I've been using tripadvisor for years helping me determine which restaurants to eat at and hotels to stay in. I've been negligent by not reviewing any of these restaurants/hotels. That being said, this is my 1st restaurant review.
My husband and I have eaten at Porto Bello many times in the past few years when visiting Puerto Vallarta. Last night was one of the best meals we've had there.
Myrna gave us a wonderful outdoor table overlooking the Marina. After seating us, she made it a point to say welcome back as if we were old friends and dine there all the time. Nice touch!!!
Jaime was our server. He was so accommodating and truly a nice person.
We started by splitting a caesar salad. It was very good, however, a bit overdressed. For our main courses, we wanted to split orders of the Fettuccine Funghi & Sarcicce and the Branzino alla Griglia. Jaime told us that the pasta dish was cream based. He said it would be no problem to change the sauce to a Pomodoro sauce or the pasta to fusilli instead of fettuccine. It was delicious!!! The branzino was cooked perfectly!!
Overall the service was excellent starting with Myna seating us to the busboy keeping our glasses and bread basket filled and to Jaime accommodating our every wish.
We had a great evening at Porto Bello and will definitely return again!
