    Good place and good environment. This restaurant opened many years ago and I come here quite often back in the day. Services were a bit off this time as they are very busy with few staffs over the long weekend. The waiter apologizes and very polite but we waited 15 mins for the bill while the waiter was running around serving other tables.

    The server was attentive and hospitable! This was our second visit (from Minnesota, US) and it did not disappoint. Ambiance and flavor were on point.

    Restaurant is definitely older and the evening was very slow. The sat us by the other tables so it got very loud around us at one point. Some very loud talkers. But the waiter was super congenial and his service was awesome. Forgot our bruschetta but we were happy in the end because we were stuffed. Too much dressing on the ensalada mista though. Very basic and old school salad. Could be leveled up a notch. Good was tasty enough and comforting.

    We went for dinner last week on our way to an Alaska cruise. We were two couples and this restaurant was recommended by a friend of mine in Pittsburgh. It was a great recommendation and we had a great experience and a great meal. We were all happy and do recommend Al Porto.

    Food was salty. Lack of staff. We waited to be seated as there was no hostess.

    This restaurant is such an hidden gem. Everything we ordered was delicious especially the rack of lamb and the linguine pescatore, absolutely delightful. We’ll definitely be coming back!
