Dinner delivered to our hotel

Very fast delivery service to our door and good value Italian food. Food is nice without being outstanding, a relaxing way to eat it though!

This was one of the best meals we've had in our 4 month SE Asia travel. Fresh, homemade pastas, homemade authentic pesto sauce & nice thin crust pizza's with lots of flavor! If you're looking for a break from Thai food, give this one a try! Really reasonable prices and exceptional service too. Check it out!

We made the mistake of trying to walk in for dinner the one night but the restaurant was packed so we made reservations for the following night. It was undeniably worth the wait. Staff know exactly what they are doing and service is fast and efficient. There were three of us and we each ordered a starter and main with... More

Great atmosphere at this cute Mediterranean restaurant. Happened upon it by accident and glad we did. Fantastic wine selection and the food was divine.

The food here was very good can't remember what my fiancée ordered but I had the mixed grill which was very very good! I was pleasantly surprised as the menu said 'minute steak' so I was only expecting a thin piece what I got was a proper piece of good steak!! Service was good and red wine very nice. Would... More

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
