Patina Restaurant Group showed off yesterday their newly remodeled restaurant in Downtown Disney® District, Naples Ristorante e Bar. The renovations started last year and we were able to finally see them all. They include:
• A mural of photographs by Naples photographer Mimmo Fontanella
• A large “infinite loop” lighting fixture
• A fire-themed mosaic glass tile above a trio of new wood-burning pizza ovens
• An expanded outdoor patio with a new outside bar and fountain wall
The celebration included executives from Disney and Patina Restaurant Group joined by special guests Chef Mickey Mouse and Chef Goofy. Following the dedication, media and guests were invited to partake in the food and hospitality at Naples.
Thank you Naples Ristorante e Bar for inviting us to the grand reopening!
Chef Umberto Rubelli hails from Milan, Italy and brings an authentic Italian touch to the food. New menu items include a variety of fresh seafood, simply prepared fish selections with lemon, olive oil and tomato. There is a new build-your-own pizza menu at Napolini.
Most ingredients are imported from Italy and they use local grown for vegetables.
Chef Umberto also recommended all the desserts, but he says the Tiramisu is his favorite because it is his grandmother recipe, I can't wait to try it.

I am so happy that they re-opened. We are often at Disney and to have good food and authentic Italian dishes is something we will all look forward to on our next trip.
