 Il Portico is located on Walnut Street, Philadelphia's upscale restaurant row. You enter into the bar and hear the warm sounds of Italian music. You smell the fresh breads baking in the downstairs oven. The staff, dressed in formal attire is busy gesturing and speaking to one another in their native tongue.  

 This isn't a show, it's the real thing. The décor is a palate of deep burgundy, enhanced with dark mahogany woods, renaissance art and lavish chandeliers. One wall of the dining room houses a wine cabinet with the finest Italian vintages, the other is a long  red brick wall. A large Palladian window overlooking Walnut Street makes the entire room shine and gives a first class view of the cosmopolitan scene below. 

The finest ingredients offer a true Tuscan experience. Many are imported directly from Italy. In fact, a signature style of the restaurant  is the use of truffles.
