The ambiance was great. Even with a stormy day, I felt cozy and comfortable. I was able to choose my seating and it was great!

Was not impressed with Bice this time. I’ve been there many tines and it was just not stellar. Got a great table but server seems to be in training. Was very slow to get our drink orders, tried to serve a salad with the entree. The veal was very dry. Needs something.

The food was very good for Italian food in Florida. The service was ok. It took a while to just order drinks when we sat down. The appetizers were amazing. We had calamari and burrata. Loved how different the burrata was compared to different places. It had like an apricot balsamic jam with it and prosciutto to go with it! So good! Dinner was just as good.

The food was great, but the location was awful. The restaurant should warn people that coming there means paying $47.92 to park, since the hotel charges the overnight rate if you park there for more than half an hour. So, after the overpriced food, you feel robbed by the hotel for parking. We were there when the restaurant opened, and we saw the host turn a couple away because they did not have a reservation. The restaurant only seated 6 tables during the 90 minutes we were there. There is no need for such pretentious attitudes.

Dear guest, We loved to hear that you enjoyed our food. Just some facts about your comment: 1)The parking is always free if you dine at our location (as specified on OT reservation page). 2)The guests were turned away because our dress code doesn't allow certain attire. Best Regards, Emidio Ciccocelli GM Bice Ristorante Orlando

Kids screaming/ not enjoyable. At 830pm there should be no kids under the age of 12 and Bice should engorce that. I know you want money but you are turning a fine dining experience for 175.0 for 2 people into McDonalds. Thats it/ no more.

Paul was our waiter and he was just lovely. Every dish we ordered was absolutely delicious!
We started with the La Caprese Classica - melt in your mouth burrata. For dinner, I had the Cappellaccio and was a member of the clean plate club!! Soooo good. My husband had the Carre' di Agnello (rack of lamb) and again, ate every last bit. I discouraged him from gnawing on the bones - LOL. And finally, my 11 year old daughter Tagliata di Manzo - the steak was unbelievable as were the roasted potatoes. This was our "last night" meal of the vacation and boy did we end on a high!

Excellent food, drinks, location (we ate once inside, which was nice, and outside overlooking the water / boats, which was great as well. Service was impeccable as well--ask for David, but I'm sure the other servers are great too. Great cappuccino and dessert too! Will definitely return next time we visit Portofino!

We went for our 2 yr. anniversary and our experience was just as expected. Service was great, atmosphere (we sat outside), food quality and price. I didn't like their mashed potatoes but that is a personal preference it has nothing to do with an error in the kitchen or my order. We will definitely come back!
