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.
Business Dinner, 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.
