I've enjoyed dinner at the Il Porto in Frederick, Maryland and it was just excellent, the food, the service and the drinks. I must say the same thing about their Gaithersburg location! Everything we ordered was well prepared, with excellent service in a wonderful atmosphere.

Outside seating in the summer is most pleasurable and rivals any Parisian sidewalk cafe, and yes I have been to the nicest in Montparnasse, in Paris, in la belle France! All of the "by the glass" house wine selections are both dependable and thoroughly enjoyable....More
