“Would return again.”
Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

We dined here twice during our week in Antigua. Once with carry out and once at the restaurant.

Carry out: ate pizza and carbonara. Our husbands brought the dinner back via our golf cart and there was a serious rain squall while they were on the way. The pizza did not travel well and might be better eaten at the restaurant, fresh. The crust was not very tasty and I am a crust lover! The carbonara, made in the traditional way, and to order when they arrived was as good as any my husband has had even in Italy. Even after the rain storm.

When we arrived for dine- in service, we had the meat tray which was lovely including salami, Gorgonzola, prosciutto and crostini. Nice balance and serving size for a party of four.

Our dinner experience consisted of chicken Parmesan and chicken al a romana. The Panko crust on the Parmesan was amazingly crisp and light. The romana was stuffed and with a lovely sauce too we were very happy with the entire meal. Busy night, slow service but will definitely return next time.

“new ownership fresh ideas”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

Had a great dinner here last Monday. The new French owners are making big improvements. Fresh Wahoo washed down with a fresh glass of rose, while watching Itchy Feet playing on the stage.

“A true gem! Highly recommend this restaurant.”
Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

What a little gem! We spent a week in Antigua and came to this restaurant 3 times. Had we discovered it sooner, we would have been there every night :). Stephanie the hostess is so very friendly and has lot's great tips about the island. We highly recommend their seafood pizza. Thursday night is all you can eat pasta and listen to live music. This restaurant is located right next to the water. While sipping wine we enjoyed beautiful Antigan sunsets and watched fish swim by.

“Excellent food”

Had a superb meal last night at Al Porto. My wife had a truly delicious chicken parmigiano and my veal marsala was 'to die for'.

“Is only average ...”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

Visited Al Porto again ... Last visited 6 months ago on last trip.

It was 2 for 1 pizza night ... So we tried the Parma ham pizza and the Bianca pizza.

Parma was not great ... Covered in very peppery rocket... Bianca was strange .. Neither were great.

Atmosphere was ruined by children running all around the restaurant .. Sure ignorant parents is not particularly Al Potro's fault ... But atmosphere is generally not great.

Just nothing special or worth the visit ...was just an average. Meal.
