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

We were in town for one night and chose Porto Bello for dinner. The salad was right out of a bag; you know the one, with lots of white iceberg lettuce, a few shavings of red cabbage, carrots, and radish. The veal parmesan was not bad, but the glob of mozzarella on top was just that and cooled to rubber.... More

New in town and had dinner here. It is a restaurant with a bar area. Good food...mushroom stuffed ravioli and a corkscrew pasta dish. Ravioli was very good, the other pasta dish a little rich, but a nice taste. Two man blues-ish band was playing some very good music. Prices are average, service was good - fast and friendly.

Living in Grand Haven for a long time I have eaten here at different times throughout the years and have never been impressed. I had family coming in and they liked the idea of Italian so I thought I'd give it another shot as it has probably been 5 years since I had been here last. Still disappointed. The lobster... More

I love spaghetti and this was good stuff. Cooked right with great sauce and meat balls (optional, with a fancy Italian title). My wife got maranari dip and loved it.

My daughter and I loved the food. I had an individual pizza that was awesome and she had ravioli which it must have been delicious as she didn't even offer me a bite. Great place.
