is it an outdoor patio bar in the summer? Is it a dance club? Is it a fine Italian pizzeria? Yes all of the above.

My friend had their rehersal dinner at Porta over the weekend. It was family style & in one of the side private rooms. We had our own bartenders/servers. The food was so good. They even package up some extras for us to take back to the hotel. Nice & laid back.

I intepreted the item I was about to order to be a pizza, and the waitress informed me it is more of a calzone. That's not a big deal for me, so I ordered it and was not disappointed. Don't be a dope and skip dessert. Get the chocolate gelato.

We wanted to try something new in the area but were very disappointed. First our friend ordered a Glenlivet on the rocks. When it came out he tasted lemon in the drink. The waitress was not helpful she just said "I didn't put lemon in it" right then we should have left. We stayed only to wait and wait and... More

Stopped in after an afternoon supporting the small businesses in Asbury. Short wait for a table. Had a drink at the bar. Bartender was great. After we were seated it was a bit of a wait for a server but she was great when she came over. Ordered a few pizzas. All were good except the Italian stallion. It came... More

We were nearby at the Silver Ball Museum and friends had recommended this place. It must have been a large warehouse of some sort at one time and converted into a really cozy Italian brick oven pizza/restaurant place. Very tasty selection of brick oven pizza, crust was on the thinner side, just the way we like it. The brick oven... More

We stopped here on our walk back to our Ocean Grove hotel. The martinis were awesome. The glasses of wine served in old school juice type glasses were great. The bartenders were very friendly. Main complaint: We ordered a little eggplant caponata to enjoy with our drinks. When it arrived, it was served with no bread. Just in a dish.... More
