There are alot of very good and some very fine restaurants in Huntington NY. We wanted to try a restaurant we never dined in before so we picked PORTO VIVO. PORTO VIVO has a nice trendy decor with an appetizing menu. But I'm sorry to say it ends there. Our waiter presented our water choice as flat or bubbly so... More

There is no chef here. There is barely a menu. And there is no service. A trifecta of awful. A very limited menu with several items unavailable - exotic things like salmon and eggplant . Cavatelli bolgnese was more of a soup - a sauce that was canned tomatoes not even cooked down and a watery broth with no depth... More

This past Saturday night i had the fine pleasure of dining with the Blooms and the Kla-Pows. After hearing their suggestions for dinner i settled on Porto Vivo in Huntington owned by Joy Mangano. Two previous times I was there and on both occasions I had a terrible experience. They wanted to go so I agreed. I have to start... More

I was part of a group of two couples that went to Porto Vivo for a Saturday Night dinner. We started with two appetizers. The flatbread pizza was good, however the Caesar salad we ordered for the table never arrived. After waiting and waiting we hailed someone other than our waiter and asked for the salad. When it did arrive... More

Her salad... More

Usually when dining in Huntington you need a reservation for most restaurants- we were lucky. We called in and there was a cancellation. When we drove up we were lucky too because they have Valet service. Upon walking in- I noticed several parties taking place. We were seated upstairs, which was quite comfortable. We had several waiters serving us. Each... More

I don't know if was the magic of Christmas but we went to Porto Vivo on Christmas Eve for dinner and right from the start it was just a pleasant evening. The valet was just a really nice guy, great greeting. Once inside we were greeting by a very nice hostess who showed us to our table. Once at the... More

I had visited Porto Vino on a Thursday night so I could listen to the band in the bar area. The band was "Been there, Done that" and they were fabulous. Great 70's lounge music in a good bar environment of 40+ age people. The cocktails were great and the pricing excellent. They did have a few drink specials offered... More
