Ok, so here's a teaser for Via Napoli...these are the Arancini, their signature appetizer which is basically fried mozzarella and risotto with a ragu center, delicious, the best fried cheese I've ever had!



We also had the Prosciutto de Melone pizza which I was hesitant about ordering by our server highly recommended it so I went for it and what a delight!! This is the pizza with fresh mozzarella, arugula, cantaloupe slices and huge slices of prosciutto on their amazing pizza crust! To die for!!

So upsetting I could only eat half (so note: if you're not a big eater or want to try different things it's easily shared by 2) especially after having the app and some of my dd's veal parm and that was excellent as well. So when asked about this place or Le Chefs I will so vote for Via Napoli, a new winner on our list!!

I will be writing a FULL review with photos on my website within the next day so be sure to check it out @ http://www.disneydiningreviews.com

And lots more NEW reviews are coming this week.

Our family of 4 like Chef's. We have tried VN 3 times are were underwelmed. Even the kids (10, 13) have asked not to go back. Most likely will not return.

LOL, I guess it's all based on experience. It's kinda funny because I have read NOTHING but great reviews about Via Napoli over the past few months which is why we decided to try it and it was a great experience for us, not one bad review, until I post my "positive" experience and 2 neg reviews after, just funny...

I agree 100%, it really is an exceptional blending of flavors. I've had that pizza on 4 different occassions and every time I have it, it seems to taste even better!!

It was something I would never have thought I'd ever try LOL! (kinda like the grits at The Wave and the mussels at FF, never would I have tried any of that outside WDW, for some reason I feel a little more adventurous when in WDW LOL!!)

I'm still so bummed I had to throw away 1/2 the pizza because it just wouldn't keep for the amount of time it would have not been refrigerated. I can soooo go for a piece of it now!!

We ate at both for lunch a couple of months ago.

Liked both of them, but if I had to pick only one, I'd pick Via.

Both restaurants are good but we've had better service and food overall at Les Chefs.

Our last visit to Napoli was odd. Reasonable food and service but its what happened after. Our check came and we left a 15% tip and proceeded to leave. Outside almost to the lake the waiter ran all the way out after us saying we had not paid the bill in full. What he did was to figure 20% for tip and that meant we were short on paying for an alcoholic drink (we had DDP to cover dinner itself). We told him the tip amount was up to us and 15% was proper. Our party was only 4 so no mandatory tip. He then left. Just found that very odd but I'm sure a one time thing so we'll be back.

Otherwise dinner was pretty good although I greatly preferred Les Chefs for atmosphere, food and service.

We loved Via Napoli. Always have a wonderful experience. Food is fabulous and so is service! We are trying Chefs de France for to first time in June. Hope we love it.

We ate at Chefs de France Tues Jan 29th and we were very disappointed. Seeing Remy was awesome for the kids but the food we were not that impressed with and our waiter was awful. Not friendly at all. We also told him that we wanted to pay our gratuitiy with cash but he still charged it automatically to our room. He said he would fix it, so we still paid with cash, but when we went to check out, he hadn't fixed it so ended up with double the amount of a tip. Brutal. If we weren't with a party of 8 and needing to pay the automatic gratuity he would have got a very small tip since his service was terrible. I would eat somewhere else.

Via Napoli, hands down. I tried Chefs De France once and that was more than enough for me. I have yet to have a bad experience at Via Napoli.

These are two of our favorite places to eat at Epcot. Although these days, I lean more to Via Napoli because we haven't been there as often. We are happy with sharing a family salad and pizza and the cost is far less -- if that is any consideration.
