The best Christmas Dinner ever, Red Wine & Pizza! Earlier in the evening we'd been let down by another well known restaurant so our expectations were not high. We shared a brochette starter, followed by Pizza & red wine & I can say I throughly enjoyed it. The service was attentive & the Pizza & red wine were excellent, Thank... More

I was looking for a good Italian place and stumbled upon this one. It was very nice looking and had a good amount of people here. I got the pasta carbonara and was not disappointed. It was super good. Quick service. Great place.

Ordered 2 meals and a side and specifically asked for them all to come together. Our meals came out and the side didn't. After 5 minutes I asked the waitress and she said it would be out in a minute, 15 minutes later the side came out. No apologies just simply blaming the reason they were short staffed. I told...

I was excited to try this place since it's seemingly always packed. I'm guessing the patronage is only because there are so few mid-range restaurants on Koh Tao. I found the food to be average at best, the carbonara was a bit bland and took 45 minutes to arrive. The real kicker was the inattentive service staff, most of whom... More

Although we love Thai food, after having been in Thailand for two weeks already we were ready for a change. Having been disappointed with Italian at one restaurant we wen to in Phuket we thought we'd have another go. First off, the ambience and decor is really nice. The service fast, friendly and good English. We started off with Bruschetta,... More

More high end than anything else in Koh Tao, the vibe of Porto Bello in inviting and charming. They have a simple menu. Their coconut panna cotta was simply outstanding. Must try.

I love this place, good food and authentic atmosphere. There are lots of Italian restaurants opened since I last visited 5 yrs ago and also 3 but this is my favourite. Staff were really nice and accommodated my friends gluten dietary requirements. Pizzas amazing - we will be back again

We decided to go here for an early dinner. We had past this place many times, and it had always been packed with people. They have a big menu. We shared a bruschetta with cheese and mushrooms for starter. Quite tasty, but not too many pieces of mushrooms. For the main I had the the pasta with pesto and Meditiranian... More

Wanting a break from thai food, we went to Porto Bello. The menu was big with lot of vegetarian alternativs! I ordered the chiken main. It was ok, the chiken was dry and the dish missed some sauce, but a tasty meal. The vegetarian pasta was tasty and a big portion. The service was great untill a table of 9... More
