“Nuevo Vallarta Jewel”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

If you are staying in the Nuevo Vallata area, this is a restaurant you'll want to visit. Excellent wine list, great service, seating available both inside and outside, super ambiance and plenty of menu choices. We vacation here every year and we make it a point to visit Porto Bello at least once or twice...if not more.

“All around wonderful”
Reviewed November 28, 2013 via mobile

This was our second dinner at Porto Bello and it lived up to our expectations. The only difference this time is we knew the portions were large so we ordered less food. It was a wonderful evening. Great setting, great service and excellent food. We had the steak capriccio appetizer and I had the veal topped with Portobello mushrooms and jumbo shrimp in a Marsala sauce. Just fabulous

“Best Linguine ai Frutti di Mare”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

This beautiful restaurant next to the rive's edge served the best Linguine ai Frutti di Mare I've ever had, and I've had a lot! I usually get it when we go to Italian restaurants and I was not disappointed at Porto Bello. Our concierge recommended this restaurant and we were very pleased. My husband had the osso bucco and he loved it. We're going again tomorrow night. Our water Ivan was very attentive and helpful.

“Excellent Service; Nice Views, Meal”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We have dinner at Porto Bello every time we're in Nuevo Vallarta. Tonight Miquel and Jaime waited on us. Their service is excellent. Both waiters make you feel comfortable and are there to help. I had the salmon; husband had the Fettucini with Mushrooms & Sausage. Food is delicious, the ambiance is nice. We recommend Porto Bello without hesitation.
