Tutto Italia – Epcot (Italy)

Tutto Italia

Eat here if:

  • You love dipping bread in olive oil
  • Your dinner often consists of a can of Chef Boyardee
  • You’re on a mission for spaghetti and meatballs

Choose another adventure if:

  • You’re a particularly adventurous eater
  • You’re looking for Italian standards like chicken parm, alfredo sauce, or eggplant
  • Wall murals freak you out

Alfredo’s of Rome, the original maker of the alfredo sauce, closed in the Epcot Italian pavilion in 2007.  When the restaurant reopened, the only thing that survived was the awkward wall paintings.  Fortunately, the completely different menu was still pretty good.

My uncle Arty absolutely loves Italian and we used to come to Alfredo’s every time we were at Disney.  This was everyone’s first time trying the new restaurant and fortunately, it got a good review from Arty.

The focaccia and olives are brought to everyone’s table immediately.  The olive oil was delicious.  The salad and minestrone soup were also great appetizers.

The main course wasn’t anything special, but it was large and delicious.

No accordion player and no one swung napkins around their heads.  So, the food was good, but the atmosphere wasn’t anything unique or special.

The restaurant did make me miss my grandparents.  But, they were definitely there in spirit!
