Italian
From the beginning, we had a very simple goal: To serve the best Italian food around. Food that we can present to our guests with pride. In Pursuit of that goal, we constantly seek ways to give the very best of what we have to offer!

Being a family-owned and operated business, we’re able to offer you that personal touch you’ve been looking for. Our goal is to make all of our customers happy.

Opened in May of 2001. It was one of the first restaurants to offer authentic Italian cuisine in Downtown Dallas. The street-side windows allow for you to view the venerable Neiman Marcus, as well as the passing traffic of vehicles and people on foot.
Porta Di Roma has menus featuring award-winning pizzas and a wide variety of pasta dishes, many of which are graced with chicken breast, fresh veal, and an assortment of seafood. Lunch and dinner specials prepared by the Chef / Owner Demi are must-try items. With a full-service bar and an affordable wine list, your stay here will be a memorable one!

    My friends joined my wife and I for a show at the Majestic in Downtown Dallas. We decided on Italian for the dinner and I found Porta Di Roma within walking distance from the theater. Outside of our waitress appearing nervous, (yet she did a great job) Porta Di Roma is a very nice casual restaurant...great location, great ambiance, great food, and was an enjoyable experience before our show. It will be a restaurant that we will consider visiting again when we are in the Downtown Dallas area, so highly recommended!

    My date and I ordered the chicken Marsala and the beal Marsala. The risotto was good and my chicken was cooked well, however, the sauce was a little salty. We didn’t love the bread/rolls. I thought they needed a little more flavor. The server was very nice and attentive. She recommended some wine that was really good. We ordered the strawberry cheesecake and espresso martinis (with Baileys instead of Kahlua) after dinner. Both were great. My only complaint was the slice of cheesecake was really thin. Overall, it was a great experience and I would go back.

    Poor service and it wasn’t even busy.. the manager was so busy smoking out side they went to get him because we wanted to complaint about seating for 20 minutes without even being acknowledged. He basically told us it is what it is… I will recommend going to the taco place few steps away. They were nice!

    We had pizza and spaghetti in the arugula salad, for dessert the cream cake and spumoni. The service was great, and the best thing about the restaurant! Of course, the food was delicious. We have no complaints about the food whatsoever. We had a nice window table. Our server was very attentive!

    The food is not good. Ordered calamari, bruschetta, and supreme pizza. The calamari breading fell off right away, but was okay with the marinara. Bruschetta was okay, topped with marinara…. The pizza. Was. Horrible. My school lunch pizza was better than that. The veggies were hard, cheese unmelted, not a lot of base sauce. I asked to add pepperoni, which made it better. The redeeming part was the tiramisu, but that might be because I love dessert…. Would not go back.

    I reserved online and called the day before the reservation to confirm my party as well as confirming online. When we arrived a little before 7 the restaurant was full. I asked about our reservation and we were asked to hold on. For 25-30 minutes we stood there in a small, crowded lobby waiting while the hostess ran around and tried to figure out what to do. One of the women in my party finally asked, “do you not have a table for us?” and we finally got an answer of no. We asked to speak to a manager and were told one wasn’t there. We were told sorry, nothing we can do to help you. We were told we would need to wait at least another 45 minutes to have a table, so 1.5 hours after our reservation time. Very disappointed about the situation and also the lack of response to resolve the error.

    We had reservations on NYE for 9:45. We got there about 9:35 and the lady said wait one hour, I said no we had reservations. 4 people left their table and only a group of 6 who also had reservations were too big for it so we just sat down. First thing the server said was we are closing in 15 minutes, you can order but bar is closing. The food was very sub par and tiny portions and our burrata appetizer came out when we asked for the bill, ugghhh. They refused to take it off our bill. We will not return. I know NYE is stressful but it was very evident the employees just want to be done and go do their fun activities. Made for a horrible experience

    We went in New Year’s Eve. We know it’s a busy time and they were short in staff but the experience in the restaurant was good. Good food and Marisol gave her best to serve us.

    It’s a cute small place. Our reservation was at 9pm, we were coming for dinner after my daughter had a performance at the symphony center down the street. It took us 10 minutes to be noticed and seated & I assumed it was because there were only 2 serves and a bartender. It was late on a Sunday, an hour before they closed so I won’t hold that against them. Food was just ok- mid. Having just come back from Italy, it’s hard to compare to authentic Italian. My Bolognese tasted like spaghetti with papdelle noodles. My husband said the chicken parm was just ok didn’t have much flavor and my daughter got a pizza which we all had a slice and it was very good. If we returned for a last minute dinner we’d all probably get a pizza.

    We were seated near the kitchen door which make a pounding noise every time it swings - which is often. The noise level was higher than I prefer but we had 6 people and were able to hear most of what was said at the other end of the table. The food was very good!! It all came out piping hot and the flavor was fabulous. Would ask for a different area to sit next time but definitely a good find!
