A word from Enzo's on the Lake
Enzo's on the Lake is the perfect place for a congenial evening of cocktails, fine food and wine, lavish desserts and very special hospitality. Whether you are entertaining for business or pleasure, having a birthday celebration or just a romantic dinner for two, we will do our best to keep you satisfied. In 1980, Enzo's on the Lake opened as a lovely secluded lakefront restaurant, built in the style of an Italian villa. The restaurant is dedicated to the idea of simple yet sophisticated cuisine. The freshest fish, meats, fruits and vegetables that can be obtained are woven into a menu that emphasizes a unique culinary heritage and diversity. An extravagant antipasto bar welcomes you to the excitement of the dining room overlooking the lake. There is a full service european style bar, private dining areas for meetings and parties and the lakeside gardens where many weddings concerts and gatherings take place. We look forward to serving you!Continued

    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "I've driven by Enzo's hundreds of times and finally made a reservation for dinner. It was Saturday night and every table was filled so the noise level was pretty high. The food was good though the steaks were slightly underdone. The service was fine and food came in appropriate intervals. Our waitress kept our wine glasses filled and it was overall a very good experience. We will come back again for a special occasion - we did spend quite a bit of money. One bottle of wine, two apps, two entrees, and two desserts was approximately $250.00."

  • "Enzo's is my husband's special occasion restaurant, so I booked Saturday evening to celebrate Father's Day. Terrific choice as the seafood was fresh and expertly prepared--delicious sauces enhanced the fish, rather than overpower the delicate flavors. Service was top-notch, as always. It was wonderful to see so many families enjoying Enzo's."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "I couldn't have picked a better spot for to celebrate our 3 year anniversary. My husband and I have traveled all over Italy and Enzo's transported us back to a small trattoria you might happen upon in Tuscany. The food, the staff, the wine, everything was perfection!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Just short and sweet...for 30 years this is "just the best" all around !!!"
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "We took our son to Enzo's and he was impressed with the attention we received and dinner he ordered. We always talk about the dinner...do not miss the bar and the incredible conversation and service you get there also."

  • "This has been a long time favorite for me and my husband. We had our rehearsal wedding party at this restaurant 18 years ago and continue to come back to celebrate all of our special occasions! We have never had a bad meal, the food is wonderful and the service is great.....quaint little bar and the view is spectacular! All around outstanding!"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Food is rather greasy and heavy, service is attentive and competent. We go there for the ambiance. The garden is lovely, although the chairs there are falling apart. The view of the lake is lovely. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Enzo's has the whole package! From the moment you walk in the door to the time you leave, you are well taken care of and plied with food that has subtle and wonderful depth and complexity of flavors! We have never had a dish that was not delicious and creative. My partner "hates" eggplant an zucchini, but she ate her share of these from the antipasto! The setting is also surprising; when you pull off of the busy road and drive back to the restaurant you are walking into a small slice of old Florida, with tropical plants deck and the lovely lake. Perfect for an after dinner stroll! We will return. Thanks!"

  • "I always take my visitors here to show them "this is Central Florida". The view is great, the food is very good and it always makes them feel special."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "Enzo's on the Lake is by far and away, our overall top pick for the best restaurant in all of Central Florida. The staff is so professional (knowledgeable, polite and courteous). Most staff members have been there for years. The food is incredible. You literally want to savor every bite of every course as long as possible; it is that good! Beautiful gardens and lake view complete the experience. "
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "Excellent all the way around. Celebrated my 1st amd several successive anniversaries here, including my most recent 20th. They have never dissapointed."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "Great cozy bar with potent cocktails. Friendly,expert staff, particularly long time servers Susan and Orazio. Proprietress Jo Ann Perlini an expert hostess. Scenic lakefront setting. Succulent antipasto bar with aged reggiano, salami, seafood salads and sautéed veggies. Best pastas in Florida. Try the linguine with red clam sauce, penne ala vodka, bucatini ala Enzo or spaghetti carbonara. Fabulous Dover sole. Well paired wine list, Italian and California. Try the Parducci True Grit petit sirah. As Orlando area restaurants go - None better, damn few as good!"

