Fodor's Review

Trendy, pricey Bice is the Orlando unit of an international upscale chain of Italian restaurants. Bice (pronounced "BEACH-ay") is an Italian nickname for Beatrice, as in Beatrice Ruggeri, who founded the original Milan location of this family restaurant in 1926. But the word "family" does not carry the connotation "mom and pop" here, where cream-colored starched linens set the stage for sophisticated cuisine. The restaurant retains its frescoed ceilings, marble floors, and picture windows overlooking great views of the artificial (but appealing) bay just outside. The food is expensive (a simple pasta with spicy tomato sauce is $19), but some of the entrées that seem worth it include the grilled swordfish with Sicilian caponata and the veal scallopine with lemon-caper sauce. Pastas and salads are available in half portions upon request. The amaretto cheesecake is a splendid dessert.
