Perfect spot for date night. Great food and service. Looking forward to going back.
Service was friendly, the atmosphere is warm yet modern and airy, the menu has many offerings seafood to pasta and seasonal plates, drinks were unique and delicious. Cannot wait to return!
Del Porto is one of the best dining locations in the Covington area. The chefs are so innovative and the food and service are always beyond excellent!!!!
Sat outside on a beautiful fall afternoon day...Fall Special soup was an excellent start, beef carpaccio is always a must for me matched with Super Tuscan pairing...The pan seared Black drum special was very tasty and finished with the chocolate bread pudding...Surely, one of our Top 3 dining gems on the Northshore. Fabulous meal, as always...
The Italian sausage slider on the happy hour menu was outstanding. Absolutely the best Italian sausage ever and a can’t miss.
The other appetizer was good with fried shrimp, eggplant, aioli sauce and crab claws...but I’d have gotten 3 sliders rather than this dish...that slider was out of this world!
The striped sea bass and vegetable was very tasty.
The bolognese was also outstanding!
Great wine and beer selections.
Server was very good. The food took a little longer than expected. The ambiance is very warm and not too loud.
I’d highly recommend this place and I will go back for those sliders during happy hour (before 6:30).
A great evening with friends! Great drinks, delicious food, and excellent service!!!
Shawn, our server, was great. Had a great attitude and sense of humor. The food was amazing. I had the fried appetizer as my meal and my husband had the steak. They were cooked to perfection. I loved the outside seating as well.
This is our favorite restaurant. The food, drink and service are always amazing. Even with the COVID 19 precautions in place it still feels just as it should to have a nice meal out.
Always great to have a meal that is delicious with a fabulous grapefruit martini. Wonderful, friendly service and ambiance.
The reason I gave the food a low rating was due to MY dish. The chef obviously put WAY too much red pepper in the spaghetti - - and I usually can eat the HOTTEST dishes. I ended up eating ice out of my water glass. My husband told me to tell the waiter that it was too hot to eat, but I didn't want to be mean.
Food was delicious! Our first time going for lunch. We will definitely go again.
Beautiful, clean restaurant with friendly staff and delicious food
Fun celebration of friend’s birthday. Great service. Delicious food. Love Del Porto!
Del Porto has always been one of our favorites, and my husband’s birthday was our first time back since the pandemic began. Everything was delicious, and the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and safe. We enjoyed cocktails, one off their special menu with Jameson and luxardo, and the other that same one but substituting gin for whiskey. Both complex and delightful. Our old favorite white bean hummus was like a familiar spa robe, velvety goodness that pleases to the core. Our entrees were perfectly prepared, and we love the half portion option to keep from overeating. The sausage and corn pasta was especially flavorful and memorable. We also loved the cherry tomato pasta with mudrica on top. We are doing our best to stay home amid the presence of COVID in our community, but we will be back to enjoy our beloved Del Porto!
Simple elegance and great food and great value. Our favorite place to dine in Covington always.
Long a Northsore institution, this should be considered a New Orleans institution.
It’s always fanstastic and this night was no exception
Everything was wonderful! Great place for friends to get together and have a fun lunch. Sardinian iced tea is our drink of choice... refreshing and easy to drink. Pate is out of this world! Our waiter Shane was helpful and fun.
Great friendly service! Great food and drinks!
Cocktails and food were great with a cute and cozie atmosphere
Del Porto has been a favorite of ours for a long time. Love that they are back, we missed them so much. We try to make it in at least once each week for the Carpacio & White Bean Artichoke dip.
Wonderful every time!
Always outstanding in quality of food and service. Good social distancing and use of masks by employees
Great place for a special birthday lunch. I enjoyed the 3 course special.
Great dinning experience. We were celebrating a college graduate!
Always wonderful. Reduced menu choices with reduced occupancy due to restrictions brought by Covid-19. Still, always a dish or two to entice the diner. We had our favorite appetizer, Fritti Misti, with tempura style seafood and vegetables, followed by a shared Caesar Salad. I opted for the yellowfin tuna special, while my wife had the pork chop. Coffee and dessert. Cocktails and wine were delightful, and service was excellent. Our favorite restaurant.
So pleased to get a great meal out in a safe environment - super food and so welcoming. A firm favourite.
Just perfect. Went with my wife for our anniversary. Service was great and food was fantastic!
My birthday dinner couldn't have been better! I enjoyed my experience, our waitress was courteous and informative. Environment was beautiful and v clean. Food was great, started w the Anitpasto and ended w a caramel salted chocholate brownie. We will return 💞
One of the best restaurants in the country!
We had a great date night at Del Porto. Plenty of COVID precautions in place with paper menus, staff in masks, and distance between tables. Staff couldn't have been friendlier. The food was outstanding - - loved the simple arugula salad and the duck entree. We'll definitely be back.
Elegant but non stuffy and friendly atmosphere. A great place for wonderful food and good conversations. Good social distancing and professional servers wearing masks. Highly recommend.
Always outstanding! White bean dip a must!
Favorite of ours in Covington. Go there often. Never disappoints.
After many months of being closed, Dave and Torrie are back with everything that makes this place great!
Del Porto is right across the street from the Southern Hotel. We had a reservation and were promptly seated. We ordered the antipasto and even though it was only 2 of us we ate most of it! It's easily enough for 4. I had the special which was redfish cooked crispy on the outside - yummy!!! Can't wait to go back.
This is a fantastic restaurant from the food to the service to the ambience.
Food is unbeatable!
Excellent food and service. Adhered with social distancing guidelines.
The food was fabulous! They do an exceptional job with their tuna entree. But I must say from the appetizers through the desserts there was only perfection. Best restaurant experience I’ve had since before all this quarantine began. So glad they’re back!
