an Italian in or near Orlando that has outdoor dining and a "fake beach".. looks like ( or trys to ) a scene in Venice We ate there a couple of years a go with friends and they want to go back but I be darned if I can remember the name.. Help!
Loews Portofino resort at Universal. Beach is supposed to look like Mediterranean seaside village of Portofino. I'd have drinks and dine elsewhere.
Two excellent, if expensive, Italian restaurants would be somewhat near: Primo at the JW Marriott and Christini's one of the best restaurants in Orlando in my opinion.
Christini's Ristorante Italiano
