Tutto Italia Ristorante – EPCOT

20140327-150351.jpgTutto Italia Ristorante is my favorite Italian Restaurant on Disney property.     The atmosphere and staff do a great job of creating the mood of being in Italy.

During this visit I chose the Ceasar Salad – (Romaine wedge, olive crostini, shaved parmesan) and Ravioli a delicious sauce.

 

 

From the Disney website:

“Relax in Old World ambience as you enjoy platters of chicken, fish, handmade pasta, lasagna and more.

On the outside patio or in the airy dining room amid murals of ancient Rome and sparkling chandeliers, relish the rich, textured flavors of authentic Italian dishes from a menu created by award-winning chef and California restaurateur Joachim Splichal.

Start with a tantalizing selection of appetizers and then continue with entrees that may include pan-roasted fish, grilled steak and seasoned potatoes, and classic spaghetti and meatballs.

Delight in such decadent dolci as gelato, chocolate cake and crispy cannoli to complete your delectable dining experience.

With attentive table service, plenty of vegetarian options, a wide-ranging wine list and a full children’s menu, Tutto Italia Ristorante will satisfy Guests of all tastes and interests. Reservations are recommended and can be made up to 180 days prior to your visit.”

Oh Canada!!!

Le Cellier Steakhouse in the Canada Pavilion is one of my favorite restaurants to order a steak dinner.  It’s a bit dark inside, but I like it.   the candle lit tables provide enough light to keep my eyes on the food and concentrate on a delicious meal.

For my latest meal I ordered 16-oz Bone-In Rib-Eye with Herb-Parmesan Potato Wedges and Maple-Pink Peppercorn Butter.

The restaurant take reservations 180 days in advance. I suggest that if you are planning a trip to Walt Disney World and want to have a meal at Le Cellier make your reservations as soon as you can.

The trio of chocolate dessert is also recommended.  It’s just the right amount of sweet goods to top off the meal.

Quick service at the Electric Umbrella.

How cool is the name “Electric Umbrella?”   This reminds me of an ’80′s hip-hop band.  Located in the Future World area of Epcot,  this air-conditioned, indoor venue is an ideal place to enjoy a quick break during your visit.

I am pleased to report again that the quick service portions are very adequate and delicious.   This particular is setup to handle large crowds with many ordering corrals and tables scattered throughout the large building.   Being a fan of cheese, I was glad to see my meatball sub covered with wonderful melted mozzarella. The fries (with plenty of ketchup) and grapes went well with the sub and we were once again on our way to continue our visit to Epcot.

Visiting Japanese Pavilion at Epcot

Being a huge fan of a local Japanese restuarant I wanted to try to quick service place at the Japan exhibit in Epcot.   The  Katsura Grill formerly known as the Yakitori House offers a good selection of quick meals to prevent guests from losing valuable time seeing the other areas of the park.  Indoor and outdoor dining areas are available.

upon viewing the menu I did not see my usual Hibachi chicken that I enjoy so much while at home.   I chose the Shogun Combo, which includes Teriyaki chicken and beef with sticky rice and vegetables.   It was a good meal and was just enough to last me until dinner.

I have never seen a large crowd at this location and recommend making a stop to take a break.

If you time it just right you can see the Japanese taiko drummers, Matsuriza perform.
