What a pleasant surprise to find an excellent Italian restaurant on this island! The pizzas and salads were so great after having so much Thai food. I'm usually skeptical about having Western food in non-western areas mostly because it's hard to get the right ingredients, but Porto Bello has managed to do overcome this hurdle in the best way possible....

This is a good restaurant. You can eat pasta/pizza/salad and other dishes. FOOD: good PRICE: on the average for this kind of restaurant stile and service offered. SERVICE: very good There are always a lot of people waiting for a table. So its not easy to sit fast. I can suggest to visit this place

This restaurants location is in the walking street og Sairee Beach. We got the last table. The waiter was very busy and therefore didn't have time for welcoming us in the right way. We ordered two pizzas, one calzone and one with parm ham and rocket salat. The Calzone was average-good. The parma ham one was exelent. My recomendation is... More

Very trendy restaurant, always busy! You can make a reservation when coming with a group, otherwise it will be hard to get a table. The antipasti starter plate for 2 is truly amazing!!! Great pizza as well.

We waited over an hour after ordering for our waiter to inform us they did not have bolognese sauce (not sure what Italian restaurant runs out of bolognese sauce)! So my partner changed his order to a pizza. After waiting another 40 minutes our food came and my partners pizza was not what he ordered. Our waiter was extremely rude... More

We opted for a change from thai food and what a mistake we made. The place looks busy but don't be fooled. Service is terrible, we were not even greeted or shown to a table, it was just a casual glance to a vacant table as if to point for us to sit down over there. No one approached us... More

This was our favourite resturant during our time in Ko Tao. The Brie starter is incredible well worth a try, me and my friends loved the different pastas. The owner was very helpful not just with the food but also with advice about Thailand. A great resturant if you want something other than Thai food :)

Ordered a greek salad and portobello pizza to be delivered to our hotel one evening. Food came in 30 minutes as promised, hot and delicious. Tried to go here for lunch the next day because it was so good, but unfortunately was closed.

Food is amazing and fresh no doubt. However, the staff needs to be replaced especially the girls. They were very impolite, sitting around with cranky faces. Their nin verbal expressions and body language was a disgrace. It was clear they didn't want to be there. They left all the male staff do the jobs. One female even opened the fridge... More

Good pizza and pasta but I'd say nothing more. It's good for a change from Thai food when you are travelling for a long time and you fancy something different. But the pasta wasn't fresh pasta and the sauce was just ok! The pizza was the best we've had whilst in Thailand but nothing compared to pizzas at home. Owners... More
