Seated on time,service was very slow1:45 start to finish. Server did not know the menu as well as they have before. I ordered Veal Saltimbocca and was told after it was delivered it did not come with a side of pasta.....it always has. Server implied my choice was spinach or pasta, really? We have always enjoyed the place but this time was very disappointing

We have been going to Enzas's for years and years now. It has always been our favorite Italian restaurant.
It has always been very clean. All of the staff is very very friendly and extremely helpful. The musician on the piano have a simply natural talent. The chef’s all leave the kitchen to come out and say hello to us every time we are ther.

We eat here about once every 4 to 6 weeks. Always get the veal parmigiana, best in town. EXCEPT tonight. Meat was dry and had very little cheese on top. Just wasn't your night. We'll be back.

We showed up a few minutes early for our 5:30 reservation. The hostesses kept debating on where to seat us since the waitress scheduled for our table had not arrived yet. They tried to seat us somewhere else but the table had not been set. They ended up seating us at a table and told us our waitress hasn't shown up yet but would eventually be there.

In the meantime, we waited 15 minutes for our waitress to arrive, eventually showing up around 5:35. I know we were early for our reservation but I'm not sure why they would have assigned a waitress to our table knowing they would not arrive until right when our reservation began. In the meantime while we were waiting, I overheard another waitress (probably aware we were sitting there for a while) asking the hostesses who had our table and they explained the situation.

Overall, I think the restaurant could have handled the situation better - they could have assigned another waitress to our table or waited to get the other table set up. Being told our waitress hasn't shown up yet was kind of awkward, especially knowing the dinner rush had not arrived yet and there was other wait staff who could have taken our table.

Whenever I am visiting Jacksonville, my trip isn't complete without a meal at Enza's. The entire experience is excellent and I especially like the quirky doorman; dressed in period attire.

I live in midtown Manhattan...so have lots of opportunities to eat great Italian. I can honestly say that Enza's is as good as any food I get when I'm home. Who would believe you would find such a terrific restaurant in Jacksonville! Highly recommended!

Understandably The kitchen was a little bit behind because of 2 large parties. However I was actually really impressed by our server acknowledging it. Keeping us informed and making sure that we knew he was aware. Kitchens get busy, but server awareness really can make time much less of an issue. Thank you !

Had reservations for Saturday night with friends, we got seated promptly. I ordered the meatball appetizer ,it was absolutely delicious and enough for all four of us. My wife ordered the fettuccine Alfredo with chicken , the sauce as just right not too over powering. I ordered the lasagna which was very good. Our friends ordered the veal parm, all servings were large and could have been enough to feed two. We enjoyed the piano bar. The only complaint I had was that the restaurant was very noisy making it hard to talk. We definitely will come back and try the many Italian dishes on the menu.

Amazing restaurant in one of the best Italian restaurants in Jacksonville. I have lived in the Northeast and have dined in the north end of Boston, Federal Hill in Providence as well as little Italy in New York in this restaurant would fit right into these neighborhoods… If you seek an amazing meal along with spectacular service I suggest you visit and make ends this restaurant a stop on your culinary list ... Wayne, your host, as you enter this restaurant sets the stage for an amazing evening whether it’s just out for dinner, date, casual or business dining. Stephanie, our server, is simply one of the best in the business when it comes to customer service and satisfaction along with an amazing skill set and her culinary portfolio...Simply an amazing night in an amazing place with an amazing meal and service and sensational music!!! I must stop if you’re looking for an outstanding an excellent dining experience!!!!!

Our waitress Leeza was amazing! It was our first time and she explained the wonderful menu and that they can make anything. The food was incredible! Chef Enza even came out to make sure we enjoyed the food. She’s a Sicilian chef who clearly loves to cook and make people happy. We’ve found our new favorite place!

This is the best authentic Italian food I have tasted in a long time. The escargot is off the chain. It's not on the menu so if you want the best around , Please ask for it. We had a party of 4 and everyone enjoyed their meals tremendously. I will definitely eat there when ever I'm in the area.
