Neapolitan-style pizza goes Disney World

July 20, 2010

Stateside Neapolitan-style pizzeria will be even more integrated into American culture when Via Napoli lands at iconic Epcot at Walt Disney World this summer. The restaurant is slated to open Aug. 5, according to Orlando Attractions Magazine, and spearheaded by Nick Valenti, CEO of Patina Restaurant Group, which owns restaurants in Las Vegas,  Los Angeles and Downtown Disney District.

From the story:

Via Napoli will feature a selection of classical Neapolitan pizzas, ranging from pizza bianca, quattro stagioni, piccante, ortolano and a traditional margherita. Famed Pizzaiolo Charlie Restivo will serve as executive chef at Via Napoli, where he will craft the pies using simple and delicious Italian ingredients such as San Marzano tomatoes, Caputo flour, handmade fresh mozzarella, Parma Cotto, crumbled sausage and water calibrated specifically to the pH found in Naples.
