“A Neighborhood Gem” – La Porta Rossa
La Porta Rossa: One of Opentable.com’s 10 “Neighborhood Gems” in the Tampa Bay area.
Awards and recognition are piling up like pasta for La Porta Rossa, Lakeland’s premier eatery.
The prestigious restaurant reservation website Opentable.com recently named LPR one of its 10 “Neighborhood Gems” for the Tampa Bay area. We’re the only Lakeland restaurant to earn that distinction, which reflects the per dollar value of the culinary experience.
This Opentable.com honor is no fluke. It’s the product of hard work and creativity by a dedicated staff. In addition to Opentable’s high praise, LPR was recently dubbed “best food in town” at Explorations V Children’s Museum’s Annual Night of the Museum event where guests sampled flavors from many local restaurants and voted for their favorite. Rave reviews of La Porta Rossa’s fare have also shown up in local and regional magazines.
This recognition shows that under the direction of Executive Chef Patrick Rene Schaefer, La Porta Rossa sets a new standard for dining in Lakeland. In just our 1st year of operations, we have become the go-to spot for Lakeland’s most discerning foodies, a place where you go for a gourmet experience or classic Mediterranean fare. We also offer Happy Hour weeknights from 5-7 and our Wine’d Down Wednesdays with live music, food samplings, wine, and beer for just $20.00.
So, if you haven’t given us a try yet, come by La Porta Rossa to see what the buzz is all about. La Porta Rossa promises an unparalleled culinary experience and the happiness of sharing good food and spirits with friends.
And if you’re a regular, thanks for joining on this adventure. We owe our success to you.
