Diner Reviews
  • "Enza's is a large restaurant with a small restaurant ambiance because it is made up of 3 small rooms. The night we ate it was exceedingly slow which they attributed to 3 large parties. If they had told us this when we arrived, we would have adjusted our expectations but, rather, they used this as an excuse as we were leaving as to why the dinner took twice as long as usual. This is the second time and last time we will have such an experience here."

  • "Enza's pasta cannot be beat....any sauce or topping. My husband and a friend had the pork ossobucco (sorry, not sure how to spell it), with the pasta fazul (sp?) soup. Both were outstanding. Guests are always pleasantly greeted and seated and the staff is friendly. Great neighborhood gathering place!"

  • "We frequent Enza's weekly and can't get enough of the great food, service and entertainment. We always eat in the bar area because the energy and fun is the place to be. Coming down here from Chicago you miss these kinds of places an if you come from an Italian family you will love the feeling of those wonderful memories. Hats off to Enza for bringing such a great Italian restaurant to Jacksonville!!!"

  • "I have never tasted such delicious Italian food served from a restaurant in my life. The service was quick and wonderful. We had a salad called Enza's Salad that was off the hook !! YUUMMMY.... There were sooo many delicious items listed on the Menu I couldn't begin to tell you about them all. The atmosphere was beautiful. Please do your loved one a favor and take him or her out to this wonder restaurant for an outstanding dinner tonight."

  • "What a fabulous dining experience. Our waiter, Gerard, was attentive but not intrusive. He was kind and patient with my 90 year old uncle. The food was fabulous. A pianist was tickling the ivories nearby providing gentle background music. We enjoyed a wonderful evening. SAI"

  • "Been to Enza's several times and enjoyed it. This time a Saturday night, the restaurant was crowded with several large birthday parties. The noise level, including the piano singer prevented conversation at our table in the bar section. The food, although plentiful, was not up to par. My mussels in red sauce other than spicy had little taste. Our daughter's Enza's pasta was supposed to be moderately spicy was so over spiced that it was not edible. The waitress was very attentive and went overboard to serve our party of six. Did enjoy the piano singer when the noise level subsided. We will return, but will not sit in the bar area and will be clearer on the level of spicing."

  • "Enza's is most definitely our favorite place to spend our nights out, whether we go it alone or we join a group of friends. The atmosphere is wonderful - we love sitting in the bar area where we can listen to piano and jazz music and talk with our favorite bartenders. The staff is very friendly and the food is wonderful."

  • "Once again my wife , son and his friend and I had another enjoyable dinner at Enza's. The quality of the food, reasonable prices and ambiance make this a very popular local favorite of ours. I bring friends there as often as I can to experience Enza's and Tina is one of our favorite waitresses as she is very attentive to our needs and very friendly. The pork Osso Buco I had over a bed of risotto was fabulous. Keep up the good work."

  • "Senza's food is consistently superb and amazing each and every visit to this restaurant. Every time I go I always have the same thing on the menu, I have the Chicken Caneellonni with the tomato dill cream sauce. You MUST try try this dish, it is phenomenal! Best choice for your first course is to go with the Enza Salad, it is out of this world. Just a word to the wise, if you have a sweet tooth, Enza's makes THE BEST banana cream pie, and it sells out quickly, generally you need to call a day ahead of you reservation to hold yup a slice, but trust me, it's worth it. Enza's is by far one of my favorite restaurants in the city."

  • "I ordered the Veggie Combo. I was asked if I wanted butter, olive oil, or steamed. I chose steamed. I did receive all the vegetables listed under the Veggie Combo on the menu. I must be to used to my own home cooking because I really did expect fresh garlic, fresh oregano, maybe some ground cumin, a pinch of ground cloves, cracked black pepper, and SALT. There was just NO FLAVOR! I'm sorry but vegan does NOT mean BLAND! I didn't send the Veggie Combo back because I didn't want to come off as pretentious and fussy on my first date, so I smiled and chewed."

  • "Enzas is by far the best restaurant in Jacksonville hands down. The food and service are beyond any comparison in the entire area. Just wish they also served lunch."

  • "We love Enza's. We have dined there twice and both times we sat in a booth in the bar area which is quite attractive with floor to ceiling dark, raised wood panels with a baby piano set into a corner area and soft chandelier lighting. On the two weekend nights that we dined, soft jazz piano music created a relaxed, enjoyable atmosphere. The service was very good. The food was excellent. We had the house Cabernet which complemented our meal quite nicely. The prices are reasonable and the servings are large. We did not have an appetizer and ended up taking home leftovers. This restaurant has it all over the big chain Italian restaurants."

  • "Enzas is a nice place to dine. When you make a reservation you are seated right away even if you arrive a little early. The food was execellant I had canneloni and it was superb. With the live music it just sets the atmosphere Enzas. The only issue I had was the service was a little slow I seen the people around us being served long before us and we sat down about the same time so I'm thinking our server was our issue. She was very kind to us. Overall I love Enzas I would recommend you to try it, its what an Italian restaurant should be."

Food is great and service is friendly. I absolutely love the greeter at the front door & how he goes thru the restaurant welcoming diners. Vera gemma!"

My friend and I went there early and were greeted by a gentleman in an awesome electric blue suit with the shoes to match. from that first interaction to being thanked and wished well on our exit, there truly is no other place like Enza's. We have been going there for a couple years now and will continue to do so."

  • "The eggplant parmesan was cold, the waiter had to be called over as he was not paying attention that I had moved the dish to the side of the table, had to ask for bread.................never asked if we wanted another glass of wine till he presented the check. I am willing to try again and will try the chicken marsala next time but in the bar area with the piano. Hopefully with a different watier."

  • "We consider Enza's our "go to" place for special occasions. Unfortunately our latest experience was not a good one. The food was superb as always. We were seated at a very small table that our waitress informed us was added due to the high volume of Valentine's weekend. This table was shoved up against a wall right on top of the table behind us. I was bumping elbows with the gentleman sitting behind me. This was also a high traffic area. Every server and bus person had to walk by us often bumping into us and holding trays of food over our heads to get by. My wife and I were very disappointed in this experience and in the future will think twice before making reservations here again"
