If I were just reviewing going to the bar for a drink, I'd give this a 9. However, I also wanted a little something to eat and the menu just wasn't that great (at least in my opinion -- and I love Italian food). That said, I went with the meatball appetizer and it was good. Service at the bar was top notch so we'll certainly return.
Pros:nice bar area, good wine selection, good service
Cons:not the best Italian menu

I don't think I have a single bad thing to say about this place - except that I felt underdressed after spending a day in Hollywood Studios and arriving in my jeans and tshirt. :)
I had the minestrone - amazing.
The mushroom risotto - to die for.
Go here if you have a night without the kids. Most parents I saw here weren't fully enjoying themselves because the slower pace bothered the young ones.
Pros:Great Service, Delicious Food, Amazing Wine, Great Bread

Front desk at the new Italian on the BWalk could not find our ressie so trotted over here.
First impressions pretty good, the bar and restaurant is very smart. But Oh dear that's where the good news ended. Over priced, poor quality food for the most part. Most of family had Calamari for appetizers, which were very dry and rubbery. I had the prawns which were very good the highlight of all the meals.
My daughter had the seafood risotto, which seemed to be made with rice pudding rice and was far to sweet and creamy for our taste.
My wife a salad which was not fresh. Unbelievable. My son and I both had a seafood pasta which was pretty ordinary. $250 later we had a few drinks 4 starters and 4 entrees. My wife was sick later. I saw another person tempura prawns which I know were $32. Amazed to see this contained 4 prawns. $8 dollars a prawn!!Typical Disney a lot of money for mediocre food. We now tend to eat off property as we find the cost very fair and the quality almost always better and unlike Disney portions are generous to the extreme.

My husband now declares this to be his favorite Italian restaurant in all of WDW. We were treated to a complimentary tasty eggplant pre-appetizer and some very good breads. The Arancini appetizer we ordered consisted of rice balls with a spicy marinara sauce that I preferred above the Original Il Mulino marinara on my penne rigate later in the meal. The Insalata Trattoria of organic field greens was a nice assortment of flavors, both in the variety of greens and of tomatoes. However, the hint of shaved truffles was lost in the acidity of the dressing. The Tortellini Alla Panna was great. It featured plenty of fresh green peas in a creamy sauce. Our wines were excellent. Desserts were huge, and we were treated at the end of the meal to a complimentary limoncello, served tableside from a well-chilled copper bucket. Overall, an absolutely lovely meal.
Pros:Very good food and wine, good service

I haw here for dinner June 7, 2017.
We shared starters of Arancini - so creamy delicious and Gamberi con fagioli - one of the best things i have ever tasted! My entree was the Saltimbocca so tender and prepared perfectly , the marsala sauce was the best I have ever had. I also tasted my husband's pollo fra diavolo. The chicken was juicy and flavorful. my daughter had the Spaghetti al frutti di mare in the spicy red sauce and the seafood was perfect. Everything was prepared perfectly nothing was overcooked (or undercooked) I loved this meal!
I also want to complement the service. Our waiter was helpful, made excellent recommendations, and was always available when we wanted something but not overbearing. He checked on us without interrupting us -so helpful and knowledgeable about the menu without being pretentious. I am going back!
