Primavera Kitchen Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival)

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 and 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.

This year, it’s the most expensive booth with the total menu costing over $90. Plus, the drinks are generic and the food isn’t good by any means.

If there is one outdoor kitchen you should skip at this year’s Flower and Garden, it’s Primavera Kitchen.

Be sure to check our 2023 Primavera Kitchen must-trys, photos, full reviews, and ratings below.

Photos & Reviews

Caesar con Gamberett

Baby gem lettuce, shrimp, Caesar dressing, and crispy bread crumble. This is a new festival item for 2023.

Caesar Con Gamberett Primavera Kitchen
  • Price: $7.75
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 2.5/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: So funny to buy lettuce in a cup, but the dressing itself isn’t bad. Just way too expensive.
Felicia: Absurdly priced for the size. Not great Caesar dressing. Just okay.

Tortelloni Primavera

Spinach tortelloni, sweet butter, pancetta, corn, peas, and fava beans. This is a new festival item for 2023.

Tortelloni Primavera Primavera Kitchen
  • Price: $9.75
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 2.7/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Big portion, interesting combo of flavors, but too salty, too expensive
Heather: I’m giving this a 3 because it is all so expensive here. The flavor isn’t bad, but I don’t think you should stand in line for it.
Felicia: Just mushy. The pancetta has a dirty meat flavor I don’t care for. The presentation wasn’t great. Not sure I would recommend.

Budino alle Nocciole

Chocolate-hazelnut pudding with cookie crumble. This is a new festival item for 2023.

Budino Alle Nocciole Primavera Kitchen
  • Price: $6.75
  • Special Diets: Kid-Friendly
  • Rating: 2.5/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Cute presentation, but strange texture. More gummy than pudding like?
Heather: It’s kind of bouncy. Good for kids. Texture is off. Maybe don’t come here.
Felicia: Super adorable but the chocolate is very artificial tasting and sweet. Probably good for kids.
Allyson: Not much flavor for a chocolate hazelnut pudding but it looks super cute and is kid-friendly.

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 Primavera Kitchen
  • Price: $6.50 (6 oz.) / $11.00 (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.


A dry sparkling white wine.

Prosecco Primavera Kitchen
  • Price: $11.50
  • 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 sweet white wine.

Moscato Primavera Kitchen
  • Price: $12.00
  • 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 Red Sangria

An Italian red sangria made with Cabernet Sauvignon wine.

Red Sangria Primavera Kitchen
  • Price: $12.00
  • 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 White Sangria

An Italian white sangria made with prosecco.

White Sangria Primavera Kitchen
  • Price: $12.00
  • 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 Margarita

A sweet and tart cocktail made with tequila and limoncello.

Italian Margarita Primavera Kitchen
  • Price: $12.00
  • 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.
