Bay Lake >Epcot: Italy Pavilion
Italian food here just average. Italy?s Alfredo di Roma Ristorante is arguably one of the most packed restaurants in the park, but my minestrone soup and penne pasta weren?t anything remarkable that I couldn?t have gotten at my local pizza/pasta restaurant for A LOT cheaper. Bottom line, I think the restaurant at Italy is way overrated. My advice? Eat at the France or Canada pavilions, which house restaurants with much higher-quality cooking, and just stop by the to-go cart at Italy for an energy-boosting cappuccino and a deliciously creamy cannoli. While you?re there, check out the masks and perfumes in the shops. No need to stay much longer though, as the Italy pavilion doesn?t have a ride or movie.
A tony mix of Old World architecture, Renaissance sculpture and enthnic cuisine..
Authentic Italian architecture is the focus of the Italy Pavilion, which allows visitors to stroll through re-creations of St. Mark's Square in Venice and around traditional Florentine sculpture and buildings. A 105-foot bell tower serves as the area's centerpoint.
What to Do
Shop at a number of stores, which sell everything from scented candles to Italian wine (wine tastings are offered daily, for $4 a glass) to Armani clothing. You can also eat at the popular L'Originale Alfredo di Roma Ristorante, whose specialty is, predictably, fettucini alfredo. The country does not house any attractions, making it ideal for visiting anytime.
