My Italian barber recommended this place as a really good Italian restaurant. I'm glad he did. My wife and I dropped in on a very busy Thursday evening, lucky we had reservations. The prices were slightly higher than I expected but the quality, taste and portion size made the price a bargain. The place is small, service was fast, helpful... More

I have been going to La Porto a Casa for years now and have never been disappointed! The food is always fresh and fantastic! My favourite is the veal fiorentina and as a matter of fact, they remember my order when they see me (I go maybe 4 times a year so that's impressive). The zucchini as a starter is... More

This place is a gem! I have never (ever) had a disappointing meal here. It's where I go when I crave Italian food (eggplant parm is outstanding). The service is friendly and efficient. The food is delicious amd affordable. Vegetarians have choice. Be forewarned that it is an unexpected treasure hidden in a strip mall in Barrhaven. Reservations are strongly... More

Yes, it is in a mini-mall. Doesn't look like much from outside. However, the food is wonderful and the service is first rate. Daily specials. We will be back!

I took my wife to La Porto A Casa for our anniversary. Although we had been here on previous occasions it had been several years since our last visit. I had reserved a table for a Tuesday night and I am glad that I did as the Restaurant was fully booked out. Our waitress was very nice and helpful answering... More

Had dinner there a few weeks ago and as always the food and service was excellent. Best eggplant parmigiana I have ever had, and being Italian I pride myself on knowing my Italian food! It was fresh and seasoned to perfection, perfect amount of sauce and cheese. My only complaint was the temperature in the restaurant itself, so cold. Moved... More

Always love a lunch visit with Ozzie & Caroline! OMG, Ozzie can cook. I've always been very impressed and the food is served piping hot. I had the gnocchi and my buddy had the lasagne. Absolutely incredible, the very best lasagna ever!! Moderately priced but very high quality food!! I consistently recommend this place to my friends and all reports... More

My friend and I dined here last night. To start with our waitress kept calling us Dear. A bad start. The White House wine is good. My friend ordered veal parm with no extra sauce and Alfredo pasta. She got tough chicken parm. I ordered veal piccata which came floating in sauce. The waitress was told about the mistake and... More

We've reviewed La Porto A Casa previously, but not for a while. It continues to offer the same quality of homemade Italian food. I love the spicy salsiccia calabrese and my husband loves the veal gorgonzola. Friendly, busy, casual, reliable. Good washrooms (are always important). Good, free parking. You must make reservations for supper, any night of the week. On... More
