On Tuesday, January 8, 2019 the Naples and Napolini Restaurants had a grand re-launch of their Downtown Disney locations!! The restaurants showcased their highly-anticipated renovations designed by Shea Design.
The Naples and Napolini restaurants are a part of the Patina Restaurant Group that has a bicoastal collection of 60+ boutique restaurants. We are lucky enough to have two of these restaurants in our Downtown Disney District in California! The Patina group is well known for its unique and impeccable market-driven menus, modern décor, exemplary service, and outstanding beverage programs.
The Naples Ristorante e Bar, located near the tram boarding are in the heart of the Downtown Disney District in California, is a two-story Italian eatery fit for the whole family. Guests can choose from a menu of authentic Italian favorites like handcrafted pasta or wood-fired Neapolitan pizza. If you want pizza done right there is no better place to go than an authentic Italian eatery. The first floor is designed as a classic Italian pizzeria, so you know you will get that perfect pizza. Mwah! Guests can also enjoy a glass of wine from, their extensive list of wine selections, on the second floor featuring gorgeous views of the promenade with the sounds of their water fountain in the background. Sounds as if you could actually be in Italy!
The Sister location to Naples Ristorante is the Napolini Pizzeria. Located along the walkway of the Downtown Disney District, guests can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner at this quick-service Italian location! Guests can also enjoy the promenade, patio, or balcony as they take in the breathtaking views or they can dine inside in the pizzeria where they can enjoy the fun environment for the whole family.
As part of the highly-anticipated renovations the Naples Ristorante e Bar now has few new design elements. Guests can now enjoy a mural of photographs by Naples Photographer, Mimmo Fontanella. The restaurant will also feature a large “infinite loop” lighting fixture, a fire-themed mosaic glass tile about a trio of new wood-burning pizza ovens, and an expanded outdoor patio with a new outside bar and fountain wall.
According to Chief executive Officer of Patina Restaurant Group, Nick Valenti, “I am delighted to welcome everyone to the new, refreshed Naples and Napolini, with a new design intended to evoke the coastline of the Bay of Naples, Capri and Positano. I originally created the Napels concept to showcase the cooking of my native Southern Italy”. Guests can now find new menu items, such as, a variety of fresh seafood and a new build-your-own pizza program.
Guests who attended the dedication ceremony were among the company of members of the restaurant’s staff and executives from Disney and Patina Restaurant Group. Guests were also joined by special guests Chef Mickey Mouse and Chef Goofy. After the dedication ceremony, media and guests were able to partake in the food and hospitality of the Naples and Napolini restaurants.
