We order from here all the time (they know us by name.) This is the best pizza delivery maybe in all of Brooklyn, and we can vouch for the fresh, high-quality antipasto as well. I don't know why Il Porto is never named among the top pizza in the city. But the true measure of how great it is comes via my 5-year-old niece, a notoriously picky eater. She wolfed down two slices and still talks about how great it was. Couldn't agree more.

The service was terrible and the decor was JUST OK. I went there and I overheard the manager addressing his staff in the most utterly disrespectful manner! He treated his female wait staff with contempt that seemed redolent of sexism! I didn't like that AT ALL. I can't eat at a place that treats their workers like expendable objects.

Well above average Italian standards in industrial Clinton Hill/Wallabout/Navy Yards. Great decor and atmosphere, impeccable service. Great beer selection- any place that has multiple Sixpoints, as well as Sweet Action on tap, gets my vote. The risotto and Fettuccinne Grassodonia (crabmeat with fra diablo sauce) were both well executed. We had a margherita pizza to start, perfect size for an app. I don't always love the 'guy with a keyboard singing Italian songs' style entertainment they had, but this guy's voice was amazing, and he kept it low enough that everyone could talk. I cannot believe how empty it was- we got there around 8:30, and by the time we left at quarter after 10:00, no one else was in the restaurant. I will definitely come back for food and also to sit at the bar- Sweet Action's fairly priced at $6, and they had football on, for which my fiance was grateful. If you have access to transportation or live nearby, def worth your time.
