Much has been made in other reviews of the fact that Kingfish is an Italian restaurant with Vietnamese owners, but I don’t find anything relevant about that. Well, except for the curious addition of spring rolls and egg rolls to the otherwise typically Italian menu.
We started with appetizers of fried calamari and meatballs. Nothing extraordinary about the squid, just your basic battered rings served with a dish of marinara. But they were nicely fried and not chewy.

Maggiano’s Little Italy is the sort of place that makes restaurant critics cringe when they hear one is coming to town. One has come to Orlando. First, it’s immense. Then there’s the issue of it being Italian, which in itself is not a cringe producer. But when you’re talking about an Americanized version of Italian food, and then factor in the mass production of a large restaurant, you can just start to picture the plates of spaghetti with sauce from an institutional sized can with meatballs that bear more than a couple of similarities to an eight ball. And it’s loud. And it plays Frank Sinatra virtually nonstop.
But it's actually a lot of fun, and the food is decent.
So don’t let a critic’s jaded bias keep you away. Go with a group and order from the family style menu. Choose the pot roast for one of your choices, and have the tiramisu for dessert.Read more
