REVIEW: L’Arte di Mangiare at the 2021 EPCOT Festival of the Arts

We’re at the EPCOT Festival of the Arts! In this review of the 2021 Italy Booth, we’re seeing if L’Arte di Mangiare is worth the price!

We passed Italy’s booth, L’Arte di Mangiare, at EPCOT’s Festival of the Arts and couldn’t resist the wafting smells of carbohydrates. 

The entire menu sounded delicious so we tried one of everything!

Fried Risotto… Count Me In!

Price: $12

My personal favorite of the three food items was the Arancini. I absolutely love the Arancini from Via Napoli so I had a feeling I would enjoy these as well!

Like the ones from Via Napoli, these are fried risotto balls with Pomodoro sauce. The festival version also has sweet sausage inside. I’m still salivating.

These were priced at $12 and do include 4, which is perfect for sharing. The crispy outside and mouth-watering inside made them my favorite at the booth.

Lobster and Pasta… Yum!

Price: $15

Next up is the Lobster Ravioli, L’Aragosta. The three lobster ravioli are served with a slightly sweet vanilla-saffron cream sauce and shredded chili peppers.

My tastebuds were a little confused with the sauce and lobster flavors. I also didn’t find the chili peppers edible due to their stringiness. 

Obviously, the best part was the lobster filling. I do, however, recommend the lobster poutine for the amount of lobster and the cost. 

Bombolini… Deliciously Decandant

Price: $11

Last but not least, dessert! These Bombolini were absolutely delicious. Not overly sweet and just the perfect amount of filling.

Bombolini are cream-filled Italian doughnuts with raspberry sauce and powdered sugar topping. These hit the spot but I’m still not sure about the price tag.

There seem to be other dishes around the festival that are just as tasty with a lower cost.

L’Arte di Mangiare, which means “the art of eating,” is only here until February 22 when the festival concludes.

It is one of the more expensive booths and also features beverages as well. I’m not sure I will return to this booth for Festival of the Arts.
