    Best pizza, VIA NAPOLI! OMG its wonderful!!!! :goodvibes The best pizza in disney for sure! Great portion too!

    Best pasta, Tutto Italia. I love their lasagna and also the fetuccini w/ parmesan cream sauce & pancetta. SO GOOD! :goodvibes

    The absolute WORST italian food i've ever had in my life, Tony's. Gross beyond words.

    I have to jump in for the Tony's hate. It was honestly the worst meal we have ever had at Disney.

    I would stick with Tutto Italia or Via Napoli.

    As usual, I agree with JimmyV. This is my exact order also.

    Il Mulino and Portobello are the only ones worth visiting, in my opinion. But if you must choose something within a park, go for one of the Epcot restaurants. Stay far away from Mama Melrose's and Tony's if you have any inclination toward good Italian food.

    I have only eaten at 3 - Tutto, Portabello and Mama Melrose. We LOVED Tutto and Portabello but I would give the edge to Tutto for their excellent lasagna. MM didn't compare to the two meals we just had at the first two last week. Yum!:love:

    AHHHH I have never eaten at Tony's so I made ADR there our first night in May. I need a little Italian sometime during the week. If I change I would have to rearrange almost everyday :faint:
    Surely there must be SOMETHING there that is tolerable !!

    If you stay away from dishes that contain tomato/marinara sauce, like chicken parmesan, spaghetti and meatballs (gross meatballs btw), you should be fine. Ppl who have had steak, flatbread, or calamari have enjoyed their meals.

    Thanks for advice:thumbsup2 Though if I can't trust the meatballs in an Italian restaurant I sure as hell ain't eating the calamari lol :rotfl2: Looks like I'll be looking over my ADR's tomorrow and make a few "adjustments"
    Thanks again

    Oh ya no kidding. Since there's no NHL, we've been going to AHL games (Toronto Marlies). I kinda like that better anyway. Great hockey at a fraction of the cost! Bonus! ;)

    Anywho, i'd definitely try to make a few adjustments if you can avoid Tony's. You can always try it out of course. But dont say I didnt warn you. Lol! :joker:

    Il Mulino-hands down. It is on the dining plan-it's a signature, requiring two table services credits.

    Sorry, but while it IS a signature restaurant it is not on the DDP- not all signatures are.

    I am so glad to see all the Tony's reviews on here. We have never eaten there and have tried on our last couple visits but were never successful. Looks like I may try a little less next time around.
