Disney Spring’s Portobello Country Italian Trattoria
Why We Went: My family took a quick trip to Orlando before the holidays and wanted to enjoy dinner at the revamped Disney Springs, formerly known as Downtown Disney. After looking at all of our options online, via the Walt Disney World website, we chose Disney Spring’s Portobello Country Italian Trattoria and made our reservations through the My Disney Experience planner.
What We Had: Since there were five of us, we had quite a spread. Among our dishes were a caesar salad, mouth-watering flat iron steak, delicious grilled fresh pompano, creamy chicken farfalle (bow-tie pasta, asparagus, and snow peas), succulent salmon served with roasted potatoes, and a not so good Margherita pizza.
Something Special: Portobello Country Italian Trattoria offers guests focaccia bread with roasted whole clove garlic to eat while waiting on their entrees. It was absolutely delicious and a perfect touch to our Italian meal!
Noteworthy: The fresh fish was topped with pickled onion strips. Although unexpected, it added a delicious flavor and was ever so unique.
Best Part of the Meal: People watching all of the Disney Springs visitors enjoying their evening. We had a perfect window view to do so.
Bonus: Portobello Country Italian Trattoria has a huge wine selection to enhance your dining experience.
What Needs Improvement: Dinner was a little slow. Even though it was a traditional Italian meal, the restaurant was full of families that wanted to get out and explore Disney Springs, not spend two hours at the dinner table.
