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.
Fantastic service. Our waiter was Brandon and he was phenomenal. Couldn't have chosen a better place to celebrate my S/O's Bday!
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 was average which wasn’t a great value for the price. Service and atmosphere were great however.
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.
Such a wonderful atmosphere and great service from Robert. Not only was he excellent from the service side but gave us such great info on the menu, new chef, etc. Food was outstanding. Enjoyed the background piano player as we dined. We will be back to enjoy more of the authentic northern Italian cuisine.
The service was perfect. The staff was honest with their opinions and it created a special meal and a tremendous dining experience. Everyone was so knowledgeable and passionate about the food and drinks that it made it like a visit at a friends house. All were so proud of their work it was refreshing. The food was so good. The pasta was very delicate and bold at the same time. It was not just good for a theme park it was great for a stand alone restaurant.
Mario is a wonderful waiter!
Did not like the fact that they Charged for Common Water
It was incredibly noisy. Could not hear piano player; could not hear ourselves talk. Will never go back. The noise level was NOT energetic; it was deafening.
Lobster bisque was devoid of lobster. Maybe it had lobster broth. Waiter was efficient but unfriendly.
Enjoyed an outstanding experience from beginning to end. Server was knowledgeable and did not rush us through courses. Suggested the Osso Buco as one of his favorites and it was fantastic. He guided us through the menu and made several suggestions. He went out of his way to make us feel welcome. Great execution of Italian food. Pasta was all made fresh and you noticed the difference. Lots of Italian restaurants in Orlando but this is truly an authentic experience that focuses on quality ingredients and exceptional warm and friendly service.
Truly wonderful. After going to Italy it is hard to come by authentic Italian food. This place does an amazing job. Everything was so fresh & the service was great.
The server was obviously more concerned with raising the check total than anything else and could barely hide his disappointment when we skipped appetizers and alcohol before dinner. The pasta was great, but we all found ourselves leaning in to hear each other over the live piano. We skipped desert because we are all uncomfortable with our server and tired of missing pieces of each other’s stories. At the end of the night the server handed the checks directly to the men, even though it was both female parties that paid.....
We had the best experience here at Bice Friday night! Robert was our server/maitre'd and we felt completely taken care of! He was a good conversationalist, recommended the most delicious bottle of wine to go with the food, and brought us a few little extras that totally made our night! I would highly recommend this restaurant, as my husband and I love to dine out...this was by far one of the best experiences we have ever had!!!
As always we had a delicious time at Bice. We have been staying at Portofino Bay Hotel for many years and it's always a treat to dine at Bice. While we generally graze at the bar, sipping on yummy blue cheese olive martinis, (or a romantic dinner for two) on this particular visit we dined with our son and his 3 best friends. Shared apps included an excellent and very fresh steak tar tar, beautiful calamari and our all time favorite pappardelle telefono for the table. While all the main entrees sounded enticing ...none of us could resist ordering one of their many fresh pasta entrees. When you think food this good can't get any better ...it actually can with exceptional service from our waiter, bartender and the management! We can't wait to go back already. Thank you Bice!
food was good and the service execellent there is nothing else to write
whenever I come to Orlando I go to Bice and for me it was the best restaurant in Orlando, but they totally changed the menu, the food was not tasty and the service was lousy, waiter very grumpy.
I was disappointed this time.
Just what we needed after a long day at Universal. Fantastic food, relaxing atmosphere, and overall a high quality dining experience. Robert was wonderful – very attentive, knowledgeable, and accommodating. Highly recommend dinner here.
Superb, authentic, constantly improving and outstanding service. One of the most unique and outstanding Italian restaurants in Florida.
If in the Orlando area it's a must dinner treat.
Very good setting and food.
Very good, great food, great service
Excellent service. Outstanding ambiance. Very good food. Great place to go for an upscale Italian dinner.
Our experience at Bice was outstanding. Everything from the moment we sat down to the end of the dinner was perfection.
Very nice atmosphere and good food. Service was a little slow and it was hot in the restaurant. However I will come back and give it another try. Hotel grounds are beautiful.
Great food! Great atmosphere! Very attentive wait staff! Very enjoyable dining experience!
Food and drinks were excellent. Wonderful wine selections as well. The service was attentive in the beginning but it took an extra hour to get our dessert and the check which is why I’m rating it low.
All 4 diners enjoyed their meals. My entree had cooled down quite a bit by the time it got to us, but others were hot. Good flavors..., overall decent meal.
Our server didn’t have much personality, but reasonably attentive.
Room was loud - food was fair to mediocre
We have eaten here One time before and were underwhelmed on that visit. However, we went back and had a fabulous meal with great food and service and just a wonderful experience. We will be back
My wife and I enjoy eating at Bice every few months or so. We have also had group meetings there as well. Great location overlooking the harbor at Portofino Bay hotel at Universal Studios. Nice way to have a quiet relaxing upscale dinner after a busy day at Universal Studios. Great, slightly formal, but still relaxing atmosphere; excellent location for celebrating special occasions. Good selection of freshly prepared Italian dishes, but they have also recently added several steak selections. Service has always been excellent. Some entrees, especially many steak selections, are a bit highly priced, but other entree choices are moderately priced for its location at one of the most upscale resort hotels at Universal Studios.
I went in with high expectations due to a recommendation from a friend. After the craziness of three days at the Universal Parks, I was ready for a relaxing, special evening. I was underwhelmed by all of it- lackluster service, decent but not outstanding food, and poor pacing of the meal. As far as prices, I have no problem paying for a good meal and experience if it is deserved. In our case, it certainly was not.
The staff did not pay proper attention to customer. They were watching a football game
Whenever we travel to the Orlando area...dinner at BICE's is a must! It is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is wonderful and the service is great. Emidio, the general manager, is always available and checks in with the customers frequently! Add this to your list of go to's for dinner!
