Had dinner there a few weeks ago and as always the food and service was excellent. Best eggplant parmigiana I have ever had, and being Italian I pride myself on knowing my Italian food! It was fresh and seasoned to perfection, perfect amount of sauce and cheese. My only complaint was the temperature in the restaurant itself, so cold. Moved... More

Always love a lunch visit with Ozzie & Caroline! OMG, Ozzie can cook. I've always been very impressed and the food is served piping hot. I had the gnocchi and my buddy had the lasagne. Absolutely incredible, the very best lasagna ever!! Moderately priced but very high quality food!! I consistently recommend this place to my friends and all reports... More

My friend and I dined here last night. To start with our waitress kept calling us Dear. A bad start. The White House wine is good. My friend ordered veal parm with no extra sauce and Alfredo pasta. She got tough chicken parm. I ordered veal piccata which came floating in sauce. The waitress was told about the mistake and... More

We've reviewed La Porto A Casa previously, but not for a while. It continues to offer the same quality of homemade Italian food. I love the spicy salsiccia calabrese and my husband loves the veal gorgonzola. Friendly, busy, casual, reliable. Good washrooms (are always important). Good, free parking. You must make reservations for supper, any night of the week. On... More

We went to La Porto a Casa for dinner with friends. It was our fourth time having dinner there, their first. The restaurant was full. We all enjoyed our dinners. To start, 3 of us had Caesar salads, one a Greek salad. You get a very nice-sized Caesar salad for $5. For main courses, I had linguine alle pescatore, my... More

One of my fave restaurants. Sooooo good. Don't try to get in without a reservation. Absolutely to die for. Pork tenderloin Barolo is amazing. So is the prosciutto chicken dish. Friendly staff. Family owned. Fresh home cooking.

If you enjoy delicious Italian food... try La Porto A Casa! The store front is not flashy, the décor is not posh, but the food is delicious. Via word of mouth Ozzie and Caroline have established a loyal and well deserved clientele. My family's only problem is that we have each picked a favorite menu item that we like so... More

My first time there. Is a pleasant restaurant.... The food is in a fair amount enough to share a plate if you have small stomach. The server didn't always come to our table and we had to go up and talk to her. Maybe I will go back during lunch hour because the lights inside the restaurant are too dark... More

My experience was excellent!!! I have been there 5 times in 2 months. The food is so authentic and genuine to the italian cusine and heritage. I order the pasta Caruso for the main meal and the friend smelts being the appetizer. The penne Caruso is delicious with colorful peppers and italian sausage. All penne pastas can be made gluten...
