Bice ristorante is one of the more upscale restaurants offered at universal Orlando resort. The atmosphere is elegant, the staff is very professional, and the food is delicious but this restaurant is a little pricey so plan to spend a little money!

We were fortunate to have Ismael as our waiter again! His service is always the best!! Management went above and beyond to accommodate our growing party. We can not thank Bice enough for another amazing dinner!! The only thing missing was the Opera singers in the piazza.

We had a delightful meal at Bice’s. The food was outstanding. Francisco, our waiter made the dining experience even better. He was able to recommend dishes and the perfect wines to compliment them. The homemade pasta is a definite choice. The outside dining area overlooking the water was perfect. Richard, the bartender was also very helpful and friendly. Expect to spend some money.

Menu choice was extensive and varied. Was quiet inside and very clean. Wait staff was low key and very attentive and knowledgeable. Atmosphere quiet and relaxing. An overall great experience and delicious meal. It was not our first time here and won't be our last.

I made a reservation about a month prior, and was ushered to the loveliest balcony seating. Perfect weather. Service was very attentive and gracious. Two of our three entrees were very good. One was way too salty, which made it hard to enjoy. The ambience was gorgeous and we weren't rushed at all. Inside seemed a little loud and chaotic, but outside was wonderful. As to value, it is a resort restaurant, so it will always be overpriced, but nothing that I wasn't expecting.

We were very pleased!!! Francesco was our server. He made it a great experience! Everything was spaced out perfectly. Food quality was amazing. The Papardelle pasta was to die for! Their Alfredo sauce although not on the menu was AMAZING!! Will be back for sure for some great authentic Italian food!

Overpriced but food is fair. Service is not amazing. There is one good server I saw a bald man who seems to be from Italy but other then that other servers are distant and uncaring. Would not go again

Bice never disappoints. The prosciutto, tuna tartar and paparadelle al telefono were fantastic, just like at the Bice i Palm Beach. Bravo Bice Universal at Lowes Portofino Bay Hotel.
