Located in Pleasure Island (just over the bridge from the Marketplace), the Portobello Yacht Club is a pleasant escape from the parks for a quiet meal.  Seldom crowded, it is one Disney's best kept secret hide-aways.  We like to have lunch there on days we plan to shop at the Marketplace.

The cuisine is Italian, and the bread comes with roasted garlic (YUM!)

The fresh Mozzerella Salad is both delicious to taste and to look at.

The entrees we selected:

Chicken Breast with Spinach (very low in carbs; >)

A Fresh Greens salad with Grilled Chicken

and a Grilled Chicken Sammie (We went "chicken" all the way

While this isn't the "best" Italian food on property (check out Tutto Italia in Epcot for that), it is a lovely atmosphere, and the service is excellent.  The price is in the "moderate" Disney range.

We Love Italian Food...But
10/27/2014 by Mary

We tried this restaurant, very hopeful for an upscale Italian venue... the price was upscale, but the food--not so much.  We were disappointed in the quality of the food.  Back to Tuttos in Epcot for us.

it was just ok
9/22/2013 by Christee Thomas

I went in with high hopes but it was just ok.  I would rather have gone to Italy in EPCOT to Via Napoli or Tutto Italia, after we were done.  It could have been just what we ordered was not that spectular and other dishes are more appealing. I was glad we did try it and it was not terrible.  We  had the Beef and Veal Meatballas as an appetizer and a wood burning oven pizza - Dottore (prosciutto, arugula, mozzarella) the crust was more of a pita bread then a crispy crust we were thinking it would be.  So out of 5 I would give it a 3. 

Great Rice Cheese balls
3/13/2012 by Ser Alan

Every few years we end up meeting a few friends at the Portobello Yacht Club, in the area formerly known as Pleasure Island at Downtown Disney.  The ambience is pleasant and usually pretty quiet.  I've almost never had to wait for a table here, even with no reservation.  This may partly be due to the tucked away location, you might not even know that Portobello is there next to Fulton's if you aren't looking for it.

Typically I find the food here to be decent Italian fare, and that was my experience on this occasion as well.  I had the Quattro Formaggi (4 cheese) pizza and it was ok.  The cheeses were very delicious but I feel the pizza was a bit dry overall and the crust was a bit on the bready side for my taste.  Ahnalira had some rice and cheese balls which were very tasty and our other two companions seemed to be pretty happy with their spaghetti and meatballs, and vegetarian san

Portobello Yacht Club Meatball Sliders
7/15/2010 by Franniepoppins
Portobella Yacht Club, located in Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World, has added something new to their menu.  They are pairing meatball sliders with local and organic beer.  This really does sound delicious. The meatball slider menu includes Beef & Veal with Parsley for $1.95, Spicy Pork for $1.95, Chicken with Sage for $1.95 and Salmon with Tarragon for $2.95. The meatball sliders are served on a soft mini bread roll.  The toppings are tomato basil sauce and freshly grated Parmigiano cheese.  The beer options include European Pilz, Olde Pelican E.P.A. and Blackwater Porter, each for $5.95.
Nice ambience, food pretty good
1/2/2008 by Ser Alan
We recently grabbed a lunch at the Portobello Yacht Club with some good friends of ours.  The fare was pretty much a standard Italian deal.  After my recent experience at the new Epcot Italian restaurant, I must say I found the food at Portobello slightly disappointing.  The flavors were not quite as vivid as at Epcot, I wish I could remember the name of the new restaurant in Epcot but thats the one I would recommend most highly if you are looking for some really tasty Italian food on property!

Still, the ambience was nice, service was good and the food was good so I give it 4 stars overall.
