    It would have been perfect had they not charged us to split a pasta appetizer even though we both ordered full entrées as well. The $5 sharing charge was listed under the entrees not the first course section of the menu.

    Everything was fantastic. The carpaccio was amazing. The lasagna was some of the best I have ever had. Son greatly enjoyed the filet which looked to be extremely tender. My wife had a pasta dish stuffed with short ribs that tasted amazing as well. Best food on property at Universal that I have had so far. Been a couple times and so far they do not miss.

    Food was good; service was good. Didn’t say anything, but was a little disappointed that we were seated at a table with plenty of traffic and noise. There were two open tables by the windows, one that sat empty for a long time. I had noted in our reservation that we were celebrating our 33rd wedding anniversary, however they never mentioned anything about it.

    The food was just okay. The steak was ordered medium rare but came well done. My son was hungry, so he just ate it and didn't want to send it back. My risotto was insanely hot, like it had been microwaved, and the bits of steak were small and overcooked. The drinks were great, but for the price and what we expected, it was just disappointing. The alfredo was good, and the penne was good, too. Nothing exceptional. I'd come for cocktails with a view and skip the dinner.

    The food was very good and Caesar salad was rated best ever by someone in our party. Crème Brûlée was not made correctly and had scrambled egg texture, sad, because flavor was okay. Our waiter was great and his recommendations were spot on. There is a lot of amazing Italian cuisine where we live, so we might be picky. Experience over all was great and we had a good time

    This was our dress up dinner night. Our waiter was amazing! Gave us great detail on menu items as well as choice wine. They were prompt and very accommodating. Our 9 year old ask lots of questions and he answered with explanation and with a smile of a teacher. We enjoyed our evening tremendously!

    This was my first time at BiCE, and it was such a pleasant surprise. I tried the tagliatelle with prosciutto, and it was honestly one of the best pasta dishes I’ve ever had anywhere. The tomato cream sauce was like velvet. I couldn’t stop going on about it. One of those recipes I am going try to make at home, it was so good. The salads and desserts were also delicious. My daughter enjoyed the hell out of her fettuccini Alfredo. Our waiter was very good. My only minor complaint was that the host was a bit standoffish. And that’s about it. The food is delicious. I’d like to go back and try more of their pasta.

    Wonderful trip to Portofino Lowes. The music in the restaurant was loud and it was difficult to have conversation. The waitstaff were incredible and knew exactly how to please this real Italian woman. Accessible note -I am glad to have rented a mobility scooter for our trip. It was extremely difficult/far to get to the restaurant even once arriving at the hotel. (2 Universal shuttles taking over an hour including wait times. )

    What an amazing venue in both food and service. Our server checked in with us, helped us stop outside to listen to the Opera singers and really made it a great experience. The food was nothing short of amazing! We have been to Italy four times, so that comment says a lot. We can't wait to be back, this dinner experience was a great way to end the trip!
