Il Porto Restaurant in Gaithersburg, MD

Il Porto Restaurant in Gaithersburg, MD is my family's favorite restaurant.  This is was once a well-kept secret, as it is obscurely located in a small shopping center, wedged betweenFront Exterior a nail salon and a gym on Muddy Branch Road.

Il Porto Restaurant is owned and managed by Alberto Cruz who seems to know ALL the customers by name - certainly because we are such a loyal bunch!  Besides the extremely varied and moderately priced menu, my husband and I particularly enjoy the friendly service and homey atmosphere.   The walls are beautifully painted and the little candles on the tables add some intimacy.  It's a great "date night" restaurant as well as a "bring the family" destination as you can almost eat cheaper there than at home!

Some of our favorite dishes are:

•·         White Pizza (fabulous appetizer!)

•·         Eggplant Parmigiana  (THE BEST)

•·         Shrimp in Garlic & Butter

•·         Pizza - delicious

•·         Tiramisu - YOU WILL BE HOOKED!

 

The red sauce that they use is now the standard by which we judge any other Italian restaurant.  Theirs is clearly the best - plenty of tomatoes, veggies, garlic - rich and delicious.  Did I mention the friendly service?  Well, I'll mention it again.  It's phenomenal!  Very attentive and personal without smothering. 

Alberto CruzWe like to go early - around 5:30 pm on a Friday night.  It's pretty quiet and sometimes we're the first ones there.  By the time we leave (around 7:00 pm), people are lined up at the door waiting to be seated.

Il Porto Restaurant in Gaithersburg, MD is located at 245 Muddy Branch Road in a hole-in-the-wall shopping center called Muddy Branch Festival.
