When I go to Walt Disney World, I am always planning out my dinner reservations. I want to make sure I am eating all my favorites while I am there and, believe me, I have tons of favorites. I have a feeling I am about to add a new restaurant to the mix with Terralina Crafted Italian!
Terralina Crafted Italian, a new dining experience curated by James Beard Award-winning Chef Tony Mantuano, will open this fall at Disney Springs. The new restaurant, which will replace the space at The Landing previously occupied by Portobello Country Italian Trattoria, is currently undergoing a multi-million dollar makeover inspired by the design and lifestyle of Italy’s Lake District.
Set on the shores of Lake Buena Vista, Terralina’s sweeping waterfront views and dining will provide
guests with a tranquil escape to another part of the world. Just as in an Italian home, the kitchen will serve as the hearth and perfect centerpiece for guests to gather around in the restaurant. Each dining room will include eclectic decor made up of found art and pieces that share the stories of moments worth
celebrating. A newly installed veranda bar outside the main entrance will serve as the perfect welcome
mat for guests to relax and sip on craft cocktails, muddled with herbs similar to those grown in a garden
located right outside the restaurant.
Terralina’s menu will feature authentic, Italian cuisine cooked in Chef Tony’s signature olive oil, imported directly from Italy. The restaurant’s wood-burning oven will fire up a selection of artisanal, hand-tossed pizzas and fresh vegetable dishes. Fan favorites from Portobello Country Italian Trattoria such as the antipasti platter and signature pasta dishes will remain on the menu alongside new additions like mussels and pork chops.
“The new food landscape at Disney Springs is amazing and the guest choices are so diverse that it has
become a true dining destination,” said Andy Lansing, President and CEO of Levy Restaurants. “We are
excited to open Terralina Crafted Italian and share our vision to deliver authentic food, hospitality and
every last detail as part of a memorable guest experience.”
“It’s been an honor to lead the concept and vision for Terralina Crafted Italian,” said Tony Mantuano,
James Beard Award-winning chef. “We wanted to create a dining experience that would transport guests
to the shores of Italy. Focusing on the hearth of the kitchen, dishes will embody the passion and flare of
the flames. Executive Chef Justin Plank and I cannot wait for guests to come in and have a taste of Italy.”
Construction is expected to be complete this fall. Terralina Crafted Italian will be open for lunch and
