Portovivo (Huntington) - I'd give it 3.5 stars

I couldn't find a review of this on here so I am starting this thread. We have eaten here twice now in the last 5 months or so and have enjoyed it both times. The first time we were there i had pork chops, which were large, but very tasty, as i recall. Our most recent visit this week I had pork again (big surprise) which i couldn't even finish. It was a shank this time so a little different. for starters i had the mushroom veloute with raviolis. This was really good as well. Mrs. Strongisland had the skate which was tasty, according to her. Also, enjoyed a couple of drinks at the bar which was pretty busy but we found the bar staff to be very helpful.

Price-wise i had no complaints last night since it was (unbeknownst to me) Long Island restaurant week. On my other visit i recall thinking it was on the higher end of things in Huntington. And of course as soon as you start hitting the wine it really adds up (i.e $14 a glass)

So few complaints from us when we have been there. One negative i like to pin on places out here is when they try too much to be like the city. This place can be like that a bit but i haven't found it a detraction as of yet. Parking can be a pain as well as they have valet parking but I just assume park my own car even if i have to walk a bit.

What have others thought of this place?
