I love it here! We have been here a few times and the atmosphere is always awesome. Outdoor and indoor seating on a first come, first serve basis. The last time we were fortunate enough to get the outdoor table by the stage where there was a great band. The food is awesome!! The pizza is my favorite but everything... More

Porta is a great unique experience, busy, food is good and has energy. It turns into a club some nights and is more for the younger crowd. But i do like the openess and layout of the bars.

Came here and waited awhile to eat but the pizza is always good. Ordered the margarita pizza, 14 1/2 (w spicy suprasatta) and a meatball pizza. Ordered the pomadoro pasta also which the sauce was really fresh. Really hot inside though FYI.

This is a favorite place to eat at in Asbury Park. The pizza is amazing, the Roasted Long Hots are just that - a pepper that is long, roasted to perfection and hot to the taste! They have indoor and outdoor seating, a bar and a fun atmosphere to enjoy your food in. Never had a problem with service or... More

Got greeted on a Tuesday night by a wonderful friendly hostess (Kaitlin, I think). Sat down, had a nice Guinness poured to perfection, a delicious bar pie. My wife enjoyed a very tasty pasta dish. Very reasonably priced and good atmosphere.

All loved it. Best value of any restaurant we tried. Need TV and bar , bang a right and head to the back. Quieter and not family style tables Accommodating service, kids had gone to patio to seek table for 8, no luck. Walkable to Asbury hotel. Many recommended it and the bar clientele was friendly and wants to share... More

Porta Restaurant and Bar across from the Stone Pony in Asbury Park is a Superb venue for pizza. And Drinks. A nice selection is offered on their menu along with appetizers. Parking however can be a problem as its proximity to the Stone Pony. So come early to claim Your spot on the street.

I've eaten at the bar, at a table and outside as well, whatever is to your liking all were enjoyable. I prefer the outside. i had the meatball pizza and the 14 1/2 pizza, both... More

There were 4 in our party. We shared the olives & 2 small rice balls. The rice balls were just ok. I had the cacio & Pepe (pepper and cheese pasta) which was very good. 2 had the bootzin, which wasn't as good as usual per both of them. Another had the garlic & oil pasta which he also said... More
