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.

    Moi & Marcelo were amazing! So was the octopus and the scallops! I hadn’t been to Porto in awhile and it did not disappoint! We will be back again soon!

    Excellent food and service! The Pan-Mass is lucky to have a partner in Porto and affiliate restaurants. Beautiful setting!

    Ate here during a college visit to Boston. Food was amazing. Octopus appetizer specifically was tender and delicious. Cookie desert was fabulous too. Staff was attentive but not intrusive. Expensive but worth it!

    This was hands down the best meal I’ve had in a restaurant for as long as I can remember. Our server Kenneth was spot on with the description of our meal. My husband and I shared the Piatto di Mare. The flavor profile of the entire meal, including the sides that came with it, were absolutely outstanding! My son had the skirt steak which he also said was good.

    Very well-prepared salmon with a Lebanese-inspired purée. Serving size was just right and the crispy smashed potatoes side dish was perfect.

    Open table did not have our reservation at the hostess desk even though I had the correct date and time in my email confirmation. Problem should be corrected as this cause serious problems during busy times.
