Modern take on 'Old Italian' style restaurant with the ambiance of a port tavern of a bygone era at a great budget.
Porto Salvo is the newest interpretation of Old Italian style cookery lead by executive chef Luigi Ghidetti. The restaurant has the ambiance of an old Italian port tavern, featuring local draft beers and Ombra (specially selected house red and house white) at a great budget. Located in the most vibrant and diverse neighborhood of South Bronx, Porto Salvo is right near the Bronx Court House, 3rd Avenue retail HUB and walking distance from Yankee Stadium
In addition, an extensive list of European wines will certainly bring the flavor of Italy and Spain to your taste buds. Before you decide between classic and special cocktails, you should also notice the ship engine telegraph alongside of the Captain’s wheel. Sharing small plates such as grandma style veal meatballs and house-made crab cakes is encouraged here just like back in Terracina, Italy. And there is NO TV or WIFI available to guests, so pretend it is 1991 and talk to the beautiful person across from or next to you. Whether you are a new transplant to the South Bronx or a Melrose “Mayor,” please prepare to enjoy the baby octopus ragu with homemade spaghetti and Sicilian style grilled salmon in Salmoriglio sauce. Afterwards you might look at the boxed pastas and jarred sauces in your kitchen cabinet differently. Strong espresso might not steal your love for the Cappuccino, but you must try the pannacotta. A little fresco and dolce yet not overdone can linger on your tongue and in your mind for quite a while.
