Smile Via Napoli or Tutto Italia?

Hello all!! Trying to plan some ADRs for a December trip and would like to know if you all liked Via Napoli over Tutto Italia or vice-versa or if they both deserve the same mark? Reviews? Thanks!!

VIA Napoli we love it. My dd5 requested it for her birthday lunch. 2 Weeks from today we will be eating lunch there! Can't wait love the Pizza. We own a pizza restaurant franchise you would think we get enough but Via Napoli is different more like what you would get in Italy.

Via Napoli for sure. That is one of the few restaurants that my son actually requests!

Love them both but for different types of meals. For pizza and salad, VN is amazing. For antipasto and pasta and wine, Tutto is a must!

VN hands down. Like PPs said, it's what you would get in Italy. There are a lot of complaints about the service. However, if you are ever in Italy or France, meals are an experience, unlike here where you scarf it down as fast as you can so you can get to your next thing. Get the aqua fresca--delicious!!!!

My brother liked Tutto, but I didn't care much for it myself. It didn't make an impression on me at all.

Thanks so much for the responses! In the past 10 years we have gone to WDW, we have never eaten in Italy, so this will be a first for us. Keep the reponses coming and if you all have dining reviews, point me in their direction and I will read (I love food porn/reviews ). Thanks again!!

Both are very good, but it depends on what you want to eat.

Via Napoli: excellent wood fired pizza, delicious appetizers (arancini, frito misto platter) and wonderful desserts (Coppa di Brutti Ma Buoni - Ugly, but Good Sundae). Atmosphere is light, bright and airy, but noisy. Service is very good. You can watch the pizzas being made at the wood fired ovens from many of the tables. There are a few non-pizza entrees, but not many.

Tutto Italia: pasta and other Italian entrees, no pizza. Very good Risotto al Frutti di Mare, prosciutto and calamari appetizers, tiramisu and chocolate torte desserts. Atmosphere and furnishings are more subdued, not as noisy. Service has always been very attentive.

Here's where I come out. VN is the best choice for an informal dinner that features pizza and dessert. If you want a more "formal" (perhaps "typical" is the better word) Italian meal with plated dishes, then VN isn't the better choice. Having said that, if I want more traditional plated dishes, then I go to Il Mulino which is far better than Tutto. So to sum up:

Pizza=VN
Plated meals=Il Mulino

Which leaves Tutto out of the picture for me. It's not bad (like Tony's). But if I am going to drop $100 at an Italian restaurant for pasta, veal and chicken dishes, I prefer to give my money to Il Mulino.

We also enjoyed VN very much. You can read our review with photos as well:
Our Via Napoli Experience with photos

I also agree with JimmyV about Il Mulino, even though we haven't tried Tutto we really love Il Mulino. I have a review with photos for that as well:
Our Il Mulino Experience with photos

DEFINITELY our 2 favorite Italian places in WDW.
