These Neapolitan pizza joints have become rather popular in a lot of major cities. There were at least two or three in D.C. on my visit in the winter. The pizzas are fresher and lighter than a typical American pizza, usually served with a good selection of micro-brewed beers. On that note, any word on the booze selection, Robert?
Also three beers, plus La Rossa ("now debuting only at Via Napoli!"), an "amber-colored double malt Italian lager."
I found the Quattro Formaggi just too much cheese for my taste. And I found it nearly impossible to engineer getting a bit of both the prosciutto and the melon into each bite when eating the Prosciutto e Melone. Too fussy.
But my favorite item was the fritto misto, as you might already have guessed. :-)
I have always thought that Italy needed to show off their pizza and how its different from American Pizza.
I think it will do fine because many that come from WDW are from the East Coast and will be a bit familiar with this style of pizza. I know what to expect anyway!
BUT, there is so much good Italian in so many places, why should I go to WDW and eat (really expensive) Italian? EPCOT can be such a food adventure, I say stretch you food palette and eat something you haven't had.
Try Morocco. Go take a shuttle boat to The Boardwalk and go to Cat Cora's Kouzinna. Visit a fairly authentic-looking pub in Rose and Crown.
Next time you are in town try to include a trip to Gino's. You won't be disappointed (and I don't work for Gino's!) and that is just one of the many fine pizza eateries in O-Town!
Of course, I cannot wait to try Via Napoli. I will write a review by the end of August!
I guess if you live in a place like LA, NY, or Chicago, you have very diverse eating opportunities. I don't. I love Italian as much (or more) than the next guy, but sometimes I like to try something different. EPCOT offers that - an international festival every day of the year!
