I am a frequent visitor to il Porto and have been going here for years. I love the friendly staff who are all cordial to me and whomever I may bring in with me. I love the minestrone soup and bread here. The soup is like something grandma would make. I also always enjoy their pizzas. A safe bet if... More

First I'll preface with the fact we were with a group on a very crowded evening. The food was good, I can recommend the Alfredo Chicken, with Cannolli for desert but there were a few issues. First, you are one large space and its very noisy. While the prices are reasonable, the service was efficient but not engaging at all.... More

Wonderful food & great service make this a really "must visit" spot. I cleared my plate, not an every day event for me. Friendly atmosphere made for a very enjoyable evening.

My husband and I came here last night for dinner. The atmosphere is nice but our waiter became less and less attentive when he realized that we were only going to order entrees. The bread that comes out is good, I've always loved dipping bread in olive oil and cheese. I ordered the eggplant parmesan and my husband ordered chicken... More

Lovely fresh food with spectacular flavours. I had the pork chops and they were delicious. My sister had seafood and ate every morsel, very rare for her. The staff were attentive and friendly. Atmosphere is lively, with a nice decor.

Our meal at Il Porto was very good, and the service was outstanding. A few of the dishes (chicken pizzaiola, veal pizzaiola) were under seasoned but the carbonara and shrimp and scallop pasta were very good. Bread and pasta seemed to be made in house and were delicious. Desserts (tiramisu, chocolate mousse cake, mango mousse cake) were also very good,... More

We tried this restaurant for the first time and were not disappointed. We were greeted and seated immediately. The complimentary bread was very good. We had the fried zucchini appetizer; enough for 2-3 to share. Thinner than I am use to; more like zucchini chips; but very good. I had the cheese ravioli and my husband had the fettuccine Alfredo...

This is our go to restaurant for special occasions, or just for some GREAT white pizza and a glass of wine. We have been going to Il Porto for years, and we have never been disappointed. The staff and service are great, the food is amazing, from appetizers to dessert. Their marinara is wonderful, eggplant Parmesan incredible, veal dishes perfect.... More
