I came alone to treat myself for a birthday dinner on a weeknight. One of the servers literally laughed when I said it was just me. He scrambled to choose a table for me and sat me in a corner near the kitchen. Cozy little place, but I felt extremely awkward having to sit near the server station and there were only two other families when I arrived. After this it just got worse. That same server, who I also assumed was the owner, continued his judgmental "service" the rest of the night. I watched him give all his attention to the families, explaining the specials to them and asking how their food was. He did none of that for me. Luckily the other server noticed I was being neglected and eventually offered me a box after I had been sitting for at least 10 minutes after finishing my meal. I ordered the bruschetta, which was ok but nothing special. Also ordered their version of chicken Marsala which came with a choice of soup or salad. I chose what the server told me was "Italian wedding," but it definitely was not. No meatballs and filled with a ton of vegetables. My entree was good but quite overpriced. I had been looking forward to this treat as I have been eyeing the restaurant since I moved here. As stated in someone else's review, the service shouldn't be based on if they assume you're "good enough" to dine there. I was dressed in my work clothes while the families getting better service were wearing sports jerseys and jeans. I could walk to this restaurant from my house but I will not go back due to the service.

You want to talk about the perfect Italian restaurant with old school charm then Portobello should be the first topic of conversation. It's great for both a date night and a big family gathering. The food is absolutely delicious and the prices are very reasonable. It's one of the best BYOBs in Delaware county

This is a legitimate GEM of a place. I eat a lot and I mean A LOT of Italian. Their chicken parmesan with spaghetti is completely off the charts, I can't tell if they layer ricotta cheese underneath the mozzarella but it is an absolute MONSTER in regards to flavor and portion size. This is THE place to go for Italian in the whole area, salute!

My wife and I had dinner at Portobello Cafe for the first time this week and we will certainly be coming again! As soon as we opened the door the aroma of fine Italian cooking assured us that we were in for a great meal, and the penne vodka and fettuccini did not disappoint. Service was quick and courteous. Keep up the great work!

I love the ambiance and how accommodating the crew are. The waiters are well disposed, mindful and cause you to feel good and the food was delectable as well! I had tomato with goat cheddar and Grilled Salmon with prepared veggies and my father had the Lasagna. Everything was fresh (even the bread) the spices, flavors, veggies, and, surprisingly, the sauce tasted originally homemade. They even have an incredible sweet desserts menu.

Excellent food and excellent service. The food is fresh and cooked and presented with perfection. From the pasta, meats and fish to the deserts are well worth the trip to Eddystone. The staff knows the menu. My wife and I have been here three times this month and everything has been perfect. We will be coming back as often as we can. Portobello Cafe is a true gem in the Philadelphia area.

Best Italian in Delco, hands down! Always fresh, delicious and great portions. I’ve had almost everything on the menu and there isn’t anything I wouldn’t order again:)
