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!

Enzo's never fails to deliver! From the breads, pasta, veal and other entrees...always delicious. This time I tried the pistachio gelato. Worth the drive.
And as a bonus, I always get seated on time!

The finest Italian restaurant in Central FL. While the actual facility is dated and cramped, the food and service is outstanding. Don't pass up the antipasto! The veal is tender and tasty and the bouillabaisse with pasta is as good as it gets. If you have time and enough room left for dessert, the tiramisu is a great choice. While the wine list has some options, the house red and white are perfect complements and you needn't break the bank with choices from the list. Only complaint is if your entire party has not yet arrived, they make you wait in the cramped foyer or in the bar until everyone arrives. Even a diner will sit you at your reserved table where you can wait for the rest of the party to arrive. A quibble, but a deluxe restaurant should act like one.

Enzo’s - always wanted to try it - but never got there until last week. Now I wish that I had been going there a lot sooner!

The Chef accommodated my wife’s request for Cacio e Pepe - where else in Orlando do you hear of a Chef going off menu? The entire meal was a true Italian meal - and the ambiance made us forget we were in Orlando. We could have been in any of the great local restaurants you find as you explore Italy.

Glad we finally made it - we will be back!

Peerless.

My favorite Central Florida restaurant for the past couple of decades, there isn't a close second.

It's another world at Enzo's.

Easily the most romantic spot around.

It's idyllic in all ways that matter: food, service, atmosphere, setting...

Peerless.

For starters, when I made the reservation I requested a corner , window, side table or booth rather than be placed in the middle of the room where all the traffic was. Of course they sat us in the middle of the room. I had to ask for bread twice, which is unusual because normally that's the first thing they bring you at a restaurant. Dinner was good but then the server was busy and after desert we waited forever to get our check. I would recommend it because of the food and the atmosphere, but felt a little unsatisfied overall as it was quite pricey and the service could have been better.

When we checked out Trip Advisor for best restaurants in Orlando, Enzo's on the Lake came up and we made reservations for this past Wednesday night. We had no idea that it would take over an hour from where we were staying in Kissimmee, but it was well worth the trip. I highly recommend going early enough in the evening to have a view of the beautiful lake. Our martini's were perfectly made (my Cosmo the perfect pink). My husband and I shared the home made gnocchi with shrimp and scallops as an appetizer, and it melted in your mouth. My husband had the grilled jumbo shrimp with smoked mozzarella risotto, and I had the Zuppa de Pesce (bouillabaisse) for our main courses, and both were equally delicious. We finished our meal with cappuccino, tiramisu and pistachio gelato, and all were wonderful. The owner was lovely and very attentive. The service was outstanding, and as it turned out, our waiter once worked at our favorite Italian restaurant in New York. What a small world. We highly recommend Enzo's!

Unfortunately the service wasn’t great for a restaurant that has such a great reputation. The server took 10 minutes to come over initially to introduce himself. The food wasn’t bad but it wasn’t great either. Nice place but I don’t think we would go back.

Staying at Disney we decided to travel out to Enzo’s for a special night out. The building is a little run down & it’s a bit like dining in someone’s house! Front of the restaurant is positively tatty but the back garden onto the lake is very pretty. Food is good - I would recommend the ravioli & the veal chop was delicate tender & cooked to perfection. Service was lovely. Not sure if we would make the trip again but glad we did it.

Been to Enzo's half a dozen times and always enjoyed it. Thought the food was off this time. Desert was downright not good. Salad and bread were good but the entrees were really marginal. $170 bill for two people with drinks should be better. We live in downtown Orlando and come here only for a change of pace occasionally so no big loss to you guys if we don't come back. Service was good.

An absolute gem. Never would have known about this place, except I was looking for Italian fine dining for my birthday, not far from Oviedo. Fantastic food and has a beautiful lakeside terrace to enjoy cocktails while you wait for your table (they were able to seat us early so we didn't enjoy this too long) but I would have been happy to wait with the quality drinks and the view.
