The just-opened Porto Fino Ristorante brings breezy style and Italian-American favorites to downtown Huntington, where it's already becoming a popular stop pre-and-post showtime at The Paramount.
This bright, casual eatery is situated on a corner diagonally across from the concert venue. You'll find appetizers and soups ranging from crabcakes to chicken wings, pasta e fagioli to escarole and beans. Main courses go from Parmigianas, Marsalas and piccatas to broiled branzino. Count on 33 pastas.
And the pizzas take in varieties such as lasagna (yes, lasagna toppings with ground meat and cheese), chicken alla vodka, and the “baconator” with a chicken cutlet in the mix. There are personal pan pies, and Neapolitan, Sicilian and Grandma pizzas, too, plus calzones, rolls and stuffed garlic knots.
Price range: Appetizers, $2.50 to $12.25; soups, $4.95 to $5.75; salads, $6.25 to $10.95; pastas, $10.95 to $14.95; main courses, $13.50 to $18.95; pizzas, $5.95 for personal pan pie to $29.95 for deep-dish seafood pizza.
