Great service and view. We enjoyed the meal. I tried two half portions and the caesar salad that was very good. The bread was great. The best of the three dishes was the Cappellaccio al brasato. I also recommend the martini.
Love this place!!! Had such a great night with my girlfriend. The food was amazing and the customer service was soooo good. Our server Alessio was such a nice and sweet person. Thank you so much for this great night !!!
We had dinner reservations, if you go try to get it on the balcony area. Amazing service, food and views.
BICE is the best kept secret at Loews Portofino resort. Although parking here is very expensive, the restaurant validates the parking, so it is free if you dine here. The grilled octopus was delicious. The Ossobuco (Veal shank) was spectacular. Overall a very pleasant meal with spectacular views of the harbor.
Inside the Portofino Resort area, easy stroll from your room. The menu tends to Italian, it should this is the theme of the hotel. Seafood selections were prepared to wife's satisfaction, eggplant dish was a variant of eggplant parmigiana it was divine. Wine selection was huge however I am not a wine person. The bar has a vast selection of spirits and beer.
The highlight of our meal was the marriage proposal at the table next to us. The lowlight was the couple each Facetiming their friends to tell everyone. It was more than a little bit irritating and annoying. The service at Bice is excellent - authentic Italians performing exceptionally well. The space has very good atmosphere. The food we found to be pretty average. Neither of us was very impressed. I had a Caesar Salad (better than average) and a Filet (average at best). My wife had the scallops, which she found pretty ordinary. Great location, good facility, excellent service and average food yields a four star review.
Iâ€™ve lost count of the number of times iâ€™ve Eaten at this fabulous establishment; I look forward to many more. Always staying for 14 nights at Portofino, as weâ€™re from England an ideal number of nights owing to length of flight, a night a the Bice is an absolute must.....well several nights. In fact, this time around my husband and I dined here 5 times. We were welcomed back by the amazing team and every meal was incredible. The ambience is simply superb. The waiters are happy to make recommendations and there is always great attention to detail. Going back, usually twice yearly, itâ€™s very telling that the restaurant retains staff so well. This is an indication that the Bice treats its staff well. Edwin is a welcome addition to the team and took cate of us on a few occasions. The lasagne and fillet are my firm favourites and always impress. However, itâ€™s the whole package that I find so impressive. The staff are professional, knowledgeable and genuinely warm. I simply canâ€™t recommend highly enough. Thank you for another amazing set of experiences and I look forward to many more when I return, in August, with my daughter.
We celebrated our birthday dinner here and the ambience did not disappoint. We enjoyed the parma prosciutto and cantaloupe appetizer which was very nice, the Braised Veal Shank Osso Bucco with saffron risotto, and the grilled 9-oz Prime Chairman beef tenderloin center cut filet with truffle potatoes and vegetables. The Osso Bucco was amazing but I honestly didn't like how my steak was cooked. I ordered it medium and it was definitely rare with blood all over the plate. The flavor was delicious but I only ate the outer edges that were cooked. Sadly it was a bit of a waste and I didn't feel like sending it back because I had already eaten some before I realized the middle was raw. Dessert was a creme brulee that was out of this world. This restaurant is lovely but make sure you clarify with your waiter how your steak will be cooked. Then you will not be disappointed or leave hungry like I did.
We were in Orlando for a conference. We had the Antipasto platter, hat shaped pasta and the steak. Service was awesome. Antipasta platter was awesome! Hat shaped pasta and steak were ok. We are used to great steak restaurants and authentic Italian restaurants. Outdoor seating was really good. Along wall overlooking the "Venice" area.
I just wanted to say how amazing the manager Mr. Ciccocelli was. He treated us like family and really resects his customers. Please make sure you make a reservation because it fills up fast...
Great food cant wait to go back
We live here in Orlando and at least once a year or more, go here for some special! It is romantic, beautiful inside, staff is elegant and poised. A wonderful evening out and elegant. Food is always exquisite.
Visité el restaurant navidad, y la vista, la música, la comida fue magnifica. Creo que es el mejor lugar para comer pasta en la ciudad! Lo único que no me agradó fue la atención del mesero. Fue poco receptivo para atendendernos, y explicar los platos. Se entrometía entre mi acompañante y yo para servir las bebidas. Realmente, aparentaba saber servir, pero su trato fue, muy desagradable.
I have been here twice. Great place to dine. Loved the live piano, excellent stake and wine and overall service from the staff. Highly recommend this restaurant for fine dining.
Localizado dentro de um hotel (Porto Bay) perto da Universal, o Bice faz parte de um cenÃ¡rio bem elaborado: Uma praÃ§a italiana Ã beira de um lago Com excelentes pratos, uma boa carta de vinhos e um atendimento primoroso, levam a uma experiÃªncia Ãºnica
Bice was fabulous. Generally the service was excellent (one night just a little slow, and no service at the bar while we waited for our table). We went in a fairly quiet week, although one night was busy and a reservation was essential. Spritz yummy; wines by the glass good and generous. Everything we ate was great, but the strozzapreti with sausage ragu was truly divine. Make note - I am about to email you for the recipe!!
We had another splendid dinner at Bice. The restaurant is beautiful and the food is to die for. Our Italian waiter gave us a 5 stars service. Can't wait to go back!! Bellissimo
To start off with this review is five stars due to the fantastic service. Alex was wonderful, very attentive, precise and thoughtful. The food was good, we didn't have a lot just a few appetizers, tiramisu and wine. The outdoor dining with a view of the bay was great!
Really pretty area, the restaurant has great food. We had a selected menu for the event we attended. The staff were great and attentive. I had a small hiccup with my meal and they were very apologetic and wanted to do whatever to make it right.
Myself and my boyfriend visited this restaurant for the first time and we will can 100% say we will be back! The food is very authentic and has good portion sizes. There is a good selection of pasta, fish and red meat and to accompany these dishes was a great variety of wines. The staff are amazing here very helpful and attentive and little did I know that they knew that my boyfriend was going to propose to me there so when he did we received a free home made carrot cake and vanilla gelato which was lovely of them to do that. The settings that surround BiCE really do make you feel like your in another country just looking out onto a lake! It really is picturesque and has a very nice feel to it! I would recommend anyone to come here it really is like your in Italy in a authentic restaurant.
