'The owners of The Diamondback Tavern have partnered with new investors in a separate venture called 'Portalli's' which will be located in historic Ellicott City where Jordan's Steakhouse used to be. Portalli's will be an Italian restaurant with a good mix of unique cutting edge preparations as well as classic Italian favorites. The name 'Portalli' comes from the maternal family of Evan Brown, one of the owners who will also serve as Director of Operations. Local chef Keith Holsey will be running the kitchen, and while the menu is still being developed, we plan on incorporating everything we love about Italian cuisine from all areas of Italy including several traditional Portalli family dishes. The goal is to create an Italian dining destination that will have enough originality and creativity for foodies, but will also be approachable for the casual diner or families looking for a fun night out.'- Lee Biars (owner of Ellicott City's Diamondback Tavern)

"This was our first time here and we were more than impressed. I noted in my reservation that we'd like to be by the window and the hostess confirmed that on arrival and led us to the perfect table. Our server, Rob, was amazing. Greeted us immediately, beautiful wine presentation, and timed our food arrival along with everything else perfectly. Food was delicious, perfectly done and we just felt right at home here. Ambiance lovely. We were here to celebrate a special anniversary, and our perfect dinner at Portalli's made it even more beautiful."
