FULL Review!! Enzo’s Hideaway Tunnel Bar and Restaurant in Disney Springs

Looking for a little hideaway? Then Enzo’s your guy…

Enzo’s Hideaway Tunnel Bar and Restaurant is now officially open in Disney World’s Disney Springs, and we have a full review for you today.

Together with Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante and Pizza Ponte, Enzo’s Hideaway is the lounge option (which also offers full table service) within this trio of new Italian restaurants in Disney Springs. Like Maria & Enzo’s, the Hideaway is headed by Chef Theo Schoenegger. But the Tunnel Bar puts forth its own spin on Italian cuisine inspired by apertivo bars in Rome.

When you step inside Enzo’s Hideaway Tunnel Bar, you’re entering a speakeasy in what are said to have once been rum-running tunnels with the story also inspired by the true Florida history of rum-running. (Hence, the Prohibition-era cocktails you’ll spot on the menu.)

Between this and Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante, it’s clear that Enzo is one busy guy.

Let’s see what he’s been up to.

So, who exactly is Enzo? He is Maria’s husband, and together this immigrant couple from Italy ran a bakery in what was formerly the Air Terminal for Disney Springs. When the air terminal closed, they made a name for themselves in the town by opening up Pizza Ponte. [Read more…]

First Look AND Review!! Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante Opening Soon in Disney Springs

We’d like to introduce you to two of our newest friends in Disney Springs: Maria & Enzo!

Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante is the table service component of a trio of brand new Italian eateries in Disney Springs, along with Enzo’s Hideaway Tunnel Bar (which will open soon) and the already open Pizza Ponte.

These three restaurants, run by the Patina Restaurant Group, are part of the complete complex of The Edison.  Though the three are bound together by location, atmosphere, and story, each presents its own take on Italian cuisine.

We were able to attend a Sneak Peek Media Event, which included a dedication for Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante.

The Ristorante will be open to guests soon (a full opening is anticipated by January 10th, though soft openings may precede). But just after the Media Event, the full menu was open for the evening. So today, we’re excited to bring you both a First Look AND a full review!
