The chicken we get in the US is mostly heavily processed and void of flavor. I had to pause for a moment after my first bite of the chicken at La Porta - so delicious. Can't wait to return!

We stopped here for a dinner and everything was absolutely fabulous: we had homemade ravioli ricotta e spinaci with ragù di cinghiale, costicine with vegetables and crostata also homemade. Everything delicious! In summer thay have a fantastic terrace outside with view to the sea. If you come to Capalbio that's your place!

Nice place, we get impressed by the incredible view and get a table outside. Food quality is ok, according to Italian standard i was expecting a bit more... Grilled pork is tasty and sausages too. Children friendly. Outside a lot of bees & flyes are a bit annoying but not terrible.

This is a little jewel of a restaurant located in the medieval town of Capalbio. As you enter into the gates of the town, Porta Senese, you walk no more than 30 meters before you reach the interior city walls with a clock tower. Once through this second gate and about 20 more paces to your left is a Signora... More

In this restaurant you can try excellent traditional food from Tuscany, at a very reasonable price, in wonderful Capalbio. Book in advance for a table outside in the summer months, they have tables right on the ancient walls of the city. Try the "tagliatelle al cinghiale" (wild boar sauce) or "tagliatelle al ragù di anatra" (duck sauce), you won't be... More

We expected a lot more from our dinner at La Porta. It's got great view and nice staff which is probably its best selling point. The food was unfortunately just ordinary, not uplifting or innovative in any way. Pappardelle with wild boar ragú were a good standard, tagliatelle with asparagus from the daily menu were rather far from great pick... More

The food is good and ambiance is very nice. There many people here on this Wednesday when half of the local restaurant are closed. We have to wait for a while before a table become vacated. So you'd better reserve in advance or come at opening time. There are choices of meat such as wild boar or rabbit in the... More

La Porta is a lovely restaurant inside the walls of Capalbio. They have tables outdoors overlooking the countryside. We were told we had to order their Aquacotta Soup. Translated it means water soup and there is a legend behind how it got the name. Anyhow it is a rustic vegetable soup heavy on onions that is ladled over toasted bread... More

This is one of the holy grails of Italian meals---ambiance, service, quality, and tranquility. I was raised in Tuscany and have been stationed in Italy in Naples and Rome. This, by far, was the best meal, echoing back to the authentic Tuscan cuisine of my childhood. This family run place specializes in grilled meats, grilled right before you in the... More
