Enzo and Lucia Ratings and Reviews
We love this restaurant. It happens to be really near where we live and is a great place to get together with friends for dinner on a weekend night. This past weekend we were a party of 7, but we've had larger and more intimate groups as well. The staff of the restaurant always makes us feel welcome. One 'problem' we always have is with the delicious bread. It's just impossible to resist (so don't even try). Our favorite appetizer by far is the grilled octopus. It is simple and perfect. Served with lemon wedges. This last time, my husband and I actually ordered another plate of octopus to share. It's that good. As a main dish, others in our party swear by the gnochi with proscuito. My husband had a chicken dish with mozzarella which he thoroughly enjoyed. And last, I must give credit again to the staff and kitchen of this lovely local spot for its flexibility. Our party certainly kept them on their toes by ordering two off-menu main dishes: one of our party ordered chicken marsala without mushrooms, and I asked for fettucine with a spicy bolognese. Both requests were graciously accepted and the dishes appeared perfectly prepared to order. Bravi!
It was incredible! Recommended by friends and it was so much better than they described. The folks that run the restaurant and serve the clients are outgoing and fun to be around. The food is authentic and plentiful. Nice little bar area and warm dining room make dining there a real treat!!
Unfortunately, in our opinion, this didn't live up to the hype we had read in the reviews. Our server was the saving grace of this experience. We just were not impressed with the food for the level of price. We did think the the grilled octopus, squid and shrimps were nice. Not overly seasoned and the flavor was natural of the ingredients.
Food was delicious - service great except the waitress reeked of cigarettes when she delivered the salads which I find intolerable. We also think $25 for a corkage fee is way out of line for this area. D & Js down the road charges $15 fee and has an exceptional wine list.
We usually love this place and that’s why I picked it for my bday celebration. However, the restaurant had booked their main dining for a party and we were forced to dine in their basement. It was awful! Low ceiling and cement floors. It felt like a basement and not a nice one. Also the party above must have had a lot of children because they kept jumping and running right over our heads! The food was delicious and our waitress was tremendous but if I would’ve known that I was going to be seated in the basement, I would not have dined here.
Every first weekend in December my sister and niece from out of state come and we spend a day in the city and our Saturday evening at a different venue for a nice Italian dinner and visit. This was the first time in 5 years here of not being happy with our selection. First we were jammed in on the stretch where everyone walks. Then it was so loud my niece got a headache, let alone we wanted to talk but felt like we had to yell because of how loud it was. The salad and bread great, but our main meals were nothing to brag about. Not very tasteful at all. Very bland. I picked this restaurant after reading an article on internet from only in Chicago the October 26th article regarding the tiny town near Chicago. I'm sorry but when we are paying 150.00 to eat we really expected much more!
We were disappointed that our OpenTable reservation didn't pick up our note saying we needed a highchair for an infant, which meant we needed to change our table to allow enough room for eight and a high chair. We had to wait for a new table to be set which we didn't like so we had to change again (third time) to give us the room we needed so the baby wasn't too close to hot food and platters. The service was good, the wait staff was very attentive and the management was checking in on us and following up with us which was pleasant and appreciated. The food was delicious. Everyone was pleased with their selections. Enzo and Lucia is highly recommended. If you book online and have special notes, make sure you call them in and don't depend upon the OpenTable notes section to transfer important notes.
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.
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.
My husband and I really enjoy the restaurant, but, Tuesday nite, the soup was luke warm and had to be sent back, the waiter who brings around the garlic oil and bread did not offer a refill,and my grilled octopus ,calamari, and shrimp were not hot, just barely warm
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.
