Today we showcase the Italy Pavilion and their Food & Wine offerings, all brought to us by the amazingly talented food craftsmen and women from Via Napoli. We start with long standing Donkey Cart and home of some of the best options for cooling off on a hot day including wines, spirits, and gelato. If you are just looking for a drink to continue going around the world or if you want to get something for that mid day break you will not find a better spot.

The seasonal pizza window is a favorite stop of mine because, while it is just grab and go, it is the same amazing pizza and dishes they offer inside the restaurant. This year the two new options: the Pizza Bianca and Polpette E Mozzarella Parmigina. Bith offer so much flavor, they are must haves!

Now, it wouldn't be Food & Wine without the Italy Marketplace along the World Showcase Lagoon, and this year's options are perfecto!
