Pop quiz, Hotshot: you’re craving your Nana Stella’s lasagna something fierce but you’re on vacation with the family – in Orlando of all places. What do you do? What. Do. You. Do? You check out 10Best’s list of Italian restaurants, of course. We’re happy to point you in the direction of quality cannoli, premier Piccata, exceptional Alfredo and melt-in-your-mouth melanzane. And with price points and dining digs to suit every need, you can impress your clients, your mom or your S.O. with lofty menus or roll in wearing shorts, T-shirts and sneaks for pizza, pasta and profiteroles; no need for fancy-schmancy! Antonio’s Market & Café’s lovely lakeside location makes this deli-restaurant ideal for eat-in or take-out with a view while Enzo’s on the Lake offers a similar setting with a decidedly upscale tilt. Come for an al fresco sunset on the deck and stay for the signature bucatini alla Enzo and a glass or two of wine. Sample the wood-fired pizza at Francesco’s where you can take in the kitchen action at the bar-top or kick back at La Luce by renown Napa Valley chef Donna Scala, where a day of wild fun at the theme parks melts away amid the relaxing atmosphere of the Bonnet Creek Orlando Hilton. How you do Italian here is just a matter of preference.
