As a food enthusiast and social media influencer, one of the greatest joys of my "job" is the opportunity to explore the diverse world of cuisine. Recently, I was invited to Terralina Crafted Italian, a Levy-owned restaurant at Disney Springs that promised a true Italian dining experience. From the moment I walked through its doors, I was transported to the heart of Italy, and it's safe to say that I was not disappointed.
My culinary adventure at Terralina began with a delectable dish that left a lasting impression. The mozzarella stuffed rice balls were a delightful start to the evening, with a crispy outer layer giving way to the gooey, cheesy goodness inside. It was a taste of Italy that set the tone for the rest of the evening. (Note: these appetizer is not GF, but other GF options are available on the Antipasti menu.)
For my main course, I opted for the gluten-free Chicken Parmesan. It's not often that you find gluten-free versions of classic Italian dishes that taste as authentic as the original, but Terralina nailed it. The chicken was perfectly grilled (instead of breaded) and cooked to perfection; and the rich, flavorful sauce (served on top of gluten free pasta) was a testament to their commitment to using quality, fresh ingredients.
Dessert was a sweet, memorable ending to my meal. The Panna Cotta was a revelation – silky smooth and topped with a berry medley that added a delightful tartness to balance the sweetness. It was the perfect conclusion to an Italian feast.
What's Italian cuisine without a good glass of wine? Terralina has an extensive wine list, which also includes four wine flights. I opted for the "Crisp" wine flight that includes three different white wines, each carefully selected to complement the dishes on their menu. The flight was a fantastic way to explore the world of Italian wines and enhance the flavors of my meal.
In conclusion, my visit to Terralina Crafted Italian was nothing short of a culinary journey through Italy. From the first bite to the last sip, the experience was filled with authentic flavors and warm hospitality. If you're in the mood for Italian cuisine that's made with love and attention to detail, Terralina is a must-visit. I can't wait to return and savor more of their delicious offerings! Buon appetito!
