Today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Italian fare at Al Porto Ristorante in Gastown.

A fanciful, haute cuisine haven, Al Porto whisks palates on a polished journey through traditional Italian fare amidst a warm, rustic interior. House specialties include wood-fired pizza prepped with in-house dough and tomato sauce, and bedecked with such flavour combinations as the Giovanni, with mozzarella, chicken, feta, pesto, and tomato ($10.95). Diners disdainful of discuses can opt for heartier dishes, such as the herb-dijon-encrusted lamb with rosemary demi sauce ($27.95) or the seared halibut with tarragon and lemon butter sauce ($23.95). Fortify your feast with an intoxicating moat—Al Porto’s offers a dizzying array of fine Italian and global wines. Otherwise, wrap up a meal in more style than Sofia Loren’s butler with such shareable desserts as the chocolate ganache torte ($6.95) or gelato freso ($6.95).

The main dining room features mosaic tiles, terra cotta arches, and colourful murals of Tuscan pastoralia, well-suited for a romantic evening of eyelash fluttering and nostril wiggling. Regal recluses can also settle into the sunny, spacious loft, with elegant eggshell walls and a private bar. Situated near the waterfront, satiated saturnaliasts can meander through the surrounding environs for languid window-shopping or a romantic stroll through Portside Park.

More than 70 OpenTable reviewers, more than 30 DineHere users, and more than 20 Yelpers give Al Porto Ristorante an average of 3.5 stars. Sixty-one per cent of more than 100 Urbanspooners recommend the restaurant.
