Porto Bello Bistro & Lounge

Nuevo Vallarta is one of the hot spots inthe Riviera Nayarit and the vision of Maurizio and Mario brought Porto Bello to a new level by opening their second restaurant in Banderas Bay.

Offering Savory pizzas and other Italian favorites, this is a fantastic place to enjoy good food, a glass of wine, the beautiful view of the mangroves and a great DJ at nights that will boost your mood and make you feel like dancing!



Featuring indoor and al fresco seating, Porto Bello is overlooking a natural lagoon and the many sailboats and yachts that dock nearby. 

Many signature dishes from Porto Bello Marina remain, but this new location's menu has been enhanced with other Italian favorites, such as Bresaola with beff, mushrooms and Parmesan; a suculent Trancio di Pesce in Costra and a unique, Amaretto-based créme brulee that will undoubtedly leave you begging for seconds.

Extensive wine list - more than 100 wines.

This is our favourite (and most classy!) Nuevo eating spot! The service, food, ambiance, drinks, and view are all top-notch!! The kitchen is not afraid to put together a plate that isn't even on the menu - we always consider this a sign of a top restaurant! Prices are much more reasonable than the Mayan if you happen to be staying there... Try it! You'll love it!!!

What a pleasant surprise. The best Italian restaurant and food ever. I have Italian relatives, favorite Italian restaurants in Seattle, and enjoyed great Italian meals in Rome Italy , but the meal at your restaurant was without a doubt the best Italian food ever. Your lasagna was to die for.. Could I please please have the recipe or at least a clue as to what made it so good. I will tell many of your fine restaurant and encourage them to go there at least once before they die. Ken weber Seattle, WA, USA
