Via Napoli of TuTu Italia

We have reservations at both, but now rethinking it. We are only doing 4 TS so not sure if we should do 2 Italian dinners. It is just me and DH and we have never been to either one. I like the looks of the atmosphere at TuTu better, but those Ricotta Cheese Fritters at VN look really delicious. We do love Italian food so we are not against having it twice in 1 week, just wondering if we should try something else. I would appreciate any opinions that would help me decide. Thank you!

I would only do one Italian since there is so much to choose from at Epcot. I haven't been to Tutto, so I can't help there, but I have been to VN and it is was very good.

Tough choice! We've only had pizza at VN and it was good, but we don't rate it as highly as some here do. I've heard good things about the other dishes.

When Alfredo's inhabited what is not Tutto Italia, it was our favorite restaurant in the world. Not just WDW, the planet. The new TI is close to what we used to get at Alfredo's and we loved it.

Atmosphere at VN at is loud and casual, at TI it's still casual, not quite as loud.

If you love Italian cuisine doing both in one trip isn't the worst idea. You're on vacation! You can have ice cream for breakfast!

I agree that it's a tough call, but I give the edge to VN. Both have good food, but they are pretty different. TI is more like a traditional Italian restaurant, with a stronger emphasis on pastas. The atmosphere is much quieter...it was almost too quiet when I was there.

VN is more casual, with emphasis on wood fired foods, but they do have pastas. I highly recommend both the pizzas and pastas as VN. The arancini at VN are among my favorite appetizers at WDW, as is the Coppa di Ma Buoni sundae.

We love Tutto Italia. Any place where everyone dresses up in ballerina dress (TuTus) works for us.
