Translated from Italian, Porta Via means ”take out”. The restaurant quickly became a household name in surrounding Nashville neighborhoods as the most authentic “take away” Italian dining experience.

In addition to the original Northern Italian recipes shared in the Bellevue location, Porta Via now offers authentic certified Neapolitan, wood-fired pizza. Verace Pizza Napoletana or (VPN) pizza is made to the strictest of standards; using only native Italian ingredients, baked in a wood fired dome oven at the required time and temperature.

members, but now we move to the faraway Norway, precisely on the cold sea of
Kristiansand to deliver, in May, the first Norwegian label to "Villa
Marina" in which team there is Tommaso
Mastromatteo, Maestro AVPN. read more
