The food was delicious and the party in the back room was an awesome experience but the service was crappy. We had a reservation and they still ATTEMPTED to make us wait hours and the wait staff was extremely busy. Still worth it, I'd go there again.

You want a cocktail off of the strip of Asbury Park that is top shelf or maybe a casual beer and some of the best pizza you'll ever eat, this is the place. Porta is eclectic in it's style, yet basic enough to stroll in off of the beach. It works all the way around from the outside arrangement for social gatherings to the bench seat tables on the inside. The pizza sells the rest. Porta perfect.

If there is a wait, sit at the bar. Always a fun scene with great interesting cocktails and tap beers. Finally a place to go where drinks are good, pizza yummy and the scene friendly. Terrific mix of beach, shore, local characters, kids playing bocce, music. Have grilled octopus. Nice waitstaff too.
Don't forget to feed the parking meters.

porta is a unique restaurant in a warehouse/picnic atmosphere. nice large bar, good food choices & quick tasty pizzas. the only negative with my visit was a rather inattentive bartender.
