We'll be back.Great food, wine, and desert. Very attentive, polite, and friendly service.
We will be back, and we would recommend Porto Vivo to friends and family.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AM/from the moment we arrived,/from the moment we arrived, the service was excellent. We were immediately brought to our table, then the waiter arrived with the menu and wine list, that is on an I Pad! The food was wonderful, from the appetizers to the dinner choices, which were extensive. Don't miss the desserts, also very good. It was an enjoyable evening.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Thursday night find!We ordered the five course tasting menu and very pleased. The pasta was outstanding, pork perfect, tuna sashimi style as first course,soufflé for dessert.Pork belly BLT inbetween, I'm not a fan but my husband said it was very good. But the best dish was fried crunchy wontons we got as app first. Loved them! The chocolate soufflé delicious. Overall dinner was great! The music got loud early for us, so we couldn't finish dinner with quiet conversation. The acoustics not well suited for restaurant, sound radiates. We went to the bar after dinner for drinks and dancing. So much fun, and the age group was perfect for us. I'd say 40-60, just guessing. The band was great, we enjoy finding dance spots with our type of music and age group.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as usual. Haven't beenGreat as usual. Haven't been there for about 6-8 months as there are so many local restaurants around town for dining. The menu is very imaginative and the quality of the food is terrific. My husband and I try different things every time from appys to dessert even though we have special favorites.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner was delicious, as itDinner was delicious, as it had been the last few times we dined at Porto Vivo; in fact, today I recommended the restaurant to a friend. The menu was quite variedand the service was impeccable. We will definitely return soon.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent. TheThe food was excellent. The menu offers different choices but also some common dishes. The service was great, our server helped us picked out a delicious meal. The calamari was very good and I am not a calamari fan, one of the best I ever had. The dining environment provides privacy and openness at the same time, interesting...
The pasta portions were rather small in comparison to other restaurants. Forget about taking taking any extra home with you.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA GEMFrom the moment we walked in the service was outstanding in this restaurant. They were on top of everything. Very guest conscious. The restaurant is beautiful, with a wine cellar table that can be viewed from the foyer via a window looking down. Multi-level with a bar and live music in the mid level. The menus are on an tablet which was great because you did not have to ask for a wine list. Then came the best part, the food, unbelievably good. This restaurant had it all and the dining experience was wonderful.
The only negative comment is that it was noisy...4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe octopus app was great.The octopus app was great. The tuna is one of the best dishes I've ever had! Almost worth the $35 price tag.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for a quiet dinnerGreat place for a quiet dinner with the wife. This was my second time here and I have yet to be disappointed with the venue, service, or food!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe decor is a bit bland butThe decor is a bit bland but who cares- the food was amazing!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMReally enjoyed our food &Really enjoyed our food & service. Only nuisance--hadn't been here in about a year, & since then, they've made the decision to have their menus completely on iPads. This meant a lengthy demo by our server, which really interrupted the flow of conversation at our table, & took way too long. Not her fault--I'm sure she was trained to be very thorough. There's no way of looking at the whole menu at the same time, you have to go in & out of screens per course. We all found it very cumbersome & unnecessary. Too much time with our heads down in an iPad trying to figure out what we wanted to eat, rather than socializing with each other!! I hope they scrap this & go back to a traditional menu. Ridiculously gimmicky.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a really nice dinner....foodHad a really nice dinner....food was very good as was the service....beautiful place with really nice bar area....will definitely go back again!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMA lot to offer!Great find in Huntington, we heard the portions were small-couldn't be further from the truth! Don't let the negative reviews stop you-four of us had a GREATexperience-definitely not cheap, but you get what you pay for. We all recommend this restaurant for dinner, but if your're still unsure, at least give it a shot at the bar, and you'll want to go back to enjoy the rest of what they have to offer!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent eating experience,Excellent eating experience, wonderful munu, impeccible service, perfect ambiance - highly recommend for a delicious dining choice in Huntington NY3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe took our kids, as we doWe took our kids, as we do all the time to restaurants of all types, and my ONLY (and it's slight) critique would be that it wasn't the most kid-friendly place... now, when I say that, it's an upscale restaurant that isn't exactly going for that. But, we take our kids to pretty much every restaurant in Huntington (Mac's, Besito, Fado, Buenos Aires, etc.), so our "kid-friendly" means something a little different. Food was great, entertainment was great... definitely recommend.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAmbiance and Taste Get an "A"Although I have been to Porto Vivo for drinks at the bar before, I never sat down to have a meal...I'm sad I was missing out! I had the Linguine Porto Vivo (Slow Roasted San Marzano Tomato Sauce / Basil) and it was outstanding - i'd go back just for that dish. The homemade pasta was excellent and the sauce was absolutely perfect. We also got the Margherita Pizette, and while it was delicious, it could have come out warmer. The Halibut dish looked fantastic as well. Would absolutely go back.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden GemDelicious modern Italian dishes. Nice ambience. Perfect service -- attentive, without being overbearing, seriously perfect. The Tuscan Onion Soup Arancini are not to be missed!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHoliday mealVery good value for Thanksgiving prix-fixe, good choices too!11/22/2012 12:00:00 AM
