      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Atmosphere
      Cons: service

      We have eaten here several times and have always had a good meal with excellent service. However, this time the service was horrible. Our server was awful and uncaring. Once he put our order in, he disappeared until he brought our food out. We even had to get the manager to refill our drinks. He frequented his other tables which each had 4 guests or less. It was if he knew he already had his gratuity automatically added, so he didn't care about his lack of service. He never even came back to collect our bill! We had to go up to the manager once again and hand our bill to him and tap our bracelets to activate the dining plan. I'm pretty sure we could have walked right out the door and no one would have cared. We even mentioned our poor service to the manager, and he didn't seem to care either. I would avoid this restaurant and spend your money elsewhere. There are too many fabulous restaurants through out Disney World to waste your time here.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): food
      Cons: service

      After having ADRs here in the past and canceling due to food overload, we finally made it on our April trip. I am very picky when it comes to restaurant spaghetti sauce and meatballs, but I was very pleased with the spaghetti and meatballs here. There was just enough sauce for me, it wasn't watery (my usual complaint about restaurant sauces), and the meatballs didn't taste overly-processed. The portions were very generous too. The only person who was able to finish their meal was my dad, but that's because he only ordered the minestrone soup. My only complaint was with our server - he forgot my mom's iced tea, and it took a long time to get his attention/catch his eye, although he stopped at all of his other tables (which were next to us, in front of us, and behind us) quite often.

      Cons: food and price

      We were so disappointed with this restaurant! The food was so bland and the portions not generous. Our server, Jennifer, was great and the bus guy kept our water glasses filled. The bread,breadsticks and olives brought out at the beginning were a nice touch but it didn't make up for the food.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): atmoshpere, great food

      Our group of 4 adults ate here on March 14th for dinner. We arrived 25 min. before our reservation time and were seated immediately. We asked for a recommendation for a bottle of red wine to compliment our dinner and were not disappointed. We were all pleased with our entrée selection and the couple with us were celebrating their anniversary, so what a nice surprise when some of the staff brought out complimentary dessert and sang happy anniversary to them. The atmosphere, warmth of the staff , and great dinner will have us coming back during our next visit.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros):
      Cons: Crowded, noisy, confusion

      I'm Italian so I have high expectations when it comes to authentic Italian food. I wanted to try this place for years so I finally made a reservation for dinner. I really wish I didn't. The server brought me the wrong food, the dining room was very crowded and the tables extremely close together. I could hear the conversations of the people around me and the servers didn't have room to walk around without bumping into things including my chair. Food was ok, nothing memorable. They also messed up my bill because I was supposed to pay for this meal using the dining plan and when I checked out on my last day, the hotel told me I owed money for eating there and that was on my bill. They corrected the mistake but it took a long time and I just wanted to go enjoy my final day in the park. I will not be going back to this restaurant.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Atmosphere, AMAZING desserts!!
      Cons: Food was a bit bland

      While the ambiance of this restaurant was spectacular, the meal was nothing memorable. My husband ordered the chicken alfredo dish, which he described as bland. I had the lasagna, which also could have used more flavor. Dessert was the star of the show, and everyone enjoyed the offerings, the tiramisu was creamy and not overwhelmingly sweet. We probably won't go back on our next trip, unless its for dessert!

      We are glad that we ate here (1'st time) but I do not think that it will be high on my list next time. The meal was OK but service and atmosphere was very good.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Ambiance, food, service, portions.
      Cons: price

      We (me and DH) ate here on December 7, 2013 as part of the candlelight processional. This was our first time eating at Tutto Italia, and we'd both been wanting to try it for a very long while.
      I know that the price was a lot more seeing as how we were on the processional package, and aside from that I have 0 complaints!

      When we first arrived, we were extremely early (nearly an hour) and we were not turned away. They seated us very quickly, and were happy to do so. Our server was pleasant and even though he had a thick Italian accent, you could clearly understand his every word. He was very attentive and that is something I adore.

