Italy Booth Menu and Review (Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

The Italy booth is where you can find a couple of food options and typically a lot of different beverages.

Located in the Italy pavilion, this booth is usually one of the more popular marketplaces, and it may even have a long line. But, don’t ever let that fool you.

As we saw last year, this booth remains just OK and doesn’t offer anything you can’t make at home or get at an Italian-themed restaurant.

If after reading the 2021 reviews below you still want to check it out, you’ll find it located just outside the Italy pavilion.

If you’re entering from Germany, it will be on your right. If you enter from America, you’ll walk a few more steps to find it on your left.

While some of the drinks are fine, many of the options are overpriced. If you’re not an adventurous eater, this might be the booth for you. (FYI: we spent about $90 on just this booth. $90!)

Here’s everything you need to know about the Italy booth, including reviews, photos, and our must-trys.

Overview

Location: Near the Italy Pavilion
Nearby booths: Spain, Germany, The Alps
Nearby seating areas: Handful of tables and chairs inside the pavilion, outdoor tables nearby in the Germany pavilion, outdoor seating in the America Adventure pavilion, indoor seating at Regal Eagle (may have to check with Cast Member)
Not to miss: The Italian Margarita, Gnocchi di Patate with Vodka Sauce, Gnocchi di Patate with Four Cheese Sauce (a decent vegetarian option)

Photos & Reviews

Panna Cotta

Orange blossom Panna Cotta with seasonal berries.

Panna Cotta Italy
  • Price: $8.00
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 2.8/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Oh, so good. Light, creamy, with a bit of sweetness.
Heather: Tasty and fresh. Small small portion.
Felicia: The texture of Jell-o pudding with an unpleasant flavor. Don’t even know how to describe it but absolutely do not like.
Allyson: Doesn’t have much flavor. The texture is interesting I’m just not a big panna cotta person.

Gnocchi di Patate (Vodka Sauce)

Potato dumplings with vodka sauce, Romano cheese and crispy bacon.

Gnocchi Di Patate Red Italy
  • Price: $9.00
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 3.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: A decent portion with a good mix of flavors.
Heather: Another tasty treat. Again, heavy – but the gnocchi is cooked well and the sauce is good.
Felicia: Better than the Alfredo one because the vodka sauce has a nice tomato flavor and the bacon is interesting, but still thick and doughy and heavy gnocchi. Italy is almost never worth stopping for.

Gnocchi di Patate (Four Cheese Sauce)

Potato dumplings with four cheese sauce and roasted cremini mushrooms.

Gnocchi Di Patate Italy
  • Price: $9.00
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 2.8/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: White cheese sauce feels kinda heavy in the heat, overall flavor pretty bland
Heather: Delicious…just really heavy on a hot day. The mushroom sauce is flavorful.
Felicia: The Alfredo tastes like it’s out of a jar. The gnocchi is thick and doughy and hard to eat. Eating in the heat is nauseating. Wouldn’t get.
Allyson: I don’t usually like the food from Italy, but this isn’t a bad option. I love the mushrooms and the sauce. But I still find this booth overpriced.

Prosecco

A dry sparkling white wine.

Prosecco Italy
  • Price: $10.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 2.8/5

Our Thoughts

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

Moscato sweet white wine.

Moscato Italy
  • Price: $11.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 2.5/5

Our Thoughts

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.

Italian White Sangria

An Italian white sangria made with prosecco.

Italian White Sangria Italy
  • Price: $11.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

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 $11? Not sure it’s worth that.

Italian Red Sangria

An Italian red sangria made with Cabernet Sauvignon wine.

Italian Red Sangria Italy
  • Price: $11.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 2.8/5

Our Thoughts

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 ELEVEN 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, but great flavor. Also, the price comes into play majorly. $11 is a lot for tiny cup.

Italian Margarita

A sweet and tart cocktail made with tequila and limoncello.

Italian Margarita Italy
  • Price: $11.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 4.0/5

Our Thoughts

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.

Peroni Pilsner

Peroni Pilsner has been the best selling Italian lager for over 150 years and is known for being a crisp and refreshing beer.

Peroni Italy
  • Price: $6.00 (6 oz.) / $10.00 (12 oz.)
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Bland, boring.
Heather: Meh.
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.
