Trust the mixed reviews and expect an average meal at gourmet prices. The service as noted in most reviews is very good to excellent...friendly, efficient while leaving the diners plenty of space to eat and talk. Had lobster bisque, veal piccata, napolean desserts...all average at best and way overpriced for the quality. Adjust expectations based on your location rather than... More

It's unfortunate that you left with this kind of impression about us as our intentions are to show people a phenomenal Italian dining experience. Our recipes are Northern Italian style and passed down through generations since 1926, so the quality of our dishes is a priority. We'd love another opportunity to serve you our best. We're confident we can. Sincerely,... More

In fairness, I live in Providence RI, which has phenomenal Italian food. So my bar is very high. We stayed at the hotel for four nights recently and dined at Bice one of those nights. The food is good, not great, not cheap. The atmosphere is very nice. The service was good, not great. For its prices, it gets an... More

It's disappointing that we didn't exactly win your favor. We're all about a unique dining experience full of delicious, homemade Italian recipes and top-notch service. We can't speak to the exact details of your visit, but our hope is that we'll get a second chance one day to exceed your expectations. We're confident that we can. Sincerely, Your BiCE Team More

So I did research for a nice restaurant for our business trip to Orlando. I was so excited to book this restaurant. I emailed everyone on my team a link to the restaurant and hyped it up. So we were excited. Our reservation was for 7:30 but we arrived at 7:40 ( we called to let them know we were... More

First and foremost, Patrice, we're so sorry that we didn't deliver the exceptional experience you and your co-workers were looking forward to. Your frustration is absolutely understandable. As our staff member explained, our kitchen was working to get back on the ball after some difficulties, and it's disappointing that it affected the quality of your meal. We want to reassure... More

In fairness, I am not a fan of faux reality. The Portofino resort like most of Orlando would like for you to believe you've actually visited Italy, not a fan. But Bice is the real thing. The Pasta, the fish, the wine were all as good as any Italian resturant in any large city in the U.S. Service was outstanding... More

The best charcuterie and cheese board I have ever had. Pasta bolognese was delicious . Dessert was wonderful. Opera singer performs at 6:30 if you sit on the balcony. Great price for the quality and atmosphere.

Carla, we love hearing that you had a wonderful time with us. Musica Della Notte is at dusk most evenings. Starting March 1st, it will begin at 7:30 p.m., so if you decide to return you'll be able to hear the sounds of the show. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

My wife and I went here for Valentine's Day and couldn't have picked a nicer spot ! Located in the Lowe's Portofino Hotel (which is part of Universal), it's very nice, somewhat elegant, but far from stuffy. While you can show up smart casual, many were dressed well. Italian themed, I had eggplant stuffed ravioli (excellent), and my wife had... More

A few friends had mentioned Bice in the past and recommended it to me. Since I live about 30-45 minutes away, it wasn't at the top of my list.

We went to Bice Orlando specifically for a romantic dessert after a day at the pool and parks. We sat on the terrace and were able to listen to music from both the restaurant's piano and the plaza below. The atmosphere was phenomenal. This should be on any list of best couples' restaurants in Orlando.

The setting and the service here is everything one could wish for. We started with appetizers which, while a bit too large for that course, were excellent. We both ordered pasta dishes and were disappointed. We expected elegant dishes properly sauced but the dishes when they arrived appeared to be like typical "red sauce" family diners.....swimming in too much sauce.... More

While we're thrilled that you enjoyed our atmosphere and service, but it's disheartening to hear that we fell short with your main course. Above all else, quality is a priority, so it's surprising that your dishes arrived this way. When it comes to parking, we validate valet, which reduces the cost to $5. However, we also offer complimentary self-parking in... More
