A new Italian restaurant, Trattoria al Forno, will open in December on Disney's BoardWalk, replacing Kouzzina by Cat Cora
. Kouzzina will close on September 30. The new restaurant will serve simple Italian dishes and feature many foods baked in a wood-burning oven, including a selection of Neopolitan-style pizzas. Handcrafted mozzarella will be created in house daily, as well as cavatelli pasta. Antipasto platters will feature Italian meats, olives and caponata.
The Disney Parks Blog
shares some menu items:
"Braised beef Bolognese with house-made cavatelli from Bologna, semolina tagliatelli carbonara from Latium (more specifically Rome), pork chop alla Milanese named after the city of Milano; 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. Look for tiramisu, lemon panna cotta with almond crunch and berries, gelatos, and the signature bomboloni (Italian donut holes) with dark chocolate and vanilla gelato.
Wines 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."
