Guide Review - Pienza Italian Market Restaurant Review - Gaylord National Resort

This review is based on the breakfast buffet. The restaurant offers a full breakfast with traditional items - fruit, yogurt, eggs, ham, sausage, bagels, muffins, made-to-order waffles and omelets. The food was fresh and good, though the selection was not as extensive as I would have expected. I would imagine that the menu later in the day would offer more interesting selections.

Located in the hotel atrium with a view of the Potomac River, the restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere with seating on an indoor patio. Beach umbrellas, shrubs and trees create an Italian cafe-like scene.

For lunch and dinner, six market-inspired stations include an artisanal bread and antipasto station, a fresh produce market station, a rotisserie and carvery station, a pasta and risotto station and a traditional dolceria/sweet shop.
