Five of us visited Porto Bello last night, and I'd have to say, I forgot I was in Mexico for an hour and half. We had a reservation so we were seated right away. Not to knit pick, but they really don't have a five person table. Luckily, we are a close bunch. Drinks were ordered and delivered right away.... More

I have no been for a while but it was good to return. I like the location and the fact that you are sitting facing the yachts in a calm setting with white table cloth. The quality is steady over the years, it is not a foodie haven but better food than at the rest of the marina restaurants. Safe... More

We had dinner at Porto Bello and I would love to return on our next visit. Porto Bello is an Italian and seafood restaurant in Marina Vallarta. I had heard that their seafood risotto was spectacular and, though it was not on the menu, they made if for me the evening we were there. The portobello mushroom appetizer was excellent.... More

Porto Bello has been in this location offering fine Italian dining for as many years as we have been coming to Puerto Vallarta. A recent visit did not disappoint. The menu offers the full range of classic Italian dishes that anyone would expect to find. We shared a Caesar Salad and had different pasta dishes on this visit and all... More

Shrimp scampi, lasagna, and linguini with shrimp & calamari were superb. Good wine. Excellent service. Highly recommend.

10 years have gone since my last visit to this restaurant, at Marina. I was remembering a stylish restaurant with exquisite food, but it was always more important for us to try something new in Puerto Vallarta' Yesterday, Valentine day under an impulsion, I take off the bus while I was going another place. It have bee the best decision... More

Porto Bello on the marina in PV is one of the best choices in the area. Lovely casual-upscale atmosphere, directly on the marina with views of the boats coming in and plenty of people-watching. Service is great, responsive, professional and polite. The food! Start with the lovely bread basket, with different selections of premise-baked bread, fresh and crisp salads. The... More

Porto Bello is one of the nicest Italian restaurants in the world (at least the parts I have been to). Service is impeccable. Food is excellent. Wine list is elaborate. View is amazing.

We arrived with no reservations but were accommodated on the spot even thought they were. The service was great and done with a constant smile. The calamari and the meat balls (yummm) as appetizers were good. The mushroom risotto was excellent as well as the tricolour chicken pasta and the chicken with cheese and tomato sauce was very tasty. The... More
