What Our Clients Say

My personal experience is from my frequent visits to IL Porto in Brooklyn, NY, and the fact that I am one of the vocal entertainers there on most weekends with a duo or trio, and one whom all the customers admire and enjoy. I am a true witness to the delicious Italian dishes that I have tasted. Each dish is always beautifully prepared, plentiful, fresh, the sauces are absolutely authentic Italian tastes, and there's a wide variety of Brick Oven baked pizzas, and wraps. I've never heard one bad complaint out of all the years of going there. The atmosphere is friendly and pleasant although the place is quaint and small. And, the service is reasonably good when it's not too overwhelmingly crowded...which it gets from time to time. But, it's worth the wait...if you're not real hungry! ☺️ Everyone who has visited this spot will willfully return to enjoy more of IL Porto Italian Ristorante - 37 Washington Ave., Brooklyn, NY. There is eat in, take out, and delivery. During good weather .. eat @outdoor tables. Vegetarian options: There are vegetarian options but don't know the specifics cause I never order from that catagory. Kid-friendliness: Kids seem to really enjoy the pizzas.
Amazing Authentic Italian food nestled in Clinton Hill Brooklyn. Live jazz on Fridays and Saturdays from 7 to 10. Their menu offers fresh homemade pasta and wood fired Pizza. Definitely a must try place. The atmosphere is so nice and outdoor patio seating is available. You must check it out. Vegetarian options: How many vegetarian options.

Great place for a quick slice of Pizza or a nice dinner (2 sections of the restaurant). Great pizza. Pastas are good too. Spinach Salad is my favorite. On weekends music by Charlie makes for a great atmosphere.

I have been to many Italian restaurants all across the city. I put IL Porto in with the best of them. If you are looking for an Italian restaurant in downtown Brooklyn, I honestly believe you can’t find better. The atmosphere is relaxed, the portions generous and the taste consistently great. Over the past 13 years I have ordered takeout, dined in the restaurant with my immediate family and held parties there with my extended family, not once have I ever been disappointed. Unlike some restaurants where they are pulling the plate away from you before you have taken the last bite, the relaxed atmosphere allows you to enjoy the food and the company you are with. Regardless of what appetizer, entree, or dessert I have chosen, it has always been a delight.
