Italian Restaurants outside Disney property

Does anyone know of any good Italian Restaurants outside Disney World, possibly in Kissimee or Lake Buena Vista. Please let me know.

There is a Carrabba's Italian Grill just South of the AK/AKL. It's a chain, but we love it and try to go every trip. Plus gets us off property for an evening.

There's a place called Pacino's up Irlo Bronson maybe about 4 mi from the Maingate. It's better than an Olive Garden and kids eat free + it's pretty inside, but I'd take Carrabba's over Pacino's.

As this post inquires about off-property restaurants exclusively, it is being moved to the Orlando Attractions board.

Strictly for the pizza- Giordano's. There is one on 192 (Irlo Bronson) not far from the maingate. AWESOME Chicago style pizza. The pasta isn't bad, but the pizza is awesome.

Cariera's Italian Restaurant (family atmosphere) and Timpano (more upscale) are both located off of Sand Lake Rd. (10 minutes from the LBV Disney entrance). Really good food! It's where locals go to eat Italian

I actually haven't found a better cheese ravioli anywhere around Orlando than Giordano's. In fact I've never had a bad meal there. I COULD eat there every night if the family would let me. It's that good!

(Just hit a Giordano's outsdie Chicago on the way home from Minneapolis - MMMM MMM! Stuffed spinach deep dish pizza - unbelievable! I wish we had some near home)

Chain-wise, Maggianos in Pointe Orlando is good but pricey.

For a non-chain, try Bruno's on west 192, near Houlihans. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but great food.

Another vote for Maggiano's! Great food, you can order family style. FYI - if you don't order family style the portions are huge, so you may be able to share.
