Uninspiring Italian

My wife and I both love Italian food, so we assumed Italian+Disney would be outstanding. We ended up being neither impressed nor disappointed. The food and service were what you would expect out of a good chain restaurant on a busy Saturday night. That being said, we're at WDW. Average is not what... read more

This was by far the worst meal experience of our entire 3 week vacation in Orlando Florida. We are a family of six. First up we ordered drinks, I ordered a Pale Ale, my wife ordered a cocktail or so she thought, the kids ordered soft drinks, my pale ale cost approx £5 when converted to pound sterling, it is...

I ordered the half wood roasted chicken with garlic mashed potatoes and it sounded better than it tasted. The pizzas looked good so maybe I ordered the wrong thing but I think mama melrose is much better Italian food

Went to Downtown Disney on May 20, 2015. I have been to Downtown Disney about 5 times before and I would have passed this restaurant by also had it not been just curiosity that took us to the menu items. We had previewed the menus and prices for about 6 restaurants in the complex before deciding to give Portobello's a... More

We love sitting at the bar, being that we are 2 adults, married for ages and not looking for huge meals - we like to graze. The appetizers here are very good and plenty. The drinks are very nice. We like this place.

We had a great meal here while visiting Downtown Disney. The service was good and the food while somewhat expensive was very good and a large serving. We would not hesitate to recommend this eating establishment.

This is the first really negative review I have written. I have tried to think of something positive, but cannot. On May 16, 2015, My you daughters had just visited the Bibbity Bobbity boutique, So we tried to keep everyone's spirits up despite the disaster of a visit. We arrived and we were seated in a corner table. The napkin... More

Terrible service and just OK food. The Olive Garden Restaurant does a better job. Being on Disney property, I thought it would have been a lot better.

We know food prices in Disney are high, even fast food can be really expensive. Especially the Rainforest Cafe is extremely expensive for simple food. But we had never guessed that the expensive looking portobello would be reasonable priced. We walked passed it a lot but never even looked at the menu just because it was looking like it was...
