My (food) Bucket List: Tutto Gusto

20130318-200256.jpgTutto Gusto is the new wine bar in Epcot’s Italy Pavilion and ever since I first saw the menu it’s been at the top of my bucket list. They specialize in small plates to share.

At the top of the menu are the “Gusto Plates to Share”. Each plate is based around the cuisine of an Italian region. La Siciliana (from Sicily) features Fior di Latte Mozzarella (pasta filata, hand-crafted, made from cow’s milk), Cacciatorini (black pepper, wine marinated, beef and pork cured sausages), and Caponata (Sicilian egglplant agrodolce salad). For cheese lovers there is L’Alpina (from the Alps), featuring Fontina Valdostana (semi-firm, alpine cow’s milk cheese), La Tur (creamy blend of cow, sheep, and goat’s milks), and Gorgonzola Cremificato (profoundly sweet, blue-veined cheese).

The Cavatappi (spiral pasta) options include Pomodoro (tomato sauce, tossed with burrata mozzarella), Gamberetti (shrimp, calabrian chili, garlic, pomodorini), and Rughetta e Patate
(arugula, potato, pancetta, tomatoes, pecorino).

There are two Gusto Specialties on the menu: Pici (hand-rolled pasta, tossed with lamb ragu) and
Cannelloni (baked veal & ricotta filled pasta, bechamel, sausage ragu).

Paninis, small bread sandwiches, are served with a Caesar salad wedge. Tutto Gusto serves Prosciutto di Parma, Fior de Latte Mozzarella & Pomodoro, Carciofi and Fontina, Gorgonzola Cremificato, and Fontina and Salametto paninis.

And for a sweet ending try one of the dolce offerings. Cannoli, Chocolate Covered Cherries, Strawberries with Mascarpone Cream, Mocha Tiramisu, Nutella Chocolate Cake, and Pistachio Panna Cotta are tasty dessert options.

Tutto Gusto would be a great option if you are looking for a light dinner or a more relaxed lunch. I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t mind stopping in for a glass of wine and a dessert. If you want to learn about wine, they offer wine seminars Mondays and Thursdays from 3-4pm.

    Tutto Gusto is a very good place, in my opinion! It was fantastic atmosphere, it’s Disney so they nailed the atmosphere and food right on the head! I think you’ll really enjoy it when you get the chance to go! PS: the tiramisu is fantastic! :)
