Disney has followed up their recent release of the menu for their upcoming Italian restaurant, Via Napoli, with additional details about the eatery’s opening and options.
The “grand opening” of Via Napoli will take place at the Italy pavilion at Epcot on August 5, though despite the “grand” nature of that day, the restaurant will remain in a “soft opening” phase through September 10, when it “officially” opens. During the initial “soft opening” phase, no reservations will be taken and patrons will be accepted as walk-ins. Reservations for dates starting on Sept. 10 and beyond will begin on August 6. It’s all a bit confusing, but it allows the staff time to get into a groove before full table service begins.
Speaking of table service, that’s exactly the style of restaurant that Via Napoli is. Disney has confirmed there no quick service at this location. Those interested in using the Disney Dining Plan will be able to at a cost of one point per person per meal.
Via Napoli’s wood-fired pizza, which seems to be its signature item, will be available in three sizes: individual, large, and “mezzo metro,” or half meter (a.k.a. extra large – 12 slices!). The same menu will be available throughout lunch and dinner and it does include a selection of vegetarian options.
