The location was fun - we sat on the street and enjoyed the Saturday evening passerby's. However, I don't think I have ever been given so little food in an Italian restaurant. I ordered Linguini with Clams and Shrimp at $16.95. It was tasty, but there was much less than a single of serving of pasta in it, very few small shrimp, and it was hard to find the clams. Beyond that, we were given a portion of Italian bread that was so hard, it tore up my mouth. I was very disappointed with the decision to dine here and I really wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Open to the Greenwich Village street scene with average food and good service. Can get a bit crowded and noisy with a hectic crowds passing by the open restaurant.

I loved this restaurant. I had a delicious Penne alla Vodka and I was surprised to find them exquisite as if I was in a good restaurant in Italy. Good wine selection, perfect service. I highly reccomend it!

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.
