Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A really good authentic Italian restaurant. The menu had a variety of pasta dishes,pizzas,fish,chicken etc. the pizzas were excellent, freshly cooked to order. The wine and Prosecco were reasonably priced and were of good quality. The staff were all very friendly. I would certainly recommend...if you fancy an Italian for a change.More

I orded a New Zealand for 700 bath. It was not eatable at all. I was very dissapointed, and the crew didnt seem to care about making costumers happy:(

We’ve had the pleasure of eating here for the past three evenings, the food and service is exemplary the only downside is they don’t have a credit card machine. Well done team, best restaurant in Koh Tao.

After reading the reviews below, we were a bit sceptical to visit however we had a fantastic meal here. I would recommend the Calzones - they were one of the best we have ever eaten! Food was freshly cooked and very tasty. The staff were...friendly and very efficient. We would highly recommend visiting!More

We couldn't get there during several days, but finally succeeded. Unfortunately instead of a nice dinner we got nervous atmosphere, stomachache and too high bill. The waiters were shutting like manekens, the owner was arrogant snd discriminative. Never again.

Disappointing Italian food. Seafood on seafood pizza was tasty but pizza itself was soggy and not great. Mediterranean pasta a bit bland.

Excellent find. Food was superb, and service excellent. I’d be happy with food if that standard anywhere in the world, let alone on a remote island.

The food here was really tasty, but because of the COVID-19 issue and government measures to deal with the epidemic, we could not enjoy what looked to be a nice menu of cocktails. While a little more expensive than most of the other places we...visited, it was a nice change of pace from Thai and other Asian cuisines. Conveniently located, nicely decorated and with a pleasing menu, its worth trying for a change of pace.More

There were quite a few things that made our dining experience at Porto Bello excellent. The servers spoke great English, and were very attentive and personable. Due to covid I believe there were a few promotions running like, a free appetizer of Arachini balls as...well as a discount to different dishes. Fantastic. Probably some of our groups favorite food on the island. The Mediterranean salad was a smashing home run with bread, delicious sauce, and topped with grilled chicken. Definitely a favorite. We also enjoyed the lasagna, pizza, and bolognese spaghetti were quite delicious too. It was a bit odd to find chopped up carrots in all the red sauce but for me that just assured that I got my full helping of vegetables for the day. So I call it a win. For dessert the chocolate rum is very warm and hearty. If you usually skip the desert you might want to reconsider. My fiancé would also like to add: The chicken salad was spectacular with big chunks of feta and delicious olives. The service is GREAT and we loved the free Arancini balls. Very good! However, the red sauce is not very good and it is put in every dish (carrots included). It’s a hit and miss. There is the same beef sauce in the calzone, spaghetti, and lasagna. The pastas were only ok.More

Come here! Had a good nicoise salad (although it could have had more tuna) to start and a perfectly cooked large chunk of salmon. My hubby had their special smoked salmon and crab ravioli and loved it. Large portions and decent but small wine selection....Great for a night out when you’re tired of Thai food. Nice ambiance and the service was prompt and friendly.More

Food was really good, service was a bit slow but Johnny the manager really makes this place. We were a big group and there was a bit of confusion with drinks order and we had little time to eat. Johnny was truly amazing such good...service, great smile, honestly this place should never let him go he’s a gem. Very rare to find service like this in Asia Thank you JohnnyMore

Service was good. Staff friendly but food was bang average. Four of us and only the crab ravioli got good feedback. My calzone was very doughy. Certainly had better. Wouldn't go back.
