Tutto Italia Ristorante Review

From Mexico to Canada, World Showcase at EPCOT is home to many wonderful restaurants. It can be difficult to choose a restaurant when there are so many great options! One pavilion that never disappoints with their restaurants is Italy. 

On a recent visit to Walt Disney World, my family and I dined at Tutto Italia Ristorante. It had been awhile since we'd dined here so I was looking forward to revisiting this restaurant. 

Located in the Italy pavilion, Tutto Italia brings Old World ambience and serves traditional Italian favorites. We were seated in the dining room but there's also an outdoor patio with seating. The dining room is filled with murals of ancient Rome, rich colors and sparkling chandeliers.

Our table was a half booth in the back corner of the restaurant and it was absolutely perfect because my youngest was fast asleep when we arrived at the restaurant. We were able to get him out of his stroller and place him on the booth without him waking up. He stayed there and continued to sleep for our entire meal! The restaurant wasn't that quiet either! The little guy was just so tuckered out from a fun-filled day at the parks that he slept through dinner.
Comfy booths, perfect for naps!
The menu, created by award-winning chef and California restaurateur Joachim Splichal, includes authentic Italian dishes. We started our meal with some appetizers and bread. We ordered the "Fior di Latte" Caprese and Calamari Fritti. Both appetizers were delicious. 
"Fior di Latte" Caprese
Red and yellow grape tomato salad, balsamic emulsion, extra virgin olive oil
Calamari Fritti
served with Marinara Piccante
We each ordered something different for our entrees and there was a lot of sharing around the table. We ordered the Parmigiana, Spaghetti, Gnocchi Sorrentina, and Lasagne alla Bolognese. My oldest son who stayed awake for the meal ordered the cheese pizza from the kids menu. Everyone loved their meal! The portions were quite large and even after sharing, we had some leftovers. 
Breaded chicken breast, mozzarella, parmesan, fresh spaghetti and tomato sauce
Beef and pork meatballs, pomodoro sauce
Gnocchi Sorrentina
Potato dumplings, roasted tomatoes, pomodoro sauce, burrata cheese
Lasagne alla Bolognese
Traditional preparation from Emilia-Romagna with beef and ragù, béchamel, parmesan
Kids Cheese Pizza
I'm sad to report that we were too full to try any of the desserts. I guess that shows just how much we enjoyed our appetizers and entrees! If you love Italian food, or just love good food, then I would add Tutto Italia Ristorante to your list of must-dine restaurants at EPCOT. It's a solid choice for a wonderful meal. 

Tutto Italia is available for lunch and dinner. Advance reservations are highly recommended and can be made 60 days in advance. Make sure you let your Kingdom Konsultant agent know if you'd like to make a reservation at Tutto Italia for your next Walt Disney World vacation.

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Mythos Restaurant at Universal's Islands of Adventure

Located on The Lost Continent of Universal's Islands of Adventure, Mythos is an award-winning, full-service restaurant that offers an otherworldly experience. If you've ever been to Universal's Islands of Adventure, you've undoubtedly walked by this restaurant with its towering rock formations, waterfalls and ancient figures carved into the side of the building. The restaurant has been calling to me for years and I was finally able to give it a try. When you enter the restaurant, it feels like you've entered a cavernous grotto from another world. There are oceanic and mythical touches throughout the indoor dining room and there's also outdoor seating with great views of the park. View from our table The menu features a mix of Mediterranean, Asian and American cuisine including Spanakopita Dip, Pad Thai and a Bacon Cheeseburger. There's also a kids menu for little ones and a dessert menu featuring Chocolate Banana Gooey Cake.  On our first visit to Mythos, we

Bigfire Restaurant Review

Bigfire is, in my opinion, a great addition to Universal CityWalk at the Universal Orlando Resort. Having been a huge fan of Emeril's which was previously in this location, I was skeptic, but quickly put at ease once we were inside and met our server and have been back several times since. After a full day in the parks, we had a pretty late dinner on the agenda so we started in the lounge attached to the restaurant.  The cocktail selection is quite extensive, with bourbon drinks being the star here. My Manhattan was delicious and set the tone for a great meal ahead! The bar is also a great stop if you don't have a reservation, I found the bartenders friendly, attentive, and making great drinks! The open kitchen is a great feature as you enter the dining room.  The décor is modern yet cozy with touches of plaid throughout.  The highlight is of course the "big fire", where they wood smoke a variety of meats for the entrees. We started the meal with some wine a
