We had our reception at Porta Bella Italian Restaurant and were extremely satisfied. We had our cocktail hour in the Wine Cellar and our dinner in one of their new banquet rooms. The atmosphere was amazing and the food and service were excellent. We got nothing but positive feedback from our guests.

When we first got there the room was not done being set up. So we were sitting down while everything was set up. There was another party going on at the same time and felt like they were putting all the attention on them and forgot about us. We had 1-2 people serving us but we waited for drinks and for the final bill. Not the best experience for our rehearsal dinner for the price! :(Sent on 10/06/2016
