Preview and Review: Enzo’s Hideaway Sunday Supper in Disney Springs

No matter which day of the week it is when you read this, we’re taking you to Sunday Supper at Enzo’s Hideaway Tunnel Bar and Restaurant!

Still somewhat new to the Disney Springs dining scene, Enzo’s Hideaway Tunnel Bar opened as one third of a trio of eateries this past January. (The Hideaway’s counterparts are Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante and Pizza Ponte). Even newer, though, is Enzo’s Sunday Supper — a special menu served from 4:00 pm – 10:00 pm every Sunday. We were able to attend a preview of this event on June 10th, but it is open in full starting this coming Sunday, June 17th.

A note before we begin: you don’t need to make a special reservation for Sunday Supper. In fact, from 4:00 to 10:00 pm every Sunday moving forward, this is the only menu that will be available. So, if you’re interested in Sunday Supper, just be sure to make your Advance Dining Reservation in that window of time.

And now, let’s step underground in Disney Springs once again, for Sunday Supper at Enzo’s Hideaway Tunnel Bar!

Atmosphere

Since our primary purpose is checking out the new dining experience, our tour will be brief.

But as a quick reminder of the setting for Sunday Supper, the story goes that Enzo — half of the storied duo behind Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante — discovered a space tucked underneath what once served as an air terminal for Disney Springs.  As it turned out, the space was a hideaway during the Prohibition’s dry years for a team of flying rum-runners.

Enzo decided to keep much of the graffiti and effects from the bygone era right as they were.

And with the original decor in place, Enzo transformed the spot into a dining destination where he could serve his Italian family’s recipes.

And those recipes are served not only throughout the week, but also through the new Sunday Supper at Enzo’s!

Eats

Sunday Supper at Enzo’s is a prix fixe meal, which will cost $45 per adult guest, or $19 for children ages 9 and under.

Note that the experience is not all-you-care-to-eat. With the exception of the Pasta course — which is the only refillable option — you receive a set amount.

Something VERY unique to Sunday Supper is that it is a “BYOB affair.” You are welcome to bring your own bottle of wine with no corkage fee! The servers will present glasses and serve your wine gladly.

That said, you can also order from the regular beverage menus, if you prefer.

That’s what we did when we ordered two cocktails recommended by our server: the Luciano Spritz and the Hazelnut Old Fashioned.

Luciano Spritz and Hazelnut Old Fashioned

Both were described as being classic choices for Sunday Supper, as they are easy to drink and sip on throughout the meal, and tasty without having flavors that overpower the food. For my part, I found the Luciano Spritz — Solerno Blood Orange, blood orange juice, and Villa Sandi Prosecco — wasn’t sweet at all, though it’s a fruit-flavored cocktail.

So I got the fruity notes without the overpowering sweetness — a really nice choice for an Italian meal.

The Hazelnut Old Fashioned, though, was an especially lovely drink.

Very, very smooth, offering a unique flavor that also goes well with Italian food without being too distracting,

While we’re on the topic of beverages… my water glass was never empty. That is to say, the servers and runners were walking around throughout the meal, making sure we had what we needed. This is a huge leap in service from our first experience at Enzo’s, and in fact, the entire atmosphere on this visit was very warm and welcoming.

Aside from our drinks, bread was immediately on the table along with olive oil for dipping.

Then, both components of the Starter Course — the Antipasto Board and Salad — were served at the same time.

The bowl of fresh market greens with carrots, tomatoes, and apple is finished with a balsamic oil, and makes for a great, light start with its bright flavor.

But the Antipasto Board was the true highlight — and one of the highlight of the whole meal. The slices of meat were large and there was plenty on the board.

I especially enjoyed the large pitted olives and roasted red peppers.

From the get-go, we felt like we were getting a LOT of food.

Meats and Pasta

The Meats course features Hand-crafted Meatballs, Braised Wagyu Short Rib, Sweet and Spicy Sausage, 1/2 Roasted Free Range Chicken, and Atlantic Salmon. While the Salmon and the Meats are served at the same time, the Salmon pieces are served directly on each plate by your server, with one piece for each member at the table.

It was wonderfully prepared, with great seasoning and nicely crisped on the outside.

The rest of the Meats Platter has a unique set-up in that the housemade meatballs, sweet and spicy sausage, and braised beef wagyu short rib were presented in the same dish. These are served alongside the 1/2 Roasted Chicken and the Rigatoni for the Pasta Course.

The Rigatoni is served served with Sunday Sauce and topped with a giving amount of parmigiano reggiano,.

Ours was cooked perfectly with a nice firmness. We find that the al dente nature of Enzo’s pasta is on the extreme side, so if you’re not a fan of very al dente, let your server know.

Oh, and just as a reminder from above — the Pasta course is the only refillable option of the meal.

