Fodor's Review

Inside an old building just one block from the Potomac, Il Porto's interior is reminiscent of Italy, with plaster walls, exposed wooden beams, and checkered tablecloths. The menu includes traditional Italian versions of veal, seafood, pasta, and chicken, and creative interpretations such as Paradiso Terra e Mare (chicken, shrimp, scallops, and chopped clams in white-wine-and-lemon sauce). Healthful touches include whole-wheat pasta and organic wines.
