Four of us ladies dropped in on a Tuesday during lunch service. Doesn't look like a gem from outside and the parking lot is very small. All spots were taken so we had to be creative with our parking. That said, it just gets very positive from here on out. The décor is really cute with an Italiana feel of... More

Oozing with charm this little creamery turned biker bar turned upscale dining experience is a gem. I had the asparagus cake with shrimp as an appetizer and that could have been my meal. Their salmon dish on a bed of greens with walnuts, goat cheese and a lovely sauce was delicious. Pistachio cheesecake, nice. Their bread and dipping sauce was... More

Not easy to find for an out-of-towner, but well worth it. This is a great Italian restaurant. If the weather is nice, you can enjoy your meal either on the patio, the main dining room, or the bar area. Our server, Michelle, was excellent. There are choices for everyone, from pizzas and pasta dishes, to main entrees. Many items are... More

Just went for a quick dinner....food was great, service at the bar was great BUT when leaving, one look at the kitchen made me feel sick! The floor was covered in dirty towels and everything looked greasy :( If they're going to have an open kitchen they should try and keep it clean!! Will probably throw out our take-home portions!!

Have been to La Porta both as eat in or take out. Food is awesome...especially love the pizzas! We have done take out for pizza on several occasions - $20 for 2...can't beat that! Favorite pizzas: malfatti, salumi, and salsiccia. A definite recommend.

A family member brought us here after she had an enjoyable experience here. She had drinks and blue point oysters which, evidently, were wonderful. Four of us had dinner here. The atmosphere is lovely, and the staff friendly, attentive and accommodating. Two of us requested the oysters, but they were unavailable. I ordered their fish and chips. The fish was... More

What a find! First visit and we loved everything! Monday night, so not over crowded but steady turn over. The ambiance was lovely with the fireplace in the corner. I had the Salmone. It was one of the best I have ever had. Served with crab, (roasted) brussel sprouts, roasted fingerling potatoes in a lemon tarragon cream....I WILL DREAM ABOUT... More

La Porta is the little restaurant with big ideas. The owners did a fantastic job renovating the old Locust Crest Tavern into a neat, clean, attractive restaurant. This was our second visit for dinner. Our opinions remain unchanged. The food is delicious! The menu is rather limited. Without the daily specials, there was really not much I would have preferred...

This was a former dive bar. The new owners completely renovated the building and returned much of it to it's original 1800s state. Excellent food and a great bar. The food is much like you might find in Italy.
