Trattoria al Forno Opens Tomorrow; STK Comes to Disney Springs
Walt Disney World's newest restaurant, Trattoria al Forno, opens tomorrow at Disney's Boardwalk, between Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios. The Italian eatery will open for breakfast and dinner in the space formerly occupied by Kouzzina by Cat Cora. Disney's completely reworked the interior of the restaurant, which will feature an open kitchen serving Neapolitan-style pizzas, Italian pasta classics and grilled meats and seafood for dinner, in multiple dining rooms. Breakfast will feature eggs, waffles, and pancakes "along with some classic Italian tastes," according to Disney.

In other Disney World restaurant news, the resort has confirmed that the STK steakhouse chain will be joining the dining lineup in The Landing area of Disney Springs in 2015. STK Orlando will occupy 14,000 feet across two floors, making it one of the chain's largest locations. STK Orlando joins the previously announced Morimoto Asia and The Boathouse in opening next year in Disney Springs.
Update: Disney's posted a promo video showing off Trattoria al Forno:
Yet more pizza and pasta?
Unfortunately, Kouzzina never provided the experience people want at a Greek restaurant, especially for the inflated prices. It's too bad they didn't re-imagine that, rather than put in another Italian restaurant. (How many do we need, anyway?)
