Patina restaurants in Disney Springs


The Patina Restaurant Group, a luxurious catering company, offers you the opportunity to work for 12 to 15 months in one of their new restaurants in Disney Springs.

Patina Restaurant Group counts more than 60 locations in restaurants and performing arts center across the United States. 


Being very successful with their restaurants on Walt Disney World® at EPCOT park, the Patina Group opened 3 restaurants to share Italian culture and tasteful cuisine to Disney Springs guests


Maria & Enzo's is an elegant Italian trattoria set in a stylish airline terminal built in the 1930's where you can find authentic food inspired by Sicilian cuisine (pasta, fresh fish and rare italian wines). 

Enzo's Hideway, located in a storied rum runner tunnel under Maria & Enzo's restaurant, is a speakeasy that pours Prohibition-era cocktails and serves hearty Roman-style dishes (handmade pasta, fresh fish, Salumi e Formaggi). 


Pizza Ponte is the perfect place for a quick bite in the morning, afternoon or late night. Pizza Ponte will provide an assortment of house-baked sweet-and-savory Italian pastries and handmade sandwiches from sun up until sun down as well as Pizza al Taglio.
