Went to dinner with my Mom. Waitress, Angela, was terrible, no personality at all. She sat us at a table and just walked away. At the time we arrived there were only two other tables occupied. Took her 10 minutes to come back and ask what we would like to drink. I ordered a Reisling from the wine list, Mom... More

Wait staff was very nice. Food was good. Main problem is that it never looks open even when it is. They need to open the blinds & turn up the lights.

Two days prior to Christmas, my wife & my son tried this upscale Portuguese restaurant. My wife & I had pasta dishes, and my son had center cut pork chops. All dishes were cooked to perfection. Along with having three delicious dishes, the waitress brought us three helpings of Portuguese bread while we drank our cocktail. If I have a... More

Ventured out this past Friday night to hear the duo of Brenda Keen and Steve Heck who were playing at this restaurant. It took 10 minutes for us to be seated and then an hour for a waitress to acknowledge us and provide menus. I had to ask for water and a bread basket. Another 30 minutes for our order... More

Porto Bello has been in Wakefield for many many years and has recently had some changes inside and outside. It has a great bar, and the food is very good. I think that its popularity is starting to grow and now with the new outdoor seating area, that may attract even more people to see how nice the restaurant really... More

The food was fair. The waitress was very nice and tried to be accommodating. But the owner would not turn on the air conditioning and keep the doors open. It was so hot in the restaurant. That made the whole experience awful. I would never go back there again. There were only 3 parties in the restaurant at 6:00 pm.... More

Bought a groupon for this restaurant. We've passed it hundreds of times in the past but never stopped to try it. Glad we had a Groupon because the prices are a bit high for this area. But the food was delicious. Our waitress was very attentive and the decor of the restaurant was wonderful. It was very open and clean... More

I returned to this restaurant after many years living in Maine. I was pleasantly surprised! Everything we ordered was hot and very good. However they need homemade pasta.
