American and Italian cuisine is often served family style—off a platter rotating 50 feet above the diners' heads, which they can only reach through wits and teamwork. Bond over a meal with this Groupon.
$15 for $30 Worth of American and Italian Cuisine
On the dinner menu, red-wine braised short ribs nestled inside green-onion crepes ($14) whet appetites for Pine Island clams in linguini ($18) or slow-roasted prime rib with au jus ($29). The lunch menu includes corn-crusted oysters with Tabasco aioli.
The blonde wood paneling and walls of windows thrown open to the sea-enriched air make the interior of Porto Bello look more like an enchanting island retreat than an Italian and American eatery. The menu, however, keeps the experience firmly grounded in the old world, with such delights as braised short ribs in green onion crepes, gnocchi, and chicken marsala. The chefs embrace local flavors, as well, with Cajun-spiced shrimp and the catch of the day, an ever-changing helping of fresh Gulf fish.

“We had a great time. Good food & a great view. Nice upscale feel, yet still comfortable in Florida casual. Our waitress, Victoria, was excellent. ”

“Newspaper advertized entertainment on Friday night. We traveled almost 40 miles only to find the entertainment was on Saturday night. Large group was very disppointed.”
