Amazing service and amazing food! Couldn’t have asked for anything better!
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!
Enjoyed 2 wonderful dinners at Bice during our recent trip to Universal Orlando. The pasta was cooked to perfection and everything was incredible. The service was outstanding and the wine list is very complete. Good food, good service and a great atmosphere make for an unforgettable evening. This restaurant is one of the reasons we visit Universal..
Good food, great service. Authentic Italian food.
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.
Wonderful fancy Italian restaurant. Great wine list. Beautiful view of the bay. Awesome food. Nice place to celebrate something special.
Fantastic place to dine. They treat locals like family!
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.
Very friendly and good quality food. Service was a little slow but it was also full.
Great meal and server!
Service was outstanding! Our appetizers were fantastic. The salads were good. The entree was a little underwhelming in comparison to the rest of the meal. We appreciated the individuality.
Our server was very attentive helping us select what dishes we wanted.
Food was great as expected! Authentic Italian. Large portions a d easily shareable.
Fantastic experience overall. Service and quality of food was spectacular. I eat at BICE New York City often and this location at Portofino Bay was just as good if not better!
If I could give them 10 stars, I would. One of the best places in Orlando, even Florida.
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
Loved everything about it!!
Absolutely loved this restaurant. My girlfriend and I went for our anniversary and they made it special for us. Much appreciation for the restaurant.
Great night! Veal was delicious and well worth it.
Wonderful meal, relaxing and tasty after a long day at the parks. Very attentive service. Food was outstanding. Great wines available by the glass. Extensive list by the bottle.
Excellent food, impeccable service. David was amazing!
We had a wonderful time with my boys
We’ll definitely come back
Wonderful view on terrace
Food and service were excellent
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.
Dear guest, Here at Bice we welcome guests of all ages including families with small children , and definitely will not discriminate against them. We are an inclusive environment and will remain that way! Emidio Ciccocelli General Manager Bice Ristorante
We came here for our son’s birthday. Bice never disappoints. Love this restaurant. Unfortunately, the hotel property overall hasn’t recovered from the pandemic and we will not stay on property here ever again.
Excellent staff and food
very nice building and atmosphere. Knowledgeable staff. Excellent food and drinks
Our waiter was excellent. From his knowledge of the wine to his suggestions for the dishes. Our night was so wonderful we are going back tonight!
Outstanding service and food!
Fantastic and strongly recommend. Our go to anytime we’re visiting Orlando. Jay - the waiter - is great.
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!
Our waiter Paul was amazing and very knowledgeable of the menu and wine selections. We will definitely return on our next trip!
Lasagna was the worst I ever had. Salmon and other dishes were good.
Such an amazing place. I really enjoyed the view and the food. One of the best places I have been to!
Staff was incredible. Paul was our attendant and he couldn't be any more accommodating, knows the menu knows what to request knows your style and taste buds awesome experience. I am in the food industry and event department for the last 30 years and the dining experience at Nice in Orlando incredible. Thank you Paul our personal attendant and many others for your expertise in a dining experience
Great homemade pasta, excellent wine list, good and knowledgeable servers.
Honestly the food was spectacular, and the portions were good for the price. Great calamari and pasta dishes. Server was great with refills as well.
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!
The food and the service was excellent!!!
