The food at this restaurant was very good and it was a nice environment. Three of the four of us ennjoyed our meals. Our waiter (Mario I believe) was pleasant. That being said we will not go back. My husband clearly ordered (we all heard him) Chicken Romano. When our meals came his meal was in a gravy like mushroomy... More

My parents were in from out of town and found this place! Absolutely raved about how delicious it was and how much they enjoyed dining here - so they took me back! YUM! So authentic and delicious!!! They are still talking about it now they are back home in Ohio!

I've been to Il Porto a few times... typically for lunch... and I've never been disappointed. The service is spot on - attentive yet not rushed at all. The food is consistently good. And the drinks are well made (I love the Sangria!). With so many choices in Frederick, don't miss the opportunity to visit Il Porto!

My daughter had her wedding rehearsal dinner at Il Porto. From start to finish we had some of the most authentic, finely prepared Italian food in the area. Wine recommendations were spot on and reasonably priced. Calamari appetizers and antipasto platters were joined by melt in your mouth freshly made Italian bread. Our group ordered off the menu. Everything from... More

Knowing a little of Civil War history, we decided to stay here while visiting family in DC. On our first night in Frederick, we asked the owner of the 10 Clarke Place B and B (a great place to stay worthy of a separate review) for a dining recommendation within walking distance. Less than 5 minutes walking from our accommodations... More

On our way home to Gettysburg after picking my wife up at the airport, we did a quick Google search for Italian restaurants in Frederick. Il Porto showed up and, thanks to modern technology, we drove straight to the place for a late lunch/early dinner. We were greeted by a gentleman we assumed to be the owner and he set... More

We visited on a weekend for dinner I was with a small group of friends and when we ordered our meals, the server asked if we wanted soup or salad. So we ordered our preferences assuming that like most places, it came with our meal. Nope, we were billed for each item individually. It wasn't a huge expense, but we... More

Just ate here Sat night. We live downtown and frequent many restaurants, but Il Porto never disappoints. They are consistent in offering great tasting food! We started off with a fabulous martini and a glass of wine with a crab dip appetizer, while we waited for a table. I suggest you make a reservation otherwise, especially if you are visiting... More

Ate here twice this week, with local friends and out of town guests. Everyone was very pleased. Pasta is wonderful and they also have a nice selection of seafood with daily specials.
