Naples Ristorante e Pizzeria announces phased renovation plans

A carefully planed renovation at Naples Ristorante e Pizzeria will refresh the restaurants look, upgrade the dining experience, and add a new patio bar to your Downtown Disney foodie options. The Patina Restaurant Group just announced the renovation plans, which they’re doing in phases to keep Naples open throughout the course of construction.

The new outdoor bar will be a central feature of an expanded patio with additional al fresco dining among all new landscaping. The building renovation includes an addition of a new all glass entry, welcoming guests to the first and second floor dining areas.

We are excited about our first look at the concept art for the patio area:

Inside, three new wood-burning pizza ovens will be installed and will be the focal point of the room. The second-floor dining area will feature an open kitchen as well as enhanced outdoor terrace dining.

The Naples experience is a full immersion into the dining of Southern Italy – from the food and wine to the décor. Authentic Neapolitan pizza is made the traditional way, with a textured, soft and charred crust. The pies are crafted using simple and delicious essential Italian ingredients, along with fresh local products.

The restaurant will remain open during construction and completed in three phases. The current menu of regional Italian specialties from Executive Chef Umberto Rubelli will still be fully available throughout the entirety of the renovation process. This will allow guests to continue enjoying their favorite Neapolitan pasta dishes, secondi, seasonal salads, Italian wines, and the bustling, yet relaxed atmosphere reflective of the restaurant’s namesake city.

Visitors can also expect Napolini, Naples’ fast-casual concept, to undergo a revamp during the latter part of construction. Napolini will stay open as well, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner to guests on the go in need of an authentic Italian quick bite. All renovations are slated to be completed in fall, 2018.

Sounds delicious, we can’t wait! Let us know how you like your Naples pizza in the comments.
