    Porto Vivo was a pleasant surprise. The space was contemporary and the food was as well, with some old school favorites, like chicken parmesan, mixed in. We shared a delicious lobster & crispy gnocchi starter and a special burrata to start. The entrees were also terrific including fish and short ribs. We will be back!

    loved my experience at Porto Vivo...Ben, the manager was professional and personable, made sure everything was perfect! We ate at the bar and Shanna couldn't have been a better server! Tony helped us with everything from the menu to the wine...and was very knowledgeable with their wine cellar (which caters to small dinner parties and is absolutely gorgeous!) and was on point with what we wanted. My husband had the Short Rib pappardelle it was crazy delish! I did the tasting but it was way too much food, but tasty as well...Definitely would suggest anyone to check this restaurant out for a wonderful dining experience!

    Nice place. They are super friendly on the phone and during dinner. It was romantic and they nade it very nice for my husbands birthday with my requested corner spot with pillows and a semi circular booth. The specials sounded Delish and we enjoyed the filet surf and turf. They were food. Desert - zeppolies were to die for. We would def go back. In the background at the bar... There was a guy playing guitar and singing which could be heard throughout the restaurant. I was loving this place and we enjoyed our dinner. Great find. Crowd was nice. Overall. Really nice place.

    Frequent this restaurant at least 3+ times a month. Great food, the service has always been just OK. However this last experience while entertaining colleagues we apparently took to long to enjoy our meal. 2.5 hrs after our reservation we were asked to leave because they wanted the table. No apologies just a constant tapping at his watch and a wrap this up speech. NEVER again! Spoke with the management and they said it is what it is. Fail!

    I thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience at Porto Vivo. The service was great; our waiter had a great personality and was very personable. We ordered off the Restaurant Week menu and got to try alot of great dishes. I was impressed with the ipads given out as menus. I would highly recommend your restaurant to anyone looking for a great night out in Huntington village.

    Loved everything about the place but the food. It was visually appealing, loved the ipads as menus and we found a really good wine on their list. The food was not good, the bolognese was comparable to a chef-boy-ar-dee, the bread served was cold and had a stale tinge to it. The fried calamari was good but seriously who messes up fried calamari nothing to be impressed by.

    Dined on a Thursday evening - should have been warned that an event was going on in the restaurant. Raffles were being called, women clapping, speeches. Felt like I was in a school gym. Ordered two pasta entrees - both were terrible. Sauce had overly large chinks of tomato. Ordered the chocolate souflee which the server put down and then smashed a fork into the middle of to pour in the vanilla sauce - would have liked to put my own sauce on. Not going back

    Our family has truly enjoyed dining at Porto Vivo. It is at the top of our special occasion list. This time was for my aunt's 82nd birthday. Overall the food was amazing. Little disappointed with arugula salad. Wine list very nice, as is the mixed drinks. Little disappointed in the service. Although 2 wait staff introduced themselves to our table, we rarely interacted with one after order was taken and I found myself trying to catch someone's attention a few times. Would still definitely recommend.

    I dined here about a year ago and had a great experience, we decided to come back and well, either they had a change of chefs in the kitchen or they have just gotten lazy. This is a beautiful restaurant and unfortunately, I felt the food quality was no better than what you could get from a standard pizzeria/restaurant. Pasta was limp and mushy, beef was very bland and unseasoned. I was embarrassed because I spoke highly of it to our guests. It was also a meat locker on the 3rd floor where we were seated. I'm a hot blooded male and I was shivering and it helped ruin the experience. We did complain about it and they said they had shut it off, but I could feel the AC blowing on my back. VERY loud too.

    The last two times we have dined here the food has been fantastic. The service was excellent as well. I don't know if they got a new chef recently, but the quality of the food seems a notch up from earlier times we have been there (it was very good before, now it is excellent). It is a little on the pricey side, but worth it.

    We started off by sharing the calamari, which is always tender and very tasty...enjoyed every bite! Then we shared a Baby arugula salad which was crisp and dressed just right. We got the cavatelli with crumbled sausage special, and the halibut over lobster risotto. Both were great! The halibut was seared, crispy on the outside and moist, tender and full of flavor on the inside. We finished with the homemade whoopie pie and a cappuccino. We've been to Porto Vivo a dozen times, and always walk out satisfied...

    My lobster dinner was unsatisfactory. It was the smallest lobster we had seen in a long time. Could not have weighed more than 1 1/4 lbs. Certainly not a two pounder. Spoke to the waitress who said they come from across the street. What kind of response is that. I went home hungry. And it was over broiled.
