We have been coming here since 2013-each time we are in the area and visit our son we always go here for dinner. This is real Italian food. Everything is always amazing. Staff is always friendly and accommodating

It's been quite awhile since I've had the pleasure of dining at Loporto's Restaurant in Troy and boy have I missed it. I had the chicken Milanese and my Mother had the Veal Guiseppe both dishes were phenominal. I called talk all day about how fabulous their bread dipping oil too. I cannot wait to go back.

This place is Troy! If you haven't been here and you live in Troy. What are you doing with your life. Get it together people. Place is authentic and delicious. The Guinies outside will tell you the same. Eat up!

Not being offensive but it looks like a hole in the wall. Went for lunch. Bread seems homemade. Everything was ultra fresh. Lunch meeting so didn't look at wine list, but they do have a full bar. Food was great! Would love to try them for dinner.

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,...

The Best Western we were staying in recommend Lo Porto. Telling us the servings were large. The servings were large and the taste excellent. Great service as well.
