Il Portico is located on Walnut Street, Philadelphia's upscale restaurant row. You enter into the bar and hear the warm sounds of Italian music. You smell the fresh breads baking in the downstairs oven. The staff, dressed in formal attire is busy gesturing and speaking to one another in their native tongue. The finest ingredients offer a true Tuscan experience. Many are imported directly from Italy. In fact, a signature style of the restaurant is the use of truffles.
