Italian food is excellent, ambiance is excellent, service is very good and prices are reasonable. Outside seating overlooking the river. What more could you want! As a local, it is one of my 'go to' places when going out for dinner.

We returned to this restaurant and hoped it would be as good as we remembered it. It was. The service.was great and we enjoyed everything we had. Eddie, our waiter was great. He recommended the seafood pasta and it was excellent. We will definitely.return if we are in the area again.

If you are looking for GREAT flavours, super service, a chef who isn't afraid to create a meal not on the menu (my husband had the most delicious veal piccata with grilled shrimp and a side of puttanesca!!), then this is the spot to go!! Lovely ambience and a view over the river - truly our favourite Nuevo Vallarta spot!!!

My wife and I just returned from Nuevo Vallarta. We tried Porto Bello one night and came away absolutely impressed. While I stuck with standard chicken parmesan, my wife had the seafood linguini and absolutely loved it. The restaurant is nicely decorated in a very mod/hip building with open air seating. The staff was excellent and most accommodating in arranging... More

This was by far our favorite restaurant in Nuevo Vallarta. Excellent dishes prepared for all of us and seated right by the water at sunset. Would recommend the eggplant dish and their pasta dishes.

We have been coming down here for more than 15 years and first ate at the original Porto Bellos in Marina Vallarta. A few years ago we were quite exited when they opened a second place in Nuevo, right down the street fro our Condo. We have celebrated Christmas and New Years here over the years...and the food is usually... More

Great outdoor seating along the water way. Service was great and all 5 of our family loved their meals. We ate there twice - once outside and once indoors. It was full outside so we went indoors and the teens loved the music videos and the music being played inside (so did the adults...a lot of 70's and 80's music... More

Ate here 5 years ago, and the restaurant still has great food, good service and is located within walking distance of the Grand Mayan. The staff is very friendly and with open air seating, it makes for a good place to eat.
