Diner Reviews
  • "This is one of my wife's and my favorite places. The chef (Joe Balbo) is passionate about his profession, and it shows through his creative use of herbs and spices. The food and wine list are excellent, and the staff is friendly. I would recommend this place to anyone on Long Island as one of my top choices! Eat well"

  • "Our waiter introduced himself to our timid children as Uncle Tony and it stuck. He made some excellent recommendations and the kids plates arrived promptly. Buffalo Tortellini was insane, as was the Chicken Milanese. Can't wait to head back"

  • "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."

  • "I went to Porto Vivo with my husband and another couple for dinner on a Friday night. The service was fabulous! The waiter was very helpful and made lots of great suggestions to help us decide what we wanted. Food was delicious and came out in a timely fashion. Will definitely be returning!"

  • "My friend and I tried Porto Vivo on a whim and the food was absolutely amazing. We were seated upstairs and had Tony as our waiter. He had us laughing the whole night and always made sure we enjoyed everything we had. We would definitely come back!"

  • "Gorgeous place, delicious food, and excellent service. We went there with another couple. When we walked in we were blown away by the decor and the warm greeting. Our waiter was excellent. The iPad menus were slick. Chef Joe never disappoints with his variety of flavors and presentation. Everything from the appetizers though dessert was excellent. We can't wait to go back."

  • "we ordered the special sunday dinner of a 2 lb. lobster, with salad or soup, and dessert. all four of us enjoyed our meals and found the service just a bit lacking in attention."

  • "The design of the restaurant I would say is contemporary yet classic. There are 2 floors for dining and a tiered floor off the main dining area where the bar is located. We were greeted right away when entering by the hostess and waiters. We didn't have to wait more then 30 seconds for the waiter to come over. He introduced himself and told us of the specials (Wine and food). He then handed us the menus (iPads, very cool). The waiter returned soon after and took our orders. Never had to wait long for someone to come over and refill our waters (amazing). The food was just ok though and this is why I described the service and ambience more than the food in this review. Thanks"

  • "Again, we were treated very well by the staff. The server couldn't do enough for us. The food, as always, was very good, especially the tuna and the calamari. When I asked about bringing six more people next week, a reservation was immediately taken care of. They make you feel as if you are very special."

  • "This restaurant is beautiful, service is excellent, and the food is memorable! I love the lobster special, which, for about $29,95 (Sunday and Monday nights only), can't be beat! There is a choice of soup or salad, and the 2-pound lobster, done perfectly, comes with corn and potatoes. This time we both ordered the tomato bisque, and it doesn't get tastier than Porto Vivo's! If you've never been here -- try them on a night when they're having their special lobster offer!"

  • "I've been to Porto Vivo before and didn't care for it, but I returned on this night for the Lobster and Ribeye Special...well, I have to say I'm glad I did! It felt as if everything had changed! Service was better, Food was amazing and overall, everything just seemed to be on point! Ben the manager came down from his own private party to say hello, Jared our server was attentive, professional and friendly and Geoff helped in any way he could if we needed anything. The Lobster was cooked perfectly and our steak was outstanding! We'll be back for sure and looking forward to checking out their 1/2 price wine night too! PS...desserts are yummy!!"

  • "The food was so delicious, the best Italian I have had in a long time. A neighborhood gem with great service (Tony was so sweet, personable and on point with everything). Manager checked on us which is always a plus and the ambience was romantic and would be great for a girls night also. Definitely recommend and look forward to going back with my whole family. Our anniversary dinner was really special because of the overall service, food and ambiance."

  • "WE specifically went for the heavily advertised Sunday lobster special We have been to the restaurant before and was anxious to go back. The ambiance is of course the same but the service and treatment is not. Although the dinner was good we were instructed when we sat down that THERE WOULD BE NO SUBSTITUTIONS OF ANY KIND YOU COULD NOT GET YOUR SALAD WITHOUT DRESSING AND IF THERE WERE ANY ALLERGIES DON'T ORDER THE SPECIAL. This made us feel a little like second hand citizens. Since it is still an expensive evening it left A BAD TASTE IN OUR THOUGHTS."

