It's been a long time coming, but the long promised dining addition to the Italy Pavilion at Epcot is now underway. The newest restaurant for operating participant, California-based Patina Group, is now under construction next to Tutto Italia Ristorante (also operated by Patina). The new quick service Pizzaria will open later this year. No further details are available at this time.
The photos below were taken on the 6th January 2010, and show the scaffolding surround the foundations of the fairly large building at the back of the Italy Pavilion.
