Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar Orlando Summary and Review
As mentioned earlier, Tutto Gusto is my go-to-spot in Epcot.
And because I love you all so much, I wanted to give you one of my little secret things to do inside of Epcot.
My friends and I have debated on whether or not to talk about this place to the public, since our once hidden spot, La Cava del Tequila in Mexico, is not so hidden anymore.
I’ve changed my mind about keeping this secret because I want you to enjoy Epcot just as much as I do.
If you’re taking a solo trip, then Tutto Gusto is a must do place!
Not only is it intimate and quiet, it’s a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the Epcot park. For solo traveling, this is definitely the spot you want to visit and have a nice glass of Pinot Noir.

Italy is slowly becoming my favorite Pavilion in the World Showcase.
Let’s start off by talking about the extensive wine selection (over 200+) at the Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar.
I felt intimidated by the huge collection, but was quickly guided by my waitress to a nice red wine, Feudo Arancio Cantodoro Red Blend- Sicilia.
It was a perfect blend of Nero d’Avola and Cabernet Sauvignon that did not break the bank and was a perfect pairing with the risotto.
Feudo Arancio Cantodoro was also a bold fruit-driven red wine with lots of delightful black cherry notes.
I also tried the prosciutto, salami and cheese selection which were top-notch and a pleasant delicacy to have.
I finished my adventure with a deliciously, sweet cream-filled cannoli, which sent me right to heaven.
Inside this Italian lounge are charming couches and intimate tables and chairs all surrounding a fireplace.
This is meant to transport you deep inside one of Italy’s most famous wine-tasting cellars.
And it definitely takes you there!
One of the only downsides for Tutto Gusto is the price. As you go through the menu below, you’ll see that this place is quite pricey.
Although I love my solo trips, I’d love having someone (maybe you) join me on another visit so that we can split the cost.
