Everything about Enza's is good! The food, the atmosphere, the staff - all great!! We really enjoyed having the live piano music playing in the background. Would not only recommend to a friend - we are already planning to go back and to take some with us!

We ordered a calamari fritti appetizer and chicken alla enza and grouper elliana. Half of the calamari were good and half had a crunch to them suggesting overcooking. The chicken enter was good, but not memorable. The grouper entree was good, but the portion was large and the sauce was mildly seasoned. Since it was a birthday celebration they provided a complimentary dessert of tiramisu, which was excellent. The service was good, but water glasses were not refilled until empty. Would go back, but order different food. Liked the atmosphere and piano entertainment.

The service and ambiance with a live piano player made our Friday evening an enjoyable experience. Our appetizers, bread and salads were delivered in a timely manner and were a tasty start to our meal. After hearing about the specials, our questions were answered politely and with credible recommendations to allow us to fully experience our dinners. Our dishes were served in a timely fashion and the request for additional marinara sauce was greeted with a smile and a quick positive response. iMy wife is gluten-free and they had several options for her. The Gluten-free ravioli was amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the owner even came to our table to ask about our evening.

It was so nice. The piano music very nice, not overbearing. The server was attentive and the food was excellent. It was my birthday and the waiter presented me with tiramasu on a plate decorated in chocolate sauce that said Happy Birthday and decorative balloons also drawn on the plate. It was an excellent evening! The owner came by to make sure we were taken care of, very nice!

What a terrific little place. Best to make reservations, people were out the door backed up waiting to get in and they only have a very small waiting area, 3-4 people tops. Our table was ready for us at our reservation time via Opentable. Seating was very fast and we had water, napkins and menus in just moments. Our waiter was a few minutes getting to our table, but they were very busy and no one was lagging around. Drinks were excellent, Our appetizer was the Bruschetta, the wife had the chicken and I tried the roasted lamb. Both were delicious and plenty was there. With a bottle of wine our meal came in under $150.00 for a couple. Very reasonable. This little place is a jewel to come to, we will be back.

Enza came out of the kitchen and talked to us for a few minutes. She is a lovely Italian women and her gesture meant alot to us. She told us that if we have special requests, to call ahead and let her know and she will do what she can to fulfill tge requests....that was VERY APPRECIATED!

Enza's was a great Italian restaurant. The atmosphere was of a local family owned restaurant. Great food and good service. They take reservations. We had the lazangna the chicken parmesan and the garlic shrimp with angel hair pasta. Every one enjoyed their food. The portions were large and came with soup or salad and garlic bread. I will go here again when I'm in town.

My wife and I rarely treat ourselves to a nice dinner. Dane our waiter was very helpful in guiding us through the menu. When my wife’s dinner came out incorrect the chef/owner took it and prepared the entrée her self. The food was delicious. we enjoyed a wonderful evening meal.

We've been in search of an authentic Italian Restaurant since we moved to the area over two years ago and we've finally found it! We'll be regulars at Enza's from now on.... good food, excellent service and great atmosphere.

Our first experience though we have lived close by for five years. How did we miss such a fine treasure?
A busy Friday night but we were seated at our exact reservation time. I had forgotten how much I love Italian bread with olive oil and herbs...with a little Parmesan added. It just continued to get better. We both had two glasses of excellent house Cabernet S. which was lovely. We shall return.

The staff was friendly. But the service was very very slow. The dinner salad was lettuce only with a little bit of cheese. My wife had a chicken and spinach dish that was “marginal “. I had chicken marsala and it was very average. The garlic bread was very average as well. I don’t think we will be going back based on the slow service and the quality of the food. But the staff was very friendly and very polite.

We arrived on a Thursday evening at 7pm for family dinner. 6 adults one child who was 3. It took forever for the waitress to get out drink order and us get our drinks (nothing from the bar). We then placed our dinner orders. Literally 2 hours later, we received our meals. There’s no reason for it to take even 30 minutes for meals to be prepared and if so, there should be an explanation of the delay should be addressed. Once we got our food...it was merely satisfactory, definitely nothing like the other two times I’ve visit. To say the least, I was very dis-satisfied with my visit.

We've enjoyed watching this family-owned neighborhood gem grow over the years, from its old location where the Whole Foods is now, with checked tablecloths and plastic grapes as decor, to its newer, elegant space that has expanded up to three dining rooms. The addition of a cocktail menu, live music, and at last a vegan dessert (lemon sorbet) have been wonderful improvements, but the quality of the food and service has remained outstanding through all the changes.
