Maria & Enzo's
The surprises at this excellent Italian restaurant in Disney Springs start right when you arrive and gaze upon the airy dining room. Complete with 50-foot-high ceilings, a grand staircase, and sweeping views over Lake Buena Vista, it's themed after an abandoned airline terminal, with lots of fun travel touches that include a vintage-style glove dangling like a giant chandelier overhead. Chef Theo Schoenegger is a native of Italy
, and his menu spotlights specialties from Rome
and Sicily. Delicious Italian cheeses and cured meats are perfect starters for sharing. And signature dishes include Sicilian arancini di carne
(rice balls with meat) and a spiral pasta dish topped with crab called busiate con granchio
. Italian red, white, and Prosecco wines star on the well-informed wine list. And don't miss a plate of cannoli to share for a sweet finish.
