perfect ambience and service, food stellar or not so much, depending on what you order

La Porta is housed within what appears to be a beautiful old farm house, with nice stone walls, decor, soft lighting, and with pleasant garden seating outside. Service could not be better- it is quick and highly professional. With regard to food quality, we have been there twice with two very... read 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.

Located on trafficy rte 352, not near anyplace in particular, this former community bar has been transformed into a attractive dining destination. While parking is a serious problem, they solved it with a free parking service. The atmosphere is authentic with old wooden beam roofs and log siding; very tasty to set the theme. The wait staff is super attentive... More

At the recommendation of our hotel, my husband and I tried La Porta for dinner on a Monday night. Since we were not familiar with the area, our impression was that the restaurant was kind of in the middle of nowhere, but close to our B&B. We were surprised when we arrived and the parking lot was totally full! After... More

Been here a couple times over 2 years. Each time the food is good. Obviously as noted in other reviews the pizza is quite tasty and worth the visit for that alone. The pizzas vary about 10-12 inches and could be split if you wanted, the menu won't tell you the size, but the ingredient selection is varies and is... More

Showed up without a reservation but within minutes we were seated and treated to a very pleasing meal and excellent wine. There was live music and valet parking. What more could you ask for!

Attractive place off the beaten path. Nice bar, the food is great, outdoor dining. Friendly staff. Been here a bunch of times. Free valet parking - the parking lot is small. My only criticism concerns the music choices. Often they play heavy metal music or rock--not my choice while trying to have a conversation with my date, or while dining.... More
