I have mixed emotions about the Italy kiosk at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. Don’t get me wrong; I’ve not had a bad experience. I’ve just yet to be “wowed” by something; I feel like I could easily replicate it at home. It also doesn’t help that Tutto Gusto is right around the corner, and I can take the $10 or so I’d spend on a couple items here and put it towards some charcuterie and cheese instead. 😉
That being said, the items served are substantial and have a fine flavor. I was pleased with the Saliccia e “Papacelli” Napoletani last year, and would otherwise not be opposed to reordering it.
The same can be said about the Ravioli di Formaggio all’Emiliana. Beefy, cheese smothered pasta is always a comfort food!
Believe it or not, I have yet to order a dessert here. The Cannoli al Cioccolato is certainly on the radar, so I’ll keep you posted if I give it a try and will update this page. I have seen the festival item, and it doesn’t quite compare to what is found inside Tutto Gusto. Just sayin’… 😉
Is Italy a must-stop for you during Food & Wine? I know some of our Italian readers will have a few things to say. 😉 See you in the comments!
