Enza’s never disappoints! We had the veal which is always excellent along with every other dish we have eaten there, The Enza’s salad is a must as well as a side order of pasta with carbonara sauce.

Service was fair for a busy evening. The waiter done his best. Food was fair at best. Supposed to be a true Italian restaurant however Olive Garden would have been a better choice.

We had the 8oz meatball and escargot for appetizers,, both AMAZING. Soup and salads were on point (Caesar salad, house salad w ranch and chicken noodle soup). The main courses consisted of veal Marsala (which was a little on the sweet side) and the special which was lobster rigatoni in a sherry sauce (amazing!). Overall the dinner was a great time had by all!

We have been here before & the food & service was always excellent. I don’t know what was going on when we were there Sunday night but the service in the bar was very slow . Our waitress was terrible, she never asked if we wanted additional drinks after we finished our drinks from the bar. The owner stopped by to see how we were doing & we told him we were still waiting for our dinner which was taking a very long time. We were told it would be 5 minutes. It was about 15 minutes after that when we received our dinner & it wasn’t what I ordered. By the time she brought out the correct pasta for my dinner we were almost done with the rest of our dinner. She never checked on us to Se if we needed anything or if everything was ok. We just asked for our check, paid & left. I hope this was a one time thing because we usually love this place & their service is usually very good.

The food here is dependably good. Unfortunately, the service is not so dependable. About 50% of the time it affects the overall experience. Our last visit, we went on a Sunday evening. Had a 6 pm reservation. Our water came in about 10 minutes, drinks about 10 minutes after that. We did not order an appetizer, and it was 40 minutes before our salad arrived. I had to go to the bar to get a second glass of wine because waiter sightings were scarce. Dinner came in about an hour. Probably the best way to go is to order takeout.

This was our first time at Enza’s and we were very impressed. The food was delicious. I had the chicken parmigiana and it truly was very juicy as they proclaim. We will definitely be back.

I wish the experience was better. The wait for our dinner was so terribly long.
The first course was terrible. The main meal and desert was very good.
It would have been nice to have been comped for a drink or desert due to the excessive wait, but we weren’t.

The food was very good, except that the escargot appetizer was mostly mushrooms. We ate in a booth in the bar because they have an excellent piano player.

My wife andI really enjoy the piano music, so we always request table 21, and it was waiting for us when we arrived. I beleive our server was Amamda, and she did a very good job for us. The serving quantity and quality was excellent and wasdelivered as orderded. With the piano playing and a large group seated at the middle table, the noise level made conversation somewhat difficult.

Overall, we had an enjoyable experience.

My friend and I saw an ad on Facebook for the lobster and shrimp rigatoni special so we decided to come and try it. It definitely did not disappoint - it was so good! We both purposefully ate half so that we could take the rest home so we could enjoy it again later! It’s been a really long time since I’ve been to Enza’s but I will definitely be coming more often now.

This is simply the finest Italian restaurant in Jacksonville! I too my 89 year old mother to dinner and she had the Veal Milanese. I had the Veal Parmigiana. We also had salads and cocktails. The food is simply delicious. Service is attentive and thoughtful. I absolutely love this family owned restaurant. If you are looking for Italian food in Jacksonville make sure you check out Enza's.

I haad a delicious nottle of Amarone for a reasonable price and calamari fritti for an appetizer. The calamari was tender and the sauce was rich and balanced. For main course, I had veal piccata with choice of soup or salad. I slected the pasta fagioli - nicely prepared, good flavor, perfect portion, the veal - so tender, nice lemon sauce with linguine aglio olio. It was delightful. My companion had lobster ravioli. She let me taste a small bite of one - i see why it was small. so good. Dessert was a beautiful and tasty tiramisu

We always enjoy our dining experience at Enza's and this visit was one of the best yet. We ordered the meatball appetizer as we usually do, and once again it was a great start to the meal. I ordered Adam's shrimp and everything was perfect. The shrimp were delicious mixed with the cream sauce and the vegetables were cooked exactly how I like them, not crunchy but not over cooked, either. My son ordered one of the specials, lobster and scallops with rigatoni. He said it was also delicious and I tried a bite and had to agree. The lobster was tender and very flavorful. We had a tiramisu for dessert, which was the first time we tried it and it was the most flavorful one we had ever eaten. So many tiramisus have a strong coffee flavor, which I do not care for, but Enza's was very subtle with the coffee flavor while the whipped ingredients were smooth and not overly sweet. Our server was very friendly and helpful and the rest of the staff were great by refilling our water glasses and clearing away used dishes. We always enjoy Mr. Wayne stopping by the table to check how everything is and chat for a minute or so. This was a great dining experience.

A great evening with friend at Enza’s. Delicious food, fun atmosphere and an adorable maitre’d. Only one glitch,my husband’s food was luke warm but didn’t want to say anything. He didn’t want the rest of us to wait for him.

Terrific service from Christy. Food was wonderful as always. Really glad there are vegan options, including for dessert. I hope they will expand and promote that aspect.
