My family was recently in Nuevo Vallarta for our son's destination wedding. As parents of the groom, we were in charge of the rehearsal dinner for 22 people. Working with Mario at Porto Bello was an awesome experience. He was super responsive every time I emailed him and he helped create a customized menu and wine list that was very... More

Excellent restaurant on several aspects. Nice setting close to the Mayan Grand Luxxe resort. The food is very good and well presented. The service is warm and efficient. The prices are very attractive considering the overall quality. Do not miss this restaurant if you are in the area. The owner has another similar restaurant in the Puerto Vallarta Marina. My... More

We were a little nervous given that the prices are expensive, and follow the traditional Italian restaurant in terms of the 4-5 course meal, and that's not generally how we dine. We went because they had some specials going on that were more in line with what we wanted to spend--an entree and a glass of wine, and maybe even... More

We enjoyed a wonderful Saturday night dinner while in NV for a family vacation in August, 2014. Porto Bello is a beautiful restaurant. Dining outside provides a view of the marina on a gorgeous deck. The interior dining room is very modern and stunning as well. The service at Porto Bello is impeccable and the food is excellent. The breads... More

Setting among many shops, in the middle of the main harbor at Neuvo Vallarta (just north of Puerto Vallarta) is the most amazing Italian restaurant you could ask for! Porto Bello Bistro was recommended by a friend, that travels way more than I do, and spoke very highly of the food, staff and the atmosphere. Nothing disappointed! The meals were... More

Annual visitor to portobellos at the marina so decided to change it up this time and try out the new digs in Nuevo. This was no doubt the best meal we had all week. Outstanding, fresh food, prepared and served graciously. Love. Love. Love.

We ate here and the kids were afraid as it was "too fancy". Wow we're they impressed and they wanted to eat there the next night. The attention given by the wait staff was top notch. This location ( their other location is in the marina) is IMHO way better. The view, service, food and ambience is better. If you... More
