Great Italian food, great wine

Great authentic Italian food and a really welcoming atmosphere at Portobellos. Came back twice thanks to the really friendly and helpful staff, as well as the owner, who is originally from Italy (always a good sign!). Really enjoyed our nights here and some of the best non-Thai food on the island.

Busy and almost full on a Thursday night. My partner and I were seated inside at around 9:00pm. Took a while for staff to bring over menus. When we ordered we were told there was no more basil for a caprese salad. The alternative was pesto - no Thankyou. We ordered a pizza and a garden salad. The waitress came... More

Had read reviews about having to wait for a table but we managed to get one straight away. Service was quick and unlike many thai restaurants our food was serviced to us in a reasonable lenght of time and together. It was the best non thai dinner I've had in the 3 weeks I've been in Thailand. Highly recommend -... More

The quality of food is stunning. Added to very professional and friendly hardworking staff, you will miss out if you don't try this place whilst on the island. Always a good atmosphere due to being usually full of happy diners. Thanks to Gian Marco and all the staff.

The restaurant only opens for dinner and is usually very busy but it would worth to wait for a table. The service is execellent, something not often seen in thailand and the pasta is amazing. If you want to eat pasta I recommend it 100%. The prices are ok as well.

Was here for dinner over three weekend, the restaurant was very busy, the food was greater value. Would recommend this place if you willing to wait a bit as the service is a little slow.

Food here was average not too much to rave about as the pasta was over cooked along with the prawn skewers. The restaurant gets quite busy as it appeals to tourists who are looking for a meal outside of Thai cuisine. Service was very good overall.

I have been to this restaurant every time I have come to koh Tao! The entire menu is really yum! You can't go wrong with anything that you order. Be prepared to wait a bit for a table as this place is really popular

We visited Porto Bello on more than one occasion during our time on Koh Tao. The food is great, as is the service! It's also not too expensive, you definitely get your money's worth. The calzone bolognase is huge and I would definitely recommend! It can get very busy, often with a small queue. Either get there early (between 5-6)... More
