Private Parties

Il Porto Ristorante offers the only private party room in Old Town Alexandria with innovative Italian fare, a focus on amazing wines at a value and views of historic Old Town.

And, speaking of history, if these walls could talk… learn more about the history of the building dating back to the civil war. Il Porto’s used to be the backdrop for Hollywood’s Johnny Maddox, who would tickle the ivories every night, late into the night. Johnny played the piano and was the cause of many sing-a-longs, in the now private party room that still has all the charm of the earlier years, but with all the modern amenities and comfort of today.

We can accommodate up to 100 people, complete with your own bar and service staff.

Below, please find a sample menu. However, we customize each menu according to your budget and tastes. If it is Italian, we can make it! Learn More about Chef Miguel Ferman.
