We enjoyed some great pizza at Porta. The atmosphere was very cool and we had great service during our visit. They make their own mozzarella and ricotta, and the wood fired ovens were designed in Italy for them specifically. Pretty neat!

We've been before and the food is basically good. The service we had tonight was atrocious and our waitress just didn't care. We repeatedly asked her to help us but she did not and gave stupid answers. To magnify the unacceptable behavior, because we were a party of 8, a 20% tip was added to the bill.

Ports is the portal to great times in magnificent Asbury Park. A stunning establishment that has not only met but exceeded the lore and standard of the 1960's legendary ' Student Prince' that held court at this location.
The restaurant is a balanced choreography of food , spirit and place. The indoor taverna is like a wine cave illuminated by starlight twinkle. Communal tables entreat visitors to glorious fresh pasta , salads, pizza and amazing drinks and conviviality. The garden is a sea embraced court with umbrellas , outdoor bar and boccie. Music is offered outside and moved inside when the across the street Stone Pony has a 'free' concert.

During the day, this is a bustling restaurant, noisy, with constant movement from the staff and people heading in, out and around. In the evening, it becomes more of a club. Our visit was during the day with a group of six. Service is attentive, but delivery is often uneven, common as the food is prepared to order, with piping hot pizzas delivered promptly as they exit the pizza ovens. Be prepared to eat at picnic tables shared by other guests. House water is filtered with no bottled options, so bring your own if you are a bit concerned....Don't miss out on the delicious, generous portions of salad, the unusual pizza combinations, and the nutella pizza dessert!

This restaurant and bar has a chill vibe, with relaxed atmosphere. They serve great pizza, any have a full bar. You must try nutella pizza for a sweet treat. Great dancing and dj on weekends too.
