It was like entering an Italian in Italy. Big smile and guided to my table with white table clothes, well dressed and inviting.
Got into their recommendations, scallops gratiné as starter and rockfish with crabmeat as entree, together with red Riffino, Chianti Classico Riserva 2007. Not bad at all. Enjoyed it much, the final touch, a strong expresso.
Compared to Italy, missed the "pousse-cafe" offered.
Will certainly return and a recommendation in the neighbourhood if looking for a good diner with a nice surrounding.

Il Porto has been a great "go to" place for years. It keeps getting better rather than resting on its' reputation. Favorites are the white pizza with fontina and garlic, eggplant parmesan, and spagetti bolognese. Fish is fresh and not over sauced.
Must be good, because if you're not there by 6:30, you can expect to wait a bit.

I ordered takeout and the food was very good. Had the King crab and shrimp with red sauce. Very tasty! Only wish they had cracked open the king crab but was worth the work I put in. Also ordered the chocolate mousse cake which was also very good. When I want Italian, I will definitely come back.

Try the crustless pizza. Amazing!

Atmosphere nicer than you'd expect for a strip mall.

We have also tried it "to go". Very good!
