My wife and I had early dinner at Porto Bello last week. The restaurant is at the harbor with nice views and excellent service. After cocktails, I ordered vegetable soup which was excellent. We each had salads which were equally good. I ordered stuffed pasta and my wife lightly breaded and pan fried fish. Both entries were excellent. Th total... More

My daughter and I enjoyed wonderful dinner and drinks here. Lovely, outdoor seating near the Marina. Cesear salad is delicious, as was the Chicken parm and Tricolor pasta with Chicken. We would have liked to visit again but we were only in Nuevo Vallarta for 7 days and there are so many other good places to try. Best to pay... More

Empty restaurant and altho we didn't have a reservation, they made a big deal as to whether they could accomodate us. Many staff hovering and hanging around your table, I felt I was being watched. Warm night and we ordered beer - warm beer it seems. Calamari starter was ok, pizza was undercooked, not good.

We have visited this restaurant many times over the years and it never disappoints! Our faves are the Lasagna, Porto Bello appetizer, Ossobucco and Eggplant parmagiano

Our table was right beside the canal. We could see the stars. Our meal for seven was delightful. It is hard to tell what was the best; the setting, the service or the food.. I finally settled on the food, which was excellent. I ordered an antipasto and a bruschetta for appetizers. They were just right to share for seven... More

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

Dined here recently during our trip. Make reservations. The good was very good. The service is great. I did however feel like I was rushed through the meal. We went early around 7 pm and there were more servers than customers so perhaps they were eager. Its just that I wanted to have a relaxing dinner. Just got my wine... 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.
