Porta Via - Our History

At Porta Via, our passion is creating delicious foods inspired by the vibrant flavors of Italy, the Mediterranean and California in a modern café-style atmosphere that’s as warm and welcoming as an old neighborhood market. 

Our ingredients are fresh, our sandwiches handcrafted, and our soups made from original family recipes. We prepare healthy meat, fish and chicken dishes with olive oil and fragrant herbs; delicatessen sandwiches and paninis are made with freshly-baked breads and premium Italian meats and gourmet cheeses; our savory pastas are prepared using only the finest authentic ingredients. At our famous Insalata Bar we personally craft your salad from fresh ingredients and dressings. And we offer a large assortment of tempting gourmet pastries and desserts for you to enjoy with an authentic cappuccino or espresso.

Our shelves are stocked with many hard-to-find Italian specialty items, along with fine imported and domestic beers and wines. We also specialize in preparing seasonal holiday meals, custom picnic boxes and gift baskets, and we cater private parties and events both large and small. So stop in, relax and experience our fine foods for lunch or dinner, or let us prepare your favorite menu items for take-out. One visit and you’ll see why Porta Via has become the go-to destination for authentic Italian cuisine and take-out in Pasadena.
