We come here because our son loved the food here. Mostly the calamari and homemade pasta with marinara sauce. Bread is kind of addictive . But they tend to be inconsistent . Service is good. Downtown Disney is a busy area and full of tourist. So for a local to come by you must be really good and excellent. This... More

We sat outside next to the water. We were there near sunset which made the view special. Service was good and so was the food. You can make it casual or more to fine dining. We ate there several times.

On our last night at Disney we went to Portobello's, big mistake. Service was OK but food was horrible.The table next to us had pizza, looked under cooked, over half was left behind. We both had gnocchi, they were hard like rocks and the sauce was like leftover pulled pork. We cannot recommend this restaurant, there are numerous better choices... More

We came in here last night as a third option to the Rainforest Cafe and T-Rex as they were both an hour and a half wait, this was only an hour. My two friends and I understand that Disney Springs is a busy place but eating at 10 o'clock at night is a bit far fetched considering we came to... More

Dined at Portobello in a huge group of 36. My daughter's softball team and some family members. They did a wonderful job accommodating the group. Menu is a bit limited but everyone found something. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. The food was very good. Didn't hear any complaints. I personally had the pizza and chocolate cake for dessert.... More

This restaurant was a let down. We had been to Mama Melrose in Hollywood Studios and there really is no comparison. The food was less than average, the service was average (was not happy to have to pay a tip) and the price we had to pay for the experience? Over the top!

If you read some previous reviews, they are pretty accurate. You get excited once you see the place, but then you walk inside. Very little charm or ambience and lots of NOISE. Noise is okay, but the large, open rooms create a different kind of sound. I'll take the bustle of Raglan's anytime over this. food is a mix, but... More

At dinner time last night my wife and I settled on Portobello restaurant within the very busy Disney Springs. We liked the setting of the restaurant as well as the pleasant staff and it was a bit of a respite from the noisy though enjoyable happenings outside. I had the calamari which the waiter said was marinated in butt milk... More

We are in Orlando for a family birthday and we have a party of 16. Our reservation was for 5:00 and we were sat right away. Our waitress was fantastic, she answered every question perfectly and all of her recommendations were spot on. I had the Chicken Parmigiana, it was very good but needed some extra sauce.

We went there around 9 pm on a thursday, no problem getting a table. We knew it would be pricey for Italian at a restaurant at Disney Springs. I ordered eggplant parm and when it came there was just lettuce on the side. I didn't realize I had to pay for pasta. Same for my husband, he ordered a flat... More
