For my next post on my Disney dining experience, I thought I’d tell you about my mom’s favorite restaurant (and we had to talk her into going to this one) that we visited. It’s a really great Italian restaurant in a corner of Hollywood Studios called Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano.
When my mom asked me for two restaurant suggestions before we went to Disney, the two that I suggested were my favorite restaurant ever, Crystal Palace, and Mama Melrose’s. That’s how much I love this restaurant. I really like Italian food in general and this restaurant does it very well.
The entire place is like, Italian times ten. The decorations are extravagant and fabulous. Italian flags hang everywhere, little statues of babies holding wine and grapes decorate the entrance. I remember seeing spaghetti hanging from the windows. I love it. It is like going to my Nona’s house.
The food is no different. Spaghetti, tiramisu, the whole shebang. I love it!
Unfortunately, none of the desserts were safe, so even though I love myself some tiramisu, I had to hold off. The chef, however, was incredibly accommodating. Since I couldn’t have the bread served or the dessert, he gave me double the spaghetti and meatballs I ordered, as well as free Enjoy Life cookies to act as dessert instead!
Okay I know I look terrible in this picture but in my defense this was a candid shot and the main feature of the picture is just how much spaghetti I got! It was super delicious and I was stuffed at the end.
Oh, I almost forgot! I also ordered an appetizer because I couldn’t have dessert or bread. I ordered this delicious mozzarella cheese and tomato dish. I have always loved this appetizer, but I had totally forgotten that I couldn’t eat raw fruits or vegetables anymore (more on that in another post) and I was only able to eat the cheese.
All in all, I really enjoyed my dinner. The spaghetti was amazing, and the chef was super nice and accommodating to my allergy. A definite ten out of ten. It was a ten out of ten for my mom too, as I said. It was her favorite restaurant of the trip and she went on and on about it for days.
Anyway, that’s all for this post, but stay tuned, because next time we’re going to Epcot Japan!
Until next time!
