“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

I ate here with my family twice on my visit to Ko Tao. It was lovely food and a great atmosphere.
I recommend you book as they are usually very busy!

“Couldn't rate it higher! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014 via mobile

Ate twice here during our short time on ko Tao and absolutely loved it. The food was one of the best meals we've had since being in Thailand for a month, and the owner himself is really kind. Desserts are great too! Highly recommend.

“Disappointing meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

This place looked great at first sight: Italian-style food, wine and an Italian waitress... But although the wine was very good, we were a bit disappointed in the food. The pasta sauces were a bit boring and plain, my fish was drowned in cheese... I was edible but definitely not worth the money.

“Perfect the occasional splurge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014

When you've had enough Thai food and you fancy a Mediterranean splurge then Porto Bello is the place to go. Excellent pastas and puddings and nice wines. The staff are very attentive and this is one of the few places that understands the correct sequencing of starters, main courses etc. and manages to bring everyones food at the same time. They take reservations which is really helpful because they are often very busy.
