The choices are delicious—and many—at IL PORTO, which means you’ll likely change your mind several times before your order is taken. Here is a small sampling of our menu just to get your taste buds primed:

Pasta alla Veneziana -- lobster, shrimp, scallops, and fish sauteed in herbed butter, tossed with pasta and fresh broccoli flowerettes in a cream sauce

Petto di Pollo Portobello -- chicken filets with fresh portobello mushrooms, peppers and sun-dried tomatoes in a white wine sauce

Scaloppine alla Picatta -- veal with capers and a light lemon and wine sauce

We also invite you to try our La Specialita del Giorno and our Chef’s Suggestion as well as many tried-and-true favorites like Spaghetti and Meatballs, Lasagna, and Fettuccine Alfredo.

Whether you choose to dine alone or with that special someone or even with a group of 100 or more of your closest friends, IL PORTO is ready to serve you. We offer seating for 200 on two levels—downstairs and upstairs in our private dining room.
