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

Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "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
  • "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."

  • "The Dover Sole is always so Good. Don't know of any other Restaurants on Orlando serving this fish. Best Penne Ala Vodka too!"

  • "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."

  • "Dinner for 5 at Enzo's. They have a large menu and many specials. The appetizer antipasto is very good and you can customize it to your taste. All the main courses ordered were demolished. One minor complaint was the breading was greasy on the Ahi tuna. The stracetti, fettuccini with lobster and shrimp, the terre marie (two meats and two large shrimp) and the panzotti were all perfectly cooked and enjoyable. Deserts were tasty and the slices of chocolate cheesecake generous. Watch out for the mark up on the wine. I ordered a Modus Ruffino and paid nearly three times when I buy it for from a shop (same vintage). The waitstaff were very friendly and kept the group happy with fresh water, efficient service and without cloying attention."

  • "I heard about Enzo's on the lake about 20 years ago. It's unfortunate that it's taken me this long to find an occasion to bring my wife out there for dinner. However, the four course meal was simply outstanding. Service was impeccable... from the parking valet to the Maitres d' to the wait and buss staff everything was perfect. The chef and kitchen brigade showed originality and creativity, as well as a distinct ability to honor classic dishes."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 35th anniversary at Enzo's. It was a fabulous experience with great food, superior service and a romantic atmousfear. I highly recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We really enjoyed the food and wine and wished we'd arrived when there was still some sun to take in the incredible views. The service wasn't as good as you'd expect for the venue or the price, though. No one was rude, but they weren't very attentive or particularly friendly. For example, we waited a few minutes before being greeted at our table, were never given the waiter's name, and had to ask about the dessert specials ourselves because we saw other people eating items not on the menu. And there were a couple of times the staff yelled out to each other across the room, not exactly the most romantic of settings, which is what this restaurant is supposed to be known for."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We have been going to this place for Valentines Day for many years and its like a time war. The same everything for years. The good news is that it is still excellent for that special occasion! My only complaint was that they make you valet (which is fine) but they really need two additional valets to keep up."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Service was slow, had to stop the server too often.Service is normally very very good, noticed two other tables in our area received great service by our server"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Not enough food. I left still feeling hungry. They are stingy with the portions, it's Italian. I was also expecting a better view"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Found the restaurant via Open Table..this is a higher end Italian restaurant that is a bit off the beaten path (for tourists like us)..but it was well worth it. The food was very good, service excellent, ambience warm and welcoming."

  • "Enzo's has been consistently good for many, many years and the food and ambiance remain top notch."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "We have dined at Enzo's for over 15 years and never been disappointed. While not having an expansive menu, they seem to keep all of the bases covered. We have always enjoyed our trips to Enzo's, we hope you do to. Make a reservation, limited seating."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "I have visited several restaurants in this area, and Enzo's ranks in my top two. I cant decide between them and another restaurant. My wife loved Enzo's and it is now her favorate. She loved everything about the experience, because Enzo's is an experience. I took my wife there for her birthday and it is all she talks about now. So thank you Enzo's"
    Dined on 11/30/2013
  • "We were very disappointed by the overall experience. Based on previous reviews we were expecting very good Italian food ... instead it looked more like an "overpriced Olive Garden experience" (Bruschetta "swimming" in olive oil, bland fish ...) ... not to mention the spilled glass of wine :("
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Enzo's is consistently outstanding in all aspects. Our server noted specific requests from menu (ie food allergies) and made all of us feel very welcomed."

  • "haven't been in 10 years and it is not as good as it used to be. a bit disappointed. very loud"

  • "We ate with Enzo when he first opened and have been loyal diners ever since. Our concern about the restaurant after he passed away was unfounded. Enzo's remains our favorite Italian restaurant in Central Florida. You have to try the Bucatini."

  • "We came to the restaurant to celebrate my husband's birthday. The food was wonderful, our waiter was excellent and the overall ambience was great. Will come back again."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "You can't go wrong at this place. All the recipes are tried and true, the menu doesn't change much but that's a good thing. The gardens are beautiful. The springtime is always a good time to visit this place with prime opportunity to have a walk through the garden after dinner or before dinner for that matter."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "We love everything about this place, except the chairs. The food is fresh and creative even after 34 years. The service is attentive and has attention to detail. Please change the chairs, so we can come and dine comfortably!!!!"

  • "We took guests for dinner the day after Christmas. We had reservations and were warmly welcomed and seated immediately. The antipasto was enjoyed by both vegetarians and meat-eaters. Our pasta and fish dishes were freshly prepared, served hot and delicious. Service was friendly yet efficient. Highly recommend this place for tasty Italian."

  • "We have been going to Enzo's for 25 years. The food is outstanding, as is the atmosphere. The kitchen is incredibly consistent and we have never had a disappointing meal. For those visiting Orlando, it is a little out of the way-but well worth the trip!"

  • "Changed it up this visit and had the Dover Sole prepared table side. Incredible."

  • "The service & food was good overall. Ambience was ok. There missing some Italian music though. Everyone talks to loud which was a little annoying."

  • "Wonderful food, service and atmosphere. They prepare everything specially for you."
    Dined on 12/18/2013
  • "There is little sign of red sauce at this fine Italian restaurant. The elaborate antipasto is superb, and the "antipasto for 2" easily serves 4. Everything we have ordered on our many visits has been outstanding, but the fettuccine with lobter and shrimp and the many fish specials particularly excel. This is clearly one of the top restaurants in Central FL."

  • "It was an enjoyable evening. The food was excellent!!"
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "Along with only a few other local restaurants, the chef here knows that Carbonara is not alfredo sauce with bacon. It is expertly prepared, without cream, as it should."

  • "The meal was very good and the folks were friendly. The restaurant could stand a little make over but overall a good experience."
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "I made an online reservation for my husband's birthday. I asked for a table with a good view of the lake and was accommodated, however, it was dark out and we couldn't see the lake. The table was perfect though. Our waiter friendly, attentive, and kept our table free from used dishes and glasses. The lamb was cooked perfect for me and was delicious! My husband enjoyed his veal and our son very much enjoyed his pasta dish. The presentation of the food was very nice. After an outstanding dinner, the waiter surprised my husband (and myself) with a piece of Italian wedding cake with a birthday candle in it, as well as a plate of delicious almond and gingersnap cookies."
