PHOTOS - Pizza Ponte soft opens at Disney Springs

Pizza Ponte overview

Pizza Ponte, the newest quick service restaurant at Disney Springs, is now in soft open at The Landing.

One of four new venues opening this winter at Disney Springs, Pizza Ponte is the quick service concept serving pizza by the slice, made-to-order hot sandwiches and authentic Italian desserts.

For more about the backstory of Pizza Ponte and how the new venues are positioned within Disney Springs, read our Sneak Peek tour post.

Everything is laid out on a counter alongside an open-kitchen, where you can see all the pizza varieties on offer and make your selections.

Dining Room

Seating is available both indoors and out, and although compact, looks very elegant and airy. The large windows looking out onto The Landing are a nice touch.

The Food

If you order multiple slices, instead of on a tray they are served on a large flat piece of cardboard as seen below.

We tried a couple of different pizzas each priced at $7 and came away impressed. Very authentic, and different to anything else on offer at Disney Springs - the closest at Disney World would be Via Napoli at Epcot.

There will be obvious comparisons to the recently opened Blaze Pizza, which has proven very popular at Disney Springs. Both serve pizza, but they are very different. Pizza Ponte is by the slice, has a more substantial crust, and fewer, but perhaps more exotic toppings. We thought a slice of Pizza Ponte pizza was roughly equivalent to just under one of the whole pizzas at Blaze, although Blaze probably wins on the value of money scale with its customization and size. So which is the best? Impossible to say - everyone likes something different in pizza, but this is one you should add to your list to try on your next Disney Springs visit.

Like the pizza, most desserts are priced at $7 each and offer something very different to what you'll find elsewhere.

An official opening date has not yet been announced, but plans are to have all four of the new venues fully open in January 2018.
