Good Italian Food, even the Red House vine was very good

Nice place for a break from thai food. Delicious shakes and vine. The pasta and the pizza are very good.

We decided to try Porto Bello after reading good reviews here on TA. We weren't disappointed in the standard of food we got here. We ordered a salad, which although quite basic was nice and fresh. We also ordered bolognese calzone, two different pizzas, a shrimp pasta dish and a chocolate cake dessert. All condiments were brought to the table,... More

The Diavola pizza was a perfect size and very flavourful with the right amount of spiciness. The only drawback was that it didn't come sliced, and it was very tricky trying to cut through the thin crust. Service was mediocre but efficient enough. Priced similarly to elsewhere on the island.

Having eaten frequently in Little Italy in NYC, "highly rated" Italian restaurants throughout the UK, yet not yet Italy itself. I'm confident in saying, the food I ate at Porto Bello is the best Italian I've had so far in my life! Having shared a range of dishes; the Spaghetti Meatballs, Diavolo Stonebaked Pizza, Fillet Steak and the miniature desserts,... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of eating at Porto Bello restaurant several times while staying on Koh Tao. The wine was the best we had on the entire island, the service was prompt and the food was consistently good. It's a great place to start out your evening as you know whatever you order is going to be... More

I have been to Thailand 3 times and I never stay in one place too long. Any time I have ordered pasta, it has been average at best. I mean you are in Thailand where Thai food is amazing, Italian is not what they're known for. Porto Bello Bistro in Sairee Village was awesome. They have proper pasta and the... More
