    This looks good but with Il Mulino AND Tutto Italia AND Via Napoli so close by, I was hoping for something different. But, Kouzzina was different and it didn’t last, so what do I know… :)

    It looks like a varied menu and everyone will probably find something they like there. I wonder if the pizzas and/or pastas will be available in gluten-free varieties. If so, my wife will probably be happy about the inclusion of a white pizza.

    I’m a little sad about a pork chop milanese because there’s a pork or veal milanese at Tutto Italia. I’d like to see a veal or chicken marsala.

    I don’t think the menu copywriting people, the photography people, and Chef Dee Foundoukis have fully gotten together yet. Because here’s a few random things I know… anything Dee Foundoukis equals awesome … what I’m reading on the menu “Chicken Parm for $22″ … sounds okay, but the Chicken Parm in the photo, looks just icky and cold. I’ll go based on seeing Dee Foundoukis’ name alone… my guess is, by the time it opens… the food won’t look anything like the four photos they released.

    I’m always excited when new things pop up in Disney, but I am bummed it’s another Italian place … too many close by – wish they had tried to do something a bit different … I feel like the Boardwalk isn’t what it used to be … although it is one of my favorite places to hang out when we visit, I wish they had been a little more adventurous :(

    As many have said prior upon it’s announcement and above…..

    YEAHHH…Italian….there’s nothing like that in Disney….

    Oh wait…I can walk 5 minutes, and hit Il Mulino at the Swan.
    Or I can walk 10 minutes, head on through the International gateway and hit up Tutto.
    Then again I can take 15 minutes enter Hollywood and stop at Mama Melrose.
    If they are booked, hop on the bus for approximately 20 minutes and try Portobello.
    Or heck, fly home and hit the 20 some Italian places within a 15 minute drive from any South Jersey location.

    So excuse the sarcasm and sorry for not being all gitty by ANOTHER Italian place in Disney.

    I had breakfast at The Flying Fish earlier this week. They have waffles with a tiramisu-like topping. Delicious! Most of their breakfast dishes are gluten free or can be modified to be gluten free.

    Very disappointing for our family…looks like we won’t be dining at this restaurant for dinner, but will likely try it for breakfast. We can get those dishes here at home at many Italian restaurants and it isn’t anything unique to us. (We live in Brooklyn, NY)

    But I am very curious about breakfast. I’ve never had a tiramisu waffle before, and that seems like it would be delicious! DH would love that too…tiramisu is his favorite dessert, followed by a warm sfogliatelle pastry!

    Just to echo the above thoughts – so incredibly disappointed to see yet another Italian joint open up. Will it be successful? Likely yes, as it represents an easily accessible, non-threatening menu. Is it in any way interesting? Not in the least.
