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.

Acoustics made it noisy no sense in having piano music which otherwise would be nice atmosphere. Food was excellent. Waiter was nice but forgot to tell us about specials we'd already ordered when I overheard another waiter give them to a table.

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 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.

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.
