*NEW* Mezzelune Croccanti: Crispy Half-moon Breaded Mozzarella-filled Ravioli with Pomodoro Sauce – $12.00

These aren’t bad. They’re just fried cheese in marinara sauce, which is basic but good. That said, this is horribly overpriced.

*NEW* Ravioli: Shrimp Ravioli in Scampi Sauce with White Wine, Garlic, Lemon Zest and Parsley – $13.00

Ravioli: Shrimp Ravioli in Scampi Sauce with White Wine, Garlic, Lemon Zest and Parsley – $13.00

This is fishy and awful. It tastes like swimming on a Caribbean island. No amount of butter — even the pool visible above — can save this dish.

*NEW* Bomboloni alla Cioccolato-Nocciola: Chocolate-filled Italian Doughnut with Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread and Powdered Sugar – $11.00

Bomboloni alla Cioccolato-Nocciola: Chocolate-filled Italian Doughnut with Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread and Powdered Sugar – $11.00

These are simple pastries filled with Nutella. They’re another basic dish and there’s no reason to buy them at EPCOT for this amount of money.

Banfi Rosa Regale Sparkling Red Wine ($15/bottle) – $11.00

According to Banfi, Rosa Regale has a “festive cranberry” color, with an “aromatic [bouquet] with hints of raspberries, strawberries and rose petals,” and the taste of “fresh raspberries, with crisp acidity, enticing the palate with an initial softness, graduating to a clean and dry finish.”

Italian White Sangria with Prosecco – $11.00

Italian White Sangria with Prosecco – $11.00

Usually, when a Sangria beverage of this price contains more juice than wine, we would complain. However, since the wine in this drink tasted particularly cheap and unpleasant, in this case it was somewhat of a relief. The drink was supposed to contain Prosecco, however this was unidentifiable from the lack of fizz in the drink.

Italian Red Sangria with Cabernet Sauvignon – $11.00

Italian Red Sangria with Cabernet Sauvignon – $

Have you ever put red wine in the microwave? That’s what this is. We thought sangria came with ice and fruit, but this was just a room temperature liquid. The flavor was fruity, so it could have been really good, but as it got hotter, it was just too warm to drink.

Italian Margarita with Tequila and Limoncello – $11.00

Italian Margarita with Tequila and Limoncello – $11.00

The margarita was quite good as it tasted almost like a melting lemon ice dessert. However, there didn’t seem to be much liquor in the drink, as we didn’t taste much besides the faint hint of tequila. Overall, this is a tasty drink, but don’t expect to get much alcohol for your money here.

Peroni Pilsner (5.1% ABV) – $6.00 for 6 oz., $10.00 for 12 oz.

Peroni Brewery describes their beer as “a crisp and refreshing beer with a delicate balance of bitterness, citrus and spicy aromatic notes, combined with a fast and clean finish.”