  • "We specifically chose this restaurant to celebrate my daughter's HS graduation (family of 6) becuase they advertised outdoor dining. When we arrived for our reservation, the outdoor dining was our one table in the front of the restaurant on the street! After waiting an endless amount of time, our waitress finally came outside to ask it we got our salads. When we told her we hadn't, they finally arrived. When we got our main course, four out of six meals arrived cold (not just luke warm, but COLD). They were taken back to be heated, but with attitude. After that, our waitress never came out while we were eating to see if we needed anything or if everything was ok Needless to say, we went elsewhere for dessert."

  • "This was my third visit for the restaurants Sunday night 2lb steamed lobster special. The first time it was very good. The second time not quite so since the sides which were advertised as a starch and seasonal vegetable were potatoes and corn-in my opinion, those are 2 starches. This last vist was our last time, and I have called my friends and family with this advice- don't go for the lobster special. It's hard to ruin a steamed lobster, but this restaurant succeeded-rubbery & dry! They must steam, split and hold in a warm oven to create that rubberized texture. And the same 2 starchy sides-no substitutions allowed-potatoes & corn. Sorry, but I can't recommend."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Both the food and the service here was excellent. Love the use of Ipads for menus - photos and descriptions of every menu item. Our waiter Giorgio was a pleasure. Quiet weekday meal and we will return."

  • "The four if us had the Sunday 2pound lobster special. It included soup or salad and two sides. Well worth the money and our waiter was most accommodating and helpful."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Returned two weeks after a very noisy experience in one of their main dining rooms. This time we were seated at a "high" table in the bar area, and the noise level was MUCH lower. The tables are smaller in that area, not really roomy enough for the large plates and lobsters, but it was so much more pleasant having a conversation with less noise around us. Porto Vivo offers a two-pound lobster dinner for $29 on Sunday nights, and it's a great deal! My friend had the salad, and I tried the tomato bisque, which was outstanding. We'll be back soon!"

  • "I have been going to your 2 lb lobster special and bring friends and they always enjoy it."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Disappointed. Haven't been in while and enjoyed other times, although not been since last year. Food is on the pricier side which we don't mind if outstanding. That flavors were decent, but certainly not outstanding. The skirt steak which was recommended by the waiter (I was also considering the veal Milanese) was tasty, but fairly chewy. My wife had the seared tuna and it was also acceptable, but not outstanding. The restaurant was half empty at 7:30 on a Saturday and we set our reservation the day before. Not great signs for a restaurant in Huntington Village. I hope it was a fluke instance and not the norm and wish Porto Vivo all the best. Not sure when or if we'll return."

  • "There are many restaurants in the Huntington area and this was our first visit to Porto Vivo, and our last! The food was terrible! The worst caesar salad Ive ever had! The bread basket came to the table with a small carafe of olive oil which had zero taste, my husband ordered the lobster ravioli which had no lobster in it! And it was drowned in butter! I ordered the veal milanese which was ok but it was covered in a slimy arugula salad! We will not be going back anytime soon!"

  • "Wide variety of choices on menu. Staff attentive but overzealous! Wine overpriced and not properly chilled. Waiter spilled each time he poured Wine sommelier was quiet zero personality. She also spilled wine when she poured. We enjoyed the food We would reccomend this restaurant hopefully you will get a waiter that was not so obnoxious"

  • "We went for Mother's Day with a group from ages 6-85. It was fabolous! Although a preselected menu was available, the options were great and food as expected just delicious! Always a perfect spot to come celebrate special days. I loved that you could make reservations and it was not your typical wait for 1hr for a table type place. We were seated right away and never rushed out of the restsurant. It was a perfect day. "
