Food was excellent, wait staff was short a few so our service was slow. We sat in the back area so, volume was reasonable.

Great food and great portions. The watermelon sorbet was incredible. Service was professional and prompt. Even during a busy night they were happy. It was lively, but not overpowering. We could have a conversation without any trouble.

Wonderful as always- the food was outstanding. Ricotta Gnudi were incredible with a sauce with incredible nuances and flavors. A four course meal took 90 minutes but was not rushed - excellent servers and service . The best restaurant on the Northshore and in New Orleans region

easily the most beautiful restaurant on the northshore. food is excellent - but some dishes are past their prime and have been lingering on the menu for too many years. the charcuterie board is NOT one of those items. it's nearly a meal in itself and not to be missed.

We came here for our 2 year anniversary and to celebrate my husband being back home from being gone with the Army! It was our first time here and it was amazing. We loved the complimentary bread & olive oil. The arugula salad was so good, as was our dinner dishes! The service was also incredible.

Chicken liver pate outstanding, and Fritto Misto very good. Not enough crostini served with pate, but after a few requests, more showed up. Paninnis did not disappoint; pasta was good as was pizza (thin crusted). No complaints about desserts either, with the oval shaped cone for ice cream delicious and a very good tiramisu. Service was slow, and we did need to keep asking for things.

The food was absolutely incredible! We ordered two appetizers, 3 panini's, and 2 desserts. I highly recommend that patrons should make reservations due to it's popularity. I made reservations for Father's Day and for my wedding anniversary.

Great dinner as usual The crispy duck was wonderful. along with the tuna crudo. Great drinks and wine also. The only issue we had was with the noise in the wine room. There were several large groups that were very loud. Del Porto is always a good consistent place.

Very pleasant experience. The food was very good and the service was outstanding with just the right touch of attention. The first table that was assigned to us was less than optimal and I requested another table that was almost secluded. The hostess was most accommodating and without pause, switched us to the requested table. This gave rise to most enjoyable dining experience.

Prompt, efficient, friendly and professional service.

Great ambience. They are very good at respecting the Covid rules and making it seem natural.

Our appetizers were brought within minutes of ordering them. I had the Fritti Mitti? Incredible lightly fried sword fish, shrimp, mushrooms and squash with a garlic aioli sauce. Generous and tasty.

My wife had a arugula salad w lemon vinaigrette which was very good.

My wife had the pork Bolognese which was fresh, generous and tasty.

I had the pan fried red fish with potatoes and a wonderful cabbage, tomatoe, and broccoli combination in a unassuming but great sauce.

I always like to try something different when I go here because they always seem to deliver on each item.

Great and well run restaurant.

The real purpose of a review is to influence a reader to go to a restaurant or to avoid it. Del Porto is highly recommended for its staff, attention to detail and great tasting food in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
