Great experience, the food is authentic, Southern Italian, great selection, fabulous wines fairly priced, attentive service, one of the few places to come back again and again. Enzo and his team are such an enrichment in Carmel
Food, service, and ambiance was fantastic! The staff was very friendly and personable, and checked on us frequently. The food was DEVINE and genuine excellent Italian cuisine. Will be back for sure :)
Absolutely LOVE Enzo! Fresh, amazing food, wonderful wine selections and great staff. My husband and I have come here multiple times, best place for Italian in Carmel!
First indoor dinner in a year
Waiter did the bottled water "flat" water switch on us right out of the gate. From there it just felt like he was pushing everything on us to the max dollar. I ordered a $50 bottle of wine, he asked if he could make a suggestion, and went to the $175. Even when I declined the $175 he pushed back. Just came off a bad pushy service. I hope they'll adjust there service approach, it's not necessary. We ended up only having wine and leaving.
I have walked by Enzo several times and decided to have dinner with friends from out of town. What a wonderful surprise. Everything was great. Owner met us and our table was ready. The food was amazing. What a joy to find a extensive 1/2 bottle wine list. Not everyone wanted wine so it was a perfect fit for the group. Would highly recommend putting Enzo on your list of places to eat when you are in Carmel.
Eating outside in the rain was just OK due to cover and heater. Will be happy when we can again eat outside. The food was outstanding. We will return the next time we are in Carmel
A great meal. Good service. Cooking fee was high at 30.
Great place love it. Pizza doughy and tasteless tho.
Outstanding-- especially on Valentine's Day -- was exceptional. One of my favorite restaurants in the country.
Lovely dinner outdoors. Our entrees were amazing, will definitely go back!
Absolutely loved it here! All of the food was great, and the wine choice was amazing. Looking forward to coming back!
Wonderful food, excellent service and lovely ambience.
We had a great evening. Food was authentic, perfectly seasoned and every bite delicious. Service was extremely friendly and attentive. Definitely need to head back when we are in town again.
We had a delicious meal and great service at Enzo. Highly recommend the Branzino and the Lamb Shank. Would definitely return!
Quality of food was great. Ordered the pizza. Service was just ok. We didn’t feel very welcomed. We were rushed. One waiter took our menu before we ordered the entree. Said we could not hold onto it. Not really sure why- but ok.
Enzo was a perfect outdoor seated date night. The entrees were delicious. The flatbread pizza was out of this world and the service was excellent. Servers were attentive and patient. The owner was welcoming and made a point to introduce himself.
We truly enjoyed our dinner and the wine. The service was excellent. We highly recommend this genuine Italian restaurant.
Put this one on your “do not miss” list! Fantastic, fresh Italian. Amazing service and a lovely evening.
pastas are delicious. a very nice selection of wines by the glass and bottles, too.
service is attentive, bussers are polite.
Outside Covid dining so ambience and noise are what they are. Food was excellent. Calamari and Shrimp appetizer is some of the best shrimp I've eaten. Paparedelle pasta was great.
I really should choose something other than pasta in an Italian restaurant. I like to eat a good portion and not just look at the mini portion and wonder where the rest is thinking that it's an appetizer. The other meal was just a plate of meat, I think there was a small spoon of potato. Thank goodness Carmel has plenty of choices.
The fried calamari and shrimp appetizer it was great. Tomato soup was also very good. The clam spaghetti excellent. Lasagna borderline would not order again
Really nice service. We enjoyed the food. But there service was great and worth mentioning
Great service and food
Celebrated our first wedding anniversary. Had a wonderful meal and great atmosphere. They did a fantastic job setting up outside due to COVID restrictions. Food was amazing. High recommend the Osobuco. Definitely will eat here every time were up in Carmel.
Food was so average. Owner was very unprofessional and yelled at a customer in front of everyone. The value was not there a all- food should have been half the price for the quality. I should have listened to the negative reviews.
Amazing wine list and food. My husband and I cannot wait to go back! Best pasta we’ve had in a LONG time!
My husband and I were in town for a relaxing, long weekend away from work. This was our first time dining at Enzo and we will definitely be coming back! Service, food and ambience were excellent! Highly recommend the vegetarian fettuccine and lemon mousse.
We didn't realize our outdoor seating lighting would disappear after sundown, and lack of lighting diminished the dining experience. Also, they were out of the one beer I would have ordered, and likewise were out of our dessert preference. But the entrees were delicious, which made the overall experience enjoyable.
Excellent food & service.
Outstanding food and dining experience
Enjoyed a nice cozy "outside" dining experience last weekend. Shared a Grecia salad and Calabrese flatbread which may or may not have been washed down with a glass or two of vino (it was) ... please help Enzo make it through the lockdown and stop by or pickup :D
The food is delicious! What a wonderful experience and I will go back again!
Visiting Carmel my wife and wanted some good wine and a little pasta. Enzo did not disappoint. My traditional gnocchi with pesto was well executed and my wife’s lobster ravioli special was outstanding. Ahead of the pasta we split a caprese salad, which is a favorite of ours. Our individual glasses of wine were fairly priced and paired perfectly with our meal. Our service was very good and friendly while remaking professional. My only complaint was that we had to sit outside due to COVID restrictions. The rub was that our hosts did not have permission to turn on the overhead heaters and we became quite cold at one point, dining in mid-fifty degree weather.
A bit overpriced for what it was. Good food and ambience.
Enzo always greets his guest; it’s a good feeling. The dishes I have tried are very good. If they have the Bronzino do yourself a favor and order it. I loved it and I do not really care for fish. You will enjoy the dining experience.
Love this gem
Great meal and service
Service was brilliant but pasta special arrived cold and with hair in it! The napkin cloth on the bread had a red stain as well. I was really disappointed.
