Dinner at il Porto Restaurant in Gaithersburg, Maryland

 

Chef Dolores wanted some Italian food and we decided to have dinner at il Porto Restaurant in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Both of us had the Shrimp Fra Diavola. The service was good, Marvin was our server, and the food was delicious. We had the house chardonnay which was probably Woodbridge wine. Click on the link to view the menu.

Good morning, Roy... you'll always get my attention with an Italian restaurant. I'd go for the baked ziti, as I rarely see it on menus these days (kind of a NY Italian staple).

Sounds like a great restaurant. I did not check on the menu because it is too early for me to think of lunch or dinner. I love Italian food.

I had never heard of that dish before, so had to search for a recipe.  I found this one by Giada DeLaurentis.  I also found that one of my favorite restaurants, "Buca Di Beppo" has it:
