Choosing a place to dine while in Disney Springs can be super overwhelming. This shopping spot is chock-full of amazing food joints. In fact, we’d even go so far as to say there’s more good food here than in the parks! Of course, the best way to pick a restaurant is by considering exactly what you’d like to get out of your dining experience. In some cases, vacationers are looking for someplace super nice. Other times, a family on a trip might be looking for a restaurant that will serve both food and entertainment. There are options for both of these groups of people. However, there are also those people who are just looking to fill their bellies with good food quickly and inexpensively. For these latter visitors, there is Pizza Ponte. We love Pizza Ponte for a variety of reasons. Below we’ve listed some of the reasons we adore this restaurant and we think you will too.


1. Fun Storyline

Pizza Ponte is part of a trio of restaurants that all play a part in a complicated and fascinating storyline that entertains guests in true Disney style. The story goes that Italian couple Maria and Enzo opened this small slice shop in an abandoned air terminal in the 1930s. The slice shop was so successful that the couple went on to open the table-service restaurant, Maria & Enzo’s. The couple also runs Enzo’s Hideaway, a speakeasy-style lounge set in a series of basement tunnels that were uncovered during a renovation. This story is a lot of fun on its own, and searching for little details that help fill out the story while dining or drinking in any one of these three establishments is even more fun. Look for such details when grabbing a slice at Pizza Ponte. You won’t be disappointed.

2. Clever Name

In addition to a clever backstory, Pizza Ponte also has a clever name. Obviously, the name is Italian, considering the aforementioned storyline, but those who don’t speak Italian may wonder what it means. The answer? Well, “ponte” means “bridge” in Italian. Considering the restaurant is located right by a bridge, this is quite fitting and might even help you remember where to find the place.

3. Clean and Simple

We love the clean and simple decor and setup of the place. The simplicity is quite refreshing when you’re feeling overwhelmed, and yet the decor still manages to tell a story. Everything is laid out in a way that makes sense, meaning less congestion when the crowds get heavy. Diners are able to take a peek at what pizzas are available with a quick glance through the large glass display windows, and the sweet treats are equally as easy to spot.

4. Plenty of Seating

Walking Disney Springs for an entire day is tiring and hard on your legs and feet, especially if you’ve been walking the parks as well. Therefore, it’s quite nice that this eatery gives its guests so many places to sit back and relax as they enjoy their pizza and get off their feet.

5. By the Slice

We love that the pizza at this restaurant is served by the slice. This means you can choose to eat only one piece, or you can order three. It also means you can mix and match, something you’re sure to appreciate when you see the wonderful variety of toppings this place has available.

6. Yummy Sandwiches

Not in the mood for pizza? No worries! Pizza Ponte serves up sandwiches too, meaning you’re sure to find something you can enjoy. Their muffuletta is wonderful as is their Pomodoro. No matter which kind of sandwich you choose, it will be made right in front of you, giving you the power to create an on-the-go meal that is perfect for you.

7. Sweet Treats

No meal is complete without dessert, especially when on vacation. Luckily, Pizza Ponte has you covered in terms of sweet treats. Whether you crave cannoli, tiramisu, or an espresso beverage with a nice biscotti, your sugar craving will be satisfied by the time you leave this little pizzeria.

8. Affordable and Filling

Last but not least, we know you’ll love that while this pizza is quite thick, heavily topped, and filling, it is also pretty affordable. Sure, you could get cheaper pizza off Disney property, but the theming and service wouldn’t be up to par. Besides, who wants to leave Disney Springs? We know we never do! Therefore, Pizza Ponte is where we go when we want to save money and fill up.
