Walt Disney World Resort had a very unique visitor earlier this week. Dave Portnoy is the founder of Barstool Sports, an extremely popular sports & pop culture blog. They are known for their coverage of pop culture events, sports, and also the wild personalities of their employees.
Founder Dave Portnoy is often in front of the camera as a Podcast host and internet personality. He is best known for his iconic “one bite pizza reviews,” which have the reputation of being able to make or break a Pizzaria. Portnoy recently took his talent and his appetite to Walt Disney World Resort where he reviewed one of the Resort’s most iconic slices of pizza.
Dave Portnoy Spends Day at Disney
Portnoy’s big personality and his adult sense of humor make him seem like the last person who would enjoy a day at Disney. On the contrary, the founder spent an entire day on a private tour through Walt Disney World. He video-blogged the entire day and was not afraid to share his opinions on everything.
His main reason for being there was to do another one-bite pizza review. His reviews are on a 10-point scale, and he judges each pizzeria based on its plain cheese slice. He is notoriously critical and harsh on his ratings. On this trip, Portnoy planned to visit the Via Napoli restaurant located within EPCOT.
This review is not Portnoys first within the Park. Back in 2021, he visited PizzeRizzo at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. His slice at PizzeRizzo was rated a 7.1/10. Portnoy seems indifferent about the slice.
Barstool Reviews Via Napoli Ristorante E Pizzeria
Most Disney fans consider the pizza at Via Napoli to be much better than the pizza at PizzeRizzo. This is why fans were surprised to see Portnoy rate the pizza the same score, a 7.1. Portnoy, who is a fan of Neapolitan pizzas, said that the worst score he would give that style of pizza is 6.8. Via Napoli’s slice only managed to earn two decimals higher.

Fans do not think that this review was justified, but in classic Dave Portnoy fashion, he doesn’t seem to care.
