Founded in 1989, Belle Meade’s Porta Via Ristorante e Bar serves the area’s finest, authentic Italian cuisine, featuring fresh-made pastas, sauces, and soups; wood-fired Neapolitan pizza; house-made gelato; and an extensive selection of wines, spirits, liqueurs, and amari.
At The Greenway Plaza on bustling White Bridge Road, Porta Via’s bright red vestibule differentiates the restaurant from its retail neighbors, and beckons guests to enter. Inside, you will discover a quaint, yet sophisticated dining area with a warm and distinctly Italian ambiance. On the upper level, comfortable booths with cherry tabletops are surrounded by Florentine plaster walls, a classic Italian pergola, and an eye-catching, open pizza kitchen. On the lower level, a marble tiled wishing fountain provides the perfect complement to the welcoming, full-service bar.
