Ristorante Del Porto Restaurant Review: Del Porto is the brainchild of husband-and-wife chef team David and Torre Solazzo. The softly elegant and minimalist décor parallels the straightforward, well-executed cuisine. Typical of the Solazzos’ offerings are a simple risotto with Parmesan, locally grown mushrooms and truffle oil, or the spaghetti with clams and garlic. Almost anything on the menu goes well with the roasted Brussels sprouts with garlic and the imaginative addition of orange zest. That doesn’t mean there aren’t some more distinctive choices, such as the house-made pumpkin ravioli, accented with sage brown butter and shaved Parmesan. This is true Italian cooking, without any unnecessary additions or surprise ingredients. Wines perfectly complement the theme of simplicity with a nice balance of Italian and domestic labels. Take your time to peruse the list: it's longer than you might expect and very well thought out. If dining as a duo, for dessert, one guest should order Italian wedding cake and the other the tiramisu.
