Now for Amy's final two updates of their trip, with the first being from their dinner at...


Tutto Italia





Bistecca Del Macellaio - grilled Butcher's steak, rosemary potatoes, cipolline onions agro dolce

"DH said this is the best steak he has ever had in his life. Remember he is a plain eater and this was anything but plain."







Fettuccine Vecchia Roma with pancetta, parmesan cream

"I had the fettuccine, which was very good and even with the cream sauce it wasn't really heavy."







Lasagna alla Bolognese - traditional preparation with Emilia-Romagna beef sauce, bechamel and parmesan


"DS got the lasagna and DD got the spaghetti. We all loved our food and the service was superb!"

And Amy's last update is a snack update.



Amy said, "We used snack credits for the following:"

Funnel Cake
Cupcake - never got eaten (got it to go and left it on the monorail)
Make your own Rice Krispie - dipped in white chocolate rolled in butterfinger and drizzled with milk chocolate
Fudge
Chocolate shakes
Root Beer Float
Fruit cup
Frozen Slushie
Caramel Popcorn
Chocolate Caramel Cookie
Giant Caramel pecan cluster
Cotton Candy
bags of Gummy worms
bag of rock candy suckers


And last of all...





Carrot cake cookie


"I just didn't like it. Sorry, I know a lot of people do."





"And sorry I only have one snack photo but I also had to share a picture of Carly with her favorite Princess."







"This is the last of my updates. Next time I will try to do better with all the pics!"

We've received an update from Incredibleboysmom.


Yesterday her family had lunch at Epcot's...







First some menu pics...




















Baguette with butter






French Onion Soup






Lobster Bisque







Crepe Florentine - large crepe filled with chicken, spinach, mushrooms and bechamel sauce






"An unattractive view of the inside."


"So I know this sounds profound, but this was a very heavy meal. The crepe reminded me of a flat chicken pot pie.
It was very tasty and very, very filling."








Quiche Lorraine - ham and cheese quiche


"DH loved the quiche but I thought it had too much nutmeg. The salad was nice but would have been nicer with more "stuff" in it, veggies, croutons, anything."






Gratin de macaroni


"The kids loved the macaroni. The little guys shared an adult order, as it is not on the kid's menu."




And for their desserts...




Biscuit au chocolat

"We had 3 of these."






Profiteroles au chocolat - Puff choux with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce






Vanilla Creme Brulee


"The desserts were forgettable. The cookies were probably the best.
We went back to the bakery later in the day to get more!"




"All in all this was an average meal. DH commented that the wait staff didn't look happy, we never saw a smile.
Remy only did a quick drive by our table, I'm glad that I didn't tell the boys about it ahead of time."

That's because they're French. Sorry you weren't too happy with your experience at Chef's. The wait staff there aren't the friendliest for sure, but I think it adds to the experience of it all. The French aren't exactly known for their customer service. I'm sure it reflects in their tips.
