Pinocchio Village Haus Review

Pinocchio Village Haus Review

In the back of It’s a Small World sits Pinocchio’s Village Haus, a large restaurant with Old World theming that serves Italian-American cuisine. Village Haus is a counter service restaurant whose main offerings are flatbreads and salads. The menu was revamped about a year ago from personal pizzas to more unique flatbreads.

Inside, the restaurant is huge and during peak season can be rather busy. There are different scenes from Pinocchio painted on many of the walls as well as several other fun theming elements. Several windows look out onto the queue for It’s a Small World. Snagging a table at these windows offers a great view and fun opportunity to wave at the guests below.

Upon entrance guests are given a menu and out in a line to order. When we were there, Cast Members were not allowing guests to get a table until they had their food. The flatbreads do not come with a side salad like the personal pizzas did. The flatbread is big enough for a meal on its own, but if you’d like to split the flatbread like I did I would suggest getting a side. We ordered the barbeque chicken flatbread, breadsticks, and a Ceasar side salad. After receiving our meal we were actually shown to a table rather than having to hunt one down ourselves. This seating method seems much more efficient to me by cutting out the stress of table hunting.

There is a condiment bar, which has a variety of sauces and dressings allowing you to dress your salad as you please. The barbeque chicken flatbread was quite good. The crust was crisp and the amount of chicken on the pizza was just right. The chicken wasn’t dry, which is an issue with most pizzas I have with chicken on them. We got more barbeque sauce to dip our pizza in as well as some ranch. The breadsticks were soft and better tasting than I had anticipated. Honestly, I regret getting the side salad as it was just boring romaine lettuce and parmesan cheese. Splitting the breadsticks and flatbread were enough to be a decent lunch for us.

Overall, the food at Village Haus is good, but what really makes the place is the intricate theming and the view of It’s a Small World.

Food – Standard Italian-American dishes with some interesting twists such as the caprese and barbeque chicken flatbreads. If you want Italian food but don’t have the time wait for a table at Tony’s Town Square, Village Haus is the place for you.

Atmosphere – It can be very busy here and noisy, but the theming is worth it.

Service – Cast Members are efficient and friendly.

Tips – Try to get a seat by the windows to watch people in the It’s a Small World queue. There is also upstairs seating which is generally less crowded and offers a nice view of Fantasyland.
