Every year the Italy booth never disappoints — in being absolutely terrible, that is.
But, this year’s Epcot Food and Wine Festival saw the addition of brand new items at Italy. Guess what? We actually didn’t hate them.
While we still aren’t huge fans of the overpriced drinks that are super generic, Italy slightly stepped up its game thanks to the 3 new food dishes and one new drink, the Chianti (no, fava beans are not served alongside it).
All this said, Italy still isn’t our favorite booth, but we are very glad to see it isn’t completely horrible this year.
Note: the entire booth costs $104. So, yeah, it’s still ridiculously expensive. We think you can spend your money much more wisely elsewhere (and suggest you do so).
Here’s everything you need to know about the Italy booth, including reviews, photos, and our must-trys.

Photos & Reviews
A freshly baked focaccia served with beef meatballs, tomato sauce, and burrata cheese.
Heather: I am afraid these are frozen meatballs. But still better than previous years!!!
Felicia: I really liked this. The focaccia is soft, the meatballs are flavorful. The red sauce is perfectly acidic and the burrata is more like ricotta but perfectly balanced everything. Only complaint is it’s a bit difficult to eat.
Cavatelli with Sweet Sausage Ragout
A serving of cavatelli pasta with sweet sausage ragout and crispy applewood-smoked bacon.
Heather: Definitely an improvement from previous years! I’d give this a 3.5. My issue are the prices for what you get. It isn’t anything “special” … but it is BETTER.
Felicia: Pretty big portion but rather bland. Thick creamy flavorless sauce. The bacon helps but otherwise not a very good item. Especially in the heat.
Lemon Ricotta Cheesecake
A lemon ricotta cheesecake topped with vanilla cream and strawberry compote.
Heather: Very tasty! An excellent cheesecake and the berries actually taste fresh!
Felicia: Absolutely love this. Mellow cheesecake with fresh strawberries and sauce. Light and refreshing dessert on a hot day. Would get this and the focaccia for a full meal.
Ally: Ok. I actually really like this. I’m a big cheesecake fan and the lemon taste is perfection.
A dry sparkling white wine.
Shannon: Boring, and kinda bitter.
Heather: Too thick of a flavor. I don’t know how to describe wine. Sorry, people.
Felicia: This is a good Prosecco, but I wouldn’t wait in the line for it. Kind of sweet.
Allyson: I love Prosecco and really enjoyed this. But, also nothing super exciting or that you can’t get at home.
Moscato sweet white wine.
Shannon: Too sweet. Didn’t love.
Heather: Please don’t yell at me, but I like moscatos and this one is really good.
Felicia: This is very sweet and, like everything else at this booth, overpriced.
Allyson: I like Moscato, but this isn’t anything exciting, especially for the price. Also very very sweet.
A red-blend wine from Italy.
Heather: Hate that Italy doesn’t give you brand names, but this is a nice Chianti and goes nicely with the savory items here.
Felicia: Loved this wine. Perfectly chilled red that is dry. They don’t give brand names so it’s just a generic Chianti, but I liked it.
Allyson: A standard dry red wine. Not my thing whatsoever. It’s too hot for this.
Italian White Sangria
An Italian white sangria made with prosecco.
Shannon: Delicious. Fruity juice taste. Mix it up to taste the Prosecco.
Heather: Just like last year, I can taste juice…but I can’t detect any alcohol so I feel like I’m being lied to.
Felicia: Tastes like pineapple, mango, and orange juice with extra sugar added and no alcohol.
Allyson: Tastes like juice and goes down easy, but $12? Not sure it’s worth that. It’s also super sweet.
Italian Red Sangria
An Italian red sangria made with Cabernet Sauvignon wine.
Shannon: Normally like red sangria, but this didn’t taste anything like sangria.
Heather: Great juicy flavor….but if there is wine in here, I can’t taste it. Also it is TWELVE DOLLARS. No thank you.
Felicia: I don’t personally care for this, but I think it’s well executed. If you like fruity and sweet sangria, this is probably great.
Allyson: Just your typical sangria. Not worth the price.
A sweet and tart cocktail made with tequila and limoncello.
Shannon: This was one of the best drinks at this booth. Nice tartness. Not too strong.
Heather: This is the only kind of margarita I’ll ever drink. It tastes like Countrytime Lemonade but at this point, I don’t even care. MORE, please!
Felicia: This tastes like lemonade. Couldn’t taste much alcohol. Another overpriced item but it’s refreshing.
Allyson: I’m not a huge tequila person, but I actually really liked this. The lemonade helped dilute the tequila taste. Really refreshing too. But also overpriced.
Peroni Pilsner has been the best selling Italian lager for over 150 years and is known for being a crisp and refreshing beer.
Shannon: Bland, boring.
Felicia: Not a unique choice but a solid beer, especially when it’s hot.
Allyson: I love Peroni, but I also wouldn’t spend this much on a 6oz. of something I can get really anywhere.
