We decided it could be a nice place to eat... Not just! The service is just horrible! There were the same number of employees as tables busy ... We had to wait for more than 1/2 hour for a pizza and a salad. Too many people as part of the staff just looking around and not assisting customers. The pizza... More

Amazing food - We ordered the pizza and calzone which was great. Wine was good also. Little bit of a wait to get served and the place is always heaving - so maybe not the best of you are in a rush and it might also be a tip to book if you are staying in the area. Overall experience... More

Spectacular wine and exemplary Italian food (real wood fire ovens are used for the pizzas). I recommend the prawns as a starter - unbelievably tasty. Porto Bello also do takeaway.

Great ambience, relaxed enough that you can go in shorts (which is good on an island), decor is lovely, food is very good, specifically fantastic pizza's and wine (didn't sample the pasta). The owner is a friendly guy from Rome who took care of us very well :) would definitely go back here for another meal! Highly recommended on the... More

Good dishes, pizza as well as pasta. Try pasta with seafood and the cheesecake as desert. You won't regret ;) Prices are average compared to the other restaurants around. Staff is friendly, think you should stop reading reviers and just go there. Enjoy :)

The smell that wafts out of this restaurant onto the road is nothing short of amazing. The atmosphere inside the restaurant is lovely. Sometimes I wonder what kind of service people are looking for, because many people seem to fault Porto Bello on this front, I thought the service was decent. Our order was taken promptly and the food that... More

First of all I will get our traumatic experience out the way. Whilst we were waiting for our dinner the gas pipe form the pizza oven popped out and sent the restaurant into absolute panic, when the chef told everyone to run the place was turned upside down, tables and chairs were in the street with people screaming as they...

We went here for dinner. Looks like a lovely Italian restaurant, it has a lovely atmosphere. We went early and it was very quiet only 2 or 3 other tables seated, but the service was very slow. As the evening went on the restaurant filled up and service got slower and slower, we were largely ignored by our waitress and... More