      We were given a quick description on how the processional dinner package works and asked what we'd like to drink, and for our appetizer choice. I chose the Prosciutto Di Parma, which is thinly sliced/shaved Parma ham with little pieces of gnocco fritto, which is some kind of delicious bread. DH chose the Fior di Latte, which is two nice pieces of fresh mozzarella cheese with a drizzle of EVOO (extra virgin olive oil), and roasted peppers. It was garnished with a big leaf of basil, and it was supposed to have Maldon sea salt, but we never saw/tasted it.
      After we began eating our app's, they brought us a plate with fresh focaccia bread, crispy breadsticks, a bowl of EVOO, and some of the best green (with pits) olives I have ever eaten in my life! The olives were the main attraction here, for me at least, and when our server realized just how much I was enjoying them, he offered us more, which I gladly accepted. By this point we had placed our entree orders. I chose the Polenta Valsugana which was polenta with fontina cheese, 2 large meatballs and a piece of braised short rib (boneless) all in a delicious red sauce. It was very, very good and more food than when I could handle. DH chose the lasagna alla forno. It was a hefty portion of lasagna, and it was very delicious.

      All in all, we had a wonderful experience, and we will definitely be going back to Tutto Italia in the future.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Quiet respite from the park
      Cons: Disappointingly limited menu

      My wife and i had a late lunch (1:30) during our visit in mid-November. It was break from our normal routine of having lunch at the Inn at San Angel when visiting EPCOT.

      We had a table inside, and it was not very busy, and the quiet was a nice break from all of the busy-ness of the park.

      I was disappointed the menu was as limited as it seemed. I was hoping for some additional and more adventurous pastas or other Italian dishes. Spaghetti and meatballs and fettucini alfredo is pretty humdrum.

      We split the Antipasto appetizer and it was the best part of the meal. It was huge! Could have been a light lunch by itself. Loved all of the different foods on it.

      I had the lasagna, which was good (but not great - I think my wife's is better). My wife had the seafood risotto, which she enjoyed (including the mussels, which she normally avoids). I had a taste and thought it was quite good.

      Definitely was worth trying, but will probably make a point of visiting the Inn at San Angel, the restaurants in France, and the Japanese restaurants before coming back again.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Excellent service, pleasant atmosphere, delicious food
      Cons: Fatty steak

      We were lucky to get a last minute reservation @ Tutto Italy. Our server and his assistants were very attentive and I would consider the service to be excellent! Everyone in my party enjoyed their pasta dishes very much. The only complaint would be that the steak was extremely fatty, almost inedible. The veggies and potatoes that accompanied it were fantastic however. I told the server about the steak and he said the Ribeye cut of steak is always fatty.?.?.? In spite of that, the meal was wonderful and we would definitely return. Desserts were amazing!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Food, Atmosphere
      Cons: Childrens Choices

      We dined on the patio for dinner and loved the ambience of the restaurant. The bread and olive oil was delicious, as was the appetizers - we shared the prosciutto and the mozzarella dishes. The main meal was a bit bland, we all ordered spaghetti and meatballs. Dessert was delicious as we enjoyed the childrens chocolate "basket" and the lemon and raspberry sorbets. As with all Epcot restaurants, I wish that the children's choices included favorites such as a pbj.

      My family of 6 enjoyed dinner here on July 5th. We had a 5:30 reservation and were seated right away.
      The food was really good. We enjoyed the zucchini appetizer. For entrees, we had spaghetti and meatballs, lasagna, NY strip, and alfredo pasta.
      Our waiter was very friendly and chatty.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Service
      Cons: Price

      The food was comparable or slightly better than an Olive Garden but was priced about 40 - 50% higher. Dinner for 4 was $170 without alcohol beverages. Two appetizers, four entrees and two desserts. It was Ok to try for the first time but we would not repeat.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros):

      Had an unexpected dinner here one night. Didn't have ADR's but if we were ok with sitting outside (and we were) they were able to seat us right away. We sat outside in the nicely covered and shaded patio. It was a warm night but we had a nice breeze and it was very comfortable.
      The food way very good. We all enjoyed the breadsticks, olive oil and olives.
      I had the Filetto di Sogliola - Filet of sole, white asparagus, lemons, capers - it was perfection. Tons of flavore but a light dinner. LOVED it. DH had the Bistecca Del Macellaio - grilled Butcher's steak, rosemary potatoes, cipolline onions agro dolce - he enjoyed it. The flavors were nice but the steak was a little tough. DD had the Fettuccine Vecchia Roma - pancetta, parmesan cream - she didn't love it..it was sort of a gluey type sauce. DS9 had the kids pasta and enjoyed it.
      DD and DH had the cannoli and both thought it was one of the best they have ever eaten (and they have had a lot) - I had a hazlenut cake with marscapone cheese and dark chocolate...sounded better than it tasted. The cake was super dry.
      The service was excellent! Not sure we would make specific plans to go back here - but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Smile
