Lovely place, friendly and efficient service. Non-descript food. Pretty much what you'd expect at a sports bar.

Walking the neighborhood to find a lunch place, we two ladies happened on Porto Bello. Small cozy place. We ate outside. I had the most wonderful clams and shrimp in red sauce. The sauce was light! Not heavy tomato like most. Wonder, light and flavorful. My friends had chicken in mushroom sauce. Also, wonderful. Also, enjoyed talking to the proprietor.

Mmmmm, we had the mussels and the lasagna Bolognese, both wonderful. Enjoyed a late alfresco lunch on a gorgeous summer day. Several clocks on the walls, but not hurried.

-Delicious desserts from a tray & worth the calories.

Amazing atmosphere and location, relatively inexpensive with well stocked bar with all the Italian goodies. I'm an Italian foodie, so I'm kind of hard to impress. I'd say the food here is solidly good, not ethereal, but quite good. What's magical here are the Italian guys tending to you with love, like you've stepped off the ferry in Napoli and your uncles take you home for family dinner. They're awesome. Perfect place for dinner and walking around the village afterwards, this native NY'er highly recommends Porto Bello!
