I had an opportunity to stop into Il Porto today for a quick lunch and I came away highly impressed. No photos, sadly, as I didn't have my camera with me, but CHB has some great pics they took during there visit a couple of weeks ago.
There's still no liquor license, so we stuck with plain ole' water, but they plan to have it as soon as they can. Tamboril had some issues getting theirs in a timely manner and I hope Il Porto doesn't run into the same problems.
We tried two of the small pizzas, the Marinara and the Al Diavolo. The Marinara is a simple pizza with tomato sauce, basil, oregano, and basil. The garlic is very fresh, and the pizza was great, although I prefer my pizzas with cheese.
The Al Diavolo is a bit more robust, with broccoli rabe, sausage, hot cherry peppers, and pepperoncini. Very tasty and very good, especially with the fresh mozarella. The rabe was a little overpowering, though, so don't get it unless you really like broccoli (which I do).
Both pizzas were $10, so the check was very manageable.
Il Porto is a great addition to the neighborhood, and I can't wait to go back. They also deliver!
Update: I ordered delivery recently and gave it a more robust writeup.
