The Italy pavilion is one of the more popular ones at Epcot. Who doesn’t love Italian cuisine?
Be prepared for a long line at the Primavera Kitchen booth, because this Flower & Garden outdoor kitchen seems to draw in the crowd.
That said, it’s not typically one of the better festival booths, not to mention on the pricier side. Just something to keep in mind.
They also sell 9 alcoholic drinks here, but we did not buy them for the following reasons:
- They don’t say what they are (there are no names or brands listed)
- They often aren’t good (see our Food and Wine review of the Italy booth, which served the exact same drinks)
- They’re expensive
But, we did try the 3 food items, so keep reading for our photos, full reviews, and our ratings of the food at Primavera Kitchen.
Location: Italy pavilion
Nearby booths: Bauernmarkt: Farmer’s Market, Magnolia Terrace, Funnel Cake
Nearby seating areas: Handful of tables and chairs inside the pavilion, outdoor tables nearby in the Germany pavilion, outdoor seating in the America pavilion
Not to miss: Ravioli alla Boscaiola, Arancini

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.

Photos & Reviews
Arancini: Fried Risotto Balls
Arancini, aka Fried Risotto Balls stuffed with Braised Beef served with Grape Tomato Salad and Balsamic Emulsion.
Special Diets: N/A
Shannon: Crispy outside, delicious inside. Had to stop myself from eating it all so others could try it.
Heather: The best part of this is the bite the balsamic gives. Italy is way over priced (in my opinion) but this isn’t a bad option if you are stopping here.
Felicia: For Italy, I thought these were good. Liked the tomato salad with balsamic and the risotto balls were good. But, it’s a small portion for the price.
Ravioli alla Boscaiola: Sweet Sausage Ravioli
Special Diets: N/A
Shannon: Extremely flavorful. Love the sweetness of the sausage and the cream sauce.
Heather: Another win for Italy. Spicy sausage and tasty veggies.
Felicia: This was surprisingly good, but oily. The sausage had great flavor as did the sauce. Veggies were a nice touch. Overpriced, though.
Bomboloni: Cream-filled Italian Doughnut
Bomboloni, aka Cream-filled Italian Doughnut with Raspberry Sauce and Powdered Sugar.
Special Diets: N/A
Shannon: Great little sweet snack. Raspberry sauce just the right amount of sweetness.
Heather: I think Costco sells these.
Felicia: These are very sweet and dry. And are cream-filled (which I don’t like). Wouldn’t recommend them.
Allyson: This is a repeating food option and it still sucks. Way overpriced for what you get, just like the rest of the booth.
