Great food

Good quality well cooked food! Party of four and all complimented the great quality of the food. Service wasn't the best, very rushed. However the quality of the food made up for it.

This is a wonderful Italian restaurant, fine dining in Downtown Disney at a reasonable price, which is unusual, it is usually outrageously expensive in any Disney venue, with food that is questionable sometimes as to the deliciousness factor. We had a Limoncello martini in here, that was utterly delicious. We had the spaghetti, which was also utterly delicious. The sald,... More

I am surprised by other posts here. I have been to Disney over 2 dozen times and this was the best restaurant I have ever eaten at. The arancini (mozz/rice) was super, I had grilled salmon which was the best I've ever had and the beer and wine selection was incredible. We ordered flights of wine and the wine master... More

Portobello is on the water in Downtown Disney. Italian based dishes. Lots of reviews about slow service but realistically there are usually a LOT of people in the area. Good experience for us. A mild wait but nothing to get out panties in a twist about. I credit our good service to our young server Monica (I believe that was... More

Visited for family celebration. Service was below average but expected with automatic gratuity. Why do restaurants do that? Just drives poor service every time. But portion size and value for money was appalling. $26 for shrimp pasta with four shrimps that had previously been frozen. Mains arrived before appetizer was complete. Just really bad value for money. Hence no wait... More

"Good, not great," is the best way to describe Portobello. On a random Thursday, it was easy to walk in for lunch without a reservation (good). We had a fantastic table overlooking the lake at Downtown Disney (good). Our server, Daysi, was prompt, attentive, and took very good care of us (great). The food was all over the board. Our...

My wife and I had an exceptional experience at Portobello and even went back the next day with our kids. Everything was perfect from our server Nick to the bread with roasted garlic clove, shrimp appetizer, my salmon entree and my wife's gnocchi The setting outside was relaxing, romantic and we were able to sit right away without the wait...

Food was good, but not great. Took a long time to get food and restaurant was not busy. This was not good as we had infants and a 5 year old with us who wanted to eat.
