Loews Portofino Bay Hotel offers some of the finest dining on Universal property with Mama Della’s Ristorante, Bice Ristorante and Trattoria del Porto. There are also plenty of quick-service options, lounges and even a Starbucks.
At Mama Della’s Ristorante, you step into “Mama’s” home and let her cook you a hearty Italian meal. While you dine on classic dishes, musicians made serenade you right at your table, which will be in one of the unique rooms of “Mama’s” house. The full-service restaurant opens for dinner service daily.
Bice Ristorante is the signature restaurant at Portofino Bay Hotel and for a good reason. Bice started back in 1926 in Milan, Italy when Beatrice Ruggeri was encouraged to open up a restaurant and share her cooking with more people. Bice Ristorante is authentic and exquisite, preparing some of the best Italian food in Orlando in an elegant atmosphere.
Trattoria del Porto is a casual restaurant open for breakfast and dinner. For breakfast, the menu offers pretty standard breakfast items, but for dinner the menu changes to Italian cuisine. On Friday & Saturday nights Pasta Cucina is an option, which is an all-you-can-eat experience where you choose from your favorite pastas, sauces and fresh ingredients to make your own meal. The restaurant is also very kid friendly with a play area.
Sal’s Market Deli is a quick-service restaurant open nearly the entire day featuring Italian meats, cheeses, pizzas and salads. Situated right on the harbor, it is a great place to grab a light meal and relax.
The Thirsty Fish is located right under Bice Ristorante and provides a relaxing atmosphere in the piazza, especially on nights when live jazz music is offered.
The lobby lounge doesn’t really show any resemblance to its name and instead it provides a casual, beautifully-themed area to wind-down after a long day and have a cocktail with some appetizers.
Splendido is the poolside bar that offers burgers, fries, chicken, salads and more, as well as any drinks you could want while sitting in your favorite lounge chair.
Gelateria is a full Italian bakery featuring house-made items like biscotti, gelato, pastries and more. Coffee fans will want to try the coffee and espresso.
Starbucks at Portofino Bay Hotel is one of the premiere Starbucks around offering Starbucks Reserve coffee, brewed with the exclusive Clover system, which is only found in select stores.
