Rome, Venice, Florence an d Naples have nothing on Lo Porto Ristorante Caffe. Pasta like you dream of and ambiance that reminds one of Italy. Chianti and Sambuca complement every meal.

I love this little place. It's vibe reminds me of an old world Italian restaurant. You'll often see the owner, Michael, chatting with the regulars, and making sure you're happy with everything. Every entree I've ever had has been delicious- sea food, veal, steak- and the servings are amazingly generous. The vegetables and the sides are always cooked perfectly. I... More

Went to Lo Portos to celebrate a good friends birthday. The service was great. Our food was outstanding. Three of us had the pasta with vodka sauce with shrimp. It was outstanding and we all had lunch for the next day. Great place to celebrate or have an outstanding Italian meal.

Until this last visit to Troy's Lo Porto Restaurant we were convinced it was the best Italian restaurant in the Capital District of New York. However, our last experience has made us go away with mixed feelings. No criticism of the entree I chose. My very generous portion of Veal Cacciatore was delicious and the doggie bag I took home,...

A friend gave us a gift card and spouse and I had a feast! Loved it all - good wine menu...good salad...excellent entrees and enough left over for two meals for two afterwards! It's everything an old-fashioned Italian eatery should be.

This place was amazing. It looks like an outdated little hole in the wall from the street but it goes so far back and up that it's actually pretty big. It's definitely family run and you can really feel how dedicated to it they are. The food rivals anything from little Italy or the north end. It's a little pricey... More
