Wisely we made a reservation ahead of time. It was very busy on a Saturday evening. Food was very good. I had gnocchi and meatballs,(asked for it special) my friend had lasagna, and she also enjoyed her meal. Upon seating they bring focaccia bread with olive oil and roasted garlic to the table... read more

I am on a family vacation and ate here on sunday monday april 20th and when we walked in we were greeted by a very friendly woman who shared her name with us, Amanda from Boston. She was very friendly and had a welcoming smile when we walked in. She helped us get seated as soon as she could. The... More

So refreshing to have a busy restaurant take such great care of its patrons. The food was delicious, but our server made the difference. We had several questions about the wine menu that our server was not able to answer, but she promptly got another server who was very knowledgeable about the menu. We never felt rushed as we sampled... More

The service is horrible. We waited 45 minutes between appetizer and entree while we watched tables to our right and left eat and leave. The excuse we were offered was that the "odd kitchen" was behind and the tables around us were "even table numbers." Forget that our waiter let us languish away without even considering that we hadn't been... More

Dinner at Portobello this week booked via the MyDisney Experience site (which btw required a CC and would charge a $10 fee for cancelation within a day!). Was busy but we were seated a few mins before our reservation time. Service was ok, but slow. No clean glasses for our drinks and had to wait for them. Food was ok,... More

We dined at Portobello Country Italian in Downtown Disney for dinner and it was fantastic. The staff was friendly and super efficient! The food was the star of the show! Best Italian we've had in a long time! You definitely want to make a reservation as it seems everyone knows how great this place is!

At Disney being a celiac isn't so bad! At this restaurant, like most of the others we visited, the gluten free options were very good. The waiter felt sorry for me and even found a gluten free roll I could have, and it was fantastic! The entire family enjoyed the food.

Good Italian food. Chef was willing and able to accommodate our food allergies very well. The Chef had good knowledge to accommodate a person with Celiac in a safe manner.
