Tutto Italia Ristorante in EPCOT‘s Italian Pavilion is somewhere we haven’t visited for a number of years. I remember it being decidedly average, and while there was nothing wrong with it, it was placed on the list of places I probably wouldn’t go to again. Therefore, I’m not sure how we ended up dining there again, but my opinion hasn’t changed.
Actually, it has changed a little bit; the service was probably the slowest I have ever witnessed at Walt Disney World. Almost an hour trying to pay for our meal was not good. They certainly seemed very short-staffed.
We sat on the outside terrace, and on a nice evening, it was a great place to watch the EPCOT crowds. The menu contains a selection of Italian Pastas and Favorites. The selection isn’t massive, but there is plenty for everyone.
Gluten-free pasta and bread were available, but I didn’t feel they were that well set up for food allergies and intolerances. There was a bit of a language barrier between ourselves and our server, which affected the experience.
The food was quite good but wasn’t spectacular. The portions were big and the Chicken Parmigiana was huge. However, I think Tutto Italia charging $29 for a lasagna is too much.
If you are desperate for an Italian or can’t get a reservation in any of the other brilliant EPCOT restaurants, I would probably give Tutto Italia Ristorante a go. However, there are better restaurants at EPCOT. For now, at least, Tutto Italia Ristorante is back on the list of places I probably wouldn’t book again.
