Media's La Porta Reveals Full Menu

The chef behind Modo Mio, Paesano’s and Monsu brings his Italian specialties to Media, and we’ve got a sneak peek at the new menu.

We’ve been talking about Modo Mio, Paesano’s and Monsu chef Peter McAndrews’ latest restaurant, La Porta, since we got word of the snack-and-pizza-driven eatery months ago. And it looks like the restaurant is just days away from officially opening!

The restaurant is located just on the outskirts of Media, off of Route 352 in the old Locust Crest Tavern location at 1192 N. Middletown Road. McAndrews’ newest restaurant focuses on brick oven-baked pizza but the menu also has lots of “spuntini,” or snacks, salads and pasta dishes. Have a look for yourself!
