Porto boasts a large and beautiful heated patio space with a retractable awning and sides in the middle of Boston's Back Bay neighborhood. The menu is inspired by Coastal Mediterranean selections with a focus on Italy's coast. Porto is located on Ring Road in Boston's Bay Bay, steps from the Prudential Center and Copley, next door to Saks Fifth Avenue.

Enjoy a lively meal in either of Porto's well appointed dining rooms, or indulge in a casual meal at the bar or kitchen counter seating, overlooking the oyster bar and open kitchen. Porto's one-of-a-kind outdoor patio and bar overlooks Ring Road with Boylston Street views, and serves as a Mediterranean oasis, right in the heart of Back Bay.

    The food was excellent, good portions and variety. Ambience was good. Service was a touch slow probably due to business of Saturday night but otherwise very good.

    Great menu, good location/setting, a little noisy - dining room echoes. A little pricy for what you get but not too bad.

    Porto is superlative in so many ways. From the beautiful patio/interior and ambiance, to the exquisite service and food, we were delighted. We are long term fans of Jody Adams (Rialto from the 80s) and her caring comes through, especially through the warmth and professionalism of the servers. We really look forward to many more meals in the future -

    Food is excellent at Porto. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. Though thru no fault of his own, it took forever for our entrees to arrive. He was very apologetic about this but still, waiting over an hour for entrees is too long. Also the noise level inside the restaurant was very loud.

    The meatballs were fine, but nothing special. The Mezcal Margarita was a bad choice. Indoor seating is for those with skinny butts.

    The food was INCREDIBLE, particularly the octopus . It was like butter and of the quality you would get off the Mediterranean coast.

    Amazing evening on Porto patio. Our waiter Kenneth was the most attentive and thoughtful server we’ve ever had and made our evening perfect! We will be back again and again!
