Outstanding food and attentive service in an upscale setting. But definitely not quiet. Lively can be good, but you will find yourself shouting in conversation with your dinner guests. Personally, we look forward to returning soon.

Excellent food and service. Amber is a top notch server, attentive but not overly invasive, sincere, friendly and always with a smile. A top northshore dining spot.

This was my first visit to Del Porto and I found it very enjoyable. We went there for my wife's birthday and they didn't disappoint. The waiter was fantastic, attentive and not overly talkative. He gave just the right amount of attention. The restaurant was a little warm but comfortable. The NY Strip was incredible but I would have liked a few more mushrooms and demi glaze, only because the demi glaze was the best I had ever had.
My wife had the Scallops and enjoyed them very much except that they sat on a bed of pasta which was a bit much.
Overall a great experience, we will be back.

Dinner is always good here. But it is a very loud place. Hard to hold a conversation at times. Could do with a few less tables squeezed in but. Still one of my favorites.

Great speciality martinis!

I always enjoy our meals at Del Porto. It is frequently very loud in the front room. This time we ate in a back room that was not loud and we could talk to our guests. The food was it’s usual high quality..

Always hospitable with wonderful food offerings. The great flavors and locally-sourced ingredients never disappoint...the sweet potato-fennel sausage featured on our visit was no exception! The anchored staff is knowledgeable and eager to please.

So loud, couldn’t talk, so dark couldn’t read the menu without phone light. Ordered expensive Barolo that was light as rose and tasted like vinegar. Food was awful. Tiramisu was only good thing.

Large table of young women in the back room were excessively loud. Very hard to have a conversation with all the screaming.

Del Porto is one of the best on North Shore. My wife has chosen it several times for special occasion meals. Excellent menu choices prepared by talented chefs, really good bartender and attentive service.

This was my first time to go to DelPorto. The service was good and the food. It was somewhat pricey, but we each had a glass of wine.

Continues to maintain its high standards. We love their pasta in all its forms. This time we tried the NY strip steak, which also turned out to be a superb choice. Cocktails and deserts remain yummy! Don't tell to many people.

We were a party of 6 and went to celebrate a birthday at lunch. The dining area was half full but still very hard to hear on talk at a normal volume. The food was competent but not overwhelming.

Had a 7:30 Saturday night reservation. The place was packed with people. The noise level was at such a high level, it was difficult to converse. Additionally, the service was slow. It took over 2 hours for dinner for 2. Based on this experience, and we have eaten at del Porto many,many times, I will not do Saturday night dinner again. Apparently the 40 somethings like to do things very loud. Food was good as well as the wine selection.

First time here. Food is very good. Greatly enjoyed the homemade pappardelle and the Gulf drum fish. Fish was accompanied by just average green beans and a nicely seasoned portion of squash. Had Tiramisu for dessert and it was very good.
