    Took over an 1 1/2 for the food to come out. When it did my shrimps were half cooked n raw. My god daughter wasn’t pleased with her chicken parmigiana. My cousin had steak n eggs , the steak look like a strip of bacon. The drinks were pretty ok. We found out towards the end they were short a cook. It might had been they were overwhelmed with a table of 10 people. The place wasn’t full. But overall the ambiance was nice.

    THE RESTAURANT WAS CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS BUT OBVIOUSLY FORGOT TO TELL ANYONE. Ended up finding a much much better Italian restaurant just up two blocks and around the corner "LaRina" much better. Highly recommend. Actually open when it says so on google maps.......

    The pizza here is incredible. It’s the best pizza we’ve had in a while — especially the Sicilian style. The tiramisu was absolutely delicious and the staff was so kind. We also loved the ambiance. Will definitely be back.

    Terrific spot in Brooklyn when your kids go to the Pratt Institute! Less than a mile drive from campus. Everything was excellent - we especially enjoyed the Bruschetta choices and the Grandma’s pizza. Service was perfect and welcoming. We will be back!

    The restaurant sits across from a fish market and at the time we dined outdoors, all we could smell was smelly fish. The restaurant itself was nice and they had live music too. The service was amazing but the food was a bit mediocre. For instance, my friend’s risotto had too much broth in it which resulted in a full blown soup. My other friend ordered their salmon but they over cooked it and it was a bit bland too. We also ordered their calamari and lasagne too. We thought both dishes were delicious.

    Restaurant was half full, but the other parties there were extremely loud and shouting despite sitting within a few feet of each other. This is a very noisy restaurant and there is no sound absorption. The service was perfunctory and adequate, although the server seemed a little rushed and wasn’t the friendliest. The food was disappointing. I ordered a minestrone soup but received the fagioli soup instead. Since I could have been happy with either, I accepted it and didn’t send it back. It was not a good soup, very watery and not many beans. It was more like a canned vegetable soup with a small amount of beans added in. Main course was chicken parm with spaghetti. No different from what I could get at red sauce places back home for less money. It wasn’t bad, but was only average. Dessert was a couple of a cannolis and a scoop of vanilla gelato. The latter was actually good. The cannoli shells were very hard and probably stale. They were impossible to cut into with a fork, so I had to eat them with my hands. The ricotta inside them tasted okay, though a little bland. I’m still looking for a place that serves appropriately priced Italian fare in Brooklyn, because this place is not one of them.

    Everytime I go...I am so amazed at the service, the food, the drinks, the ambience and the staff. Our waiter Amir was so helpful, friendly and full of suggestions. He helped make the experience even more tailored to for an amazing time. From the Pizza...which is artisanal, to the well constructed Italian dishes not matter what you pick it will be amazing in an amazing setting.

    Il Porto is a subtle gem on Washington Avenue in Brooklyn just at the entrance to Steiner Studios. The music that was being played as we entered, and indeed until we departed, was a mix of jazz sounds from the 40s, 50s, and 60s. Nice! The wait staff was caring, patient, and willing to give us time and space. The pizza we enjoyed had a delicious, light crust with very fresh ingredients. We also enjoyed a side of lightly sauteed spinach sprinkled with fresh lemon juice and sesame seeds. Yum! We plan to return again and again.
