    The hell?
    Patina is Californian, not Italian. Bring back Alfredo, or get another, actual Italian, restaurant.

    I guess the name is in reference to Naples 45?

    I can’t wait for this to open.

  3. daf says:

    Is it going to replace an existing restaurants?

  4. AJ says:

    Daf — Nope. This will be an entirely new restaurant.

  5. […] Via Napoli will open in September as Disney World’s newest Italian eatery, located in the back of Epcot’s World Showcase Italy Pavilion. This restaurant will feature Neapolitan dishes (Naples is located just south of Rome) along with Via Napoli’s spotlight item — wood-fired pizzas. The pizzas will be thin-crust, Neapolitan-style (which many of us know as New York-style), and will come to your table straight from one of the massive pizza ovens. […]

    I am excited about the new restaurant in Italy – more choices are always great! However, i see a need for an italian coffee and pastry shop similar to what we find in most major squares in Italy – on a hot day in Epcot, who wouldn’t love an authentic Cafe Freddo? It just cannot be duplicaed in the States and I would love to have this choice in the Italian section of the World Showcase.

    Shareen, good point! I think you can get Italian coffees in a kiosk outside, but a little cafe would be really nice!!
