While dinner is amazing, this is the perfect girl's lunch venue! The fresh fruit martinis are amazing and white bean hummus is a must! Be sure to make a reservation for dinner as it fills up. The dishes are not too heavy and perfectly portioned. One of my favorite restaurants in my home town and stacks up well against any... More

Excellent homemade pasta, locally sourced ingredients. Great wine list and the Smart Cocktail is one of my favorites. The service is always on point. Only complaint is that it gets very noisy, making it hard to hold a conversation.

Went with my family. Our waiter was nice and personable. We ordered the caprese, pate, and white bean and artichoke for the antipasto. The pâté was good. The caprese was the best of the three though. I had the short ribs. Very good. My honey had the special, a halibut dish with mussels. He prefers his fish a little on... More

Perfect night with my husband! We absolutely loved everything we ate. Beautiful dining room, excellent service, and most importantly- delicious food! Pretty pricey but absolutely worth it. Great place to get dressed up and have a romantic evening or treat family members or friends to something special. My husband's favorite was the mushroom risotto, and mine was the shrimp tagliatelle.... More

We live in Madisonville but pass here every Sunday to and from Christ Church. It's not open on Sunday though and we don't go to Covington often except Sunday. Friends from Baton Rouge invited us there Saturday and it was wonderful. Great service, wonderful ambience and tremendous food. One of Northshores best restaurants.

As much as I loved Ox Lot 9 (I would still give them 5 stars), Del Porto is a notch above - for an unrushed, elegant and multi-course dining experience. My server Ray, offer suggestion after suggestion including a fine wine pairing. The tuna Crudo was OUTSTANDING with a chili-mint vinaigrette that offered flavors I had never experienced. Some local... More

Del Porto Is a quaint corner restaurant in downtown Covington. We like sitting at the bar for appetizers and martinis and love their dinner specials. Pork belly appetizer is my all time favorite and vegetable lasagna entree (when the have it) is absolutely delicious. Peach, pear, grapefruit martinis are excellent. Bartenders are attentive and very friendly. Love this place! Call... More

Best Italian food in Covington. The atmosphere is wonderful. The specialty martinis are to die for. I have never had a bad meal here.
