via napoli or tutto italia with kids?

Hello,

I'm trying to finalize my ADRs for our October trip and can't decide between Via Napoli or Tutto Italia. We are a party of 7, myself, DH, his parents and our 3 girls (6, 2 and 1).

I've looked at the menus and think that Tutto appeals to me more, but am wondering with the kids if we're better off going to Via Napoli. Is Tutto really fancy? My kids are generally very well behaved in restaurants but they are kids and do make noise So do you think we would be more comfortable at Via Napoli instead?

thanks for your input!

I would choose Via Napoli hands down over Tutto if I had younger kids. I think the food at Via Napoli would appeal more to kids, the kids spaghetti and meatballs could easily be shared by all 3 of your kids, it is huge. Tutto is dark inside and has More of an Adult feel to it

It's Disney World. Kids will be kids. Everyone visiting knows it's a family park. You will be fine at either restaurant. There are really only a few restaurants at WDW that kids do not belong but Tutto Italia and Via Napoli are not one of those restaurants. I have dined at both with 2 young children and have never had a problem. If the food is good, the kids will be too busy stuffing their faces to make any noise lol. We are going to Tutto for my dad's birthday. We actually just switched from Via Napoli to Tutto. It will be 5 kids ranging from 2-8 years old plus 7 adults. I'm not afraid of feeling uncomfortable at all. And I am not one of those parents who ignores their child's "noises" and continues with their meal.

I concur, Via Napoli is a good choice with children. It's more child friendly and a good menu for kids.

I'm doing Via Napoli with my 2 year old

It looks more family friendly and she loves pizza so that's why I picked it

Via Napoli is great for kids. We really enjoy it..the food is great and the dining area is open and airy. Because the way it is set up, the kids can be a bit load and it isn't a big deal.
