We sat down on a fairly busy Wednesday night almost immediately without a reservation (good idea to make a reservation though). I had a tasty, slightly spicy Bucatini alla Amitricana, with pancetta-- delicious! Dad had the Porchetta sandwich with Broccoli Rabe and Mom had the Ravioli. Both of those dished were tasty as well. It is nice when people share!... More

Dined there with friends and three of the four of us had wonderful meals. We started with the Sporky ("dirty" white) pizza as an appetizer and it was outstanding. I had the gnocchi, which is usually a risky choice, but their's was wonderful. Served with fresh crab meat, the pasta was light and delicious in a subtle cream sauce. Our... More

This place was recommended to us by our innkeepers because of how close it was to where we were staying. The pizza here was great, we went the first night and managed to grab 2 seats at the bar (it was PACKED if you didn't have a reservation). We were right next to the chefs at the pizza oven. I...

Been here a few times. Mostly had pizza and drinks at the bar. Went back in Sept and they had opened an outdoor dining patio. Dinner was good, server put on heaters and it was a lovely night dining alfresco. I would go back.

My husband and I went for dinner on a Saturday night. We didn't have reservations but we're still seated quickly. Our waitress was amazing. The food left a lot to be desired. We had the Tuscan fries which we enjoyed. I had the lasagna and thought it was salty. My husband had a signature pizza with bacon and peppers. It... More

Our innkeepers recommended this restaurant. Being from NY we weren't expecting amazing Italian food in the middle of nowhere in PA but we were amazed. So good we went back the next night. Lasagna was incredible.

We tried La Porta on a whim after reading reviews online. I'm a fan of wood grilled pizza, and La Porta does not disappoint. We ordered the kid's plain pizza and the dinner sized sausage and rosemary pizza. Both pizzas were excellent, with a crispy, flavorful thin crust and perfectly melted cheese. The ingredients were fresh and high quality. La... More

This is an old building catering to a large bar clientele. They also have a room with several tables. In good weather, there is outdoor seating. They serve great brick-oven personal speciality pizzas along with many other items and specials of the day. They are a little pricey but very good. Great late night.

Everything about this tiny gem is wonderful! Atmosphere, service and, oh my, the food! I love it when there are so many things on the menu that I have a hard time choosing. Fortunately, I know we will be going back, so I already know what I'm having next time!
