“Sooo Good!!!”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

Am I actually in a Disney park with more than a cold burger and fake meat chicken nuggets. This was just what my husband and I needed after hitting the parks at 6 am for the Disney One More Day Event. So good. So FAST. They give breat and olive oil and grated parm which is nothing really but in Disney it unexpected since everything else is so mediocore. Yummy deserts and a full bar. It's hidden off to the back. I barely wanted to share it was so GOOD. Will plan my next trip around this place. MANGIA!!!

“Fun atmosphere”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

Our family of four had dinner here during our day spent at Hollywood Studios. The atmosphere was pleasant and the staff was very accommodating. Personally, we felt the food was better here than the two other Disney restaurants we had tried earlier in the week. We had the personal pizzas and chicken Parmesan which were tasty. All in all, a pleasant dinner.

“Surprised”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

What a wonderful experience!
The food is terrific, the price was great for the excellent quality. Loved it!!! Nice limited menu, fish, pasta, chicken, and beautiful desserts and more.
When eating at the Disney Parks you pay $9-12 for pizza and burgers and have to stand in line to get it... this was a refreshing change and the value was so much better! We will be going back soon!

“Tasty food, freshly prepared”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

Unlike many other restaurants at Disney, this one has an open kitchen so you can feel more confident that your food is being freshly prepared compared to other restaurants.

This restaurant participates in the Fantasmic DIning Package, but you must make your reservation for that package ahead of time. It was a fixed price for the meal ($35 for adults, $12 for kids), and the adults got one appetizer, entree, dessert and beverage each, along with the pass to get into the reserved seating area at Fantasmic that night. (Keep in mind that Fantasmic can be canceled due to inclement weather!)

All aspects of our meal were excellent, and they brought out a special dessert assortment for us to finish our meal.

“Decent but nothing special”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

Firstly this restaurant is now at the Hollywood Studios attraction. We had to wait about 10 minutes after reservation time as the place was packed. i was in town for the half marathon and i think we were all carbo loading. service was slow but friendly. antipasto dish was just ok, basil and mozz and tomatoes was ok but light on basil. a pasta dish was overly coated in sauce. flatbread was again just OK. bread was warm and served with olive oil dipping sauce. ambiance is really nice, but for the price i would probably not come back here.
