Trattoria al Forno Costumes - Lakeside Casual


In July, 2014, Disney announced that Trattoria al Forno (Italy) would replace Kouzzina (Greece) at Boardwalk.

Today Disney shares the costume designer renderings of the costumes for the cast members. These were designed by Walt Disney Imagineer Celina Lung. Lung has also designed costumes for Epcot's Coral Reef restaurant as well as various locations in Disney parks around the world.

The attire is "charming, casual, a little upscale", said Lung, and will match the restaurant color palette.


Burgundy shirts and blouses will be paried with khaki-colored pants. To provide a more refined finish the bladed leather belt will have an antique brass buckle. Serves will also wear bistro aprons.


A classic tweed jacket will complement the outfits in the colder months.


The restaurant is scheduled to open in December 2014. Kouzzina closes at the end of September. While Kouzzina is closed, breakfast will be offered at the Flying Fish Cafe.

Trattoria al Forno Replaces Kouzzina at Boardwalk

Disney has announced that Italy will replace Greece on the Boardwalk starting in December 2014.

Look for simple foods "trattoria" baked in an oven (al forno) at the new eatery serving dishes from Italy's various regions. Everything from Neopolitan pizzas, to pork chop alla Milanese, to house-made cavatelli, polenta and much more. For vegetarians - ruffled campanelle pasta with green beans, roasted potatoes and Genovese pesto. A seasonal risotto will always be on the menu. Paper-thin Italian meets, olives, caponata, pastas, fresh seafood and vegetables will all be part of the dining experience.

Of course, no restaurant would be complete without Italian desserts such as tiramisu, panna cotta, gelatos, and the signature bomboloni (Italian donut holes) with dark chocolate and vanilla gelato.

Wines will all be from around Italy including Tuscany, Veneto and Piedmont. Over 25 wines by the glass and over 60 different bottles. There will even be a signature-blend Italian coffee roasted just for the Trattoria.

Kouzzina closes September 30, 2014.

More details as they are released.
