Via Napoli (pics)

We took a trip to Via Napoli a week ago and as always truly enjoyed our meal.

The lobby is almost always overcrowded and too small for the hordes who want to eat here. The food is that popular!

Inside, the restaurant is light and airy, with an intentionally high ceiling to generate the feeling of roominess. It even kind of works!

Pizza is the big menu item here. They use authentic materials, real cheese slabs, and a water source in New York that is said to have similar qualities and minerals to the original source in Italy. You may think it makes no difference, but you'd be wrong. Pizza anywhere else in Florida is unlikely to taste this good.

The place is so popular you are unlikely to be able to "drop in" without reservations (407-WDW-DINE), but coming when they first open at 11:30 would be one possible time for drop in dining.
