A new Italian restaurant is coming to Disney Springs this fall.

  • Portobello Country Italian Trattoria closed April 24
  • New Italian restaurant concept to replace it
  • Top Chef Master Tony Mantuano to create menu

Earlier this week Chicago-based Levy Restaurants closed Portobello Country Italian Trattoria to begin work on a large-scale renovation.

In its place, the company is developing a new, Italian restaurant that will be run by award-winning Top Chef Master Tony Mantuano.

The restaurant will feature a family-style menu along with craft Italian beers and wines. The dishes will be inspired by Mantuano’s “adventures across the many regions of Italy.”

“We’ve been grateful to serve our loyal guests at Portobello for the last seven years,” said Andy Lansing, president and CEO of Levy Restaurants. “We look forward to welcoming our guests back to the location early this fall when we unveil a new concept at Disney Springs.”

The new restaurant is expected to open this fall. A name has not been released.

Levy Restaurants operates two other restaurants at Disney Springs, Wolfgang Puck Grande Café and the newly-opened Paddlefish.
