This is a restaurant gem! Everyone thought their entrees were the most tasteful they've ever had - a vegetable/pasta medley, a delicate salmon, sea bass and veal. You will never find a better mushroom soup (you will regret not ordering the large size!). This was...More

Great service, great food. Definitely start your meal with the roasted mushroom soup. How wrong can you then go with Portabellos stuffed with crab. The others were all happy with their lunches as well and also raved over dessert. Also have great iced teas brewed...More

Kennett Square is a great little food town, and Portabellos's is a very solid choice. My husband and I ordered the mushroom crepe, mushroom soup, oysters, stroganoff, crispy duck, and for dessert salted caramel cake and pomegranate cheesecake. Everything was good but we would most...More
