I was quite skeptical to having Italian on the island but I was so pleasantly surprised when I had the most delicious carbonara I've ever had! The regular size is worth the extra baht although I wish it was a tad bigger as it was so yum! I had to refrain from licking the bowl clean!! I recommend eating here.

The place was practically full, and I can see why. We each had a glass of pretty decent Chilean cabernet sauvignon (200 baht. I had the tagliatalle with gorgonzola cream sauce (210 baht). I had the regular portion (as opposed to small) and it was excellent and filling. If you were having and appetizer or salad, the small might suffice.... More

We went to Porto Bello's for a dinner date. It was pretty crowded but we were able to find a table. With that said if you looking for a quiet dinner this probably isn't the place but it wasn't bad. We ordered bread dip. Which was just bread you dipped in mayo, a tomato sauce, and olive spread (which was... More

When we ordered we were told there was no more basil for a caprese salad. The alternative was pesto - no Thankyou. We ordered a pizza and a garden salad. The waitress came... More

Had read reviews about having to wait for a table but we managed to get one straight away. Service was quick and unlike many thai restaurants our food was serviced to us in a reasonable lenght of time and together. It was the best non thai dinner I've had in the 3 weeks I've been in Thailand. Highly recommend -... More

The quality of food is stunning. Added to very professional and friendly hardworking staff, you will miss out if you don't try this place whilst on the island. Always a good atmosphere due to being usually full of happy diners. Thanks to Gian Marco and all the staff.
