Il Porto Restaurant Review

: Il Porto’s best offering is perhaps the fried zucchini antipasto; the minestrone lacks character and flavor --- and, for that matter, enough ingredients (beans, pasta and vegetables) to give it texture. If you are craving pasta, however, you may be in luck. We can point to the cannelloni with tomato sauce as a possible pick, or fettuccine Alfredo with shrimps. Your thoughts may wander to the pizza choices, or maybe you are on the lookout for meatier fare, so try the pork chops, veal scaloppine or chicken entrées. Ask about the wine list, which presents a fair number of international and domestic labels. The carryout menu resembles the eat-in version, with antipasti, pasta, and seafood and meat mains.
