We'll be back!

We love Italian food and are always looking for a good neighborhood restaurant. Found it! My go-to dish is almost always chicken parm and I was not disappointed. The lunch portions were very large. I actually brought home half of it to enjoy again. The sauce was tasty and the entrée was served... read more

It's good, predictable Italian food, served in a lively indoor/outdoor restaurant. The early bird is definitely the best value: Soup, salad, entree, garlic rolls, the whole 9 yards. Prices are just what you think they usually are for restaurants like this, so you'll leave just a little bit poorer, but with a sense of contentment. And maybe even a doggie... More

One of my favorte local eateries. Service is always good. I get to talk the owner/manager frequently. Portions are huge but not intimidating. Both lunch and dinner menus available. Really nice al frsco outside seating in a small strip mall near a movie theatre.

There's nothing fancy about Porto Bella, but for a local Italian restaurant, the food is super competent. Beats the competition hands down. We eat there all the time.

What had been not a bad place many years ago has turned into a restaurant that's less than good. The exemplary fried calamari that was always an ample portion has been diminished. The portobello mushroom sandwich is not the full mushroom cap but some slivers instead and the bread is of poor quality. Won't be back.

Ordered a large pepperoni for pick up. Was told it would be 20 minutes. Arrived in 18 minutes and pizza was ready. Pizza was cooked to perfection plenty of ingredients, hot and fresh. Check for coupons in local newspapers and flyers. We will definitely be back.

The food is always good, the can be slow. Be prepared to wait. Sat outside for the first time since construction was finished. Although there are transparent windscreens surrounding the outside tables, there's no provision the harsh setting sun. It is a major annoyance and detracts from what would be an otherwise comfortable experience. Surprised msnsgement hasn't corrected the problem.... More

Four of us on Fri eve--caught the Earl Bird--before 6PM. Soup, salad, main course and garlic knot and plain rolls. Main courses were enough to share (extra charge) or take home half. Lasagna was nicely done with meat and cheese filling. Eggplant rollatini is a favorite. Other couple had chicken Parmesan as their favorite. Nothing is spicy, so add your... More

The food was good, slightly above average, huge portions. I was really disappointed in my take out experience. The man at the counter forgot to give us one part of our order and when we called asking if they could bring it to us (they have delivery) we were told we would have to come back (they were very very...
