Porta Asbury Park is primarily a walk-in restaurant. For brunch, lunch, and dinner, we accept call-aheads 24 hours in advance for a la carte dining of up to 15 guests. This places you on a priority waitlist, so, if there is a wait when you arrive at the restaurant, you are sat before other walk-ins.

For parties larger than 15, please call us at 732-776-7661 or email our Event Sales Manager, Chandler Vogel, at


Porta Asbury Park lives in the former home of the once-famous Student Prince, where Springsteen first met the indomitable Clarence Clemons (RIP Big Man). Bootstrapped from the ground up in 2011, the original Porta earned an Excellent rating from The New York Times in 2013 and has become a destination for locals, New Yorkers, and the jet-set crowd, and everyone else who wants to grab some of the best pizza in the country, take a selfie in front of the doors, and dance all night long. So no matter how bustling the restaurant gets, the space is, at its core, one big block party — full of family, authentic details and a whole lotta love.

Porta achieves a near miracle – making Italian food, a culinary staple in the Garden State – seem fresh and new.
