We loved this restaurant. My pasta was homemade and very good. My husband said his steak was the best he’s ever had- tender and seasoned perfectly. The balsamic vinegar was delicious too. Very nice atmosphere, but you can come in casual clothes. Service was attentive and friendly. Food is expensive, but worth it.

Everything was good here! However, I would highly recommend the home made fresh pasta. They make it fresh there every day. The Bolognese sauce was especially good because they cook it all day long. My friend had lamb chops and he said it was about the best he ever had. Everything was delicious here. It’s a nice atmosphere too with other bars and restaurants and shops close by.

It means the world to know you and your friend enjoyed everything from our freshly made pasta to our lamb chops, and we're so glad you were happy with our atmosphere, too.

We hope that means we'll get to see you again!

Grazie,

We went here for a birthday, and OMG did they impress. Listen to the staff, their recommendations are spot on. THey work with any allergies and requests and don't make you feel bad for them. The pasta is made in-house and you can taste the difference.

It was so good having you on your special day! Thank you for sharing your experience as well. We're all about making sure your meal is authentically Italian; however, we're more than happy to accommodate allergies and dietary restrictions with no problem. We appreciate you letting us know beforehand. It would be wonderful to see you again, and we hope that "again" will be soon.

BiCE is the upscale, Italian restaurant located in the Universal Studios Portofino Bay Hotel. The decor and atmosphere were theme park facade and felt very artificial. Our waiter was sarcastic and snarky, although I think that he thought he was being funny. The food was very good and the pasta had the texture and taste of freshly made.

Thanks for your feedback! It's great that your fresh pasta was delicious and you admired the way your food had been prepared. That said, we're disheartened to learn your service was less-than-kind. Our servers always have the best intentions, but we'll be meeting as a team to make sure we're always engaging with our guests in the most respectful and polite manner. Hope we'll get a chance to show you our service can be as excellent as our classic Italian dishes.

Until then,
Your BiCE Team

We at this restaurant when we were at Universal in 2014. We loved it, the food was absolutely delicious. My son had the pasta with the seafood, and I had the risotto. We loved it so much we decided if we ever went back we would stay at the Portofino and eat at BICE again, we both got the Bolognese. Service was terribl, but it was still a good experience.

Margaret, it's surprising to hear that our service didn't reflect our five-star standard of quality. We're known for much more than that, and we hope you'll return and give us another chance to show you an all-around phenomenal dining experience. Thank you for alerting us.

Grazie,
