A very nice meal

A nice little spot for a tasty meal. The service is good and the food well prepared. It's a small restaurant so expect to be close to your neighbors. We will return to this neighborhood spot.

Excellent food, drink and a "Cheers like" atmosphere. Staff is attentive and music on Wednesday and Thursday nights creates a pleasant experience.

Very disappointed in the pizza. On two occasions I tried the pizza and both times sent it back. Curst was totally black and charred. Not my idea of "brick oven"

We went to this restaurant because of the raving reviews. The service was good but the food and drink had a lot to be desired. $10 for a glass of wine that was maybe a 3 oz. pour. Truffle fries were so greasy we could not eat them. We told the server and he said nothing except to take the... More

You need to taste the exceptional meatball appetizer it is mouth- watering. If you are lucky enough to be served by Chantell you will know great service too! The pizza is the best in the area. Overall a 4 plus + rated restaurant, missed 5 stars, only because the menu is limited. That said, the unique dishes offered are almost... More

Came for romantic dinner for two after hearing great reviews. Outside of parking being a little difficult it was worth the visit and we are planning many return trips. The service was very good, Tracey gave us every good service. We had the Arrosticini and the Zuppe for appetizers. The Zuppe was some of the best mushroom soup I've had.... More

We have lived in the area for many years and went to La Porta for the first time last night. What a great hidden gem. The service was excellent and the food was outstanding. We highly recommend the mushroom soup and antipasta platter - but honestly everything was delicious.

Ordered the mussels red, spicy...a couple never did open, it happens...to many capers for my liking, especially since I wasn't expecting any... Was asked about getting more bread...didn't like the bread, kind of hard and cold. Ordered the short rib, cannalloni. Not hot and didn't care for the texture of the filling, seriously doubt they wasted good money on short... More

We love to run to this very eclectic restaurant for a quick bite. The food is good, and creative. The staff is pleasant. The pizza's are good. Sometimes the house salad has too much lemon in the dressing. The lasagna is always a favorite. Out of the 7 times we visited over the last year I was only upset once... More
