Birthday dinner at Epcot with kids?

I just can't decide where to have my birthday dinner at Epcot! I have an ADR at Tutto Italia because it appeals to me (have never eaten there though), but after taking our 3 children (ages 7, 5, and 4) to an upscale Italian restaurant recently I'm having second thoughts. We had to wait quite awhile for our dinners and they were not too happy. We've eaten at Biergarten before and everyone enjoyed that so I'm considering there. Also considering Via Napoli to still go Italian but not so fancy. Thoughts? Any other options to consider? The kids and I are vegetarian, but I've never had trouble eating anywhere at WDW so that's not a huge factor.

I would think Biergarten is awesome for the kids just because they can run around and play on the dance floor. You might have to struggle to get them to sit and eat but they won't have to sit for the whole time.

It's a buffet, so you get your own food, and yes you share tables.

Via Napoli has amazing food and a gorgeous atmosphere. The atmosphere at tutto maybe fancier but I liked the atmosphere at via better. Its nice and bright.

Tutto has really good food as well. We loved our pasta.

I honestly wouldn't recommend biergarten to vegetarians. Just my opinion.

I think via is a great choice to be honest. As i said, the food is so good, the atmosphere is gorgeous, and the service is top notch.

I suggest Teppan Edo. There is a veggie entree on the menu (it's yummy--I'm vegetarian and had it last year) and it was entertaining for my son who was 8 at the time.
