Via Napoli questions

We are 3 adults, 3 kids (14, 12, 8). Looking to have lunch, so not a huge meal. How much pizza do you think we will need? Considering getting a snack a little earlier as the ADR I can get is not til after 1. Is there a good appetizer or garlic bread of some sort to order to go with the larger pizza? We are just looking for a cheaper way to do a TS lunch as we are paying OOP.

Bumping for you. I'm also trying this restaurant for the first time. The pizzas are huge and look scrumptious.

We're two adults and we usually split an individual pizza and an order of the risotto balls. There are lots of yummy appetizers and salads that you could pair with a pizza for everyone to share.

The individual pizza is about 11" in diameter. I've found it to be enough for two light/moderate appetites. I've read that the large is about 20" in diameter. The mezzo metro is more rectangular and looks really big.

In terms of the appetizers, I really like the arancini, but that won't be enough for six people (unless you order several). The Frito Misto platter might be a good idea.

Allears.net has a menu (from Dec), but you can an idea of the offerings:

My 6ft 16 year old can eat an individual pizza with no problem. For a meal with an appetizer I would likely eat half of the pizza. The Risotto Balls are amazing.

Another vote for the risotto balls. They are amazing. We are a family of four my DS12 and DS 10 are big eaters. We usually get the risotto balls and the big four cheese pizza and it is more than enough.

We go with the salad, calamari and giant pizza for our group. We save desserts for snacks later.

It depends on appetites. If you all have good appetites then I would think that two large pizzas or one giant one would be plenty if you add one appetizer. Add more in the way of appetizers then you can probably whittle it down to one large pizza.

The mezzo metro is huge! Depends on appetites, I guess. I'd think one of those with a salad or appetizer would do it. There are also tons of yummy snacks in World Showcase!
