WDW Dining Review: Tutto Italia Three-Course Lunch (Epcot)

Last week when I was at Walt Disney World for a whirlwind 48 hours, one of the new dining experiences that I had was dining at Tutto Italia, located in the Italy Pavilion at Epcot. Touted as having the best Italian cuisine in WDW, what sold me on wanting to try them for lunch was the newly introduced Three-Course Lunch menu. For just $27 plus tax, diners can choose a lunch sized appetizer, entree, and dessert from a pre-determined menu. I decided to check out this new menu on a rainy Wednesday afternoon.
NOTE: When I was initially going to do this review, three of my friends were going to join me so we could try more of the menu items. Schedules changed and I had to eat alone. Still great food… just less of a review.
Before we get into what I chose to eat, here is a look at the menu selections.
A lot of great choices. However, in the end I ordered the Antipasto, Filetto di Sogliola, and Cannoli.
Before the appetizer arrived, I was treated to a bread and olive selection, complete with olive oil for dipping. I personally am not a fan of olives, but the breads and breadsticks were delicious.
First up was my Antipasto appetizer, which consisted of a few slices of meat, a small ball of mozzarella cheese, and two roasted peppers. A nice sampling of an antipasto. Part of me wanted more (I love those salted meats), but it’s what you get for a price fixed lunch.
Up next was the entree. The sole was delicious, and I might have to go back next time I am down to get a full sized entree of it. I personally could have done without the grapefruit part of the salad, but it did provide a bit of acid that was needed with the fish.
And the cannoli for dessert? Beyond delicious. Though I have never necessarily found a cannoli I didn’t like, this one was exceptionally creamy and delicious.
By the end of the meal, I felt satisfied for lunch. I wasn’t full full, but that ‘s not what lunch portions are meant to be.
Beyond the delicious food, the ambiance of Tutto Italia is relaxing and beautiful. The staff, most directly from Italy, were very nice and accommodating, especially given that I was a Party of 1 showing up for a reservation for four.
Overall, if you are looking for a delicious light lunch while at Epcot, try Tutto Italia’s Three-Course Lunch. I have a feeling you won’t be disappointed.
