Food was good but a bit pricey. Disappointed in lackluster ambiance which was sterile and cold as opposed to charming and historic exterior.

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.

The restaurant was very appealing to the eye. Fell in love with the orchid plants all around the room. The food was delicious and the presentation lovely with very large portions. The bottle of wine was reasonable. I hadn't been to Il Portico for quite some time. Will return more often.

We went here with another couple. The food was amazing the service awesome and it was a great experience. It was pretty empty, but I think that might be because it was a beautiful night and people may have gone to places with outdoor seating. But the owner stop by a few times and the servers were attentive and we will be going back soon

Passed by this place often, but never went in. In a region with many outstanding Italian restaurants, this one was surprisingly good. While this was our first visit and we therefore have limited experience with the menu, everything we had (charred grilled octopus, scallops pasta, veal) was outstanding. It's not a large restaurant so dinner will not be quick. But if you order a good bottle of wine and enjoy the excellent food, it's a terrific place to go. We will be back.

We had a lovely dinner at Portico. The food was wonderful. I enjoyed the spring soup, salmon and tiramisu. The service was courteous and timely, and we were fortunate to have a quiet table in the corner. I had not been to Portico in a few years. Recently, some friends recommended it to me. I'm glad I listened! I look forward to going back soon- and often!

My boyfriend and I went for Valentine's Day and we're definitely not disappointed. The staff was attentive, the ambiance incredible, and the food was to die for! And since it was vday, they gave each woman who came to dinner a single red rose which I thought was thoughtful and sweet! Will definitely be coming back for more special occasions!

The food , ambiance and service were wonderful. The chef has a creative mind which is evident in his preparation, quality and presentation of the food. Every dish that I tried was a culinary experience. I am looking forward to another great evening out at Il Portico. I had the pleasure to talk to the owner . He is a kind and genuine person. Il Portico has made my birthday special .

I took my husband here for his birthday, just the two of us. The most remarkable thing about this restaurant is it's atmosphere. Quaint, cozy, perfect evening on a snowy night. The menu is extremely limited and not well balanced, but the food is good. The service was excellent, our waiter was able to easily answer questions we had about menu selections and we were well attended to. They offer a few desserts, one of which we wanted and they were out of it even though we were there for a 6 pm dinner. The flourless Chocolate truffle was very good, creamy and like fudge. Probably the best selection of the evening. Not a "Wow!" restaurant, but a very pleasant evening.
