We had a fabulous experience. We were immediately merged at the door by a friendly waitress and seated right away. They have a huge selection of food and several specials to choose from. Even though our waitress had a large table behind us, she took great care of us. This was an amazing restaurant and we will definitely be back again and again.

Excellent food! However, the restaurant was extremely noisy because there was a bridal party on the lower level. We went for the atmosphere but it was a ruined evening.

We were a group of 8 on a Saturday afternoon. The restaurant was not full, so we were able to relax and enjoy conversation. Our server, Claudio, is the best. He's professional, knowledgeable and efficient and , at the same time, very friendly . I had the seasonal special of pumpkin cappellacci in a brown butter and sage sauce, which was excellent. Others had the chicken parmesan, gnocchi, chicken vesuvio and chicken tetrazzini, which were all very good. We had such a nice time with family and good food in a very comfortable and friendly setting.

The service was very friendly and the food was excellent. While the main entrée was sized just right, the salad and pasta side dishes were too small for the price we paid. I would expect more. Still, this left room for dessert which was superb. Great place for special occasions.

This was the first time me and my colleagues visited this restaurant and we were very disappointed. The worse Grouper I have ever had. The soup and salad was awful. Honestly the only thing that was good was the bread.

This is a very nice restaurant, with well-made food. The specials of the day, salmon and a pumpkin ravioli, were outstanding. We preferred them to food at other, more widely-known restaurants. It's pretty casual, not at all formal, very kid friendly. The wine list has some decent bottles that tend to show up in restaurants around the country, ones you can quickly spot and be confident in.

I had my wedding rehearsal dinner here and everything was Great!
The service and food was fantastic. The atmosphere was great for all of my family and friends.
Although our group was loud (especially my friend Rich) we didn't interfere with other people's conversations.
I'm glad I had reservations because the place was packed !!!

My wife and I dined here to celebrate our 18th anniversary. We are both on the keto diet, so we avoided bread and pasta. This was not hard to do as the menu was accommodating.

For an appetizer, we ordered the Fried Calamari. It was lightly and breaded, without clumps or gaps. She had the Veal Enzo while I had the Veal Saltimbocca. We ordered roasted vegetables on the side and house salads. Everything was delicious, and the portions were just right -- not too much, not too little.

Our server, whose name escapes me as I write this, was very kind and attentive. Enzo and Lucia staff, if you're reading this, he was a server on staff the night of 9/5/2017.

One more thing: The night we ate was a rather quiet one. We've been here on busier nights, and it can be a very lively dining experience. The restaurant feels like a very large dining room, so if you like that feel, you will enjoy your meal. (I did not intend to rhyme there, but I'm leaving it.)

The food was pretty good but the noise on Saturday night was unbearable and made the experience unpleasant. I would never go back on a Saturday night unless you love not hearing the conversation of your own guests. They need some sound-absorbing surfaces -- or quieter clientele. That said, everyone at our table enjoyed the food.

Love going here every year for either our Anniversary or my husband's birthday... next time, we won't go on a Saturday (early) evening, though, as a large group at the bar made our romantic dinner a bit uncomfortable. It's not usually like that, though... I would call ahead and ask if you're planning something quieter.

We love Enzo and Lucias. The food and atmosphere are amazing and very authentic. Every time we go we are treated like long lost relatives. The setting in Long Grove is very cozy and adds to the experience. It's our "go to" for a date or special occasion with family or friends. Great drinks and wine too. Don't be shy and take the chopped garlic they offer you with the hot bread. It's the best! I have never had anything on the specials or menus that wasn't wonderful! Go, but don't take our table.😊

We had a party of 10 for a birthday celebration. I looked up reservation options for the time & date and only a handful of places showed up available to book because of the number of people. I was happy to see Enzo & Lucia in the mix because I had been there twice and had a good experience each time. They set aside a nice big table for us in a corner and the waitress was good without being pushy. Sometimes it's hard to find a happy medium, but she was great. The only complaint i have is that it was hot inside!!! We weren't the only people sweating in there and they did turn down the air but it didn't do much good.
