Best pizza, VIA NAPOLI! OMG its wonderful!!!! The best pizza in disney for sure! Great portion too!

Best pasta, Tutto Italia. I love their lasagna and also the fetuccini w/ parmesan cream sauce & pancetta. SO GOOD!

The absolute WORST italian food i've ever had in my life, Tony's. Gross beyond words.

I have to jump in for the Tony's hate. It was honestly the worst meal we have ever had at Disney.

I would stick with Tutto Italia or Via Napoli.

As usual, I agree with JimmyV. This is my exact order also.

Il Mulino and Portobello are the only ones worth visiting, in my opinion. But if you must choose something within a park, go for one of the Epcot restaurants. Stay far away from Mama Melrose's and Tony's if you have any inclination toward good Italian food.

I have only eaten at 3 - Tutto, Portabello and Mama Melrose. We LOVED Tutto and Portabello but I would give the edge to Tutto for their excellent lasagna. MM didn't compare to the two meals we just had at the first two last week. Yum!

AHHHH I have never eaten at Tony's so I made ADR there our first night in May. I need a little Italian sometime during the week. If I change I would have to rearrange almost everyday
Surely there must be SOMETHING there that is tolerable !!

If you stay away from dishes that contain tomato/marinara sauce, like chicken parmesan, spaghetti and meatballs (gross meatballs btw), you should be fine. Ppl who have had steak, flatbread, or calamari have enjoyed their meals.

Thanks for advice Though if I can't trust the meatballs in an Italian restaurant I sure as hell ain't eating the calamari lol Looks like I'll be looking over my ADR's tomorrow and make a few "adjustments"
Thanks again
What I wouldn't give to see a Maple Leafs vs Blackhawks game right now !

VIA NAPOLI: Ditto

TUTTO ITALIA: Ditto

TONY'S: Ditto

I could not have summed it up any better!

Oh ya no kidding. Since there's no NHL, we've been going to AHL games (Toronto Marlies). I kinda like that better anyway. Great hockey at a fraction of the cost! Bonus!

Anywho, i'd definitely try to make a few adjustments if you can avoid Tony's. You can always try it out of course. But dont say I didnt warn you. Lol!
