Porta Bella Restaurant

Established in 1968, Porta Bella has been known for its fresh pasta, homemade Italian dinners, pizza, steaks and seafood. Recipes that came from Madison's Greenbush are still offered today in addition to new regional Italian dishes found during our travels to Madison's sister city, Mantova, Italy. Cozy, upholstered booths were placed into small rooms to create a casual romantic atmosphere. Many first dates, anniversaries and engagements have occurred in our three distinctive dining rooms. Porta Bella has been voted "Most romantic" and " Best Italian restaurant" by the Madison area population for 17 years in a row. Looking for a casual place for drinks or dinner? Travel down the front steps to visit our wine cellar, where 30 wines by the glass, Porta's signature martinis and 14 draft beers await you. Many of the Italian wines were selected by our owner during his recent Italian visit with our wine makers. Enjoy your favorite drink along with our full dinner menu. What is more romantic than a wedding rehearsal or reception. Check out Porta's newest addition, the Mantova room. Porta Bella has banquet and conference facilities for parties of 20 to 180 guests. Having a party at your home or office? Porta Bella now offers catering. Please visit our website, portabellarestaurant.biz, for banquet and catering information.
