New Italian Restaurant opens at Disney


Great news for those who love Italian food but don't want to pay park admission to get into Epcot to go to the Italian Pavilion. Trattoria al Forno, is a new casual Italian restaurant at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort and it is now open for business!

 Here is the official word as given to me from Disney:

 From tempting regional specialties to crowd-pleasing classics, this new Walt Disney World® Resort restaurant offers diners an authentic taste of Italy.  
Showcasing traditional techniques, Trattoria al Forno celebrates the diversity of Italian cuisine with authentic ingredients and recipes hailing from all over “The Boot,” from Milan to Rome.  Menu items include house-made daily mozzarella atop Neapolitan-style pizzas, hand-rolled pastas, velvety risottos and seasonal seafood.

For a sweet end to the meal, you can enjoy signature-blend Italian coffee accompanied by Italian dessert classics, such as tiramis├╣, lemon panna cotta, gelato and more. 
The restaurant’s extensive wine list, which is 100 percent Italian, takes you on a journey through Italy’s 20 wine regions.

And, for breakfast, Trattoria al Forno offers up American favorites with classic Italian tastes, including scrambled eggs with tomato, basil and fresh mozzarella, or cured Italian meats with tomatoes, hard-boiled egg, and cheese with fonduta (a warm cheesy sauce for dipping bread).
Trattoria al Forno is open 7:30 a.m.- 11 a.m. for breakfast, 5-10 p.m. for dinner and accepts the Disney Dining Plan.

I'm thinking this might be a great place to stop during marathon weekend next month!


  1. I like the sound of this place. I always love the restaurants at the hotels. There are so many fantastic places overlooked to eat. I even like the sound of breakfast here. I'll have to remember this for our next trip.

  2. Ummmm.... hello. Can we say carb-loading??? That's fantastic news. They really did need a good Italian spot outside of the parks. Can't wait to try it out.

  3. That's awesome! I am a big fan of Il Miluno in the Boardwalk Area but this is nice that it's right on the Boardwalk. Happy that it's not in Downtown Disney (too crowded for me!)
