We have been to this restaurant many times. We went to dinner there on Monday. The salads (both Enza's and Caesar) were terrible. The lettuce was old and wilted with way too much dressing. Maybe just an off night...?

It didn’t appear to be crowded in the restaurant, yet it took forever to get our food. I had angel hair with chicken and the chicken was very dry. Our waiter was nice, but again, everything seemed to take forever. I really enjoy Enza’s and this one sub par experience won’t keep me from coming back.

We made reservations for a celebration four days prior. We were seated in a nearly empty room, right between the service station and bathrooms. We asked to move away from that non ideal area since about 7 other tables were empty. They said the only other available table was next to a party of 10. We opted for that table since I really didn’t want to be next to the service station/bathrooms. That table next to us, though, had 3 (seriously) babies. One was screaming the entire time. The people kept sitting right in front of our booth because everyone was just congregating around the babies. I had to keep moving my purse because they were constantly bumping into us. We actually had to ask them not to sit at our booth since they overflowed into our table. Four of the alternate tables I had pointed out earlier to the waiter were supposedly reserved. However, we were there from 5:50 until 6:50. Nobody ever sat at those tables. It will be a fluke if I ever go back. Which is a shame because the food was really good. And the server was very nice. The accommodations are less than amicable. My husband raved about this place... I had never been. He was so disappointed that our date night was such a flop (dinner wise). We drove almost an hour for this place. Time to stick with 386 In palm coast!

As always Stephanie did an outstanding job attending to our needs and requests. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was outstanding. The only downside is that some of the tables are very close together and a birthday celebration at the next table at one point intruded on our space.

This place is terrible. You make a reservation 3 days before and they still seat you outside on the sidewalk next to seats for smokers. I asked to wait longer for a seat inside and was told they were full. Mind you i am 5 months pregnant and sat next to smokers all night. The salad was just iceberg and shredded carrot. The baked ziti was just a huge block of cheese and no sauce. My husbands penne vodka with chicken was dry. I would never go back to be treated this way and have a bad meal.

To our valued customers, if you reserve an outside table on Open Table like this person did we cannot guarantee that you will be able to get an inside table once you arrive. (and we don’t seat anyone on the sidewalk) And if there’s a problem with your dinner, please tell your server so we can correct the issue on site, because we will do our best to do so, however it’s quite difficult to do so a few days later.

Enza’s is a great neighborhood Italian restaurant. We go there quite often but the consistency of food quality fluctuates. The calamari was soggy and greasy. The cocktail did not appear to be the brand ordered and amount seemed less than normal. Service was very good and the host and the door is very nice.

We had another wonderful experience at Enza's Italian Restaurant. The service is always fantastic! Wayne at the front is a treasure. Ida is so attentive and sweet. Franco is a real charmer. Brian is so very talented but humble. And Enza. She is simply a magical lady.

The food! We chose the specials on this visit. Pork Osso Bucco. OMG. The sauce and veggies were wonderful. I took my husbands leftovers to work for lunch. My co-worker came into my office and told me it smelled fantastic! I told him it tasted fantastic too, but I didn't offer him any :). I ordered the most tender Scallops. Wow. Again, the sauce...delicious. The Shrimp Bisque was very tasty too. We highly recommend these choices. Anything you choose will be great.

Our favorite Italian restaurant in all of the greater Jacksonville area!! Wish we could eat here much more frequently; but, we live at the beach. After paying a hospital visit to a family member in Orange Park, this was such a nice way to finish the evening. We always enjoy the Mama’s salad, which did not disappoint! Also had the pasta Fagiole soup. Very good. The chicken Marsala was excellent, as always! Nice pianist/vocalist in the adjacent bar area. Sure wish we lived closer!!

My husband and I had an amazing meal here tonight. The food and service were top notch. The decor is a bit dated but that is a small thing compared to the amazing food. Pro tip: take a the waitress’s recommendation. She didn’t steer us wrong. Everything was delicious, from appetizer to dessert!

Party of 6 for a milestone anniversary. For a less noisy experience, we asked for seating in the banquet room.

We ordered chicken, pasta, seafood and entree salad dishes. Everything was cooked perfectly. A couple of the pasta dishes though were cold. The server quickly replaced them with hot portions.

The bread and dipping oil is a winner.

Not sure why they still don't add tomato to their salads. If you want tomato, you need to ask for it when placing your order.

Truly a GEM!
Enza’s is our favorite restaurant. We’ve been coming here since 2007. From reservation to Wayne’s farewell, it is superb!
Amanda & Stephanie serve you like you are one of their family members with mouthwatering offerings from Enza & Mike Huff. Tonight, we enjoyed their meatball appetizer followed by Grouper Elliana & the Short Ribs Special, while Carl was playing the piano.
Enza holds a secret ingredient with a combination of love served in her restaurant family & food.

Our friends recommended Enza for our get together. The place is fantastic! Reservations highly recommenced for Friday n Saturday evening anyway. Full bar w 2 friendly bartenders and efficient service. Great piano player that can be heard throughout the restaurant. Waitress was great but a little difficult to understand. She was very friendly and efficient and made sure we didn’t go without anything. The food was quite tasty and portions were adequate. Will definitely keep this one on the radar and make it a regular for date night.

Though service was somewhat slow, the food was good. Ambiance was scored low because our table was not well lit (could not see food well) and the piano playing in the bar area was still loud. Have been there before, and will go back, must have been an off night.

We invitied a couple celebrating a birthday to join us at your restaurant. Jacob was our server. Over all our service was not very good. The food was not a good as we have had previously and the bar area was more noisy than usual. We could not enjoy the piano player. My bill had the wine from the other couple. We had a difficult time just trying to have a conversation.
