Interesting Evening!!

Had not been to Porto Vivo in about 2 years. We had great meals from the "restaurant week menu" although after adding all the extra charges for certain items, the price was up there!? House wines were great and service was terrific. My only issue is a small one. I am not a big fan of the ipad... read more

Porto Vivo restaurant is one of long island's best kept secrets! Overseen by Joe Balbo, a young creative and exceptional chef. My wife and I have had the pleasure of following Joe, as he grew from a young upcoming executive chef to his current status as one of long island's best! Porto Vivo restaurant in Huntington, is an exquisite jewel... More

I don't know if was the magic of Christmas but we went to Porto Vivo on Christmas Eve for dinner and right from the start it was just a pleasant evening. The valet was just a really nice guy, great greeting. Once inside we were greeting by a very nice hostess who showed us to our table. Once at the... More

I had visited Porto Vino on a Thursday night so I could listen to the band in the bar area. The band was "Been there, Done that" and they were fabulous. Great 70's lounge music in a good bar environment of 40+ age people. The cocktails were great and the pricing excellent. They did have a few drink specials offered... More

My husband and I love to dine at Porto Vivo! It is slightly more expensive than your average restaurant so we usually save it for special occasions but it is so good I think we may need to visit more often! We went for restaurant week this time which was a very good value. We also went on a Wednesday... More

Wonderful place, my husband and I go at least once a week, sit in the beautiful bar area and enjoy pasta and half priced glasses of wonderful chardonnay during happy hour. Nick and Chris, the bartenders are truly the best out there, so attentive and helpful. They make the experience so enjoyable. Cannot recommend a better place! Love it...

Met friends here for Sunday night dinner to experience their specials. It was about a year ago when we last visited on a Sunday for either the lobster or steak special. We were seated promptly with our friends and the room was full of people enjoying lobster. We were a table of 4. Our server was good but kind of... More

We Love a restaurant to go for live music. We ate earlier in Huntington and walked over to Porto Vivo. They always have great live bands and a lively crowd. We saw on Friday, Been There Done That. They were excellent. Ordered wine and dessert and enjoyed the music. Finished with a double espresso and cappuccino... Doesn't get better than... 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
