Recommended by the innkeeper...called "rustic". A little loud in the bar, but outside garden nice. Half pizza/half stromboli delicious. My boyfriend enjoyed his burger. Flourless chocolate cake amazing!!! Nice small place that offers valet parking if needed. Friendly crowd compared to more upscale spots! Will be back for some of the other specialties!

We ate there again last night and had the special fish dinner option and the pork pizza special! One of our best meals ever! In my opinion this is one of the best restaurants in the Philadelphia area and should be on the list of top 10 of all Philly restaurants! From their dinner specials to all types of pizza... More

My third time to La Porta wasn't the charm.The restaurant is easy to find, right off of Rt. 352, in Gradyville, not Media, PA, and the food is only just decent, okay. Really after three visit's, I go back for one thing ...the Tuscan Fries. Last night I tried the fish special (Branzino) and was told it would be mouth... More

This is the hidden gem in Delaware County, PA ! I am reluctantly writing this review in fear that people will read it and flock to this place. Saying this reminds me that reservations are a must because they are small and fill up quickly. The atmosphere is old Italy and rustic. There's an outdoor dining area that's just as... More

La Porta is one of the best restaurants in Media, and you don't even have to face the terrible parking of in-town Media! Located off of 352 on a quiet stretch of the road, it's an unassuming spot. Free valet parking is a nice plus since the lot can fill up quickly. The food is great. Over the past couple... More

I've been here a handful of times and have only gotten take out. The pizza is good and the Tuscan fries are a must try! So unique and delicious. I docked one star because every time I order out its never ready when I get there and always end up having to wait anywhere from 10-15 minutes. I'd prefer them... More

Great food in the middle of nowhere. Cozy but noisy with live music usually country vocals and guitar. Haven't had a bad meal yet. We keep coming back.

Just enjoyed a lovely dinner of salmon with a great shared flourless chocolate torte. We started with a shared pizza for the table as an appetizer and the brick oven pizza did not disappoint. We will be back.
