Ristorante Del Porto Restaurant Review

: While tradition is the watchword of most local Italian eateries, Del Porto, from chef-owners David and Torre Solazzo, can easily brag about its contemporary take on long-established dishes --- think spaghetti accented with fresh Gulf shrimp and arugula. The lunch menu features a truffle mushroom risotto, as well as grilled pizzas. The almost all-Italian wine list (with a few domestic selections) could use a bit more of an international approach. However, the Italian offerings are thoughtfully selected and even feature some hard-to-find options. Sorbeti and gelati are the way to go for dessert, especially during strawberry season when the sorbeto is made with berries from Ponchatoula, Louisiana. Alternatively, consider the tiramisu.
