Wonderful Lasanga and Spaghetti carbonara

Great food. Great service. Authentic Italian. Four of us had the Lasagna (mmm.mmm.mmm.) and one had the spaghetti carbonara, also mmm.mmm.mmm. Inside and café dining outside. Wait staff was attentive.

Most likely, you will see Mr. LoPorto during your visit... Excellent food, large portions. Request a table near the windows or at least in the front section. The upstairs back section is not as enjoyable.

I am from New York. I traveled to Italy many times. I know my Italian food. This restaurant in Troy serves excellent Italian food. Attractive setting with nice bar. Kind of what you would you like for a neighborhood hung out. Attentive and efficient service. I had the veal Milanese. It came in a light olive oil/garlic sauce that was... More

LoPorto's is a hidden gem in Troy. The outside is unassuming, a small dark door on 4th street. Inside is an intimate bistro and bar of the old-school Italian style. Michael LoPorto himself is often there and always ready with a welcoming word (in either English or Italian). The food, in the best Sicilian tradition is superb - hot and... More

This restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside but once you walk through the door it brings you back in time to what an authentic, old-style Italian restaurant looked like. The wooden bar is large and gorgeous. The wait staff is friendly and accommodating. The owner, Mike, spends his time cooking the food and occasionally comes out to greet... More

The food was excellent. The location is quaint. The atmosphere is definitely Italian. But again the food was excellent. Service was also very good. Enjoyed!

Visited an old high school buddy who told me to meet him at here. I drove by it at first since it has an unassuming fascia in a sleepy neighborhood. When I entered it was quite different than I expected. This linen tablecloth and napkin restaurant has a lovely dinning room d comfortable tables for bar dining as well. The... More

It certainly was not the first time that we dined at Lo Porto and found it an absolutely satisfying experience. Their pasta sauce is second to none, their veal dishes super and seafood combinations fresh and generous, Their mega portions mean that your taste buds are in for another treat a day or two later. My husband and I went... More

There was a lot of food. The pasta that came with my meal (to my surprise) was very ordinary, linguini with a tomato sauce. The picata sauce on the chicken was unusual and very tasty, but the mashed potatoes and mixed veg were standard. Good for filling up an RPI student!
