Del Porto Ristorante
Always an exceptional dining experience. Food and service are the best!
Wonderful experience, the ambiance was perfect and the food was magnificent. In downtown Covington I’ve been to an array of choices for dinner, but Del Porto brings extreme value to the area and will be a certain go to from now on.
A great evening with friends in a setting that added to the experience. The staff knows when to leave you alone and also when to appear with out intruding.
My wife and I chose this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary as well as Mother's Day. We were quite pleased with everything and would recommend it, again, to our friends and family. Food was outstanding, service was excellent and seating good. I must give a thumbs up to Irma, our waitress, who made excellent suggestions for our meal and wine.
As usual at Del Porto, the food was exquisite. Service was impeccable and the menu always offers interesting selections. One of our favorites.
Pork Chop was delicious
Lemon fish special was very fishy tasting and uneatable
ambiance very good
Great food great service the best restaurant in Covington
One of the best restaurants on the Northshore. The food and service are always consistent!
Slapped, but sat in the middle while crowded and could barely hear my date sitting next to me
Warm, friendly and professional service from the moment we stepped inside. Our server Matt was very attentive to our needs and made excellent recommendations on wine and food. The prosciutto and melon were as good as I have had anywhere including Italy. The tagliatelle with spring vegetables was delicious and beautifully presented. The half portion was plenty at lunch especially after the generous starter serving. My husband started with the soup of the day which he said ‘was a hit’. After, he had the muffuletta panini. Delicious! He thought he would save half to take home for supper, but he couldn’t resist and finished every last bite. Dessert of the sorbet, for him, and the gelato for me, was refreshing and delicious served in a lace cookie ‘bowl’. We were so impressed with our overall experience that we went back for dinner that night and we were not disappointed. I was afraid we couldn’t repeat the fun time we had at lunch but the restaurant did not disappoint. Consistency in quality of service and food. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area.
overall a good dining experience however, it is noisy inside the building and would be difficult for someone with hearing aids to fully enjoy. The waitstaff was kind and diligent. The food was good but not as flavorsome as some reviews suggest.
Top notch Italian in a very charming setting. Tough to park, but worth the inconvenience. Will be back.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the good service. From the time we talked to the matri de to settling up the check was very enjoyable. My wife had an Italian crayfish dish which she loved. I had the tuna which was a special. We loved it all.
The food was excellent, service was wonderful, noise level was a pretty loud but overall had a wonderful time for my birthday with my husband.
We love Del Porto Ristorante, it's one of our favorites on the North Shore. Always great food and Martini's
Best restaurant on the Northshore, top 5 in New Orleans metro area. Food, drinks, wine, knowledgeable staff. Does get rather noisy when busy, which is most of the time. Always a pleasure dining at Del Porto Ristorante.
Food is consistently great, as is the ambiance and the staff. Enjoy it every time.
Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. The restaurant is often quite noisy but we asked for a quiet table (4 persons) and were accommodated. This might not have been so easily accomplished on a weekend; we dined on Tuesday evening.
Limited menu but good food. The service is outstanding and great location
Wonderful food and awesome waiter! We will definitely go back.
We were so surprised. The food was fine. Nothing like we’d had before. Nothing we ate could be described as delicious and anything we’d come back for. Our server was very nice, but not into it. I guess it was an off night.
We went for Happy Hour specials. Nice wine, drink specials. And great small plates. Perfect for Happy Hour.
Not as good as our first time. Grapefruit martini had a strong liqueur (triplesec?) overpowering the grapefruit juice. Disappointed that there isn’t a vegetarian pasta option. The tuna appetizer was odd and lacking. The special, grouper and veggies, was very good.
Food was exceptional!!! Andrew was our server, superb job. He was knowledgeable about menu items and helped us though our gastronomical experience.
Is my second time visiting this area and eating here! Always great! Wine great and Grape fruit Martine so refreshing!
Excellent lunch. Especially enjoyed appetizer of the day. Love the atmosphere.
A top restaurant in the area and by far our favorite for special guests and special occasions. Always fresh and changing yet always consistently excellent.
Excellent food in beautiful downtown Covington. A nice seating to have a memorable meal and experience.
Perfect spot for a date- dimly lit, candle light, white table cloths, fresh red roses on each table. The food was phenomenal and the service was impeccable. My only minor complaint was the noise level, it was very loud and difficult to hear my date sitting right beside me.
Simply always above and beyond...thank you for doing what you do...
Great date night with my husband! We really enjoyed ourselves and we will be back.
I spent the night at the fine Southern Hotel , across the street and looked forward to this dinner. It was very good but a bit disappointing given such high expectations.
The setting is very attractive and the staff very welcoming. My starter was a delicious Meyer Lemon and preserved fennel risotto. My entree however was the roast chicken which was a bit dry and undersauced. Dessert was a very tasty apple tart with ice cream. All in all, an experience worthy of another attempt.
Only thing was they didn’t know it was for a birthday and didn’t do anything special even though I put down birthday
Very good service. Menu offers potential excitement. Atmosphere is energetic.
Great food as always, but it was a Friday night and the bar scene was extremely noisy. Not the end of the world and they were able to put us in the wine room which is nice and calm
Excellent as always. Claire is a wonderful server. Best in Covington.
It was one of the best meals we have shared in quite some time.
My favorite restaurant. Great food, drinks, atmosphere & excellent service. Food is high quality, creative & delicious.
Perfect for a special occasion too!
Steak wasn’t cooked correctly but they made it right for us.
Always excellent. We send people for what we call one of the best restaurants in the South!!
