Took a family of 9 here aged 8-50. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Great Italian based comfort food with a few twists. The Italian French fries smothered in balsamic vinegar, eggplant and peppers are unique and memorable. The gnocchi are authentic. The pizzas are a large portion and brick oven goodness. Wine list is medium sized with bottles of red available... More

Nice atmosphere but quickly lost this good first impression. Basically because the dinning experience was ruined by very poor food preparation and mediocre service. The Crab cakes were not fully heated,cold inside and the eggplant parm was undercooked very rubbery texture, couldn't cut it with my knife. It tasted very much like a Oncor frozen dinner that was not fully... More

This cute little local restaurant is the perfect place for a nice, tasty, not too pricey meal. I have been for both lunch and dinner and wasn't disappointed in either. My favorite, by far, was their homemade pizza- just the right char on the crust, a sauce that's light yet flavorful and really fresh toppings. For dinner, we had a... More

Excellent prix fixe brunch, including 3 courses and all you can drink Bloody's and mimosas. Everything was cooked perfectly and all 6 of our party were very pleased. La Porta has a great ambiance, and outside seating with heat lamps as well. We would definitely go back there!

The last two times I've been here the food has been mediocre at best. The food used to be amazing. The first time I thought it was a fluke, now I don't think I'll be going back. So disappointed.

Food was really good, service was great, nice ambiance and a good selection of wine/beer. The bar is on the small side so if you want to go for a drink while you wait to be seated go early, especially on a Friday night.

La Porta is one of my favorite places to go! The food is unique (and a changing menu) with great flavor combinations. I was there recently for a girl's night out. We reserved the table in the bar area and had great service from the bartenders. There was music that night (Wednesday night) and he really knew how to play... More

This is a small but cozy place. It can get a bit loud so I would not recommend for people that want to have a private conversation. We always request Tracey, she is by far, given us the best service and always makes us feel welcome and comfortable. The food is unique and delicious.

Thank Mary R
