

This is a greAt restaurant. It is pricey but for Long Island where you don't always find good food. This is a great gem. The octopus is just perfect. The calamari yummy and so is the buffalo mozzarella. The short ribs are tender. The gnocchi are amazing. The desserts are so good you have to ask for the sampling. So... More

We hadn't dined here in awhile because the last time we dined here we were disappointed. This time again same issues. Don't know if it's because we came here on a weekday or for some other reason. Also, just trying to get salt and pepper and cheese from our waiter was an issue. Furthermore, when we had his attention we... More
