Enza's Italian Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Enza'a has been one of our favorite regular restaurants ( >2-3 times a month). Food usually good & service usually decent depending on waiter. On this occasion however we had a terrible experience, mostly related to our waiter.
After seated waiter appeared then disappeared. Eventually returned to take drink order, we received drinks 40 min. after seated.
As diabetic I had medicated in anticipation of food within 30-40 min. When drinks arrived I requested bread. Waiter returned 10 min. informing us bread was in oven. It arrived 10-15 min. later. I asked about salads & that was another 10-15 min. When asking are: salads, almost an hour after sitting down he looked very puzzled.
My meal included a side of pasta, I was asked what kind + what sauce but SIDE OF PASTA NEVER DID COME! We eventually told him to forget the pastaMy wife was p.o.'d, asked him to remove any charge for the pasta to which he somewhat rudely advised that "the side of pasta was free."
Enza herself was in the room, visited a total of 2 tables (of about ? a dozen), one for a lengthy time. That was pretty tacky! IF she was going to check on tables she should have stopped at every one, to do otherwise is disrespectful. I would have loved to discuss our service and displeasure.
IF we ever return to Enza's it will only be if I can request a specific waiter. One has been awesome, some not good at all, and although this server was new, that is no excuse for the awful service + "with an attitude."
They should have made some "adjustment" for food we were supposed to receive but did not. He should have at least pretended to check with someone!
I have met Enza many times, have a "mutual friend" who is there at least weekly. She needs to pay more attention to the "Service" and avoid the very long delays in serving drinks, and food.
Our third dinner at Enza's and everything was perfect. We shared an appetizer of Calamari Fritti that for the third time was served at just the right moment. Hot, tender rings breaded lightly and paired with a delicate fresh marinara. I had the Shrimp Fra Diavolo and my partner had the Shrimp Scampi on capellini. Both entrees were cooked just right. My pasta was served with a complex tomato sauce that was a fine blend of heat, richness and flavor. We shared a tiramisu that surprised with a chocolate flavored cream topping. What a great meal!
If this was not the best meal I have ever had, then I surely do not recall a better one. I had the Veal Ravioli which I have never seen offered before elsewhere. It was outstanding. This was a birthday dinner with my wife. I indicated it on the reservation. The waitress was wonderful and my wife received a free desert option. The deserts were even more delicious than the meal. I would recommend Enza's to everyone.
BEST AUTHENTIC ITALIAN CUISINE in the entire area! Unable to find good Italian food since relocating from RI (Providence & Westerly - both know as "little Italy"), I finally felt like I was home! This was my 2nd (w/many more to come) visits to Enza's. Enza & her husband are fabulous hosts, chefs, & all around great people who truely care about their patrons & the quality of their food & staff. If you are looking for REAL AUTHENTIC ITALIAN CUISINE this is the place to enjoy it. The flavor, ambiance, owners, & staff are excellent & very personable! Pricing is reasonable for the quality AND quantity of food served. An A++++ establishment for everyday dining, special occasions (we celebrated our 15 yr. wedding anniversary), or company functions that is sure to please &I highly satisfy your craving for true authentic Italian cuisine. Thanks Enza for your superb hospitality & cuisine!!!!!!!
We arrived right on time, it was a little hard to find the first time.We got seated right away.Server
was good/adequate.It was busy so liitle slow getting our food.The food was just Ok, nothing
great.Definitely , would go back if not for the pricing.Everything was at least 20% higher
than other competitive Italian restruants we are accustomed to.We had a special,grouper,and
veal parm,with a bottle of wine.
We were there on a Friday night at 6:45. It took 30 minutes to bring our bread and another 5 to bring our salad. 15 minutes later our entrees arrived. My husband ordered chicken francaise and it had no flavor other than salt. I ordered veal Stephanie, it had good flavor, but was also over salted. When the bill arrived my husband's meal was $1.50 over the advertised price. When we inquired as to the reason we were told that although it comes with a side of pasta, he requested oil and garlic in the pasta and they charge $1.50 for that. The waiter did not tell us that when he ordered it. There was no ambiance, lighting was bright and service very slow. We will not return.
Well, we were traveling from Atlanta ga to St. Augustine, & needed a place for dinner. I checked out their reviews and it sounded terrific . It was a perfect neighborhood gem , from the server , to the HOSPITABLE OWNER, ENZA..& the delicious food, and I do mean capital D for delicious! Enza treated us like family, as well as our courteous server .... they bend our backwards to please u !
We wish u were in Palm Beach...so we could go more often...thanks for a great meal.
My wife and I were on our Date night. We heard about Enza's from a friend of mine. Well when we walked in we new this was going to be good. It was cozy, the Piano player was Great, we loved the low lighting, it was quiet, we didn't have to yell to hear each other. The food was fabulous. We started out with the Big meatball it was Great. I could make a meal out of that and a salad. But we had a wonderful meal, the service was impeccable. We would Definitely Recommend Enza's to others. What a Great dining experience.
We had out of town friends meet us here for dinner. We dine here often. Our wedding dinner and daughter’s graduation dinners were here. As always the food was delicious. Enza stopped by the table to say hi. Our guests were very impressed with the staff and the meal.. especially the eggplant parmigiana that I highly recommended prior to that night.
I always refer people to Enza’s for delicious Italian cuisine. 😊
Enzas offers a truly authentic and extensive Italian menu. The food is amazing... the best meal ever is not an exaggeration. We had the special Scallops Aglio special, chicken parm, and the teen had pillows of ravioli. The owner greets his guests at the door, checks in during dining, and asks about the experience on the way out... Truly a gentleman who cares. The piano bar is a perfect compliment.
I love the food never tasted anything better. My only suggestion is that a separate place be provided for people in large parties with small children. We sat by a large table with children that were loud and out of control. Crawling and wailing on the table was unacceptable. They needed to stay home and we should have been able to enjoy our dinner and not have to compete with the brats for conversation. Our server Madison was outstanding and most gracious
Unfortunately the food prepared by this restaurant has nothing to do with real Italian food. Our waitress was wonderful though. I ordered Chicken Francese which is supposed to be a light dish. This came covered with a glutinous gloppy sauce which I immediately removed from the plate. The pricey pork shank Osso Buco arrived covered with an over-salted chunky tomato sauce. Nothing to do with Osso Buco. Another restaurant off the list.
Ambiance was terrific. Hospitality beyond any other. Authentic, delicious Italian cuisine. Service was average b/c not as attentive or attention to detail as usually. Server young & easily distracted. Banquet room a/c temp not cool enough but that is easily corrected. Reservations recommended for Friday or Saturday evenings. Amazing restaurant, amazing food, amazing atmosphere, fun to mingle w regulars and door attendant is like nothing other...he’s amazingly authentic & takes pride in presence w/his attire. Enza’s should be on anyone who loves Italian food bucket list.
