I stopped here on a whim for supper! Service was good and quick. The food was also yummy! The actual restaurant itself was interesting, lots of cool antiques and nick nacks on the walls

Il Porto is a very small restaurant, but it is great in taste and friendly staff. We had the chowder, which was very good, and finished with some very nice desert (white choclate bread pudding?). Very cosy place and great service !

This unassuming little gem was the highlight of our 4 week tour of NB, NS and PEI. Food was delicious, portions generous, and service perfect. Il Porto puts many places claiming greatness, to shame.

I was so impressed that the owner took the time to go over the menu as I have allergies. She was so helpful and answered all my questions. I decided on Veggie Pizza, the crust was thin and crisp, exactly how I love it. The...More
