    Alfredo's Only Open For Lunch?

    Visiting the WDW web site, it states that Alfredo's is only open for Lunch. Is this correct?

    And if it is correct...does anyone know why?

    Thanks!

    It could just be a mistake. Maybe it has something to do with the restaurant closing?

    The Web site needs to be updated.
    The contract with L’Originale Alfredo di Roma Ristorante ended August 31. Patina Restaurant Group will become the new operator for the restaurant and will open a brand new restaurant concept in Fall 2008.
    Supposedly, the new restaurant will feature signature dishes, interactive experience, and a variety of wines, and will also participate in the Dining Plan.

    The new restaurant will be called Tutto Italia (hope I spelled that right).

    Tutto Italia should have opened on September 1, correct?

    What I understood would happen was that a temporary sit-down would open pretty quickly, and then a total rehab next year. I don't know that there is a temporary sit-down (Tutto Italia) open yet. If I remember, I'll look tomorrow - I haven't really thought about it!

    Okay, thanks. I was just basing that off of what I read on Mouseplanet. Their lastest WDW update says:

    "L'Originale Alfredo di Roma Ristorante will close on August 31 and reopen under new management on September 1 under the name 'Tutto Italia.' Tutto Italia will close in the spring of 2008, will be completely remodeled, and reopen in fall 2008 under yet another new name. "

    It hadn't occured to me to check, but I have seen photos of Italy with boards on it (you'd think I would have seen that, but there are so many barriers all over Epcot right now!) I talked with management the day I had lunch there (late August) and it sounded like there would be a few changes inside the restaurant. So it might not have opened right away?

    Thanks all. I just got of the phone with Disney Dining and they said the "Last supper" was held last Friday night, August 31st...and they are now closed. She said they are not currently taking any reservations for Italy at all right now and said they should know in a couple of weeks when they might start taking reservations again for whatever takes its place (whether temporary or permanent).

    I knew they were due to close but I thought I read somewhere that they would be closing on October 1 (exactly 25 years after opening). I was hoping to slip in one more dinner there. Oh well. I'll miss 'em.

    Again...thanks for the responses.

    yes, August 31st was it (I was there a week ahead). Pricey, but the food was good. I posted my meal online before. Portobello has the same dish for like half the price, though!
