The EPCOT Food & Wine Festival is well underway pleasing guest’s palates as they journey around the World Showcase and into Future World. We were recently invited to sample the new Food and Wine Festival dining options at the Italy Pavilion including dishes from Tutto Italia and Via Napoli, a brand new kiosk at the Italian donkey cart with new specialty cocktails and the Via Napoli Pizza window.
Our tour started at the donkey cart where we enjoyed a refreshing adult beverage – the Orangecello. Turns out this was a perfect drink for a very hot central Florida day.
From Italy Booth
Crispy Calamari with spicy pomodoro sauce
Spezzatino con polenta features beef stew with creamy parmesan polenta
Penne with Shrimp and Vodka sauce

From Pizza Window
(Yes, this isn’t pizza) Beef and veal meatballs in tomato sauce, parmigiano, mozzarella, and bread.

We also sampled a Bellini, which combines peach puree with prosecco sparking wine.
With so many options in the Italy pavilion for the 2017 Food and Wine Festival everyone is bound to find something they love. Of course, there’s also the two sit-down restaurants and multiple wine bars to enjoy.
