Another great meal with awesome service. Best Italian food in the county. Owner is always over accommodating and a great host.
Looking forward for next weekend dining there again.

Was a bit disappointed. We’ve been here many times before moving out of state. We were in town for a family function and decided to visit for dinner. Overall, a table of 5 all came to the same conclusion...it wasn’t what we were use to expecting. Not sure if we will revisit in the future.

We requested a corner table due to my hearing disability. One was not immediately available. Front end service was not understanding. We had to offered to wait till one was available. The owner was abrupt and blamed open table. It appeared he never read our request and no apology was offered. A missed service recovery opportunity for sure.
Food and table service was excellent.

Had a dinner for four. Grilled octopus appetizer Norwegian Salmon and Chicken Marsala dinners were delicious. Shrimp scampi and Chicken Milanese type dish we’re just ok.. rather blan. Either way, you’ll have plenty of room for dessert! Either way, not enough bang for your bucks. $$$$

The food was excellent and just the right amount. Not too small and not overwhelming. The crab cakes and steamed clams were delicious. Two guests ordered risotto with shrimp. I ordered shrimp with garlic and another guest ordered Salmon. Very nice presentation, excellent taste.

Worth the 25 minute drive for us. Our third time here (first time not in winter) and were pleasantly surprised to see the menu change with lighter options as the weather got warmer. An Italian restaurant that mixes in a variety of different dishes - not the stereotypical comfort food found elsewhere/everywhere. Outstanding salads, shrimp dishes, etc. Service was outstanding on a Friday night.

Celebrated a family get together Wednesday night at Il Portico. This was not our first visit and we certainly will return. The food was even better than we remember and our servers were lots of fun and on point. We had Octopus,Scallops, Orechiette , and Tagliatelle Bolognese. We
Started with great salads and ended with the two decadent chocolate desserts! Highly recommend and and will most certainly be back!

Really wanted to love this place but the food was incredibly pedestrian. Meatballs were tough and clearly had been reheated more than once. Octopus was inedibly over-salted. Linguine with clams was mediocre and tasteless, though the clams were very fresh. Essentially, I can cook better ‘Italian’ at home, so this was a wasted date night and babysitter money. Very sad.

The atmosphere was homey. The waiter suggested the Syrah which was excellent, as was the buratta. We were debating among the entrees and the waiter said the chicken parm, a little mundane for my usual taste, was out of this world. Based on that two of us ordered it and it was excellent. I thought the scallops has a mushy texture. We will be back.
