Taste Testing Disney Springs Terralina Crafted Italian
Since Orlando’s version of Downtown Disney officially became Disney Springs back in 2015, new shops and restaurants have popped up all around the beautiful shopping and dining district.
Terralina Crafted Italian
At the Landing area of Disney Springs, you’ll find one of latest dining additions; Terralina Crafted Italian, located next to sister restaurant Paddlefish in the old Portobello location.
Terralina recently invited us to try out their offerings and who am I to turn down Italian?! We also heard about some of their special dining events coming up in the next few months and wanted to check it out.
The menu was curated by James Beard Award-winning Chef Tony Mantuano and Executive Chef Justin Plank.
Upon entering, Terralina feels very warm and welcoming.
Since they are labeled “Crafted Italian,” I was sort of expecting this vibe, along with familiar made-from-scratch Italian recipes.
After a few moments, we were led to our table, offered beverages and bread service (is there ever a bad time for free bread? nope.).
You can also add some Terralina Olive Oil to the special mixture. For appetizers we went with “guest favorites”… they absolutely did not disappoint!
Here’s some more of their current Appetizer options – I’d love to return and try that Antipasti Tower! It seemed too large for our party of 2. For entrees, we selected the Mahi Peperonatti and Seafood Cannelloni:
The Seafood Cannelloni is rich, creamy and delicious! Finishing up the main course, our server brought out the dessert menu.
As full as we were, we couldn’t say no to a few sweet bites! I’m of Italian heritage, and the Cannoli and Pizelle Gelato sandwich were calling out to me… Both were delectable!
Terralina is a fabulous Disney Springs addition. Everyone was so friendly, service was efficient and most importantly the food tasted like authentic Italian home cooking.
Right next door you’ll find Terralina’s sister restaurant, Paddlefish, located inside Disney Springs’ iconic riverboat (original location of the The Empress Lilly). Both restaurants are open daily for Lunch and Dinner, reservations are recommended.
