Had son and daughter-in-law with and wanted to impress. Sat in different dining area. Server was worst yet. Not attentive. Forgot extras like cracked pepper for salads. Fresh cheese for entrees, carafe fur bottle of red wine, side of pasta for sons entree, etc. owner least friendly of last 3 weeks but again restaurant very busy. Food remains amazing though. It’s a trade off whether to continue going for the food and dealing with challenging serving.

The best Italian food in NE Florida. Great wine list, too! It's my #1 place to dine.

My guest and I were seated outside and it was an awesome experience! Our server was awesome, friendly, and super cautious given our current pandemic situation. After dinner, we went inside and listened to the piano player and requested several songs! Overall, it was a great time and we will visit again soon!

Once again an amazing culinary experience at this great Italian restaurant here in our own Jacksonville. Incredible service by the amazing Sam, dazzled with Chef Willi new dish made specially for myself and another amazing dish for my fiancé. The great sounds of Carl in the background playing some amazing piano music made this night absolutely perfect as always each and every time we visit this amazing restaurant. We were even visited by Enza herself with a new sample of a swordfish dish in this amazing Roma sauce that she is going to add to the menu. The sampling was so good that we made reservations again for this Friday to go back and have this new dish she is adding as a special to her menu. The sample of this swordfish dish just melted in my mouth and I can hardly wait to get back there Friday to enjoy a full portion of this amazing new dish… Once again we have our own north end of Boston and Federal hill in Providence right here in Mandarin. Please visit this restaurant for an amazing evening of a culinary experience surrounded by incredible sounds of a piano 🎹, incredible service and a culinary experience that will keep you coming to this amazing restaurant❤️❤️❤️

The atmosphere, the service and the food are wonderful. Mike and Enza offer a delightful dining experience. The menu offers a variety of favorites and has some unique dishes. The daily specials make it almost impossible to decide what to order. It’s a great problem to have. That said, whatever you order, you can’t go wrong. By the way, the wine list is great too. And even in these days when everyone worries about dining safety it seems the staff takes every precaution. When it comes to Italian restaurants there are many from which to choose in the Jacksonville area. Enza’s is a family run restaurant that stands out among the rest!

Second time. Came back week later due to being so impressed. This time service was off. Had different server - female not as good as male last week. Food still amazing. Restaurant has 3 different dining areas. Have had the same area twice. Will request different area for next time. Owner said hello. Seemed very rushed not as friendly as last week restaurant busy.

Absolutely amazing every time we enter this restaurant and chef Willy outdid himself for my fiancé‘s meal. She is vegan and his vegetarian combination and grilled vegetables was the best she has had since we’ve been going to the restaurant. He truly outdid himself and we truly appreciate his creativity and his effort placed along with his visit to the table. Sam our server was her usual outstanding self with Quality and everything that she did from our great martinis to the amazing service at our table upon arrival of our food. This restaurant is a must visit for anybody in Jacksonville who loves fine dining, Italian style super service and an ambience of outstanding play of Carl on the piano that is a perfect backdrop if you were sitting in Little Italy or the north end of Boston or up on Providence hill in Rhode Island… We have our own magical Italian restaurant right here in Jacksonville led by the great ownership of Enza and her entire staff

Enza’s is our GoTo restaurant when we are in Jacksonville. We live a 2 hour drive away. The quality of food and excellent service are unmatched. We ha business to take cate of so we made a 5:30 reservation. Our day went better than expected & we were done earlier. We went early and Enza’s was happy to accommodate us. We had the meatball (always a favorite), the Veal Osco Bosco, & the seafood stuffed shells - all were outstanding. Our very favorite dining experience.

We had not visited Enza’s in awhile. We had an early dinner reservation and everything was wonderful. We were greeted warmly by the hostess and shown to our table immediately. The restaurant did a very good job with social distancing-wait staff in masks, and diners were seated at a safe distance. Our waiter was very efficient and answered all of our questions. Our dinner arrived in a timely manner and we thoroughly enjoyed the dinner music provided by a very talented piano player. We will be back.

Enza's remains fantastic, even in COVID-times. Great social distancing with tables, staff very attentive, safe measures all around. But most importantly, the food is as delicious as ever. The Asiago gnocchi special was fantastic!

Had a special evening and my reservation requested to sit on the bar side to enjoy the live music. We were seated far away on the other side. Perhaps because of social distancing.

Always great food and service.
We were seated in the bar area and, with the music in the same room, it was a little difficult at times to hear each other. Nice music - just a bit loud for our taste.

The experience at Enza’s was phenomenal. From the service to the food, everything was top-notch! Our server (Stephanie) was extremely knowledgeable and professional and you could tell that she really took an interest in making sure our experience there was special. Enza, the owner, was extremely hospitable and came to our table to inquire about our dinner and how everything was. She was so so nice. What a sweet family! I highly recommend the lobster rigatoni with sherry wine sauce 😳 Also the goat cheese bruschetta. We will definitely be coming back here again.

Typically I love Enza’s but definitely had an off night. My colleagues and I all ordered a fish special. When it arrived it was too “fishy” and I couldn’t even eat it. The server asked if I’d like something else which I initially declined but decided at her insistence to order chicken piccata (which was excellent). She asked if anyone at the table would like to take the fish home so my coworker said sure. It was boxed up for her to take. When the bill came I was surprised that we were being charged for all three fish dinners and the replacement piccata. I assumed it was an oversight and when I asked she said “well you’re taking it with you”. But she went to find someone to ask. When she came back the bill was revised to remove the fish but she informed us we’d have to leave it. I will absolutely go back because I’ve always had a great time and great food but the service that night was the absolute worst! Oh and this is all after the owner came to our table to inform us that one of her employees had just tested positive and did we want to stay or leave!!! Guess we should’ve left them.

Ridiculously small portions, lack of seasoning. I bought $27 worth of food and still left hungry! The salad I got had maybe 4 oz of chicken breast and the appetizer I got was only five shrimp!

Has osso bucco was supposed to be on risoto. Received white rice with veggies that we're still cold. The pork was wonderful. Husband had chicken parmesan and the breast was too thin and tough. Not at all juicy. Waited a long time for dinner and we understand that it was a busy night
