|Concept Art for Tutto Gusto in the Italy Pavilion|
As Tutto Italia, located in Epcot's Italy pavilion, undergoes a significant refurbishment, some details have been released about the new wine bar/tapas addition, Tutto Gusto. Tutto Gusto will be located in what was previously the lobby of Tutto Italia. With over 200 wine selections, several Italian beers and a robust small plate selection, Tutto Gusto appears to shy away from the Italian American classics and instead focus on more traditional menu items and wine.
Any time a restaurant with several unique food/drink items opens (particularly in World Showcase), I get excited. One of the biggest complaints about Disney food over the past ten-fifteen years is how homogenized it has become. Unique or ethnic dishes are few and far between, but Tutto Gusto, at least in the early going, seems to reverse the trend.
While it will place more of an emphasize on food than drinks (and will accept the Disney dining plan), I hope Tutto Gusto will be a lot like the hidden gem La Cava del Tequila in the Mexico pavilion.
