Tutto Italia at Epcot to Offer Summer Prix Fixe Lunch

Tutto Italia, the fine dining Italian restaurant at Epcot, is launching a special prix fixe three-course lunch from May 3 through August 31.

The restaurant is set within the Italian Pavilion at the back of Epcot’s World Showcase, and on a sunny weekday afternoon I joined several other bloggers and media to learn about this new lunch, as well as sample a few dishes.

For $27 guests can enjoy a meal consisting of an appetizer an entree and a dessert. The meal also includes a choice of soft drink or iced tea.

Tutto Italia - appetizers - Caprese - antipasto - minestrone - insalata

There are four appetizers to choose from:

  • Antipasto (sopressata, finocchiona, roasted peppers, ovolini mozzarella)Antipasto (sopressata, finocchiona, roasted peppers, ovolini mozzarella)
  • Insalata Mista (endive, arugula, radicchio, white asparagus, radish, balsamic vinaigrette)
  • Caprese (fior di latte mozzarella, tomato, basil, extra virgin olive oil)
  • Minestrone (spring vegetables, pancetta, pastina)

For my appetizer I chose the Caprese salad comprised of three thick slices of tomato interspersed with slices of fresh mozzarella and a drizzle of olive oil on top. It was a simple salad full of fresh flavor, and it set the tone for what was to be a delightful Italian meal. For the tasting, it was paired with a Montegrande Pinot Bianco wine.

Tutto Italia - appetizers - spaghetti, Filetto di Sogliola, Scaloppine di Pollo, Caesar Salad

There are also four entrees to choose from:

  • Scaloppine di Pollo (chicken scaloppini, cremini mushrooms, marsala sauce)
  • Filetto di Sogliola (parmesan encrusted filet of sole, spring mix salad, citrus vinaigrette)
  • Caesar Salad (romaine wedge, chicken, olive crostini, shaved parmesan)
  • Spaghetti (beef and veal meatballs, pomodoro sauce)

For my entree I went with the spaghetti and meatballs. Let’s be honest it’s really hard to mess up a spaghetti and meatballs dish and Tutto Italia did not disappoint with their version. It had the right ratio of sauce to pasta, and a liberal sprinkle of grated Parmesan on top brought it all together. For the tasting, it was paired with a Bosco del Merlo Vineargenti red wine.

Tutto Italia - desserts

For dessert, guests can choose from three Italian classics:

  • Cannolo
  • Tiramisu
  • Gelati (chocolate, vanilla, stracciatella)

I actually got to try a little sample of each, as we were moved to the adjoining Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar. The sweets were paired with a delicious Fior d’Arancio Moscato. I’ve always been a fan of Moscato wines, and this was a nice way to cap the event.

I think $27 for a quality lunch like this at an Epcot restaurant is a very good price, and a great way to try out this restaurant. I will definitely be back to try a few other combinations on the prix fixe menu.

Reservations can be made online at disneyworld.com or by phone at 407-WDW-DINE (407-939-3463). It should be noted park admission into Epcot is required to dine at this restaurant.
