We were very pleasantly surprised with our experience. We had not initially planned on coming here as we were not necessarily thinking of eating Italian food while in Puerto Vallarta. So glad we decided to eat here after looking at the menu outside. We enjoyed very good and friendly service while overlooking the marina. We got off to a good... More

During our 9 days in Puerto Vallarta we ate at many fine restaurants that were reasonably priced. On the last evening we dined at Porto Bello and it was the perfect place to spend last evening. The food, service and view was outstanding.

My wife had caesar salad, vegetable soup prior to her main course of angel hair pasta with Italian spaghetti sauce, portobello mushrooms, and jumbo shrimp. I... More

My friend had linguine with seafood. 2 bottles of water. Bread. Tax & tip $40. Service was excellent. Pretty restaurant. Young woman singing in background.... More

Always one of the best restaurants in the marina offering consistently great service and outstanding food. They had slipped a little in the past year but I am happy to report they are back on their game. If fantastic seafood salad does not do it for you for the pasta fajioli soup. They're Osso Bucco has allways been outstanding. Fish... More
