Porto boasts a large and beautiful patio space in the middle of Boston's Back Bay neighborhood. The menu is based on Mediterranean selections with a focus on Italy. Porto is located on Ring Road in Boston's Bay Bay, steps from the Prudential Center and Copley, next door to Saks Fifth Avenue.

Enjoy a lively meal in either of Porto's well appointed dining rooms, or indulge in a casual meal at the bar or kitchen counter seating, overlooking the oyster bar and open kitchen. Porto's one-of-a-kind outdoor patio and bar overlooks Ring Road with Boylston Street views, and serves as a Mediterranean oasis, right in the heart of Back Bay.

    The service was very slow. The scallops and the halibut were very good but the pasta was lackluster. For the price (over $100 per person for an entree and two drinks) I wouldn’t recommend it and likely won’t be back again.

    We ate in the outdoor patio, and it was pretty quiet. The food was delicious and the service was impeccalble. My only negative comment is that the portions were very small, especially for the prices they were charging.

    The food was absolutely unbelievable, as was the wine -- and the service. Our server Frankie made the experience a 5-star one for us. The dinner would have been great even if we hadn't had him as a server, but that we did made our whole night. Thank you, Frankie!

    Really, really good octopus. Nicely charred, served with smokey potatoes and a nice sauce. We both had the grilled halibut. I thought it was slightly over-seasoned, especially as halibut is such a great fish to grill on its own. Great cocktails, nice ambiance. We'll be back.

    Good food, great service, but it was really cold outside and although we asked for a table inside, they said they were fully committed — however, the inside never filled up as we sat outside huddled under a heater, eating quickly.

    This was our second visit -- a special occasion. Our waiter, Franky, was very knowledgeable about wine pairings -- in addition to being very friendly. There was appropriate distance between tables, and the noise level allowed for easy conversation. Dinner: oysters; seared scallops, lamb chops, pasta fra diavolo with shrimp were all excellent. Dessert was perfect: sorbet for one of us, and a new experience: Amaro nonino for two of us. This will be another 'special occasion' destination for us.

    Service was terrible. Sat 20 minutes before anyone (not even our waiter) came to our table. Truffle fries delivered 25 minutes prior to our entrees. Horrible service. Our waiter (who ended up not serving us because another waiter noticed that we were being ignored, didn’t come to our table until we had been seated for over half an hour.

    We were in patio which was lovely. Heating lamps were great. With the music playing, it was difficult for a foursome to hear each other well. He menu did not seem to have as many Italian/pasta offerings as pre-COVID unless our memories are faulty. Service was great & food very good.

    Scallops were amazing. Unfortunately, though, the servers were stuck up and no one talked to me from more than 5 minutes after being seated. Despite the restaurant being mostly empty! The kitchen staff are clearly talented, but the waiters need to learn professionalism.
