Tasting at Al Porto Ristorante

It’s quite the achievement when restaurants have been serving customers for over 15 years, it’s been at least that long since I had last visited Al Porto in Gastown. The restaurant was founded in 1978, with a few ownership and chefs changes over the years they are still going strong.
