Came for lunch. Waited over 15 minutes after being sat to get a hello and place a drink order. Salad came out fairly quickly. However no plates or silverware to put our salad on. Took over an hour for our bar pie to come out. Service was horrific. Wouldn't recommend coming here.

I have been here a few times and the place is always hopping. With this being said; service tends to be bit spotty. Two of the orders arrived together while my daughters "Pomodoro" arrived later on. The "Pomodoro" (spaghetti) and the "Lasagna" were non memorable and the meatballs ($9) were OK. The star of the show is the pizza, very... More

Had been here before, on a Saturday night, wanted nothing to do with it ever again. This time I was with family and decided to give it a try on a Wednesday night. What a lovely surprise. The communal tables are really not my thing when it is busy, but for a Wednesday night it was fine. Food is awesome.... More

Everything is good. Average. It's packed in the summer - one block off the beach. Communal seating. Be prepared for crowds and loud and distracted but effortful service. Pricier drinks and food but you won't be disappointed with quality ingredients. Its got an area for fidgety kids to play in outside, as well as casual outdoor and interior open air... More

Everything we ordered was delicious! The octopus salad was cooked to perfection! I had the carbonara pizza, it was perfect!! For dessert I had the affugato, which was as good as the affugato I had in Italy!

is it an outdoor patio bar in the summer? Is it a dance club? Is it a fine Italian pizzeria? Yes all of the above.

My friend had their rehersal dinner at Porta over the weekend. It was family style & in one of the side private rooms. We had our own bartenders/servers. The food was so good. They even package up some extras for us to take back to the hotel. Nice & laid back.

I intepreted the item I was about to order to be a pizza, and the waitress informed me it is more of a calzone. That's not a big deal for me, so I ordered it and was not disappointed. Don't be a dope and skip dessert. Get the chocolate gelato.
