Fifth time at Enzas. The quality of the food is so consistent ! Always superb. The service that night, a Thursday, was ponderous. Some server finally took pity and took our order. The service was the only thing that spoiled the experience
Good food tasty and good service in quiet ambience
Great authentic Italian great presentation, service food was excellent
Great seafood dish! Also chicken parmesan.
Had reservation and waited 45 minutes. Receptionist didn't seem to care. Food is usually very good, but this night average at best. Room we were in was very loud...couldn't hear each other. Waiter was also average at best.
Always great food and great live piano music. Enza’s is definitely in our regular rotation for date night.
Another great meal at Enza's! The food and the staff make Enza's our favorite restaurant!
As always, Enza's does an outstanding job. When ever I introduce any of my friends to your restaurant , the are very pleased with my selection.
I would highly recommend ENZA’s Italian restaurant. I love Italian food and this has been by far the best I’ve had in many years. The atmosphere is excellent. The staff are on their game.
One of the best! Great food and drinks, wait staff is wonderful. Enza checks on all her customers and we had a great time chatting with her. A must visit!
Excellent food. Always enjoyed by our guests as well. Friendly staff. Good menu and drinks.
The white rose among the red. The restaurant that stands above the rest. A place with character, quality, and charm. From the " Who's this guy?" door greeter to the "musical ambience" of the piano player to "a lip licking" splendid meal on your table. It is an experience, not just a meal.
Very nice place with a wonderful atmosphere and great service. The food was delicious. I would highly recommend Enza's to anyone for a special occasion or anytime for that matter! The waitresses are extremely friendly and had a welcome from Mrs. Enza herself. We'll be back!
I loved the food. Everyone was friendly and made sure that we had what we needed. Our food was made the way that we wanted. Great Place to Eat.
Great find on Trip Advisor. Our waiter Vincenzo was outstanding and the food was delicious. All 5 in our party were very satisfied, and very glad we made the ride from the World Golf Village. A strong recommendation from this reviewer.
Arrived at 7 for a 7:15 reservation. We went to the bar ordered a bottle of the Joel Gott Cabernet. Ordered appetizer of goat cheese bruschetta. It was very good. Bar staff was amazing. Finally was seated at our table at 7:47. Our waitress was distracted, we found out later her in-laws were in the house. I’d be distracted too. Ordered Lobster Ravioli and Seared scallops. Scallops were amazing they were fresh perfectly seared on a bed of angel hair pasta with spinach. The ravioli really didn’t have any lobster in it it was very disappointing would not order that again. Over all give them a four out of five stars.
Our meal was good. My only negative was the minestrone soup was almost all kidney beans.
Food and service were very good. I had one of the chicken dishes which I enjoyed. I would go back again to try other dishes.
Once again another amazing experience at Enzas solely because of our server Stephanie! This is the best Italian restaurant in Jacksonville bar not and I have been at multitudes of Italian restaurants claiming they’re the finest. This particular restaurant aligns itself more with restaurants like Federal Hill in Providence in the north end of Boston and can be compared to some of the greater eateries in Little Italy in New York City. The high-quality food is simply amazing and the service was equally as great. For anybody wanting a unique dining experience with high-quality, high service and a great atmosphere you must get to Enzas restaurant in Mandrin!!!
The greeter Wayne, sets the tone for the entire evening. Which was fabulous for my girlfriend.and I.
The owner, Enzo, like in most high restaurants visited every table to ensure that the meal and service was absolutely exceptional beyond measure. Great night, great date night and highly recommend this fabulous restaurant!!!
We had a reservation for 7:15, we waited about 5 minutes for our table to be prepped before being seated.
Our server, Vinny stopped by our table to introduce himself and let us know he’d be right with us. About 5 minutes later Vinny returned to take our drink orders and tell us about the dinner specials. It was at least 10 minutes before our drinks arrived - 3 ordered wine and 3 ordered beer. We had to ask for glasses for the beer, which took another 7-8 minutes and then we were given wine glasses instead of chilled beer glasses as we had been told. We finally got a single basket of bread and placed our appetizer and dinner orders...then Vinny disappeared.
Our appetizers we delivered and we all needed drink refills - it took at least 15 minutes before the second round of drinks were delivered.
