I certainly don't know where Printshiraz - the reviewer before me - ate because our experience at Porto Bello was very good. The food was delicious and the service friendly. We had garlic bread to start and then for mains my husband had ravioli stuffed with spinach, I had the seafood tagliatelle and my son had a margherita pizza. All... More

Whatever they market themselves as "Mediterranean?". It is shameful. Cannot fault the service as they were attentive and friendly. But the food; frankly the food was horrendous. Pizza, antipasto, salad, pasta- everything overcooked, tasteless and the flavor mix was neither Italian or Mediterranean- more like something that looks Italian or Mediterranean but the taste- completely wrong!

Nice place! I had the Arrabiata pasta and my boyfriend had Spaghettig Carbonara. I enjoyed my meal but it was bascially the only interesting thing for a vegetarian on thr menu which were a little disapointing but it was good. We shared some Garlic bread. This was very delicious! The atmosphere was nice but maybe a bit too 'fancy'. I... More

I've been going here regularly for quite a while, and it seems to be getting even better! Great service from all the friendly staff, and the manager Gianmarco will take good care of you as well. Good pizza and pasta, nice wine options and super cheese board :) Thanks again!

A hoppin' place to be sure. Had to wait for a table as it was very busy. Manager, a young foreigner was helpful and polite. Had a pizza and it was really quite good - definitely a cut above average! Service was good, nice atmosphere indicative of a popular, busy place. All in all I was impressed and came away... More

Love this place, great food, wine, service and chilled music and atmosphere. Awesome for dinner parties and bdays etc and the service is some of the best I have had Thailand. The menu has something for everyone, each one I have had I have not been let down. Will be back for sure!

I've heard a lot about Porto Bello, and one night decided to eat there with group of friends. I wasn't served a dish I actually ordered, then on the top of it, it was served cold with rotten, old lettuce ( it supposed to be rocket at the first place). When I complained about the dish, the staff started to... More

It's always good to know where to find excellent food when you're on holiday so I thought I would write a review. Me and two of my friends ate here the other night. I wish we were on this island for longer so we could eat here again, the food was absolutely amazing! On top of the food being delicious... More
