“Try the steak au poivre!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

My husband is a big fan of steak au poivre and LoPorto's has the best! The filet mignon is 'like butter' and the portion would feed me well for several meals. Yummy pasta dishes and antipasta as well.

Funky 50's atmosphere, fabulous food! The best spaghetti with sausage I have ever eaten! Ditto for the tortellini! Excellent waitstaff! Don't miss it!

“1 of the best Italian restaurants in the Capital Region”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

LoPorto is one of two of my favorite Italian restaurants in the area. I cannot personally vouch for anything on the menu other than the Chicken Milanese because it is what I ordered the first time I dined there twenty years ago, and I still order it every time I go because it is just that good. Italian restaurants usually have their own take on Milanese but @ LoPorto it is breaded with panko and fried super crispy and yet remains light and fork tender. They place it on mashed potatoes with garlicky vegetables and you also get a side of pasta with their delicious marinara. Service is always excellent and the prices reasonable for the quality & amount of food you get.

“Never disappoints”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Lo Porto's is an old school, established gem of an establishment which serves delicious Italian food in downtown Troy. Their staff is super friendly and knowledgeble. But, what keeps me going back? Their chicken parm! Never have I had a chicken parm to compare it to. Crispy on the outside but not over cooked. The sauce is great and the pasta is always perfectly done. Nice sized portions for the amount charged. I always bring home half in a doggie bag and it's always good the next day. Make it a stop on your visit to Troy and you won't be disappointed.

“My favorite in The Capital District”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

2 years ago we found this by chance. Its now my favorite place to dine in the capital region. Prices quality and quantity is excellent. Looks a little ruff on the outside but you'll experience a great evening out. I have brought many friends here and they all agree. Last night are waitress Tammy was wonderful too.