Our entrees were finally delivered and we had to ask for a second basket of bread...we were told that our server would have to see if there was any ready in the kitchen. The basket of bread was delivered as we were finishing our meals.
The evening was not quite what we were hoping for but with Enza’s great reputation I’m sure we’ll give it another try...but not for a while.
Although our waitress told us they were short on staff the evening of our visit, my wife and I did not have to wait an inordinate amout of time for service. The staff came together to make this a great experience in dining. Excellent food! An enjoyable dining experience!
We had a wonderful time. We went there is see if we wanted to host our wedding rehearsal dinner here. And yes we do. We will be calling this week to make the reservation
Excellent. Change nothing. Service and dining experience were spectacular.
We were greeted warmly and sincerely. Our service was great!!! And the food was fabulous. I would recommend Enza’s to anyone who appreciates fine Italian cuisine.
The food and service is always outstanding!!
A very friendly and attentive staff made every menu decision easier and worthwhile. My date's Fettuccine was rich and tasty. My salmon was well prepared and set off nicely by the vegetables. When I goofed and ordered the wrong cocktail, our server replaced it immediately with no fuss. Oh and ENZA herself visits every table personally for a cordial hello and feedback.
Enza's is a great neighborhood Italian place. The food is excellent and the owner (I'm assuming--he's an elderly Italian gentleman) makes his way around the restaurant periodically asking if everything is OK.
The food is very good--typical Italian-fare. This is an excellent place for pasta and dishes like Chicken Marsala. Not ideal if you're looking for steak, but this isn't a steakhouse. The bread is good, and the desserts outstanding! The wine--we tried both Malbec and Syrah--was OK, but not spectacular.
With respect to service, the waiters/waitresses are friendly enough, though quite slow. If you don't mind, especially if you're looking for authentic Italian service, it's fine, though it does lean a little on the odd side. 10 minutes to bring us bread is not normal, even in European cafes. They did the job, but certainly not stellar service here.
Overall, I would definitely recommend if you're looking for good Italian food, and we've been twice. We'd come back again just for the caramel cheesecake!
We Had a wonderful time. The food was excellent! We especially liked the escargot as an appetizer! Our service was very good and the ambience was exceptional. We been there before and really enjoyed our meal there and were happy to return for this special day.
Our initial table they wanted to seat us at was right at the kitchen door with lots of traffic. There were 7 open tables that could of been used. I asked if we could move and they did us to a better location. Yes, we did have a reservation. Food was just OK that evening. This was our third time there.
The food was delicious, appetizer, garlic bread, salad and entree. Service was good. Made a reservation for the day before Valentine's Day and was seated at a table in the middle of the room and near the kitchen which I thought they shouldn't even have a table there. The decor seems a little dated or old school but was clean and well kept.
Great food with a complimentary dessert for our special occasion
We have been going to Enza's as a family and or couple since she opened her own place. Love the food. Love Enza. Very happy for her that she is a real success...A long way from waitressing in her parents restaurant as a teenager...We have retired and moved to St augustine, but still come up and our grown daughter and family also continues to go to Enza's.
Food was very good, and wait staff was very nice. Noise level was a little high, and the furniture was okay, some tables actually had folding chairs. Food was good, all be it a bit expensive for what it was.
Professional service with great Italian fare. Highly recommend for a date night or any special occasion.
Not quite the superior standards I am used to at Enzas. At first they seated us(with reservations) in a party room where the noise level was unnacceptable. We were going to leave but they found us a booth in another room. Much better. Wine was excellent as was the mozzarella friti. the Veal Piccata and Shrimp a la Enza was very good but not quite the excellent veal parmesan and the lobster stuffed shrimp we had previously which really were superb. The piano player is both very good and very nice.
The Eggplant Parmesan was not to Enza’s normal standards, which made the evening & meal less than satisfying.
Being from an Italian family (Bianco), I was always looking for an Italian restaurant with food that approached my Grandmothers. Until now, I had all, but given up. So it was not only a surprise, but a pleasure to find and enjoy a home cooked Italian meal at your restaurant.
We love Enzas! Great food and the owners are always so personable! You won’t be sorry!
Enza's is one of my favorite places to go eat. Well worth the 35 minute drive. Amazing Italian food. Reservations are recommended on the weekend.
