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!

First, to start, when we walked in the quant restaurant, the Owner, greeted us with elegance, and wished my husband a happy birthday. It was such a wonderful evening. Dinner was exceptionally wonderful. At the end of our dinner, they brought over a slice of wedding cake for my husband and it was delicious!! Definitely, will come again.

Have lived in Longwood for 20 years and had never tried Enzo’s - until Saturday! WOW, have I been missing authentic, DELICIOUS, Italian food! A little pricey so I will be saving it for special occasions, but absolutely worth every penny! Servers are very attentive as well.

The best anniversary dinner we could have ever imagined. They made it so special for us. The first thing they said when we walked in was “happy anniversary!” After dinner they surprised us with a DELICIOUS cake with a candle for our anniversary as well. The service was the best I have ever had, so friendly and warm. The food is unparalleled. It’s by far my favorite restaurant overall.

Enzo’s is our absolute favorite Italian restaurant! The owner is always there to greet us and the staff is phenomenal. The bucatini is our go to meal with a bottle of red wine, but you can’t go wrong with everything on the menu. It’s a great place to go for date night or a special occasion.

The food was extremely overpriced for the quality. The bruchetta was made with burnt toast and tasteless tomoates. The steak arrived with 4 small potato pieces. The pasta was tasty but not worth $23. What made this experience bearable was the delicious, homemade ginger snaps and our amazing server.

I had high expectation for this restaurant as I read so many good reviews but unfortunately it did not deliver. My filet had too much balsamic vinegar, meat was too dry so nothing special. My wife's dish was beautifully presented on restaurant photos but in reality what she got was something very different (almost no lobster on her seafood pasta dish). Maybe we order wrong.
High note was the service always nice and efficient from beginning to the end.

Hands down, one of the finest Italian restaurants I’ve had the pleasure of dining in. Food, service, ambiance are spectacular. You feel the love and experience the attention to detail from the moment you are welcomed till the time you depart. Back home in Chicago and missing Enzo’s already. Have already recommended friends to visit and looking forward to a return trip.

This was a return visit after about 15 years. First experience was memorable— should have left it that way. My food was VERY spicy, even the Caesar salad! There was no indication on the menu of that. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his meal. Service was good, but our table was right near many other loud tables when there were several quieter options that were unused that evening. So disappointed!

Enzo’s is a “destination restaurant.” Not much around it, but worth the drive. I had very high expectations based an endorsement from my VERY picky 100% Italian mom. I think she oversold it a bit. Food was good, but not outstanding. Service was outstanding.
