Based on this image, we now have a better idea of what to expect from the newest restaurant in Walt Disney World, scheduled to open this Fall just in time for the 2010 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival!

It looks like Italy will have a whole new “neighborhood” back behind the current Tutto Italia, and that the pizzeria building will sit perpendicular to its outdoor dining area. The restaurant will seat 300.

Thanks to GDPinvestigator for the heads up.


  1. James (Disneynorth) says:

    AJ, do we have an exact date of the opening? I’m wondering if I can book it for my upcoming trip at that time. I guess I’ll know on Friday….

  2. AJ says:

    I haven’t been able to book it yet, James, and no exact date of opening to my knowledge. Let’s keep each other updated if we hear anything…

  3. Heather says:

    I was going to ask the same question. ;) I figure it won’t be open by my early Sept trip, though.

  4. AJ says:

    Heather — Well, Kouzzina “officially” opened last year on Sept. 17th, but it was in “soft opening” for several weeks before that, so keep your fingers crossed!

  5. Ryan says:

    So, when do we eat?

  6. Pizza in Italy, what a concept.

  7. AJ says:

    Ryan — As soon as they let us! :-)

    TDD — No kidding ;-)

  8. Jeff W. says:

    Both are beautiful. Even more incentive to consider planning another WDW trip. (Not that all that much incentive is required in the first place, mind you.)

  9. AJ says:

    Agreed, Jeff. I’m really interested to see what the reviews are for the Pizza place.
