Valentines Day 2016, Il Porto, Frederick MD

OK; so I called too late for Valentines Day and they still took reservations for me and my favorite dining partner, my wife. The movie ended earlier than we anticipated; Deadpool go see it-you will not be disappointed. We arrived at Il Porto well before our designated time. The staff still managed to seat us after a very short wait at the bar. Did I mention this was Valentines Day and that Il Porto was packed?

At the bar we asked the bartender to pick a glass of wine for us. He poured us each a glass of  Gabbiano Solatio a blend of Syrah, Cabernet and Sangiovese. This wine is reasonably priced with a mellow start, berries in the  middle, and very long smooth finish. The bottle talks about tobacco although in truth I didn't get that. It was a nice drinkable glass of wine so we ordered a bottle when we got to our table.

I need to state that the service was exceptional throughout the entire meal. It was Valentines Day and we will certainly be going back to Il Porto; regardless, the place was packed and yet we received very personal attention throughout our entire meal. This was no easy feat considering that each server had many tables. Well done to the entire staff.
