Naples Downtown Disney Menu
Naples just completed an extensive rennovation. I’ve dined there before the makeover and even during. Today’s vision shows off decor featuring plush booth seating and an open concept kitchen. It’s all about feeling like you’re in another part of the world without even leaving Disneyland Resort.
The new dining area definitely bring a sophisticated vibe to Naples which entertains both the Disneyland-goers and Downtown Disney visitors for date night, family night or any night.
“The fresh new look includes lush green foliage decorating the space and a fountain water feature serving as the focal point to anchor the design of the charming terrace. Twinkling chandeliers give the celestial atmosphere a warm and inviting glow. The picturesque setting instantly transports visitors to the Italian peninsula, overlooking the crystal blue waters of the Mediterranean with the majestic Mt. Vesuvius standing guard overhead” -Patina Group
Now onto the food . . .
Craving pizza and pasta? Disneyland Resort certainly has its share of pizza but this one shouldn’t be left behind. I love a good classic Margherita pizza with mozzarella, basil and tomato sauce, plus each pizza is made in a wood-fire stove. That is the only pizza I have ever ordered at Naples because I can’t resist a good Margherita pizza.
The menu at Naples is massive. We’re talking tons of pizza options, bruschetta, calamari, salads, pastas, Panini’s, a huge cocktail and wine menu, along with a bit of desert to top it all off.
Reviews from my readers have kind of been all over the place from the past few years. I’m hoping with the grand reopening, it will bring some stability and consistency to the served dishes.
“From the traditional eight-layer lasagna bathed in a Bolognese sauce, béchamel, and Parmesan to the pan-seared salmone served on a bed of roasted tomatoes and green beans, the menu is full of classic Italian dishes that pair perfectly with the extensive wine list offered by the glass, carafe, or bottle.” -Patina Group
