4. Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria – Italy
The crown jewel of EPCOT’s Italy. Step into the colorful, Tuscan-inspired dining room and see why this restaurant has a devoted fan base. This incomparable pizzeria is so much more than basic comfort food. Via Napoli truly takes its promise of authenticity to heart. Not only is the pizza baked in a wood-fired oven, but the doughis made with water imported from Italy! (Any Florida resident will tell you that the taste is noticeably better than ‘local’ pizza.) These mouthwatering slices and huge portions make for an excellent value for large families and budget-friendly couples.
5. Teppan Edo – Japan
Speaking of great options for large groups, this traditional hibachi-style restaurant is part food and part spectacle. Stroll into the beautifully-appointed Japan pavilion for a meal at the highly-recommended Teppan Edo. Admire the sophisticated décor and tasteful murals from the Edo period. And as you feast on freshly cooked noodles, vegetables, chicken, and beef – enjoy the infamous knife flipping and party tricks from the chef cooking in front of you! You simply won’t want this dinner to end.
6. Restaurant Marrakesh – Morocco
If dinner and a show is still your preference, then amazing eats and entertainment can be found at Restaurant Marrakesh. Remaining true to cultural accuracy, this venue is nestled deep in the pavilion and cannot be glimpsed just walking by. So, explore the beautiful and unknown corners of Morocco until you stumble into this eatery. Decked out in gorgeous mosaic tilework and intricate lightning fixtures, this Middle Eastern restaurant is a feast for the eyes. (Don’t worry. It’s also a feast for the stomach!) Dine on juicy lamb, kebab, and couscous-based dishes. While dining, enjoy the skilled belly dancers who perform in the center of the restaurant. As long as you save room for baklava, it’ll be a perfect meal.
