Good not Great Italian in Downtown Disney

Generally very busy due to it's location in the Downtown Disney Area this restaurant offers much of what you'd expect from your average Italian place. It is definitely worth a visit if you haven't been there, however, there are simply a lot of choices in this area that in my opinion offer better... read more

We had a great experience at Portobello from start to finish. Our server, Emma, was fantastic in every way. She was talkative, efficient, attentive and helpful. The bread and garlic spread were incredible, Caesar salad and beet salad both fantastic and we all loved our entrees, except for my daughter, who ordered a pepperoni pizza and didn't like it very...

Someone else picked this restaurant and I certainly wouldn't eat there again. While our reservation was honoured promptly and our server went the extra mile, the food was well short of even average. My appetiser was very good and I was excited to sample my main course but, sadly, it was very poorly cooked. I had fettuccine and shrimp and... More

A firm favourite with us. Whenever we visit Downtown Disney we pop in here. Our server on our most recent visit was fabulous. Kids loved it too.

We are generally open minded and like waiting staff to engage with the dining party but at this venue the experience was distinctly odd. Our waiter described the pizza as "small and pointless" and the steak as "garbage" when describing the food on offer. We took his advice and the food we did order was equally average to poor in...

Food was very good. The bill had the cost of the food / drink plus a WDW dining plan allowance of approx $23 per person added. The gratuity was then calculated followed by the $23 per person being deducted. This creative method of billing increased the 18% gratuity approx $4 per head. For the meals we had, this roughly doubled... More

After reading reviews I was sceptic about going but reservations were made. When I saw no line up I was even more concerned as every restaurant had one. Once seated everything went well. Food was great, service was pleasant and dessert was fantastic. Al in all I was very impressed. I recommend the visit.

We visited here in 2012 the last time we went and enjoyed it so booked to come back this year. We were disappointed sadly. The selection of food is VERY limited with a couple of fish dishes, some pasta dishes, a pork dish and then a selection of pizza. The starters are very strange, and between four of us non... More

We found the food particularly greasy and oily. The pizzas aren't really what you expect of a nice Italian restaurant. We found they didn't have much flavour.
