About Porta Jersey City


Porta in Asbury Park opened in summer 2011 and we have just opened our Jersey City location in November 2014. Porta is an authentic Neapolitan pizza restaurant created by Smith. Its name comes from an old Italian proverb about a would-be monk named Martin who was told to write the Latin phrases, “Porta patens esto. Nulli claudatur honesto.” (translated: “May the door always be open. May it never be closed to any honest person.”)

Instead of writing this, however, Martin mistakenly put the period in the wrong place, creating a completely different meaning. The story symbolizes how the details make all the difference. At Porta, we are committed to these details. From making our mozzarella in-house daily to sourcing our ingredients from local vendors, our focus on quality and freshness is second to none.

Due to this seasonal focus, our menus change often. You will be the first to be notified of any changes to our menus and if these changes conflict with your dining selections.

We look forward to having you in our home.
Eat, Drink, Be Honest.
