We came here as a group of 4 before a concert at the Stone Pony. The restaurant was busy on a Saturday night and we were told it would be around 25 minutes so we gave our name and stepped out for a drink around the block. The hostess took our phone number and said she would call, which is... More

This place has delicious food, cool vibe, great everything. I can't suggest enough that you haven't had a proper visit to Asbury Park if you don't make it here. Dinner time is crazy, don't be surprised if you have a long wait time. We go there at 3 or 4pm eat and drink after a day at the beach. I... More

Came on a chilly Thursday evening and was surprised to find a 45 - 60 minute wait. We stalked the bar and snagged a few seats as people left and enjoyed dinner without the wait. The meatballs were excellent. Very flavorful and moist in a tasty red sauce. The margherita pizza was also excellent. Nice chewy crust with just a... More

Arrived on spring break week with family. Lunch took over an hour. Ordered two pizzas, an egg sandwich and focaccia. Staff brought the egg sandwich for one member of our party and then we waited 20 minutes more for the pizzas. Water bottler was not refilled and asked for ketchup twice for the egg sandwich. Maybe they were overwhelmed by... More

Amid a Jersey shore ambiance, just steps from the boardwalk, is Porta. This is a great place for friends to gather plus there is a huge room for parties available right off the dining room. Pizzas are unique and yummy, salads are large and fresh. You eat at long picnic style tables so large groups are easily accommodated. We were... More

Really crowded but the food was good! The waiters and waitresses kept switching and they had us pass them the plates which I found kind of odd and unprofessional. Overall, it wasn't bad.

Fantastic pizza and salads in a non descript building with lots of character. Looks like an old warehouse. Service was excellent with Emily. We had eggplant capo, bread with oil, ports ports pizza, near ball pizza and drinks. All excellent. A little pricey....$75.00 plus tip.

Ehhh I really wasn't sure how to review this place. I think a 3.5 would be perfect. The atmosphere is fun and trendy, and the menu has lots of great options. The crust of the pizzas are great, but the pizzas as a whole weren't good enough to give 4 or 5 stars. The Margherita was good, but I feel... More

Came for lunch. Waited over 15 minutes after being sat to get a hello and place a drink order. Salad came out fairly quickly. However no plates or silverware to put our salad on. Took over an hour for our bar pie to come out. Service was horrific. Wouldn't recommend coming here.
