Laporta’s restaurant is the ideal place for extraordinary food in a casual, comfortable setting. Laporta’s has an attentively serviced contemporary dining room perfect for a romantic evening out or any other special occasion, combined with an adjoining intimate Jazz lounge. Relax and listen to the live jazz featured nightly. The lounge has the warmth and friendly feel of a local’s bar yet with the same excellence of service and consistency of food quality that defines our dining room and exemplifies the restaurant as a whole. The menu features inventive fresh seafoods and hearty pastas complemented by the provincial-style desserts of Margaret Laporta.

"Glad I made the trip into Alexandria. One diner's pasta special was terrific, another cleaned her plate (literally) of the stuffed chicken breasts, and my Laporta's pasta (traditional penne with italian sausage, peppers and a very light tomato sauce) was just perfect. Laporta's gives you the option of ordering the pasta dishes as appetizers. Caesar salad was also just right -- not huge and not overly dressed. Atmosphere very conducive to conversation with jazz in the background. The tables are set far enough apart so you don't feel like you're sitting in a neighboring diner's lap. One of the few places in the area that has live music (jazz) in the evenings and weekends. Definitely worth a trip -- and only a few blocks from Metro."
