Bice at The Loews Portofino Bay Hotel
One of the best meals we'veOne of the best meals we've had in a long time Everything was perfect.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Pleasant ExperienceRead the reviews and was a bit worried about the service. Found the service great Kazimir and his team were great. Entire staff very accomodating. Food was interesting and well presented. Not a bad meal for any of us. Tuna tartar was great. Enjoyed the fresh pastas. Wine list was adequate but over priced. Overall a very pleasant experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved It!Got a nice table next to the window with a great view. The only reason we didn't eat in the outdoor section is that it was raining. Our server was great, a real class-act. The food was fantastic and quite different from the typical fare of an "italian" restaurant. If you want spaghetti and meatballs or baked ziti, go somewhere else. If you're adventurous and like rich, bold flavors, give BICE a try.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Night Out!I attended BiCE on May 6th with my girlfriend. I had plans to propose at dinner and the staff was more than accommodating, they sat us on the patio like i requested, and very few other tables were seated out there after we arrived which was very much appreciated. Our server Krassimir was very knowledgable and attentive to our needs. He suggested a bottle of wine that we both loved and pointed out appetizers and entrees that were amazing. The food and service was fantastic. Our server was more than willing to take pictures for us and captured our special moment with both pictures and a video that we will treasure for a lifetime. My fiancé and I had a truly great experience and cant wait to return.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMKind of hard to find resturantKind of hard to find resturant once you are at the hotel and staff do not give real clear directions on how to get there.
I made reservations over a week in advance and requested an outside table, yet when we arrived was told that there were none available because everyone asked to sit outside... we waited for a table and once seated waiting for some time before a wait staff came to say that they were behind due to a staff emergency... ONce they came back the server was fairly attentive.
Food was excellent... atmosphere was very romantic once the table of children that were very excited to be at universal had left...4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food, generous portions,Excellent Food, generous portions, This is one occasion where you get what you pay for!

Bice blows away Il Mulino at the Swan. All the food....pasta, seafood, veal is all at a much higher level than the fast food tasting Il Mulino.
Staff is not as familiar with the menu as they should be but they are much more professional than anywhere else.
I will definitely return every time I'm in the area.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBice's was fantastic, theBice's was fantastic, the food was awsome and the atomphere was enjoyable. Our waitor, Enrieqos was superb!!!!! I only say the noise level was rated lower because that evening they had a large party outdoors and they came in I think from the cold.
P.S. Thank you to Enreiqo3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMI decide to choose this restaurantI decide to choose this restaurant for my little sister birthday dinner, and it was the right choice. We had a great experience the staff was friendly and professional with good food, excellent mix, the maitre d' Robert was on top of it. This will be the spot to go when in town.3/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGive your review a title (optional)The home made pasta is delicious. The portions were huge. Expensive, but well worth the trip! Unless you have a huge appetite, be prepared for leftovers.1/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
