Thanksgiving with family
Amazing place with great food and music live enjoyable time with my family thank you
Probably the best Italian restaurant in old Town Alexandria. They've weathered the pandemic well and offer delicious food and beverages and a great experience overall. Check out the Monday and Tuesday dinner specials
The food, the service & the atmosphere was enjoyable! It was a family gathering after more than 2+ years apart!
Very quiet for lunch with excellent service. Food very good. Servers vaccinated.
Hit or miss food--the onion tart and the fried oysters were divine. The portobello mushroom and the lemon tart were mediocre. The hanger steak fell somewhere in between. Our server was lovely and the jazz band was really good.
We are locals and absolutely love this place. The menu items are delicious and there is something for everyone. The management is engaged and helpful. We love the warm, romantic ambiance and wonderful live music.
We enjoyed our lunch and service was quick and courteous. We ate on the patio on a rare beautiful November day.
We had a party of six for a business dinner. We were well taken care of and the food was excellent. Highly recommend.
Great vibe with jazz pianist, creative recipes, special Monday/Tuesday night menu with wine. Very personable staff. Have come here many times.
Great restaurant with excellent food, and impressive live music every night.
We made a last minute reservation and were seated at a high top in the bar, which felt a little awkward. But we struck up a fun conversation with the couple at the table next to us and had a wonderful evening.
Amazing food!! Had the hanger steak and Mac and cheese. Soooo good. Service top notch. So welcoming!! Can’t wait to come back!!!
Just came from The Kennedy Center and this was our first outing since COVID-19. Great dinner after the show. Food was great, Sonny our server was terrific, and the live music was a treat.
It was a fantastic evening. We were there for the wine tasting. Loved it!
Great place located right next door to Marriott Residence Inn on Duke-little gem hidden away from busy King street. Decor is blast from the past, but that’s the charm of it. Live pianist adds to ambience. Get the pork belly appetizer, you won’t be sorry. The restaurant is split away from bar side, so makes dining alone on business easy and comfortable.
Where else in Alexandria can you enjoy a great dinner accompanied by an incredibly talented jazz trio?
A friend and I wanted to go somewhere with live music so we tried Laportas. I had the Caribbean salmon which was cooked perfectly. Started with the Lobster Bisque which was flavored well and ended with a Lemon Tart which was fantastic. Service was an great and the live music was a jazzy/Bossa Nova style group. If you’re looking for a young, hipster place this isn’t it. But if you’re looking for great food in a grown up atmosphere give this place a try.
As always, the food was delicious. Margaret’s desserts are out of this world. The music was an added treat.
There was no one at the host stand multiple times, so we dined at the bar. Laporta’s reported our reservation as a no-show.
Amazing food. Really wonderful dining atmosphere. Live but light music. Try the strawberry mojito and the halibut!!
We had an enjoyable brunch on Sunday with our great grandson. The guitar music was lovely. The menu was interesting and the food was great. The waiter was friendly and helpful. It was the whole package!
We had a not so good experience with two pasta dishes. One we had to ask for extra sauce as the noodles were dry and the other tomato based dish was very acidic.
They moved us into the bar area because of the weather. Very helpful but a touch nosy because of it. Overall a great night.
Great food and live music to set the tone. A little dark at our table making it hard to read the menu but overall it was a wonderful experience and an amazing meal.
It was a wonderful experience for everyone. Food was delicious.
I sure hope it was just an off night for our server. The food was excellent, hostess very kind, but server seemed to be going through the motions and barely tolerating the process of talking to us, which was uncomfortable enough to keep us from going back anytime soon when there are so many other fabulous places nearby that have both good food and good service.
We are traveling and were very happy to find this restaurant.
We enjoyed the excellent live music it enhanced our dining experience!
I dined here with friends on Saturday evening. The menu offered a fine selection of appetizers and pasta/seafood/chicken entrees. Everyone at our table enjoyed the food. Service was good and the entertainment trio was an added bonus. I recommend this restaurant.
Wonderful food, drinks and service! Great ambience and the jazz was a nice addition. Definitely will return
Our party of four had dinner on a Friday night. We all had different drinks and different entrees. Drinks were sangria, vodka cocktail and Pinot Noir. Entrees were ravioli with mushrooms, salmon over fettucini, fish, and hanger steak. All were very good. Server was helpful although a bit chatty. The food came out more quickly than you would expect. There was a jazz trio which was a nice surprise. Evidently they are there every Friday evening. I would definitely recommend this place.
Lovely restaurant. Good Italian food and great service.
While the food was delicious, the service was awful. I’m not sure if our server was hungover or just really unhappy to be there, but it reflected in his attitude throughout the meal. He was inattentive and seemed inconvenienced by our presence. My boyfriend asked for a drink menu at the beginning of our meal, didn’t receive it u til halfway through dinner, and never was asked for a drink order. He also had to eat half his steak dinner without a steak knife after asking for one twice. I was highly disappointed as this was a special occasion which I indicated upon making the reservation. We were seated at a small table outside shoved up against the window in the back corner. My boyfriend also asked for no garlic on his food due to being very intolerant (which our server said was no problem). However, half the food on his plate was still heavily seasoned with garlic which he could not eat.
Always a pleasure. We’ve never had a bad meal here. Great jazz. Great ambiance
Underappreciated gem! Good food, easy parking, very nice service.
Best eggs Benedict in the world
