We were promptly seated and the food fest began. Minestrone soup, caesar salads, fried calamari, bruschetta all delicious. We had 11 people in our party and a ton of different pasta dishes were ordered but the favorite was the tri-colored pasta with vodka sauce, incredible! Our server was spectacular, fast efficient, friendly and most helpful in our ordering selections. This... More

We went on their 2-for-1 pizza day, the pizza take-out is ordered in a little hole in the wall type storefront beside the main restaurant - really good pizza, very good price.

We have been going to Porto Bello for many years and went twice this December. The last couple of years, I noticed a decline in the quality of meals but I am happy to report that the food is back to the excellent standards I have come to expect from this restaurant. Porto Bello has a very nice patio next... More

Every trip here we always go to this restaurant at least once. The food and variety is very good. The atmosphere is excellent since you are right on the canal. Every dish is attractively served and the service is nice.

We have been coming to Puerto Vallarta for more than 20 years now and found Porto Bello about six years ago. It was a Thursday night we called ahead for reservations for the patio as we were staying at the Mayan Palace in Nuevo (that's another review escaping the prison of Vidanta) We were warmly greeted and seated at our...

The food was amazing and the ambiance and service were wonderful!! Plus the costs were extremely reasonable for everything that we ordered! They also have a... More

Six of us, three couples, out for dinner for the evening. All of us had pasta dishes and each one was superb. Very nice ambiance, alongside the marina. Srvice was very good. Nice selection of wines. Price for this quality of restaurant was very good.

We enjoyed the atmosphere sitting outside on a lovely evening by the Malecon. The fish appetizer plate had two small scallops and about six fried octopi. Yuck! The main dishes were all right, but nothing special.
