Yum - this was our first visit to this restaurant and we loved it! My 11 year old daughter and I shared a large pizza and an appetizer (fried risotto with something yummy inside). We also asked for bread, which was free upon request. We really enjoyed the pizza and were stuffed after we ate the whole thing!!

We liked it a lot. I will say that it is extremely expensive. We are from ny where things are expensive normally, and literally never balk at prices af wdw. We were both shocked at the VN prices! The caesar salad was $22 I believe! I mean yeah it had grilled shrimp but it just fed both of us! 2 people for $22 is a lot for salad. We got two individual pizzas as well. Loved it!

Are we still trying to figure out the "big project?"
The answers are probably right in front of us

I'd say it's a must-try. The pizza is very good. It's one of my favorite pizza's I've ever had. The service isn't always stellar, they can be slow with refills on drinks, but the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable.

If you don't like it, at least you tried. I'd order a single pizza to share between two people. They are quite large.

Definitely large! DH likes prosciutto though, so he got his own. We got a to-go box with the leftovers.

If you can't get a reservation, there is a standby line for outside seating. When I was there this past week I saw various parties being seated, from parties of 2 to parties of 7. There is an outside podium for this; reservations go to the inside check-in desk.

Via Napoli does not sell pizza by the slice, not in the restaurant nor at the window! I think is very good pizza, they also have a very good appetizer platter, the frito misto that's for 2 but really feeds 3 or 4 in my opinion. It has calamari, tempura type deep fried veggies, arancini. If I were just interested in pasta I would eat elsewhere!

We loved their pizza! It is definitely more of an "Italian-style pizza" as opposed to a "General American-style" pizza. The sauce is more of a chunky tomato sauce...you get more of a tomato taste as opposed to a little tomato with a lot of spice taste. We got one of their specialty pizzas it was sectioned off into 4 parts: Prosciutto, Sautéed Mushrooms, Artichokes, and Eggplant. It was absolutely delicious! And might I suggest the Arancini as an appetizer (fried risotto, cheese, and meat balls served with a tomato sauce)....amazing!

On December 30th they were advising if you just wanted slices of pizza and did not want wait for a table you can go to the take out window. This may just be opened during the holiday season.

Yes but from my understanding, the pizza is Disney pizza. Not via. Via has never sold it by the slice. Everyone i know who has bought the slice said its Disney pizza. Im curious to know if anyone on here actually bought pizza from the window before.

That's a good question, like i previously said the sign stated it was about 6 or 7 bucks a slice, which when an individual pizza is 17 makes sense, but it its disney pizza that really is unfortunate.

Yep. Very unfortunate. Lol. It got me thinking. If it was in fact via pizza, wouldn't we be hearing everyone rave about it by now? Lol. But who knows. Hopefully someone, who has bought pizza from the window, can chime in.
