We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Maria &Enzo’s. The food was delicious. Our server Martina was gracious and knowledgeable and very efficient. She did not miss any detail. She was aware of our needs, and kept our beverages filled. I had the Sicilian vegetable and white bean soup and the ravioli. My husband had the rice ball appetizer and the baked pasta. The portions were large, and we both brought part of our entrees home. We will definitely be returning to this restaurant.

Everyone was friendly. The food was just ok. The steak from the breakfast was hard and the carbonara I ordered was cold and blob of heavy pasta hard to eat.
Buffet was nice but wish the dessert was homemade and less generic tasting. Overall good experience would only go back if it was cheaper..

Dinner was excellent, from the moment we walked into the restaurant. The front of house staff was pleasant and promptly greeted us. Our server, Manuel, was attentive and delivered exceptional service. It was the perfect place to celebrate my husband's birthday and the end of our vacation.

Classic Disney dinning experience. The room is beautifully designed with a wonderful theme. The food was... fine. The wait staff was busy but reasonably attentive. My husband and I had a lovely dinner until the party of 14, with 8 kids all under 7 years old, was seated right next to us. But what do you expect at Disney?

Limited menu. Baked pasta was average. Rigatoni Norma has chili and more than I wanted so I sent it back. They were very good about that which is why I gave them a high mark for service. Value wasn’t there for a return visit or recommendation. Also we were in the VIP Lounge but we could hear the hand dryers in the nearby restrooms. Huh???

The place as nice and quite as it was and the atmosphere was a wonderful one, it was crazy expensive and only have very little to offer as for food. Their wine selection was never ending but only had a little food to offer, the food was expensive and didn’t come with sides or pasta, you would think that an Italian place would offer salads with their pasta dishes for the price you are paying and yes it was a large portion but the chicken was very very skinny so you were still hungry when you left, (had the chicken parmigiana). My husband and I spent 100 dollars for a glass of wine and two chicken Parms and a side of pasta that we had to pay separately for, as beautiful as the place was we will not be going back for a while.

We got there last minute because we were at the park all day. They still took our party of 8 and the food was fresh and delicious. The staff was very friendly and fast. It was a great way to end the day while watching the fireworks from Magic Kingdom in the distance.

Attended sunday brunch. View of Disney Springs was great when seated in main dining room. The food it self was good but felt a little lacking. Entree is 1 choice and meat/appetizer bar is buffet style. The buffet style bar felt underwhelming. 2 cheeses and 4 meats were available of good quality. 2 Types of salad, 1 pasta salad and some lackluster breads. There also was a smoked salmon carving station which was a nice touch. Found no actual breakfast type items at the buffet bar items which felt as its downfall. Desserts were average to slightly below average.

The food was good, but the service was awful. Our appetizers came out the same time we received our drinks. We ordered butter with our bread and had to ask a second time for it. Our lunch took a long time to come to the table. One guest asked for extra sauce, and it came after we were finished eating. We waited 15 minutes after we were done for our waitress to come back with our check. Slowest service I’ve ever experienced at any Disney locations.

Very goo Italian food. Bread was hot, crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy inside, served with olive oil. Anti-pasta is great, with rice ball, mozzarella & tomato in balsamic glaze, & prosciutto. The pasta was al-dente but did not like the taste it got from chilli pepper. Chicken Cutlet was thick and was not served with a side of pasta. Beautiful waterfront views and the service was top-shelf.

The food was good, but not great. I almost laughed at the appetizer for two because it was such a small portion for $24! The service was good and the atmosphere lively, but it is the strangest decor... Art Deco airport? I didn’t understand it. Interesting for an Italian restaurant. The menu is small. I wanted the eggplant parm which apparently was a large portion but it didn’t come with anything... no spaghetti or other pasta... that had to be ordered separately. Ended up getting the spaghetti with meatballs which was very tasty. Overall an ok experience but not sure if I’d return.

Dinner here was good and the service was excellent. Guess we were hoping for a place with more options on the menu, as well with more authentic taste. Had the spaghetti and meatballs, the meatballs were really good, but the sauce/gravy seemed more can/jar based than we have found at other Italian restaurants. However, overall value was good.

We chose this place because the wife was wanting pasta. The entrees do not come with pasta, it is a $4 upcharge to add a side of pasta. We both had the chicken parmesan that was pounded thin, breaded, friend and dressed with sauce and cheese. The portion was huge. There was no flavor. Desperately needed salt. The side pasta was straight out of the box and the sauce had no taste and needed salt. No wonder we could get a 5:30 reservation at 4:30. I don't think they get any return customers.
