Enzo's on the Lake is the perfect place for an evening of cocktails, fine food and wine, delicious desserts and very special hospitality. In 1980, Enzo's on the Lake opened as a lovely secluded lakefront restaurant, built in the style of an Italian villa. The restaurant is dedicated to the idea of simple yet sophisticated cuisine: family owned, crafted with love. The freshest fish, meats, fruits and vegetables that can be obtained are woven into a menu that emphasizes a unique culinary heritage. An antipasto bar welcomes you to the excitement of the dining room overlooking the lake. There is a full service european style bar, private dining areas for meetings and parties, and lakeside gardens and dock. We look forward to serving you!

Charming romantic location, below average food.
The restaurant is old, charming and beautiful location in the lake. The menu is standard classics, and not very creative. I ordered the special of the day veal with peas. The plate was somewhat tasty but the presentation made elementary cafeteria food look fancy in comparison. The veal was tasty but poorly plated and the Peas were thrown on the plate. Honestly, it was my first time here, but it left me no desire to return. There are too many Italian restaurants in town that offer superb creative food at reasonable prices. The patio on the lake is beautiful, but it cannot satisfy the lack of satisfaction of the food.
Menu Definitely needs an update.

I wanted to take my wife somewhere special and Enzo’s was really fantastic! The appetizers and the main course were some of the best Italian food we have ever had. The restaurant was beautiful and the view of the lake was nice. The service was friendly and top notch.

Great food with a beautiful lake view. The service was attentive but not overbearing.
A good selection of wine and bar drinks. The bread basket was delicious. It is valet parking. The only issue we had is they ran out of the daily special, It was only 6:30 in the evening

Our evening out was to celebrate the wedding anniversary of both couples. We were greeted with anniversary wishes. The table was near the window and very nice. Our servers were friendly and very competent. As a special addition each couple received a delicious piece of cake. All of our meals were excellent. It was noisy but not overwhelmingly so. We would high recommend Enzos.

What a wonderful welcoming place this is. The meals are consistently fabulous. The service is old school and the various small dining rooms are charming. It’s a 50 min ride for us and we’ll worth it. Don’t count on belting able to just walk in, we always reserve in advance. You will not be disappointed

“Horrible experience.” I made a reservation for my anniversary a week ahead to surprise my wife, requesting a back window, and even called to confirm before my arrival. I had a new ring to surprise my wife to give her at sunset by the window, but we were shoved in a corner facing a wall. No assistance to change tables, and manager said we don’t make promises? Well, I can promise I won’t ever be back, we left after our first glass of wine. Called back, and the manager/owner had no care or remorse for what happened.

Funny thing is they said they don’t promise table or make reservations, but when we asked to switch to an empty/open table that evening, the waitress said no, it’s reserved?

How can someone else reserve a specific table, but I requested a week prior online, and called to confirm my request? Neither honored, anniversary dinner ruined. Don’t waste your time or money, worst experience in a very long time.

This was only our second time going to Enzo's as it is a considerable drive for us just to go to dinner. Traffic in the Longwood area is horrendous at the dinner hour and it takes over an hour of combat driving so we reserve our trips to Enzo's to special occasions such as birthdays. We repeated our trip this year to my wife's birthday on the 26th just like last year. It was Deja vu all over again. Same rainy night, another traffic snarl delay. Upon arrival at Enzo's we were seated at the same table for two that we had last year and were greeted by Ernesto, the same fine waiter we had last year. Started the meal with a cocktail and the Cozze, fresh mussels in a delicious broth of garlic and tomatoes and other goodies, great for dipping bread into after the mussels are gone. I had the Zuppa de Pesce, an Italian bouillabaisse that was excellent to say the least. My wife had her usual Scallopine Al Agrodolce, a veal scallopini dish which is her favorite and she remembered from last year as being superb. It was. Along with an excellent Chianti Classico, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Ernesto took great care of us and made sure we were happy with everything. After dinner coffee and a large piece of complimentary birthday cake topped off the evening and made the hassle of getting there worthwhile. Our anniversary is in June and we will be going to challenge the traffic and return to Enzo's for another memorable meal.

Having been born and raised in Boston, we were always a short drive to the North End (“Little Italy”). Over the years, we enjoyed some spectacular Italian cooking. Having moved to Central Florida three years ago, we have struggled to find any restaurant that rivaled the North End. Enzo’s On The Lake did it! The food was fantastic. The portions were perfect. The service was there when you needed it, but not in your face. Would highly recommend Enzo’s, and we will now be regular customers!
