I often don't write reviews for the Disney restaurants because the way we tend to eat on vacation probably wouldn't be useful to many. We don't use the Disney Dining Plan, and rarely do we order the typical entrée-and-dessert type meal. We're much more likely to enjoy a couple drinks and appetizers to share. Because of this, Tutto Gusto is PERFECT for us.
The bar can be crowded. When we visited during the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, it was often standing room only, with long waits for a table. We didn't mind bellying up to the bar for some drinks and small plates, and we're glad we did.
There was an awkward moment when the bartenders repeatedly questioned our decision to order the Bruschetta Martini, which uses tomato vodka and a fresh basil garnish. I can't for the life of me understand why they regard the drink as being so strange, because the flavors work incredibly well together. It might have been one of the smoothest flavored "martinis" I've tasted in Disney World. Also excellent was the Rossini, a blend of puréed strawberries and prosecco. The dry sparkling wine cut through the sweet strawberry purée in a wonderful marriage of fruity effervescence.
For food, we ordered some panini. One was Prosciutto di Parma, and the other Gorgonzola. At $9 for one or $13 for two, the prices are a little steep. The panini are only a few bites each, but they do come with a small Caesar salad that was also quite tasty.
We'll definitely return to Tutto Gusto for drinks and a light meal. The prices are steep even for a resort location, but everything they serve is high in quality.
My husband & I tried out the brand new Tutto Gusto wine cellar this past Saturday (5/5/2012). This was the perfect place to duck out of the heat & grab a bite to eat. We had a nice crisp glass of white wine and picked out a few small plates. We tried the selection of 3 with the Finocchiona (salami with fennel), Cacciatorini (sausge with garlid & dry red wine), & Robiola (a soft creamy cheese) that was served with Focaccia Rustica. We also got an order of olives and an order of the Insalata Di Mare Trapanese. Everything we had was great! The Cacciatorini sausage was "porky, fatty goodness". The Foccaccia Rustica was more cracker like than I thought it would be, but it made a good accompaniment to the sausages & cheeses. My only complaint about this place was that the service seemed a little disorganized. However, to be fair, they had been open less than a week when we went there. We are looking forward to going back & trying more of their offerings. This make a really nice addition to the world showcase. I hope that WDW continues to add places like this.
One other note - they take the Tables in Wonderland card here.
