It was our anniversary and we were greeted with champagne on the house. The drinks, food, waiter, atmosphere was amazing. Never a disappointment.

Food was delicious and the service was excellent. Noise level was very high. We could barely have a conversation and our throats were sore upon leaving because of having to yell to talk to one another. Would have been a perfect experience except for the noise .

From the moment you enter you feel a lightness with your surroundings. It’s is all white with rustic chandeliers hanging from ceiling. The light in the restaurant is warm and inviting.
The waitstaff was professional with the perfect balance of being intimate with the patrons.
The food was excellent. Perfect portions and just delicious. They do 1/2 portions of their pastas which I love.
I recommend Del Porto with 10s across the board. Will definitely be going back. Thank you a lovely evening.

We love Del Porto. It has the perfect combination of exceptional food, wine and cocktails along with the most dedicated and talented staff. There is no better night out than to enjoy multiple courses and accompaniments at the old Hebert Drugs building in historic downtown Covington. Divine!!

Everything was great regarding the meal and dining experience. Only issue was with packaging of our leftovers. They were placed in the go box with the box upside down- vent holes were on the bottom and sauce leaked out in my car! Not good!!

We have dined at del Porto for many years. Never had the grilled chicken until tonight. What a fabulous dish. Most delicious chicken I have ever eaten. Will have to have it again to make sure they didn’t get lucky. Dreamsicle semifreddo and smoked Italian coffee were get great desert choices. Also Ray “Red” server provided good service.

This place is incredible and the only reason I didn't choose 5 stars on all categories is because of the noise level. The place was not even half full and it was nerve racking loud.

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.
