I was there with my wife on Valentine’s Day. We had gotten married at the hotel in 2012 and this is the restaurant we ate at while we stayed there after the wedding, so we wanted to spend this holiday there and reminisce about that big day. Everything was perfect. Our server was as Robert and he did amazing, he was the perfect level of attentiveness. There when you needed him and not when we wanted our alone time. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave amazing recommendations. He even, without me saying a thing, gave us a little discount as a thank you for coming back to them after getting married there many years ago. This was a pleasant surprise. I have nothing but good feeling about my experience that night, enough so that we will be coming back more frequently. Good job!

I went to Bice for Valentine's Day this year and couldn't have been more impressed! This is one of the BEST places to dine while staying at a Universal Orlando hotel. The atmosphere is just as fabulous as the food!

Way overpriced for just average Italian food. Pasta is made in house, so that’s a nice touch, but nothing was extraordinary.

The food was outstanding. The service outstanding and the ambience was very perfect for any occasion. Not a place to go all the time, just perfect though for any reason.

food is pretty blah for the image it's trying to convey.

I was staying at the hotel for a work trip and wanted to get a nice meal on my own. Made a reservation and was seated outside overlooking the 'square'. Everything this hotel does to try and make it fit the theme of an Italian villages just makes it tacky and cheap. The nightly opera singing from the balcony was meant to be atmospheric but ended up being way too loud, not good quality and annoying. The staff was nice. The wines by the glass were a limited.
I ordered a spinach salad and between the goat cheese and the pancetta is was a salt bomb. The pasta dish I had was also barely edible. The cheese tasted as if it had curled or gone sour.
this was supposed to be the 'high end' restaurant in the hotel but I was pretty disappointed in the food. The sausage and pepper sandwich I got to go for lunch at the take away spot was way better than what they served here. Maybe the steaks were better but Orlando is FILLED with steak places much better so I don't really get what they were trying to do. Over priced in my opinion.

Bice is a lovely authentic Italian restaurant. The service and selections were very very good and all pasta is fresh, made in house. The Fritto Misto (mixed fried seafood) appetizer was excellent, and desserts were lovely. It was a crowded evening so the noise level was moderately high, but it was not a detractor. And it is a beautiful space. I recommend!

It was my first time at Bice and I absolutely loved it. Before we left, I had already wanted to come back and eat again. The food came out at a great time. We didn’t wait very long, and the service was impeccable. There wasn’t one staff member that wasn’t approachable. Everyone was very professional, helpful and nice. I would recommend this place for all special occasions.
