Carnevale di Venezia: Tutto Italia Ristorante at Epcot®
Join us February 8th – February 16th for The Carnevale di Venezia (Carnival of Venice) at Tutto Italia Ristorante! (NOTE: This event is open to all guest of the Epcot theme park, not just TIW members.)
Venice’s Carnival began in the 11th century, and the wearing of masks and costumes was well established by the early 1400’s. The practice of wearing masks for disguise reached its peak in the 18th century when Venetians of different social classes used Carnevale as an excuse to mix and mingle incognito.
At the Tutto Italia celebration, Guests will have the opportunity to see a special mask display inside the restaurant, and the waiters will be wearing their own. Feel free to bring your own too, or select a mask to purchase on location!
A special lunch and dinner menu will be available during the celebration. Guests can choose one of two pre-selected appetizers, entrees and desserts. A special performance by “Viva Venezia” will occur each evening 5pm – 8:45pm inside the restaurant. The musical trio, known as the “strolling musicians,” will serenade Guests with traditional Venetian music.
Lunch $19 per person, plus tax and gratuity
Dinner $29 per person, plus tax and gratuity

Guest Speaker for this dinner will be Peter Clinton, President of Vinnovative Imports
Founded by ex-pat South African, Peter Clinton, the company is based in Charlotte, North Carolina. Peter had barely settled into his new life in the US when he began exploring career paths that would give him the opportunity to promote his native country. It was as a result of Peter’s fiercely proud nationalism and their shared appreciation of wine that he ventured into this business. Noticing the embarrassing selection of primarily export-only labels during a visit to the grocery store, and confirming this opinion by a random sampling of the available wines, Peter resolved to bring quality South African wines back into the US. Although wine has been made in South Africa’s Western Cape for over 350 years, re-introducing previously sanctioned wines here has been more akin to marketing a newly discovered region. The struggle continues.
Vinnovative Imports is the sole US importer and has exclusive distribution rights for each of the wineries represented in its portfolio.
These wineries have received national recognition through publications including: The Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator, International Wine Cellar, Wine & Spirits, Wine Enthusiast, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today.
Reception: 6:30pm, Dinner: 7:00pm
