About Us

The Al Porto Experience

What makes us special

Al Porto is one of the leading Italian restaurants in the Hull area – or indeed the north of England! Established 7 years ago, the new management took over in September 2018 and has brought a new and exciting lease of life to the restaurant and introduced a beautiful new Cocktail Bar.

Diners will not only see a more up-market decor but the new menu features some really incredible dishes that would not be out of place in some of the country’s leading restaurants. Enjoy our delicious cocktails before your meal – or on their own, as the bar is open to non-diners too.

Our website features just a selection of these amazing dishes, and together with the main Menu seen here, there is always a Daily Specials board with something to tempt even the most discerning diner.
