Great meal and two for one Martini's on Thursday night. Nice crowd even with the north entrance to the Vidanta resort Closed as this has hurt many of the restaurants north of the resort

Four of us ate at the Porto Bello, and agreed we each had one of the best meals we have ever had in the Puerto Vallarta area in the 8 years we have been coming

We dined at Porto Bello last night with our friends for the first time. Situated on the marina, we were seated outside and had a nice view. Thursday night is martini night - they make a great cosmo! Our waiter, Rodrigo, was wonderful, and was very attentive. I started with the Porto Bello Bruschetta, followed by a pasta with eggplant,... More

Found a very good Italian restaurant in the marina area of Nuevo Vallarta. Bruschetta antipasti was excellent, Farfalle al salmone and Linguine Frutti di Mare were favorites at the table.

We have been coming to Mexico for about five years. This year 2016 prices have suddenly soared, likely due to the high US $. Prices at Portobello have increased by about 30% over last year. Why? Although the food and service are excellent, prices are way out of line. In our experience Canadians make up the majority of visitors to... More

My friend and I went to the Porto Bello Chhristmas evening. I had made a reservation for 5 on the outside deck. When we got there, the young woman did not seem to know if she found our reservation or not. The food was absolutely excellent, but it was hard to enjoy the fine food as the waiter kept hovering...

We dine at Porto Bello at the Marina every year when we come back to PV. The food is always delicious and the staff and waiters are wonderful. Sebastian and Oscar have been there as long as I have been going which was late 1990s. Fabulous food, fabulous ambiance and setting. Highly recommend.

Was a little skeptical of Italian fare in Mexico but this place did not disappoint. Our family of 10 decided to venture out of the confines of the Grand Luxx for dinner one evening and walked to this place. The seafood pasta, shrimp, and chicken parmesean were excellent. We had a 3 year old with us and they had a... More
