LIVINGSTON, NJ — Porto by Antonio, a new Neopolitan Wood Burning Pizza & Pasta restaurant located at 471 W. Mt. Pleasant Ave., held a preview party on Wednesday, June 22, for local businesses and professionals. The upscale-casual restaurant is currently accepting reservations for its grand opening this Tuesday, June 28.

Local business leaders, board members of the Livingston Area Chamber of Commerce and Livingston Township Council members welcomed Porto by Antonio to Livingston by attending its preview. Antonio Dinis, co-owner and chef, and Pedro Gomes, co-owner and chairman, welcome area residents to enjoy their new open-kitchen concept, BYOB, indoor and outdoor restaurant.

With a successful location at 8912 Old River Rd. in North Bergen opened only 18 months ago, Porto by Antonio was recently named one of New Jersey’s Top 20 Pizzerias by NJ.com. Replacing the old Cosi Sandwich Bar, Porto by Antonio is Dinis and Gomes’ second location.

"It's a great area, and for people that want this type of atmosphere you'd usually have to travel to Montclair,” said restaurant manager Sebastian Ferreira, explaining why the owners chose the Livingston location. “But, now people can stay in town to get this rustic and artistic feel. We're trying to bring a little of the city into New Jersey."

Sebastian also commissioned the art that is hanging in the restaurant and is the owner/operator of Munchies in Newark.