Of the housemade meatballs, sweet and spicy sausage, and braised beef wagyu short rib dish, the meatballs were, sadly, the least memorable of the three. (I say “sadly” because they were what I was looking forward to the most.)

Meatballs

I tasted more of the breading and seasoning than the actual meat.

The Braised Wagyu Short Rib, on the other hand, was terrific. It’s cooked for at least six hours with the result that the meat was so tender no knife was required to cut it. (But isn’t that supposed to be the case with Wagyu anyway?)

Still my favorite was the incredibly flavorful sweet and spicy sausage. My only complaint was that there wasn’t more of it — just one sausage cut into halves for each person. I would’ve happily eaten much more.

As for the 1/2 Roasted Free Range Chicken, it’s served with seasonal veggies and fingerling potatoes. And when it came out, I thought it looked amazing.

Unfortunately, though, it was a bit dry.

But the fingerling potatoes ended up being one of my favorite parts of the entire meal. They were savory and had great flavor.

A suggestion: I might request an extra plate for this round — though you receive a clean plate between every course, I think it would have been nice to be able to plate my chicken and veggies separately from the other dishes served in this course, since I don’t think they go as well with the other meats, pasta, and sauces. Servers were so accommodating that I’m sure it would not have been a problem to request an extra plate to enjoy these flavor separately.

Sunday Supper ends, of course, with something sweet.

Make that a few somethings sweet… Cannoli, Tiramisu, and Gelato. Upon first glance, I thought the portions could’ve been more giving, but everything was so rich and indulgent that in the end we had a hard time trying to finish everything.

I especially enjoyed the Cannoli and its super fresh shell.

And I really loved the extra dollop of filling served on the side, which I personally enjoyed with the rich Chocolate Gelato.

Nosh or Not?

You might want to try Sunday Supper at Enzo’s if:

  • You’d like to try a nice array of Italian cuisine at Enzo’s Hideaway.
  • BYOB without a corkage fee has your name written all over it!
  • You really want to experience the atmosphere of the Tunnel Bar, and this new event seems like it might fit the bill for you.

You might want to pass on Sunday Supper at Enzo’s if:

  • You’re not a fan of prix fixe menus, preferring to select from a full menu. (Again, the regular menu is not available during Sunday Supper.)
  • The limited time (just 4:00 – 10:00 pm on Sundays) simply doesn’t work in your vacation plans.

Overall

I was a little hesitant coming into Sunday Supper based on my first experience at Enzo’s Hideaway Tunnel Bar. I was simply not impressed with my meal, and I felt the service was lacking. Granted, it was opening night for the restaurant so I can understand some confusion among the staff. But I’ve been to more than a few opening nights in my day, and it just struck me as a different level of unpreparedness.

I am happy to say that this experience at Sunday Supper was MUCH different. I felt like I was getting more bang for the buck, food-wise. Even if every single item wasn’t a standout, there were more than a couple of highlights during the meal and we left quite satisfied. I also enjoyed enthusiastic and attentive service. And while I didn’t “Bring My Own Bottle” (since I was there to taste what the restaurant had to offer for review purposes), the whole BYOB scene without a corkage fee is going to be a pretty sweet perk for lots of guests. It seems like things are looking up in the Hideaway, and I’m glad to give this particular event a thumbs up.

Interested guests may want to know that this experience (along with regular dining at Enzo’s) is 1 Table Service credit on the Disney Dining Plan.

    Are there any substitutions available for vegetarians during the Sunday Supper? I’m not a vegetarian, but my husband is. He’d love the unlimited pasta, but struggle with everything else.

  2. Fran says

    That’s looks really good! Is the salad & antipasto board served family style or is that per person?

    I always enjoy your reviews. Thanks!

  3. John says

    Is there a vegetarian option (not mentioned)? If not, another reason to pass on this experience is if you are a vegetarian. Very disappointing.

  4. Frank Gary says

    My wife and daughter had the Sunday supper yesterday at Enzo’s . They both said it was one of the best experiences they have ever had a Disney. They Both told me the food was excellent and plentiful. We are members of the Disney vacation club and have made at least 40 visits to Disney . The Sunday dinner will be on our list every time in any future visit to Disney. I am looking forward to enjoying the experience myself when I go back to Disney in November. Thank you .

    We want to try the Sunday supper but would like to know is the antipasto board individual, or for the whole table. Also are there three dishes for each person for does the entire table share what is in those three dishes. If they are for the whole table it doesn’t seem that you are getting very much food.

  6. DFB Sarah says

    Karen, during our visit, we saw tables larger than one or two persons receive multiple platings of the entree items. So the trio dishes stayed the same size, but they received, for example, two trios for a table of four (rather than one trio for a table of one or two). The same holds true for the antipasto board. (To give you some reference on size, we were given portions for a table of two.) Hope this helps!
