At the end of our 2.5 week trip in Asia, we decided to have 1 western-style meal to cap off our travels. Porto Bello was delicious and worth every baht. Great, central location and lovely decor. Food was obviously a bit more expensive than your average local Thai restaurant, but it was worth it. Highly recommend you try this place for a nice dinner if you're in Koh Tao and need a taste of home.

Nice food and good atmosphere. Basically, if Dive Masters or OW students want a nice celebratory meal, they go here!

I went twice in two days. Paul, the owner, is very interactive with the guests-greeting, seating, making sure everything tastes amazing. Extremely well run and the food is mind blowing. Starting with the dough balls in pesto and the mushroom bruschetta you feel like you've entered into another world. The calzones are massive and oozing with fillings, delicious cheese and sauce. The gratin au fromage is a veggie delight with broccoli, carrots, potatoes and cheese in a cream sause. Any of the pastas are just as scrumptious. My personal favorite was the penne del gambero-my tastebuds were in heaven! Mum's goey chocolate cake was deliciously decadent. The prices were great, and the ambiance was superb. DEFINITELY recommend!
