Tutto Gusto, a new wine bar
that will be adjacent to Tutto Italia Ristorante, is set to open in early May as part of the restaurant’s recent refurbishment.
We can’t wait to add this location to our Drinking Around the World itinerary!
Nestled next to Tutto Italia Ristorante in Epcot’s Italy pavilion, Tutto Gusto will feature a cozy 96-seat space located in the former lobby space and extending toward Via Napoli.
The new wine bar will take over Tutto Italia’s former lobby space. Stone walls and floors, vaulted ceilings, and a fireplace will create the atmosphere of an Italian wine cellar.
The soon-to-be-hot-spot will be open to patrons from 11:30AM to 9PM to enjoy over 200 Italian wines and what sounds like an amazing selection of small plates and appetizers.
According to the DisneyParks Blog, this venue will be part of the Disney Dining Plan. We’re not sure yet if it will be considered a one-credit or two-credit location, but either way, this will make Italy the only pavilion with three table-service eateries and zero counter-service spots.
On the Tutto Gusto menu, choose from sliced meats, Italian cheeses, Panini sandwiches, and small plates. Cavatappi pasta will be used in all pasta dishes, and guests will be able to choose from tomato and bufala mozzarella; shrimp, chilis, garlic and tomato; and arugula, potato, pancetta, tomatoes, and asiago cheese to accompany their pasta (I’m all about that last one!).
Classic Italian eats will include Prosciutto de Parma and creamy Burrata Cheese and Mussels. And sweets (Dolci) will round out the menu.
To drink at the wine bar? Well, of course, you’ll get to indulge in a few incredible labels.
Wines will include sparkling, red, and white wines. Imported beers will include La Rossa, Moretti, and Menabrea (read our Italy Beer Pairing review to learn about a few of these)!
Grappa, espresso, and cappuccino are other house specialties!
So, who’s with me?! Ready to get a peek at the new Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar?!
