Good morning from the Italy pavilion at Epcot! This lovely pavilion opened on the park’s opening date in 1982 and it has been a guest-favorite ever since. Today this area of the park is home to shops and several yummy dining options, including Via Napoli and Tutto Italia Ristorante, among others.

Hmm, how early is too early for one of their chocolate chip cannoli?


  • Amen to the pizza window!! The pizza there is THE BEST! Tastes just like my Nonna’s.

  • The Italy Pavilion will always a special place in my heart, not just because of the Via Napoli pizza, but I had my wedding ceremony there. 😉

  • One of my favorite places in all of WDW.
    Tutto Gusto should be mentioned too. Glass of wine and a cannoli for lunch!!! Oh yeah!!!
    Just wish the pizza window would be open more often. I enjoy that the pizza window is thick crust while inside Via Napoli, they have thinner crust.

  • Still, after all these years of visiting Epcot, Tutto Italia remains our absolute favorite restaurant in all WDW.

  • It’s never too early for cannoli!
