Via Napoli Construction
Via Napoli is currently under construction in the Italy Pavilion of Epcot. The new 300 seat restaurant is located in located next to the Tutto Italia Ristorante in the back of the Pavilion. The addition of the Via Napoli actually expands the boundaries of the Pavilion, so no current feature had to be removed to make room for it.
The front facade looks quite like the artist's rendering that had been presented early on for this authentic pizzaria.
Reservations Starting on August 6th
Beginning on August 6th you can call to make reservations for September 10th and later. The restaurant will have a "Grand Opening" celebration on August 5th, but will operate in a "soft" opening mode prior to the official opening on September 10th. It will only accept walk-ins during that time.
