    Funny story today...

    We finally came back home today after being at my mom's since Tuesday. We decide to go out to eat, and at the checkout stand I almost give him my Disney KTTW card.

    How funny would that have been!

    "Just charge it to my room!"

    How sad it is to have to pay for meals again.

    Daniel's Sunshine Seasons Review:

    Breakfast at Sunshine Seasons was okay. It wasn’t spectacular food, but it got the job done. The service was good, and we were treated to a complimentary cookie. That’s about all there is to it. Nothing great. Nothing bad. I’d eat there again if nearby, but wouldn’t make it a priority.

    For a grand total of 13.

    Monica's Note: Daniel's reviews are lacking wit and humor because he's becoming more obsessed with NCAA and NFL football. Men!

    Daniel's Tutto Italia Review:

    [​IMG]

    I would make dining at Tutto Italia a high priority. Tutto served up authentic Italian cuisine served by charming, authentic Italians. I dined on Tagliolini con Granchio, Pomodorini Alle Erbe – or tagliolini pasta topped with crabmeat, sweet tomato and garlic. It was incredible. The pasta was lightly tossed with sauce, and was very delicate. The tomato and garlic added a wonderful sweetness to the dish, and the lump crab meat simply put things over the top. The service was wonderful at Tutto, and our food was delivered promptly and served nice and hot.

    [​IMG]
    To end my meal, I had a delightful cinnamon ricotta cheesecake. The meal was as close to perfection as I’ve ever had in a restaurant. At least so far…

    Monica's Tutto Italia Review:

    I love Italian food. And by Italian food, I mean Olive Garden. This is all I know. I know it is generic, but it is cheap and yummy. Tutto Italia is expensive and supposedly yummy, so I book the ADR.

    We arrive for our ADR about 15 minutes early, but we are immediately seated. Our server is Antonella and she is from Sicily. She has a lovely accent, but honestly she talks fast and I cannot tell what she says. We chat a bit, and we tell her we're from Texas, and she says she wants to go to school in either Houston, Austin, or San Antonio. Having lived in 2 of the 3, I gave her some tidbits about each city. She goes and gets us our diet cokes (she adds a lemon wedge to it- I love it!), and a gentlemen named Andrea brings us some bread, mediterranean veggies, and some olive oil. Oh, and some herb butter....I loved the butter. I could eat it by itself if I had to.

    Thank God. I was hungry. Remember I had half a cookie and half a croissant for breakfast, and Italy is really far from Soarin. You walk through like 5 countries to get to Italy.

    The bread is delicious. It's an assortment of breads. I don't think I got a picture of the bread basket, but it's bread. You've seen it before.

    I ordered the Lasagna al Forno with meat ragu, bechamel and parmesan.

    I expected a not-so-impressive lasagna type of entree, but this lasagna was truly better and different than any I have EVER had.

    [​IMG]

    For starters, the portion is massive. There was no way I could finish this after having all that bread. Second, it is creamy. Not cheesy, but creamy. I can't quite explain it. It's wonderful! It's so wonderfully cheesy and creamy that it should be served with a side of Exlax because you'll need it if you get my drift.

    My only complaint is the meat ragu. I didn't like it. To me it had a weird onion like after taste, so I kind of pushed the meat off to the side. Here's how much I had left, or how much I ate depending on how you view the world.

    [​IMG]

    Andrea stops by to get our plates out of the way and I notice he is from Milan, Italy. So I ask him about fashion shows and he giggles. He's darn cute. I wish I could have brought him home with me...I mean us. Yeah, us.

    Love you Daniel.

    Then came dessert.

    HEAVEN!

    [​IMG]

    I ordered the Copetta Sotto Bosco - berries, zabaglione cream gelato and chocolate sauce $14.00

    Best thing I have ever tasted in the dessert world. The berries were fresh and sweet yet tart. The gelato was cold and creamy- full of flavor. Topped with whipped cream and chocolate...I want to have this daily. For breakfast. It was also served with some little cookies...so tasty! I cannot rave enough about this dessert. You get a lot of dessert compared to the other dessert options. You get some berries, some gelato, some chocolate, and some cookies. :goodvibes

    Overall, Tutto Italia was an awesome experience. Our food came out quickly and piping hot, the service was outstanding, and we cannot say enough nice things about it. I have read that many people feel rushed at Tutto Italia, and I can see where one would feel that way. We didn't feel that way at all because the servers were welcoming and attentive.

    My score:

    Taste- 8
    Originality- 8
    Service- 10

    26/30

    Cost:
    2 TS credits
    Cash Cost: $78.33

    We would definitely only eat here on the DDP though. Otherwise, I do think it is a smidge expensive. My dessert was almost as much as my entree! Also, since the bread basket is included, it's sort of like getting a free appetizer. :wizard:
