8 Things You’ll Love About Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar at Walt Disney World

The Italy Pavilion in Epcot is known for its authentic architecture and romantic atmosphere. Well, its Wine Cellar isn’t any different! Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar is a sort of extension of Tutto Italia, while remaining completely separate. Tutto Gusto is a great place to get a quick snack, a great drink, or just hang out in this super cool lounge. Here are some things I think you’ll love about it!

1. Set Small Plates

Tutto Gusto has what they call “Gusto Plates.” These are set priced small plates with a fixed menu. They are perfect for sharing with a couple friends! They have several options, like a cheese plate, meat plate, antipasto plate and more. These plates are a brilliant way to have a great meal without breaking the bank or filling up.

2. 200 Wines

A wine cellar has to have wines, right? Right! But this wine cellar has over 200 bottles of it! They’re not messing around here. The wine bottles definitely help the atmosphere of the place, but they have a clear purpose! Cast Members in Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar will be able to help you find the perfect glass of wine. And what a shame it’d be if you had to try a bunch to find out…

3. Meals from Tutto Italia

A really cool thing about dining at Tutto Gusto is that you can actually still dine at Tutto Italia. What?? Yes! At Tutto Gusto you can order food from Tutto Italia’s menu. It’s the best of both worlds, really. Some of these amazing Italian dishes include ravioli caprese (my personal favorite), spaghetti with mixed meat meatballs, and a lemon shrimp risotto. Yum!

4. Intimacy

I love the intimacy of Tutto Gusto. This restaurant is a bit hidden from the rest of the pavilion, and definitely from the rest of Epcot. For this reason it is generally quieter and more relaxed. The entire cellar is cozy and it’s not as hectic as its full-restaurant counterpart next door. You can’t really find anything quite like it anywhere else in Epcot.

5. Authenticity

I love the way Tutto Gusto looks. It genuinely looks and feels like a real Italian wine cellar. This cozy space could be found somewhere in Tuscany with wine from the vineyard next door! The cellar is dark, lighted by chandeliers from the wood beam ceiling. Most walls are made of worn bricks, while one is completely full of wine bottles!

6. Detail

Detail goes hand in hand with intimacy and authenticity, but there are so many little details that could go unnoticed in this space. But it is exactly those details that make it so special. I love the artwork and décor in Tutto Gusto. From vases, to ceramics, to iron wall sconces, to inlayed bookshelves, this place has it all. I especially love the cozy fireplace with its terra cotta mantle surrounded by comfy couches. And don’t forget the recycled wine bottle chandelier!

7. Full Bar

A super nice part of the Wine Cellar is that it doesn’t just sell wine. This little nook of a lounge has a full serviced bar. The Italian pavilion has plenty of beers to try as well! Not to mention some classic Italian cocktails. This makes Tutto Gusto accessible for everyone to enjoy, not just wine connoisseurs, while also being a haven for the experts!

8. No Reservations

No reservation dining is rare for Epcot. But Tutto Gusto has you covered! You can absolutely add your name to the list if it’s a busy night, but often you can just walk right in and be seated. This adds to the relaxed atmosphere of the lounge. It’s so nice to be able to go get a great meal or drink without time restrictions!
