Perfect seafood dinner

Tucked in a mostly residential neighborhood, this restaurant does not have the tourist appeal of a Trastevere trattoria but it will hold its own with the best seafood restaurants in the city. The seafood was fresh and delicious, each dish was prepared with care and finesse, and the service was... read more

Went there for dinner with other 2 couples - we live in Rome and we know the area but really wanted to try something new. We felt confident after reading the many excellent reviews but we left utterly disappointed: the menu was extremely poor - very little choice and very common dishes. The wine list too had many names that... More

The food is outstanding! There is no a real menu so you can be sure that everything is fresh! We had a mix of antipasti hot and raw. If you are a lover of row fish and tartare this is your place. the pasta was good well cooked (italian al dente). the service was quick and professional. They have still... More

My husband and I ate at Porto Franco on Sunday evening and the experience was wonderful! The waiter helped us order the perfect meal and took excellent care of us. We were flying out of Rome on Monday and it was the perfect end to a wonderful Italian vacation.

We loved the people at this Restauranf. The food was great and price was fair. If you want a authentic Italian meal before you leave italy that is around the airport this is it.

I had dinner here at Portofranco (with a wonderful woman) and i can confirm all the other comments here on TripAdvisor. The food was excellent, and the stuff was very friendly and helpful, as my wife is not allowed to eat anything, it was no problem to prepare delicous versions only for her. The atmosphere and setting is nice, just... More
