Portobello Restaurant Review

: As Downtown Disney begins its transformation into Disney Springs, Portobello at Pleasure Island is the first to freshen up, losing the “Yacht Club” in its name and décor, reincarnated as a Tuscan villa. Levy Restaurants runs the place, and while the food is good, it’s nothing special. Informal dining rooms are decorated with golden hues, but if it's cool enough, try to score a table on the waterfront porch. If the wait for a table seems too long, take a seat in the bar and nosh on a variety of trendy beef and veal meatball sliders (available at the bar only) while you wait. Menu mainstays are wood oven baked thin-crust pizzas --- the Italian sausage and red onion is the best --- grilled meat and fish, and pastas. Start with the mozzarella-stuffed risotto rice balls or the radicchio and goat cheese crostini for nibbling. Some hearty crowd-pleasers include the milk-braised pork shoulder and the lasagna. Portobello’s version of tiramisu --- “biramisu” --- uses Orlando Brewing porter in lieu of espresso, and the odd-sounding combination is quite winning. Panna cotta with Winter Park honey and seasonal fruit is a light ending.
