The staff is friendly and welcoming. Clearly, this place has regular customers. The portions are enormous, and the food is tasty if not terribly inspired. The wall murals in the back dining room are shockingly overwhelming. I'd return for the ambiance.

This place has really great Italian food. And I am Italian, so if I go out for Italian food, I am fussy.Walk into the bar and you feel like Frank Sinatra should be sitting on a stool. My favorite appetizer is the cold seafood salad. It's huge so often ,I order it as a meal. The pasta dishes are delicious... More

Very large portions, and attentive service. Place could use an upgrade, but that speaks to how good the food is.

This place is awesome! The staff is good and the owner stops by to chat. The highlight though is definitely the food. It is quite possibly the best Italian food I've ever had. Bonus: the plates are so huge that I had 3 meals out of the one dish.

I had dinner here with five other people. We chose a variety of entrees from the menu. The food came with sides, as well as a large dish of pasta and a salad with a choice of homemade dressings. I chose a chicken dish with a butter cream sauce, with raisins and oranges. It was like a dish from a... More

A lovely birthday celebratory meal at Lo Porto. The atmosphere is cozy, and even though it was our first visit we felt welcomed like old friends. Our meal was top-notch from sweet, fresh from the sea oysters for starters to our entrees - both new picks for my companion and I. Had the Seafood Saute Mugnaia - abundant with fresh... More

It's been quite awhile since I've had the pleasure of dining at Loporto's Restaurant in Troy and boy have I missed it. I had the chicken Milanese and my Mother had the Veal Guiseppe both dishes were phenominal. I called talk all day about how fabulous their bread dipping oil too. I cannot wait to go back.
