We investigate the reflection of a Gaussian beam impinging upon the surface of an epsilon-near-zero (ENZ) medium. In particular, we discuss the occurrence of Goos-Hänchen and Imbert-Fedorov shifts. Our calculations reveal that spatial shifts are significantly enhanced owing to the ENZ nature of the medium, and that their value and angular position can be tuned by tuning the plasma frequency of the medium.
