Our waitress was terrible. No bread. No silverware. Our entrees came before the salads and only one order was correct. Long delay with the check. We will not be returning!

We love heading to the west side of town for Napoli style pizza. We like it so well, we've never tried anything else (other than the yummy gelato.

Porta Via has been a favorite of my husband and I for many years. However, we had not gotten to visit in at the last couple of years. While we were in Nashville, we decided to have lunch there. What a let down. Service was slow. I don't blame our server, who look like he was about to fall over... More

Many years ago, my husband and I had a favorite Italian restaurant on White Bridge Road, and every time we visited Nashville, we went there. Sadly, it went out of business, and we thought we were out of luck as far as Italian restaurants convenient to where we always stayed in Green Hills....UNTIL we tried Porta Via. What a great...

We had a couple in from out of town, but as the wife had grown up in Naples, Italy, I wanted to eat at an Italian restaurant with a varied menu and good TA reviews. After reviewing several, I chose Porta Via since it was only about 15 minutes from our house. Our friends shared the Insalata grande, I had... More

It had been awhile since I had this. Got take out spaghetti and meatballs which were good. My friend enjoyed his takeout of chicken parmesan. Large portion. Bread was really good too. Friendly service every time I've gone and always pretty crowded. Did a great job of packing our very large to go order.

Service was relatively prompt -- place was packed -- took a while to get bread after ordering drinks - bread was cheese bread (good). Bar had a good selection of Italian wines (best bet here) -- mixed drinks were fair -- sangria was odd but drinkable. Get the finer sized pasta - tended to be a bit overcooked. I got... More

We had lunch at Porta Via during a recent trip to Nashville with an old friend. My wife and I both tried their minestrone soup and turkey avocado Panini. While the Panini was really good, the soup was just short of incredible. Full of vegetables and flavor, I wanted to lick the bowl. Our friend had a salad with chicken,... More
