Disney California Adventure in Pacific Wharf


Healthy Selections, Italian, Vegetarian

Entree range

$14– $23


The trattoria is a popular spot for a Mediterranean-style or California-inspired meal, paired with a glass of wine from its extensive cellar. Braised lamb shank and sustainable fish with citrus pesto is delicious. The Wine Country shrimp and fritto misto qualify as full-blown entrées. And to finish: Authentic tiramisu with sweetened Italian mascarpone is an exotic treat for adults among the more kid-friendly sweets that dominate in the rest of the resort. Wine Country Trattoria appeals more to adults without children, though an improved kids’ menu and World of Color fixed-price dining packages has made this a more attractive option for families (Lunch: $34.55 adults, $22.66 kids ages 3–9; Dinner: $48.58 adults, $26.98 kids ages 3–9; all including tax). Note that World of Color lunch and dinner patrons each receive a center-section viewing ticket. Also note that the fixed-price World of Color menu is separate from the posted à la carte selections. The soup or salad and dessert sampler included in the viewing package are all excellent, but some of the entrées can be inconsistent. For a refreshing late-afternoon break, order a glass of wine and plate of fritto misto at the Alfresco Tasting Terrace on the upstairs patio. From a Richfield, Ohio, mom:

One place we all agreed on was the Wine Country Trattoria at DCA. The service was a bit on the slow side, but the food from start to finish was delicious and fresh. We arrived around 1:30 and enjoyed lunch and the parade, which passed by at 2. Delicious meal and a parade too!

Setting and Atmosphere

Arguably one of the better dining options at either park, the trattoria is a leisurely place to park yourself and family away from the frenetic crowds. Whether you choose one of three themed patios outside or the “patio” inside, this spacious bistro captures the California-casual mood with plenty of tile, wood, and trellised greenery, whisking you away from downtown Anaheim and positing you in the middle of California wine country.

House Specialties

Try the Pasta Your Way: spaghetti, campanelle, or fettuccine with five sauces from which to choose.
