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!

We stopped in on our way home after a hike in the woods and some local exploring. The last time I had been here, the place was quite different and I wouldn't have considered it had it not been for the online reviews. We sure are glad we checked it out! We ordered two of the happy hour food specials... More

Went to La Porta with my two sons and my wife for Sunday lunch -- my older son is very picky about his pizza and he said his Farmer's pizza (sans egg and brussel sprouts) was his new favorite. My La Porta eggs benedict version, with sausage, was delicious. My wife's and younger son's dishes were also excellent. And the... More

I have been to La Porta many times now, to dine in and take out. The pizza is incredible. If you're a lover of true wood fired brick oven pizza, this is the place.
