We are pleased to report that we were not disappointed on both fronts. As a result, “Porto Vivo” has earned our “Fantastic LI Restaurant Experience” designation and SoMuchSavings has earned our sincere respect as an organization that gives back to those in need.

Patrons will be treated as private house guests of Porto Vivo inside the Wine Cellar (the type of guest that may get to try something the chef’s been working on in private…shhh!).

Their menu is diverse, chef's culinary skills professional, and their commitment to your “taste-bud” enjoyment, not questioned. "Porto Vivo" has earned the designation of a PZ Cuisine “Fantastic LI Restaurant Experience” establishment.
