Walked in at 12:45pm. Positive host greeting. Explained I'd like to eat lunch outside and asked to use rest room first. Came back, saw three severs and no host. Never greeted again and almost left then but host eventually came back. Sat outside. I was the only one outside which does add challenges for servers. Server never came so host... More

This is a nice restaurant has good food and service. Has good views of the Musical Fountain across the street. I recommend this place for dinner prior to watching the Musical Fountain.

Thought we'd get some good Italian food here. It was very mediocre. The server seated us, we were finally waited on (mind you the place wasn't even close to busy). When the food came, no one EVER came back by to ask how it was or if we needed anything else. We both had a lot of food left over... More

Beautiful spot with covered porch dining. We shared a pizza which was good but not great. Another couple had an Italian combination plate which they enjoyed except the spaghetti was dry without much sauce. The service was good. This place is worth a try if you are visiting .

We went on a Friday and had a lovely meal. Great service, large portions, good food. The server was attentive and we were seated near the window so we enjoyed seeing the atmosphere outside despite the brisk temps.

My husband and I needed to go to Porto Bello to pick up a gift card as a Christmas gift and we decided to have dinner here. He loves their tortellini and I was looking to try something different - the chicken and pesto pizza caught my eye. Brooke was our server and did a great job. Their salad is... More

We visited Porto Bello with friends on a Friday night. The restaurant is located in the center of downtown, close to the boardwalk on the channel, musical fountain, downtown activities, shopping. The restaurant was busy, and had live music, but we only had a short wait time. The staff was courteous, the food was good, and a good selection, tending... More
