Restaurateur Barbara Lynch offers a “unique” , trattoria-inspired experience at this “sleek” Fort Point destination, which “never fails to satisfy” with its “creative pasta dishes” and “great wine selection” ; some find the distinctive “diner-like setting” with most seats around two U-shaped counters a little “awkward” , while others consider it a “fun way to watch” the “hip” , “friendly” staff at work in the open kitchen.

This place serves up some seriously delicious pasta! The gnocchi with lobster is to die for although I wouldn’t have said no to a little more lobster. The flavors in the dish were well balanced and the creaminess of the sauce was perfect. My husband had the tagliatelle which he loved. Cocktails and olives were also very tasty. We will definitely be back here again.

I was pleasantly surprised to find Sportello on Seated, I live down the street and had never noticed it. Great service. I love the cafeteria seating here -- it feels cozy. Wine list is excellent. We started with prosciutto, soppressata, pickled peppers, and olives ~ it was quite the spread! Main courses came out hot, tomatoes in our pasta melted in your mouth, and the pasta was clearly fresh and handmade.

Sportello is a great Italian place where most diners sit along a diner-like counter with an open kitchen. It's fun to see the cooking in action and other guests. It's a great way to see what other people are ordering for ideas. Most of the food was amazing though I thought the cod dish that night was OK as well as the chocolate tart. Nothing bad about either but not amazing. My wife and I thought the salt was slightly heavy handed on the pasta but they otherwise we're great! This is a place worthy of another visit and is a fun date spot too.
