Walt Disney World ®'s Best Italian: Disney dining doesn't necessarily require park admission. Case in point: Portobello, a casual, comfortable eatery in Downtown Disney with an atmosphere as rustic as its parking is free. Choose from a selection of specialty pizzas from the restaurant's wood-fired oven or opt for seafood and meat dishes chicken pizzaiola, milk-braised pork shoulder or a grilled catch-of-the-day. Pastas include traditional offerings (penne Bolognese) as well as unexpected fare(black fettuccine with shrimp) Outdoor tables offer up shaded people-watching (where better than at Disney?) and views of both the expansive lake and the charming riverboat that serves as the venue for Fulton's Crab House.
Lunch, Take Out: At Portobello, located at Pleasure Island, you're sure to experience a good Italian meal. The casual interior recalls the Tuscan countryside, and a warm, rustic ambiance pervades. Choose from a selection of specialty wood-oven pizzas and sandwiches or opt for seafood and meat dishes like handcrafted luganella sausage with polenta, shallots, and cubanella peppers in a red wine sauce. Waterfront, outdoor dining is available. Diners coming just to the restaurant aren't required to pay the Pleasure Island entrance fee.
