Disney World Trattoria al Forno – Restaurant Review

Guest Writer: Matt

Just steps away from the International Gateway (back) entrance to EPCOT at Walt Disney World, Trattoria al Forno provides a wonderful dining experience at Disney’s Boardwalk Resort.  The restaurant is open for both breakfast and dinner. 

My family discovered this restaurant while enjoying a pool-day during a stay at the Boardwalk Resort.  For a family appetizer, we ordered a Charcuterie Board, a perfect start to share amongst the three of us.  We then dove-in to a menu full of hearty Italian cuisine ordering Parmigiana di Pollo and Lasagna al Forno.  All of our meals were traditional Italian dishes with fresh pasta and authentic sauces.  After a full day in the Florida sun, we enjoyed so much pasta that there wasn’t any room left for dessert.  

Food is plentiful, during recent visits, my wife and I have enjoyed ordering our own salads and sharing an entree.  The quality of food and amazing service has made our dining experiences at Trattoria al Forno one of our favorite restaurants.
