Porta Via Restaurant Review

About the restaurant: Stepping into Porta Via is like walking into a New York bistro that we are drawn to for the cozy, relaxing atmosphere. Owner Peter Garland likes to personally greet his clientele, making you feel like a friend. Because of its location in the heart of Beverly Hills, the restaurant fills up at breakfast with power people.

Food & Drinks: The sunny Italian cuisine adds to the homey feeling of the restaurant. Regulars (which are a good sign) like the fried calamari or the beet salad for appetizers. The chef offers a selection of pasta unless you decide to choose an entrée that can be a Parmigiano-crusted halibut, chicken paillard or filet mignon. The lunch menu offers a selection of sandwiches. The bar occupying a large part of the space is the stage for tasting the interesting wine cellar containing a selection of boutique wines. Also located at 1063 N. Swarthmore Ave., Pacific Palisades, 310-499-2989, and 4799 Commons Wy., Ste. J, Calabasas, 818-746-2400.
