Review: by-the-slice pizza at EPCOT’s Via Napoli

Don’t do it. If I had any free hands, this would have gotten a big thumbs DOWN. However, it is raining on and off and no one has been by to squeegee the outdoor tables. Not wishing to put my plate down in a puddle, I took cover in that alcove near the stairs with the lady’s head on the bannister.

The "crust" – and I use that term loosely, since there isn’t anything remotely "crusty" about it – is bready, which is typical of Sicilian-style pizza. Neapolitan-style pizza does not seem to be available at the window. Since there’s nothing crispy going on anywhere on this thing, the "crust" is a FAIL. If you were expecting more than half a teaspoon of tomato sauce (I was), then you will be disappointed. The cheese at least is pretty fresh.

They are clearly making the take out window pizza on the cheap – VERY cheap. I won’t be doing this again unless someone – ok MANY someones tell me that it has improved.

FAIL

Via Napoli gets three thumbs up

We loved our meal. The crust of the pizza was limp except for the "handle" but the flavor was outstanding. We had the family salad first and then a large pizza – half was cheese and the other half a hodge-podge of eggplant, mushroom, artichoke and ham. With a pitcher of sangria, we are VERY happy for $21 each.

I am such a perfume ho – I bought a Prada scent made from citrus, jasmine and vanilla, and got a boatload of samples, too!

I’ve reached Italy. Battery looking weak… Still raining lightly, and it is SIGNIFICANTLY cooler now, with a lusty wind that wafts the delicious aromas of the Italian perfumes shop all the way into America. I could do some serious damage in that shop… *le sigh*

Moon over the Italian Pavilion, EPCOT
Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida
Saturday, February 16th 2008


What is is with me and the moon? I dunno! For those of you who have been there, I’ll tell you where I was standing. You know the courtyard, where the nekkid statue of King Triton holding the sea shell is? I’m standing there, so the moon is over the restaurant. I liked the way the branches looked, all feathery against the twilight blue sky (data on the original photo says 6:00 PM; those sunset shots I posted earlier in the week were taken at 6:08 PM, right after this one).
