Great food & staff 6/15/2004

Our first visit was over 4 years ago and we still enjoy every meal and every visit. The owner and staff are so accomadating and many dishes are prepared to our liking. And the prices are so reasonable for the quality and portions. more

Porta Rossa, neighborhood place 5/23/2003

This place is great! This is your quint essential NYC, old school Italian where the host knows his customers by name, treats them well and will prepare almost anything for them. It is a quiet, romantic place. The staff is attentive and friendly. The food is exceptional and the price is reasonable. What can be better than old school NYC Italian. It is definitely worth a trip to Murrray Hill to check it out Pros: The Food, Host/service, quiet Cons: location more

Good But Far From The Best 2/7/2003

The food at Porta Rossa was very good. Everyone in our party of 8 was very happy with their food. Service was very friendly, accommodating, but inept. The chef will prepare anything you want, on the menu or not. Anything extra, not originally asked for when you ordered, could not be obtained. The server never re-filled our wine glasses, nor did he ask if we wanted another bottle (which we did). Additionally, we ordered after-dinner drinks that never arrived, despite several pleas that they come before dessert ended. The dining room is very small but you were not piled on the other diners. The decor is fine and clean. All in all, the food is good, it's clean, but go on an off-day, not when their waiters aren't swamped with a full dining room. Pros: Good Food Cons: Sub-par Service, Small more

A Little Italian Secret 1/23/2003

I recently visited Porta Rossa for the first time. From the outside, the place seemed to blend in with the monotone of the other storefronts on the street, but once you walk inside, that all changes. Though space is a bit tight and a bit too dim-lighted, Porta Rossa has a cozy and warm interior that is nicely furnished with meticulous and well-chosen wall adornments. The wait staff was friendly and attentive, adding humor to our meal. The food was actually very good and came in large portions. It was comparable, if not, in some cases better than the food of some upscale restaurants where you would be paying almost twice the amount for the same dish. The overall dining experience Porta Rossa gave me is highly commendable and I would positively recommend visiting this hidden gem. more

Mm! Mm! Mm! 1/1/2003

This restaurant is the absolute best that I have ever been to. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is serene yet enjoyable, and the service is impeccable. I had the lobster soup which was very good and the snapper in a garlic and white wine sauce which was absolutely delicious. I give it TWO THUMBS UP!! more
