Trattoria al Forno, The Newest Restaurant Coming to Disney Boardwalk
It’s official, Trattoria al Forno will be the newest restaurant coming to the Disney Boardwalk. According to Pam Brandon, Disney Parks Food Write, Trattoria al Forno will replace Kouzinna by Cat Cora and is planned to have a December opening.
What is Trattoria al Forno? A “trattoria” is an Italian restaurant serving simple food, and “al forno” is Italian for “food baked in an oven”. This new Disney dining hot spot will showcase Old World techniques, including handcrafted mozzarella made daily, cavatelli (small dumpling-shaped pasta) and a variety of Neopolitan-style pizzas baked in wood-burning ovens.
Brandon continues to share that Trattoria al Forno will showcase dishes from Italy’s various region such as braised beef Bolognese with house-made cavatelli from Bologna, semolina tagliatelli carbonara from Latium, pork chop alla Milanese named after the city of Milano. Guests can also expect to find classic Italian favorites: chicken breast alla Parmagiana with tagliatelle pasta; shrimp with garlic, capers and anchovy butter with polenta; whole roasted fish with roasted vegetables; baked lasagna; grilled steak; slow-cooked lamb shank with polenta; and eggplant rollatini.
A seasonal risotto will always be on the menu, and vegetarians will appreciate the ruffled campanelle pasta with green beans, roasted potatoes and Genovese pesto.
Wine lovers will be happy to know that wines served will be 100 percent Italian from historic wine regions including Tuscany, Veneto and Piedmont, with over 60 offerings by the bottle and more than 25 wines by the glass – Chiantis, Super Tuscans and fine Italian white wines such as Prosecco, Pinot Grigio and Moscato. Signature cocktails and Italian beers and sodas round out the drink menu, with a signature-blend Italian coffee roasted just for Trattoria al forno.
You can’t enjoy a classic italian dinner without dessert. Guest will be able to add classic Italian desserts like tiramisù, lemon panna cotta with almond crunch and berries, gelatos, and the signature bomboloni (Italian donut holes) with dark chocolate and vanilla gelato.
