We were just visiting Grand Haven and looking for some dinner. We stopped in to Porto Bello late one evening. The service was great. The food was wonderful. Very large dishes, so plan to share. The garlic cheese bread is VERY good. Definitely will visit again if in the area.

We enjoy ordering take out from Porto Bello's while eating at neighboring Odd Side Ales (bring-your-own-food brewery). Walk over, place your order at Porto Bello and then walk back over 20 minutes later to pick it up. Pizza is always piping hot and delicious!

We ate outdoors, and enjoyed every bite! The building is historic, and the food was excellent. I had eggplant parmesan, and it was a huge portion. Others in my party had lasagna, enough for lunch the next day, and lobster/crab ravioli, which was spicy but we loved it!!

Patio seating. Great pizza. We ordered garlic bread not knowing that they provide a sort of roll with butter for every table. Had we know, we wouldnt have ordered the garlic bread. Wish it was stated on the menu or the waiter would have mentioned it. Salad was also good.

One of our regular stops in Grand Haven. Food is consistently good. Varied menu. Options to eat inside or out. Reasonable prices for great food. Sometimes live music. Bathrooms are a bit of a hike, but that's okay, need to get those steps in (not *stairs*). Love Love the Salad. Have never had a problem with service speed, but I'm... More

Stopped in for Lunch on a Sunday - while the place wasn't that crowded, service was sub-par (took a long time to take our order and wasn't too quick at all refilling waters/tea). Tuna steak was overcooked - pizza so-so. A bit overpriced.

So we go to a nice Italian restaurant and we had pizza, cheese bread and strawberry daiquiris. We sat outside on the patio and really enjoyed the beautiful sunny evening. Must have been there before the dinner rush.

Decided to try it once. My husband and I eat out often and usually split a meal since we don't like leftovers. Wanted the whitefish, which was unavailable so decided to try the shrimp scampi. The server didn't tell us there was a $4 split charge. For using one extra plate! Usually we eat from the same plate and tip... More
