Very good food, but location is tough to get in and out of off of Rt 352. Also, it is a little pricey. We had a cheese plate, a pizza and some calamari, all very good, but not worth what we paid at all. the pizza is delicious.

Went there and sat on their new outdoor patio. Great pizzas, and even better service. It started to rain and our server shuffled us inside to a table just in time for our pizzas to arrive. She even apologized for the rain. Great spot! Enjoy!!

Recommended by a friend and not disappointed. Charming interior and pretty outdoor patio for outdoor dining. Too humid to enjoy outside but had a good experience indoors. There with my sister, daughter and friend. All liked their dinners of cannelloni, orecchiette and lasagna. Mushroom soup was awesome. Desert really good. All looking forward to returning.

We have not been here recently, but we invited some friends to join us and the food was terrific as we had remembered it. Fresh, flavorful, and hearty portions as well as a nice wine list to complement dinner. Plus it is not overpriced which is very much appreciated.

This was our 3rd visit in a few months. We loved our dinners and especially liked our server, Tracey. Their nightly specials are always appealing. My husband had the 8 oz NY Strip & I had the grilled salmon on a wonderful salad (on-the-menu "salmone insulata"). The only drawback was the noise level, but our timing was great and several... More

Cute little local place with charm. We got 3 different entrees 2 out of 3 were good. Gnocchi had little too much lemon for me. Salad was great. Entrees were not served with bread. A small thing but disappointing.

La Porta's white stucco walls, exposed wooden beams and outdoor patio reminded us of dining in Europe. We faced a fireplace that had small shelves built into the structure and everywhere we looked we found pottery, birdhouses and doors. We spent a lot of time trying to figure out where the doors might have been before they were installed here.The... More

We watched the World Cup in the bar with the friendly bartender, and had chopped antipasto that was fresh and tasty. Then we headed out to the patio for dinner. We shared pasta with mushrooms and the brick oven pizza/Stromboli - both very good. Then we strolled through the large park across the street.

This is an excellent casual Italian restaurant. Some of the finest wood fired pizza I have ever eaten. The pastas are also very good. This is a bit of a drive for us, but definitely worth it. We have been able to walk in with just two of us but it is a risk as most tables are full even... More

Recently spent a very pleasant afternoon lunch on the gorgeous outdoor patio at La Porta. This was my third visit and all have been consistently fantastic! They absolutely have the most delicious authentic Italian Pizza I have had since in Italy! My father also was delighted with the omelette of the day. This is such a charming place for lunch!... More
