Laporta's Restaurant follows the creative lead of executive chef and owner Douglas Laporta's desire to create a place for extraordinary food in a casual, comfortable setting, perfect for relaxing with friends. Laporta's has an attentively serviced contemporary dining room perfect for a romantic evening out, special occasion or private party, combined with an adjoining intimate Jazz lounge to decompress after work or just while the evening away. Sip a strawberry mojito or one of the many other made from scratch cocktails from our extensive drink list, relax and listen to the live jazz featured nightly. The lounge has the warmth and friendly feel of a locals bar yet with the same excellence of service and consistency of food quality that defines our dining room and exemplifies the restaurant as a whole. The menu features inventive fresh seafoods and hearty pastas complemented by the provincial-style desserts of Margaret Laporta. Their culinary skills, combined with a delightfully warm atmosphere, make for the perfect dining experience.
