This was a warm and welcoming restaurant. a good, if not extensive winelist and very good food, nicely presented. A warning to beef eaters... steak in Italy is really, really rare. Stick with the pasta!

Stopped here for lunch. First went to Ristorante de Mario (the #1 rated spot), but was turned off by how noisy it was and the lack of service. La Porta di Sotto was much calmer and the food fantastic: had the zucchini flower risotto ... sublime! Highly recommended!

We had the homemade pasta and a risotto. Both dishes were the special of the day and was very tasty. The service was very friendly.

We dined here a few evenings ago and the food and service were both amazing. We had 2 young children and they were well catered for. My daughter was able to have a smaller portion of spaghetti vongole and it was beautiful. Staff were great and really friendly. Thank you for a lovely evening.

We ate here two evenings in a row. Food was good and service excellent. We sat outside in alleyway which is great. Recommended to book as they were full on a friday evening, but managed to make room For us for a quick meal with a 6 year old. Not the cheapest but good value. And the wine was excellent.... More