  • "Food was delicious, full of flavor. Waiter and staff were delightful and attentive. New favorite place. "
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "Food? Excellent! Wine selection? Excellent! Ambiance and location? A gem in the most unsuspecting place. Staff? Friendly and very attentive. Will we go back? Yes, again and again."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "The food is totally incredible and the service is fabulous. The tables are a little jammed in together that you really can't have a private conversation without everyone hearing you. If you want in the main dining room which gives you the scenic view, you have to request it with your reservation as well as remind the hostess."
    Dined on 5/10/2014

  • "We found this restaurant on OpenTable while staying in Orlando for a meeting. I wanted to take my wife out to dinner away from the "conventioneer" experience, and this restuarant, although a 40 minute drive from Disney, was well worth the time and travel! The atmosphere was cozy, quant and inviting. The waiter, who suggested a delightful Valpolicella/Amarone, encouraged us to take our wine out to the covered dock for sunset and waited until we returned to take our order. We enjoyed a wonderful antipasto (a house specialty), linguini with white clam sauce, Gorgonzola filet with a side of angel hair pasta and limoncello for dessert. Recalling the evening brings back each delicious taste. If you have the time, create your own memory here!"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Enjoy Enzo's whether special occasions, just the two of us, or a consistantly good restaurant to take out of towners. You will always feel welcomed to have good food, great wine, excellent service, for the time spent here from start to finish."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Dinner was better than great and Ernesto our server is fabulous. I always love Enzo's for any reason."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "The atmosphere is quaint, like an old house renovated into a nice cozy restuarant. The owner, who doubles as the greeter, is very kind and truly interested in your experience. The waitress was courteous yet engaging and funny. The view of the lake is beautiful (although I want to come back at sunset when it's not cloudy). The food was just plentiful enough to satisfy your hunger and was very delicious. The cost was commensurate to the quality of the food served. I would absolutely return and also highly recommend this restaurant to anyone."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "They never disappoint. We had a group of five and everyone loved their food and drink. We'll be back."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "We've been going to Enzo's for over 30 years. It is our favorite restaurant. The food is awesome and the service is even better. If it were closer to where we live, we'd go once a week."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "What a charming restaurant. The staff was courteous and professional and the food experience was outstanding. My spare ribs were falling off the bone tender and infused with flavor. My wife's tenderloin was perfectly done and delicious, one of the best I've tasted (she gave me a bite) here in Orlando. I didn't have the antipasto bar but it looked wonderful and gives me an excuse to go back very soon to try."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "The specials are always interesting. Cozze Mussels are my favorite as is the house salad! The staff is extraordinary."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "I can't believe it's taken me so long to visit Enzo's! I will most definitely be back. Service was exceptional. Next time I hope to get a seat by the window to watch the sun set."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "We took some friends to Enzo's to celebrate a transition in their life - what a perfect night. The food was perfect (osso bucco, grouper and red snapper) and prepared in such an interesting manner. The Zuccotto dessert is my favorite - loved it!"
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "The staff were attentive and creative in dealing with several little problems that popped up. They couldn't do enough for us to make it up to us and went above and beyond. We brought a sense of humor and it made for a wonderful night. The food was terrific, too!"
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "Enzo's continues to serve wonderful Roman food, just as it has for 30-some years. It is a perfect place for a special occasion that does not require a soft, romantic atmosphere. Hey! It is classic Roman. What do you want? Enzo steaks are equal to the finest steak specialty houses. The wine list is not as complete as some restaurants, but what is there is excellent."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Relaxing, delicious and will be back again!! A romantic escape and amazing food!"

  • "Hadn't eaten at Enzo's in probably 15 years, but for my 75th birthday wanted to go to a special place. Food and service as good as I remember and the sunset after a stormy day was beautiful."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "The Dover Sole is always so Good. Don't know of any other Restaurants on Orlando serving this fish. Best Penne Ala Vodka too!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Went to Enzo's for years...on expense report.! After I retired I missed them for a couple years but on my return with fellow retirees and business partners, it's the same Enzo's! They came in from New Jersy and Tampa becuase they knew it would be great food and a fun time. The food was wonderful, I had my traditional Dover Sole while friends had other fish and pasta. The shrimp/lobster app was new to us but wonderful!! Service has also been great I think the entire staff has been there for many years! Not cheap, but top quality comes at a price. Certainly recommend and will be returning soon."
