February 2020 Notes
New menu items. New Events.
Portico is a modern trattoria; a social place, no reservations taken, limited table service, modest prices, authentic Italian food made by hand. Portico promotes human connection inspired by Italy's aperitivo hour.
Valentine's Day, Carnevale, Italian Social Club
We consider Valentines Day a day of universal love, much like the tradition school children have in which everyone in class gives and receives a card and candy! We hope you'll join us, even though we do not decorate in red, create a special menu, and do not take reservations as always. Everyone is welcome; families, solos, friends, and couples.
This Friday we will have an Italian singer and acoustic guitarist stroll through from the Don Giovanni's music group. Wow what a voice this guy has! We will have a couple of new menu specials too. We have also added a selection of risotto to our menu; several are vegan.
Saturday, February 22nd, in celebration of Carnevale, we will have some entertainment from 5-9pm; wine cocktail tasting with the owner of Jardesca (5-7), live music from several artists throughout the evening, and a little performance art. Join us!
We will be starting up Italian Social Club in March, ongoing every first Wednesday. From 5-7 pm we will have social time inspired by speakers regarding Italian travel and culture, and cooking demonstrations. We plan to project classic Italian films in the background sometimes too:). Stay tuned.
