7:45 at Via Napoli

We have 7:45 ressies in July for Via Napoli. We're looking forward to the pizza and Sangria!

Can we stretch dinner at Via Napoli to last till after Illuminations or is the service pretty quick cuz it's pizza? We'd kinda like to leave EPCOT after the masses....

The service is super speedy at Via Napoli...but I doubt they would rush you out or anything. I'm sure you could also just show up a little later than your reservation time and still get seated. I've had dinner at Via Napoli twice in the 7:00 hour, it's never been packed-to-the-gills crowded, and they've been seating walk-ups. That tells me that you could show up at 8/8:30 if you wanted to, and still get a table.

You won't be pushed out but the service is speedy and the meal won't take that long. I don't know that I would arrive late for the ADR though but I am an early person not late.

I agree that VN is a pretty quick table service location. I'd allow about an hour for a full meal (two courses). They won't kick you out, but I think you'll have trouble stretching the meal out to avoid the Illuminations crowds. Personally, I'd eat at your normal pace and then find a nice place to sit and relax until the crowds thin after IllumiNations. My family likes to find a nice bench to sit on and watch people go by.

We had a 7:45 and were running to see Illuminations after eating and a stop at the bathroom.
we were seated right on time had pizza, drinks and dessert. You could slow it down by ordering your app/salad. Then waiting to order meals. They usually try to take your orders quickly but just tell them you need a few minutes. They wont rush you. We love it there! Don't forget dessert!! The zepolle is ToDie For!!
