We have live here for 15 years and never get tired of Del Porto, always fresh and always on top of their game. If you don't mind a little noise with all the patrons talking about their great dishes and enjoying the wine selection, you will love it. Even the chicken dish is awesome!

Very special place with interesting food choices. Only had one meal that was steak that was not up to par. All else is super wonderful. Their menu is always special.

We were a large group, eleven, and were seated in a small room with a few other tables. It was perfect. Even with a few other diners around we felt like we were in an intimate setting with the privacy to be ourselves. The service was impeccable. We never felt rushed and the staff was very professional and knowledgeable about... More

I hadn't been to the new location because of a bad experience at the old location. It was too pricey in my opinion to have plastic chairs and sidewalk seating in such unattractive place w ok food. Things are vastly different at the new place. Still pricey but the food quality, service and ambiance are much improved. They still have... More

I have been a frequent visitor to this wonderful place. It is now housed in what was once Hebert's Drug Store. A nice bar. a large dining area and a private dining area. That said, it's the food here that is the thing. I must say WOW! I haven't tasted such delicious antepasta since I was in Florence or Rome.... More

We ate our fill at Del Porto, from the fabulous mozzarella appetizer I'm still dreaming about to our entrees to the elegant dessert of strawberries and biscotti. The atmosphere is warm and casual and a regular gathering spot for locals. Highly recommended.

Vibrant, fun, always the center of what is going on and the food is consistently great! Great place for celebration back in the wine room, or a casual girl's lunch, business lunch and happy hour is also good for business or friends. The Friti Misti is always good and the Tuna Crudo is my favorite!! Drinks are consistently good and... More

Surprisingly good Italian food on the north shore. The room was bustling with full tables and a buzzing atmosphere. Very glad that we gave it a shot; we will definitely be back.

There are a few wait staff members here that are down right rude and the last two times we ate here our food took 45 minutes. We were also asked to leave one time after spending lots of $$$$$ with our party of eight because they needed our table for the next reservation. Food is good but bar crowd is... More
