"I pree-booked a Character Dinner at the Trattoria, returned earlier from the parks not to miss it and was really disappointed. I had in mind something like character lunch and breakfasts both at Disney and Universal, nothing like it. Two characters showed up (Gru and Bart Simpson), stayed shortly and left, only to return much later and leave shortly after again, the same 2 characters. Food was the same as other nights. So really not special, not worth it, quite frustrating... We should have just stayed longer at the parks."

"If you are traveling with children or in a big group of people with varying tastes, the Christmas Day Buffet would be a good option. They had a couple of interesting dishes. The risotto with fried egg was pretty good, and the cauliflower was great. Cold seafood buffet was ok, but the cocktail sauce was frozen in clumps. They did have mignonette sauce. Charcuterie was decent. I have never been on a regular night, but the interior of the restaurant is cavernous and pretty loud. I would not go again, unless I have to dine with the under 12 set."

"Open Table said clearly that champagne was included in the price. Not so. I was planning to spend at the most $400.00 and I ended up paying $600.00 because I had to buy our own drink. Open Table should be more responsible when advertising a restaurant."

"We were staying at the Portofino and had some friends join us at the hotel. We were a group of 9 and Mama Dellas was more than they were looking to spend. The swordfish was okay. The pasta bar seems to be the way to go. The salads are super large and could be split three ways. The mixed green salad was delicious. The spinach salad was bland. Service was good. Since so many of the hotel's guests are at the park it is not very crowded and the noise level is good. Entrees are mid $20's with sandwiches less than that"

"We had Thanksgiving brunch here and it was marvelous. They had a huge selection of the traditional Thanksgiving menu, plus a wide array of other selections, such as seafood and pasta bars. I even saw foods I've never heard of before that I tried and loved, like the risotto with an over easy egg and kale on top. The service was superb and the wine list was perfect. Our servers chose a nice Riesling for us which we enjoyed. The food was wonderfully prepared and delicious for our whole party. They did not rush us and catered to our every need. We were very pleased and will return. Our visits with Kevin (the minion) and Scooby were nice additions."

"This was my third consecutive year for Thanksgiving at Trattoria del Porto at Portofino Bay.
We keep coming back because of the tremendous selection of high quality foods at this buffet plus the added feature of character dining. But this year something had changed. No longer was a glass of champagne included in the $63. buffet price. The champagne perk now cost $9. per person EXTRA! That brought the price to $72 !!!!. This is a cutback that wasn't necessary. I paid the extra amount but it won't happen again since I will not be returning next Thanksgiving. I think that $72. will buy me a great Thanksgiving meal ELSEWHERE.

"We really enjoyed the Trattoria del Porto at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel. I originally booked this restaurant because it had "character dining" for the kids and was convenient because it was in the hotel that we were staying. I was pleasantly surprised that the food was also delicious. My husband and I both had the create your own pasta bar and it was excellent. You get to choose exactly what you want in your dish and how much you want of it ... oh yeah and its an "all you can eat" so you can "create" more than one dish if you want. This also comes with a nice salad bar and a soup. The menu items also looked good, but we didn't try any of those. The kids menu is also good. Even though it is an italian restaurant they give the kids non-italian choices as well (hotdogs for example). The characters (Gru and a minion from the Despicable Me movie) came in exactly when it said they would and they took time to go around to each table and interact with the children and take pictures. We did go in November and its low season then so the restaurant was not crowded at all. I don't know if the experience would have been different if they were in the busy vacation season, but I have no complaints about our experience. Our server was attentive and friendly, but not hovering and overbearing. The manager stopped by to make sure everything was good. Oh..they also have a little play area inside where the kids go play while waiting on the food. Its nicely located so that you can keep your eye on your child from your table. Service was great, Food was great, Atmosphere was great. I highly recommend this place for families, but it would be good for anyone. I would say if you are looking for a romantic place... this probably isn't it unless you wait until after the time that the characters are coming by when there wouldn't be as many children."

"While all other restaurants were booked for days we were able to get a same day reservation which turned out to be outstanding. Their pasta bar was delightful and service superb!
Good for families or larger groups. Very affordable for great food.

"I live in Orlando and I didn't stay at the hotel but this restaurant has the best pasta buffet and my kids love the characters too!! Only one bad thing is that they don't know what characters are going to dine with you until your there."
