This was our second time this year visiting La Porta and our dinner tonight was as good as our first was back in March. Service and selection were excellent, the food was tasty and impeccably prepared. We will be back again next Spring, God-willing!

Description
A new restaurant in this unspoiled mediaeval hill town. It is run by Deborah, the charming daughter of Daria, owner of Monticchiello's famed La Porta. I hosted a wedding eve dinner there on July 7th - the first big party Deborah had catered. The food, wine, service and ambience were ll outstanding. I can't praise the generosity of spirit which animated the whole event highly enough.
