Via Napoli

During his July anniversary trip to Disney World, my nephew and his wife had lunch at Epcot’s Via Napoli…


Being on the Deluxe Dining Plan, they each started with an appetizer. My nephew chose the…


Arancini – Fried Risotto Balls with Mozzarella and Meat Ragu

And a close-up shot…


His Comment: I thought the arancini was a symphony of texture!! (crispy, cheesy, and saucy)

For her appetizer, his wife had the…


Mozzrella Caprese – Vine-ripened Tomato and Fresh Milk Mozzarella

Her Comment: I enjoyed the caprese salad, the mozzarella was smooth and creamy.

Then they each chose a pizza for their entree…


My nephew went with the Carciofi…


White Pizza with Artichoke, Fontina, Mozzarella, and Truffle Oil

His Comment: I enjoyed the Carciofi, but the individual pizza is too big for one person. This could have easily been shared.

For her pizza, his DW chose the Capricciosa…


Capricciosa Pizza with Tomato Sauce, Eggplant, Artichokes, Ham, Mushrooms, and Mozzarella

Her Comment: I thought my pizza was very good but I enjoyed the white sauce on the Carciofi more.

Then for their desserts, my nephew went with the…


Gelato Frizzante – Ice Cream Soda “Italian Style” made with San Pellegrino’s “Aranciata” and Vanilla Gelato

His Comment: I was very full by dessert time so I thought the cream soda was very refreshing.

And for her dessert, his wife chose the…


Zeppole di Caterina – Ricotta Cheese Fritters served with whipped cream and chocolate sauce

Her Comments: I thought this dessert was nothing to write home about. The fritters could have used more seasoning.
