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!

I've been enjoying Enzo's for over 30 years and never, ever been disappointed. Just go.

Probably the best restaurant in the Orlando area. Beware this is not a red sauce Italian place. The antipasto, the chops, the Roman fare, dessert, etc is beyond most any pretender in the area. The ambiance is comfortable and intimate with the owner, JoAnn Perlini, present and engaged in maintaining a high level. Ive been going there for decades and should be ashamed I don't go more often. After this last meal I'm fixing that. Btw: Get there for sunset.

It was poor. The food was fair, and the service was just as bad. This restaurant has 5 star prices at 2 star food and service. We’ve tired a number of times to give Enzo’s another chance but it consistently fails. There are a lot better high end Italian restaurants than this

Food overall was very good. When I made the reservation I requested a romantic table in a corner or a table with a nice view.... none of that was provided. We were given a table along the wall at the bottom of a busy stair way.

Enjoyed an evening at Enzo's for my wife's birthday. Very quaint atmosphere, and enjoyed our experience very much. The Veal Scallopine was excellent, and although I was a bit puzzled by the peas that accompanied the dish, I understood the moment I tasted them. Scrumptious. My wife had a multi-cheese ravioli that was outstanding. Portions were good, and our drinks were well-crafted. Italian wedding cake for dessert was a good capper for the evening. Romantic, quiet atmosphere even though the place was packed. Service was world class. Will return.

We had a great birthday celebration this past Tuesday. The service was great and we had multiple app's (shitike mushrooms, bruschetta and shaved parmasian cheese) as well as a middle course of pasta's (both Bucatini and Vodka Penne). I had the mixed grille and others had both fish and veal. Enzo's is worth the drive and money. We brought 2 bottles of wine and had a 3rd off their menu. The staff makes every visit special for those attending.

I haven't been to this restaurant in a long time only because it's quite far from my residence. We wanted to go to an authentic Italian restaurant so we decided to make the trip to Enzo's. Our experience was wonderful! The food was fantastic and atmosphere was peaceful and beautiful.
The service was also very good. We definitely won't wait long to return.

I am something of a regular at Enzon's. I love the people there- very warm and friendly. The ambience of the place is beautiful and the food rarely disappoints. It is a truly fine dining restaurant. It is elegant without being stuffy. This is not a cheap but it is worth the price. The pasta is always cooked perfectly and the sauces on everything (pasta, meat, fish) are always excellent. Phenomenal wine list with bottles for almost any taste and price point. Free Valet parking only. I'm already planning to go back.

Firstly the staff here where so amazing.... it was my partners birthday and the staff made us feel at home even though we are from half way around the world... we even met the owner and had a amazing conversation with him.
And the menu was to die for, I felt like I was back in Italy

Highly recommend Enzo’s for any occasion.

I can't say enough great things about Enzo's! I live in Tampa but when I'm in Orlando with time to spare, I love going here. The shiitake mushrooms are so amazing that my son, who hates mushrooms, actually had a few bites because they had so much flavor. In spite of the crazy high cost of the dover sole, I still had to get it because it is one of the most amazing dishes I've ever had. Its deboned table side and absolutely delicious. You know a meal is great when you think about it several days later! My son had the filet even though he prefers more flavorful cuts like ribeye. Every bite was amazing. The prices are slightly higher than one would expect but its absolutely worth it if you're looking for a quality meal. The service is always impeccable.

We're so glad Enzo's is so close by, and it's our go-to dress-up dining establishment. Ernesto's service is always personable, friendly, and professional, and the food is reliably delicious.

We held a birthday st Enzo’s on Saturday evening. This was our first time there after talking about going many, many times and we were not disappointed. From start to finish the meal was well timed and service exceptional. The Mushroom soup (Soup of the Day) was our of this world. We also started with the Bruschetta and it was also very good. Our entrees were also excellent and I had the Filet and my dining companions all three had pasta and we all raced. Finally, on top of cocktails and a few bottles of wine our friend was treated to an amazing slice of cake along with almond cookies and Ginger Snap cookies Courtney of Enzo’s. This was a great night and we will be back very soon!

Oh, wish we could have seen the sculpture garden but due to torrential rains we could not but we could look out on breaks on the rain and admire it....looks fabulous

We visited Enzo's for our anniversary. While they were kind and provided a dessert on the house, the food itself wasn't the best Italian available in the area. The restaurant itself was dated and sort of a hodge podge of decorations, flooring, and the like. Im sure the views of the water would be nice, but it was much too dark when we arrived.

This is the first time I have dinned at Enzo's. Where I had heard good things I was a little skeptical of the location, however, once you get on the property and into the restaurant the ambiance is truly enchanting and romantic. The servicers/staff was friendly but professional and were attentive to our needs without being overly so. The food was delicious and worth the price. Will go back again soon!

We dine here as often as we can. We are always looking for any occaision we can to enjoy this very nice place to have a wonderful dinner for two or for 6. My wife had the grouper (sauteed) and I have the lamb chops. Both were exquisite. We always start with the anti pasta and this included delicious pepper soup with crabmeat. Thanks for a wonderful evening. We'll be back, hopefully soon.

It was a really fantastic experience. Everyone was so welcoming and the service was top notch. The mussel appetizer was delicious. My boyfriend’s steak was cooked perfectly. I can’t say enough great things about our time. The owner wasn’t at the host stand when we left, but ran out to catch us and thank us for coming. True hospitality from start to finish which is what I look for when I dine out!
