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!

It was our 16th anniversary. Enzo’s is such a special place. It feels like home but with better service and better food. We started with the burrata appetizer which was creamy, salty, and savory. My wife had the mushroom peppardelle pasta which she loved. The mushrooms were peppery and meaty, but it didn’t feel heavy even with the thick pasta. I had the tenderloin filet with a Parmesan crisp in a balsamic reduction. It was perfectly seared and more unique than the typical steakhouse filet. They brought us an assortment of cake and cookies for dessert. We washed it all down with a couple glasses of red wine and a perfect cappuccino. Overall, it was a great anniversary dinner.

We went to Enzos for their Friday lunch, reserving a table at their 11:30am opening. When we arrived at 11:30am we waited 15 minutes before anyone even recognized us. Since we were the first to be seated, we asked if we could sit in front of a window for the view, but were told "no, you need to sit here" and were put in front of a wall blocking the view. When we left 75 minutes later, the table we requested was still empty. The food was good, not great, but the lack of a greeting and refusal to sit us at a table with a view despite being open was a real turn off.

Entree came out very cold which was a bummer. Sent it back but then spouse didn’t want to eat her entree until I was served. Just not acceptable at a fine dining restaurant. Also, we were in back room where it was very loud. Made the reservation 2 weeks in advance for 25th anniversary. Have been MULTIPLE times over the last 7 years and last two occasions were “just ok”. Will likely not return for a while. Better options are available, it was a favorite but seems to have dropped lately. Overall, pretty disappointing especially for a significant occasion.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner celebrating our daughter's special birthday. Service was excellent and the food delicious, however a little pricey. We would, however, recommend Enzo's On The Lake for a special occasion event.

Portion sizes average. I was disappointed in the carbonara. Very dry and didn’t love the anti pasta plate. Son and husband enjoyed their vodka pasta and lobster in saffron sauce. Service and staff outstanding. Food used to be better.

Absolutely hands down the best Italian restaurant in Central Florida. Everything prepared from scratch. The mixed grill can only be found here and they have a great wine list. Not inexpensive but well worth the value. Joanne and her team provide excellent service too.

The meatballs and ravioli were phenomenal with an exceptional marinara sauce. The side of broccoli in garlic and olive oil was absolutely amazing. The mussels were very tasty but had not been cleaned properly and the desert had a hair in it. I asked the waiter to replace it which he did, but he did not comp it and I certainly thought he should have in that type of restaurant at that price. The wine was good from a very nice wine list and the atmosphere was just divine.

The meals was delicious and the service was incredible: fast, prompt, courteous. The valet was very good. The grounds with the beautiful flowers and the deck overlooking the lake made for a lovely evening. And we had some innovative concoctions from the bartender :-)
I had planned to take us to Buca di Beppo for our celebration, but due to needing a closer place I happened upon Enzo’s...and what a delightful happenstance… It met all my expectations and is now the preferred place. My wife and I are returning there, just the two of us, this week… Looking forward to a splendid evening.
Oh yeah, got to try their balsamic vinegar dribbled on the vegetables… We sopped every bit of it up with their delicious bread.

Fantastic food, served beautifully, with wonderful, attentive server! We love Pete at the bar, Ernesto, Joanne, & the entire crew. Would not be a birthday celebration without Zuccato cake! I love everything about this place from the veal scallopine agrodolce ,to the grilled shrimp gamberi, to the pappardelle alla Farnese... only problem is picking a favorite! Only place that I like the risotto! YUM!!

Service was good although the server removed entre plates from 2 of the guests while 2 others were eating which is poor form. Also, Enzo's had numerous specials but prices weren't discussed. Got a big surprise when the fish special was on my bill for $58. Including the price in the specials discussion by the waiters would be appreciated by most patrons.
