Porta Via Italian Foods Restaurant Review

: Porta Via is a tremendous resource, whether you like to cook, just reheat, or simply consume. The upscale Italian deli-café with elegant white marble counters and a shady patio offers first-rate sandwiches, from a meatball sub to an “Autostrada” (filled with prosciutto, soppressatta, coppa, provolone and pepperoncini), and a wide selection of fresh salads. Heat-and-eat lasagna and entrées like olive-stuffed leg of lamb or poached salmon on farro are ready for your oven, and a nice selection of cured meats and Italian cheeses fills the deli cases. A variety of wine and beer is available.
