We stopped in with no reservation for a late lunch after a morning of shopping in DTD. We were seated right away. The atmosphere and decor are very nice. Our server came right away and took our drink order- she was very friendly and helpful, and suggested the orange-tini for me, which was excellent. We ordered the gnocchi, and caparese... More

We stopped in here because they have wood fired pizzas and having just finished a long cruise-and the accompanying bland food- we were dying for something flavourful. The pizzas were delicious and the wine flights-particularly the Tuscan one-were really lovely. The star of the show was the chocolate paradiso cake. Absolutely the most delicious chocolate cake I have had in... More

We go to the Disney area at least twice a year to visit family, and have never missed a visit to Portobello. The food is excellent (chicken cacciatore this visit - excellent!). Had a great selection, from full meals to individual pizzas. Dinner with drinks for three was under $100 - in a good Disney area restaurant a great deal.... More

Went to Downtown Disney for an afternoon stroll with my mother and daughter. Mom remembered an appetizer she had at Portobello's over 15 years ago. Looked at the menu and it is stilled served, so in we went. What a great lunch. The food was done just right, and the service was more than excellent. The roasted garlic and rosemary... More

So many negative reviews. Not our experience at all. We sat late on a Wed night, about 10pm. We are not too good to sit at a high top in the bar and glad that we did. Our server Shaun apparently was asked to take our table and we were glad he did. Our experience was NOTHING like what people... More

We stopped here for lunch just to get a taste of Disney on our annual Florida vacation (didn't visit rest of Disney this time). Despite what recent posts indicate, we really enjoyed it. Due to construction currently going on at Downtown Disney, it was an absolute pain to get there, but I felt the food was very good, authentic, and... More

Not sure how to say REALLY not impressed. Almost every interaction with an employee was short and felt like we were an interruption of their work. Food was decent. Restaurant was very noisy. I spoke to the manager who gave excuse after excuse but no real answers. Finally spoke to guest relations at downtown Disney and was well taken care... More

This is an OK place for dinner, if you don't have an ADR for any other downtown Disney location. Too little taste for too high a bill.
