L’Arte di Mangiare Menu, Prices, & Review (2024 Festival of the Arts)

L’Arte di Mangiare Menu, Prices, & Review (2024 Festival of the Arts)

L’Arte di Mangiare may mean the art of eating in Italian, but this booth hasn’t always been full of flavor.

In fact, even though there might be a couple things here that are okay, most of the time the offerings are expensive and generic. So generic, in fact, that this booth rarely reveals the brand name of what you are drinking.

We hate that.

All items from L'Arte di Mangiare booth

If you’re spending that much on a glass of wine, it would be nice to know what winery it is from, know what we mean?

Anyway – the fried cheese is cute and looks good in pictures, but if you’re after good food at a good price, maybe skip Italy and go to Germany instead. Here’s our review:

Overview

  • Location: In the Italy pavilion
  • Nearby booths: Pastoral Palette, The Artist’s Table
  • Nearby seating areas: A few high top tables nearby and tables with chairs in the pavilion courtyard

When it comes to our reviews and ratings, we thought it would be helpful if you had a better understanding of our personal preferences (what we like and don’t like), along with if there are any dietary restrictions.

Here’s a breakdown of not only who is doing the reviews, but a little more information about what each of us likes and doesn’t like food and drink-wise.

Shannon (Founder)

  • Likes: Almost everything
  • Dislikes: Beers that taste “stinky,” anything too salty
  • Dietary Restrictions: None

Heather (Editor)

  • Likes: Strong flavors, anything made out of potatoes, white wines, all beers (especially stouts and wheat beers), doesn’t mind sweet (plain fruit is NOT a dessert. Ever.)
  • Dislikes: Things that are too spicy, anything with a bone still in it, cocktails with too much whiskey or tequila (thanks to having too much fun in college), some red wines, most IPAs
  • Dietary Restrictions: Shellfish allergy

Felicia (Content Manager)

  • Likes: Mezcal, savory drinks, stouts/lagers/wheats/sour beers, vinegar, tart/sour items, chocolate, fresh vegetables and fruits, red meat

Photos & Reviews

Mozzarella Fritta

Flash-Fried Breaded Fresh Mozzarella with Artist Palette Condiments.

  • Price: $8.50
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: A+ for presentation. Love all of the sauce options. Slight basil taste in each bite makes it extra delish.
Heather: Is it yummy? Yes. But it’s $8.50 for a small hunk of fried Mozzarella. Ridiculous.
Felicia: If this was $4, I would give it 5 stars. Good fried mozzarella and presentation is great. Plus love the variety of sauces. But the value is not there.

Conchiglie Ripiene

Baked Stuffed-Conchiglie Pasta with Beef, Ricotta, Peas, Pomodoro and Creamy Sauce.

  • Price: $9.50
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 2.7/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Cold and bland. No thanks.
Heather: The shells tasted as if they were cooked 3 hours ago. Very tough. Great potential – poor execution.
Felicia: This is a good, basic pasta. Beef, cheese, red sauce, pasta. Good, but not special.

Torta Ricotta di Cioccolata

Chocolate Cheesecake and Whipped Cream.

  • Price: $8.00
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 4.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Tastes like chocolate pudding which is a compliment in my book. Loved it.
Heather: My favorite thing here. Very rich, though – which I guess it is good that the portion size is so small.
Felicia: Well, I loved this. Nice cheesecake and chocolate flavor. Good size and texture. Big fan. Favorite thing at the booth.

Peroni Pilsner

A European Pale Lager style beer, this pilsner is brewed in Rome.

  • Price: $6.50 (6 oz.) / $11.00 (12 oz.)
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Quite like this light beer. One of the rare times when an Italy booth specifies the drink brand.
Heather: I just want something good. This is not it. It is FINE. But is it GREAT? Oh heck no. This is what you buy when you are too tired to walk to Germany.
Felicia: Turns out Peroni tastes just like Peroni, no matter the festival. Totally average and normal Pilsner.

Langhe Nebbiolo

A full-bodied red wine from Italy.

  • Price: $14.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Not bad, not bad at all. Super tiny though.
Heather: It’s okay. Truly not bad – just not AMAZING. I can’t get past the prices, either. Which skews my thoughts
Felicia: Slightly sweet, slightly dry. Easy to drink, chilled red. It’s very light and mild.

Prosecco

A sparkling white wine made in Italy.

  • Price: $11.75
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Not bad, but way too much money for a drink that doesn’t have the brand listed.
Heather: Honestly I just continue to be disillusioned by this booth. Generic “Prosecco”. WHY CANT THEY REVEAL WHO THE WINERY IS?!
Felicia: It’s Prosecco.

Red Italian Sangria

Mix of Italian wine and juices.

  • Price: $12.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 2.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Truly bad. Just a really bad taste for too much money.
Heather: This is a red sangria. Nothing more needs to be said.
Felicia: Tastes like light red wine with a hint of orange juice. Not bad but as is with everything at this booth, not a good value.

White Italian Sangria

Mix of Italian wine and juices.

  • Price: $12.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 2.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Tastes like bland orange juice? Not a sangria-like taste at all.
Heather: This is a white sangria. Just a regular old white sangria. Not even a tiny hunk of fruit tossed in, though.
Felicia: Tastes like a mix of pineapple and orange juices. Not a good value.

Italian Margarita

Italian Margarita with Tequila and Limoncello.

  • Price: $12.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 2.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Same drink they have at other festivals. Artificially sweet. Like everything else at this booth, too expensive.
Heather: Not unique to this festival – they have it at nearly every one. And it also tastes like Country Time Lemonade to me.
Felicia: Tastes like lemonade and it’s delicious. But don’t think there is alcohol….

Elderflower Sparkling Cocktail

Mint-Infused Elderflower Liqueur, Prosecco and Sparkling Blood Orange.

  • Price: $15.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 2.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Oh man. So sickly sweet. Nothing redeemable about it.
Heather: This is okay – strong mint flavor. But – it is very, very sweet. The price is a JOKE.
Felicia: Love the mint flavor and it’s a good cocktail. But is super weak and absurdly priced. It’s good if you don’t care about how much you spend.
