“Love is the master key that opens the gates of happiness.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes

We are in the business of making memories that will last a lifetime. Il porto has been open since 1973, and since then we have seen many happy couples fall in love. We are always honored when someone allows us to host their wedding or rehearsal dinner. It gives us great pride when couples return to Il Porto and tell us about the wonderful memories that they made at our establishment. There is nothing more heart warming than hearing two people recount one of the happiest days of their lives.

Perfect Pitch

My name is Alexander Lopez and Il Porto Ristorante has played a very influential role in my life. My father has worked at Il Porto for over 30 years. When I was younger, I would hug my dad after he got home from work and loved how he smelled of Italian food. After church, my family used to visit him at Il Porto Ristorante. I would always get chicken fingers with a side of spaghetti. As a teenager, I got my first job as a busboy. Seven years later, I am now the Social Media Manager. I am also a student at The College of William and Mary and one of my final projects is about Il Porto. I wanted to share how working at Il Porto has shaped me as a person and prepared me for my future. I hope you all enjoy!

The man behind the magic, Chef Miguel. Ever since he was a young boy cooking has been one of his passions. At the age of 10 he started working alongside his brother in a bakery back home in El Salvador. Miguel joined the Il Porto family in 2006 and was made head chef in 2013. He has never failed to awe customers with his innovative recipes mixed with a northern Italian style of cooking. Come by and try one of his delicious signature specials. Thank you for everything Miguel!
