Review: New Sunday Brunch at Terralina Crafted Italian Restaurant

Hi everyone!

We were invited to Terralina Crafted Italian Restaurant at Disney Springs to try out the new Sunday brunch offering. Held each Sunday from 11:30am until 3:00pm, the brunch includes a few items in addition to the normal menu. Here is a look at our experience!

Terralina is located in the Disney Springs Marketplace, almost as far as you can go without ending up in The Landing. The restaurant was formerly Portobello until a couple of years ago.

When we arrived, there was a special offer for holiday gift cards – receive a $25.00 bonus card with any $100 gift card purchase. The bonus card is valid from January 1st – March 31st, 2020. A number of restaurants in Disney Springs will likely have offers again this year, it is a terrific way to save some money on dining if you are here in the first few months of 2020.

We were among the first to arrive, and were seated next to the window.

The full menu was presented, along with the brunch menu. We were given a credit for the meal (we paid a full gratuity on the total). Because we were invited for brunch, we ordered two items of the three entree choices – the Egg Frittata ($15.00) and the Steak and Eggs ($44.00). We also each ordered a mimosa, which comes in several flavors – orange, pineapple and grapefruit. The brunch menu is smaller than I would expect, I would love to see a French toast item and maybe one other dish to round out the menu.

I ordered the pineapple mimosa, and Jeff ordered the orange. It was nice having a few choices, the pineapple was quite good in it.

I wasn’t expecting bread to be brought out, but the freshly made ciabatta bread with pickled vegetables and butter was included with our brunch.

The Steak and Eggs consists of rib-eye steak, poached eggs, potato planks and roasted peppers. You can order the eggs any way you want them, Jeff went with the dish as it appears on the menu. The steak was very good – not out of the ordinary, but nicely cooked and this is a large entree. The potatoes on the other hand are like steak fries and totally addictive. Fortunately my entree came with them too. I don’t eat poached eggs, I would order this with scrambled.

The Egg Frittata consists of spinach, mushrooms, peppers, onion, fontina cheese. What’s not to like? It has many of my favorite items in here – mushrooms, green peppers, onions and it was a delicious dish that I couldn’t finish (I did finish the potatoes, though). I personally find this dish a good value for $15.00.

This was our view out the window.

Brunch at Terralina Crafted Italian is just one additional way to enjoy the restaurant. I mentioned that I would like to see the brunch menu expanded a little, 3 brunch items felt a little slight – but again, it is a bonus to the larger menu. We plan to go back on our own for lunch in the next few weeks as now I’m in the mood for the pasta at Terralina!
