Porto Bello's adventure begins in 1978, year in which Marilena D'Albora and Teodoro Cataffo, newlyweds, decided to open the restaurant in the old “Sea house” of Cataffo's family. The innate culinary art of Marilena and the entrepreneurship of Teodoro are the keeper of it.

Today they are helped by their daughter Nadia and by the fresh creativity of their son Dario, to whom the great passion for the food art has been transmitted.

Porto Bello in all these years was able to accompany the island of Salina in its development, maturing and evolving with her. Porto Bello's history is a way in time and in the historic memory of Salina, of the people who have characterized and have lived it.
