There are so many great dining locations through Walt Disney World and Terralina Crafted Italian is definitely one of them. If you haven’t been yet, you will definitely want to add this one to your list to check out during your next Walt Disney World vacation. Here are 8 things that you’ll love about Terralina Crafted Italian:
8. The location within Disney Springs.
If you are familiar with Disney Springs and where Portobello Country Italian Trattoria used to be located, that is where Terralina Crafted Italian currently resides. The location is conveniently located with The Landing area of Disney Springs. The location is also on the water and offers waterfront views!
7. The reasonable prices.
We always love a location where you don’t have to spend a fortune to dine. Depending on what you order, you can definitely keep the costs down at this location, compared to other table service dining. The pizzas are in the $15-16 range while the pastas are in the $22-26 range. This is pretty reasonable for a meal in Walt Disney World, especially given how delicious the food is.
6. The Italian flavors from an award winning chef.
This restaurant features delicious Italian flavors with a variety of favorite and classic Italian dishes. Not only that, the menu and restaurant was created by Executive Chef Justin Plank and James Beard Award winning chef Tony Mantuano. With these credentials and care put into the flavors, you know they have to be good!
5. The atmosphere and vibe of the location.
The restaurant is designed after the Lake District in Italy. Disney executed this perfectly with the brick and wood elements that are throughout the restaurant. There are also wood burning ovens as a focal point with the location that give a warm, cozy vibe while you dine. This is definitely a more relaxed place, which is perfect after a long day in the parks.
4. Antipasti selections.
The Antipasti offerings are the appetizers that are available at the restaurant. There are several great options to choose from, and they are so delicious that you are definitely going to want to give them a try. We recommend the Antipasti Tower so that you can enjoy a delicious sampling of Prosciutto, Spicy Capicola, Grana Padano, Bocconcini, Tomatoes, Pickled Vegetables, Grilled Zucchini, Parmesan Crisp, Olives and House-made Pecorino-Truffle Potato Chips. These potato chips are amazing! The Crispy Eggplant Fries are another favorite of mine!
3. Special event offerings.
The location frequently offers special events, happy hours, holiday meals, etc. If you will be visiting over Thanksgiving, then you will definitely want to check out the special Thanksgiving menu that will be offered, so that guests can enjoy a delicious holiday meal with an Italian touch. There is also a brunch that is offered at the restaurant, too! Always be on the lookout for what the location has going on so you don’t miss out.
2. The variety of different entrée options.
There is definitely something for everyone here. There are a variety of options including salads, pizzas, pastas and grill items. I absolutely love pastas, so I tend to be drawn to that section of the menu. One of my personal favorites is Linguini with Crab. It is typical linguini and crab meat that is made with toasted garlic, olive oil, asparagus, lemon butter and capers. You really can’t go wrong, no matter what you choose.
1. You’ll want to save room for dessert.
We are sure that many of you are watching your calories, but after all the walking around all day you deserve a little bit of treat at the end of the meal. Be sure to save room so that you can enjoy the Chocolate Paradiso. This dessert is made with Chocolate Layer Cake, Chocolate Ganache and Toffee Crunch. It is definitely one of my favorites. There are several other great options depending on what you are looking for in a dessert!
