First Look and Review: Terralina Crafted Italian in Disney Springs

Benvenuto to Terralina Crafted Italian!

Terralina Crafted Italian is the newest restaurant in Disney Springs. The location itself is the former home to Portobello Country Italian Trattoria, which closed in The Landing of Disney Springs last year. But location isn’t the only thing that Terralina shares with what was previously Portobello. James Beard Award Winner Chef Tony Mantuano has returned to create Terralina’s menu, and he’s joined once more by Chef Justin Plank to run the kitchen. In fact, even a few favorite items from Portobello can be found on the Terralina menu.

With so many likenesses, then, what makes Terralina Crafted Italian stand on its own as a new option for dining in Disney Springs?

Atmosphere

With the April 2017 closure of Portobello, the space that is now Terralina Crafted Italian underwent a multi-million dollar refurbishment.
