The hostess seemed confused. The young woman who set up the table for our family took an inordinate amount of time and then rearranged the seatings. The pizzas were short on toppings. All the food seemed overpriced. It was a very rainy day, a deluge...More

We headed to Asbury Park on a Sunday for lunch and weren't expecting too much. A friend had recommended we try PORTA and we were impressed. For starters, we tried both the fresh ricotta & fresh mozzarella made daily at the restaurant. The Ricotta was...More

Came here for lunch on a rainy Saturday. Just ordered a salad and a Pizza Margherita well done. Cavolo Nero salad was very tasty with nice spicy croutons. The Margherita came out undercooked the first time, and perfectly crispy as ordered the second time. Sauce...More

This is definitely one of my favorite places to go to have fresh brick oven pizza with delicious toppings. The master pizza maker Andre is the best. The restaurant itself is so unique and rustic sit down tables and an awesome bar. Sunday brunches are...More

If a group of about five or six getting together that have not seen each other in years, some of us drink and some don't which no doubt adds the bill, is it possible to get separate checks? The answer might impact if we can join here. Thank you.

Yup! Babies are totally fine in the early evening/late afternoon. It can get noisy in there, though, so keep that in mind. I myself don't have children but I have been with friends who brought their kids and had no issues.
