Overall a nice place - food is very overpriced - service not great - we got entrees first, then salads, then drinks! Decent wines though.

Food and service were excellent! We were there on 1/2 price bottle night which was an unexpected surprise. Our server never made us feel rushed, so my friend and I could spend time at the table catching up. A really nice dining experience.

Chicken Cacciatore should be served with the chicken cut in pieces, not as a half chicken! I have eaten this dish all over the US and Italy, as well as prepared by my mother, who was a gourmet Italian cook.

We've been to Enzo's twice. Love it and will go again, for sure.
The food has always been good, except they could do a better job on the Bruschetta.
That's an Italian staple so it should be more than a pile of tomatoes on cheap, thin toast.
The lighting could be dimmed a bit more...and since I'm a vegetarian, I admit, the raw meat hanging in the glass cooler in the entry is not appetizing to me but I now know to look the other way :)

Made a reservation and had dinner on a Friday night - first time out after so many months of quarantine and was really craving a good Italian meal. Saw an advertisement for Enzo's and decided to give it a try. Really glad we did - the Covid protocols and distancing were all excellent. Our waiter, (Raul) while slightly overworked with too many tables/duties, was excellent and as attentive as he could be for the circumstances! Several other servers also helped out - bringing the wine, bringing the salad/soup; and then the entrees. It was a little strange being helped by so many people - but they all had smiles and good attitudes which was appreciated! Wedge salad was outstanding; soup mediocre; main pasta dishes (one with fabulous homemade spicy sausage) were good! I was disappointed in the two measly little pieces of focaccia bread we got and the olive oil was not flavorful at all. There are these wonderful loaves of bread on display as you walk in and that was what I hoped we would be able to sample as our "bread", but no such luck - the focaccia was just so so. We needed a GOOD bread with our salad the drinks were outstanding! All in all, we will be back and we do recommend it - the place still has a few bugs to work out, but all in all, it is a wonderful mini trip to Italy!! Oh and they really need to monitor their restroom facilities for tp and papertowels more regularly - but that was minor.

Large space with ample seating for social distancing needs. Our server was wonderful when we were first seated and he took our order but then we never saw him again - instead we had multiple other people that walked by. It was odd but ok I guess. Maybe it was a Covid thing? Linguine Vongole was excellent, Malfadine Mare needed a bit more spice to the sauce and Pappardelle Bolognese was flavorful but a little oily. Overall, we really enjoy this place and will back often.

A new and most welcome addition to Issaquah. The inside has a large long bar, wine chiller and they age their meat, and bake fresh pasty and bread daily. Prime rib is a yes, tender and beautifully prepared. Calmari, best our group has had in a long time. The anti pasta salad was filling and delicious. Our group was very pleased with the meal. The service was attentive and very good. We will go back again and again. Oh, and try the pizza. they make their own crust.

The food was mediocre and relatively bland. The chicken parmesan was a can of crushed tomatoes with chicken and cheese on top. The linguine with clams had neither taste of clams or white wine. And where was the espresso in the tiramisu? The service was friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere was relaxed. So overall, a nice place but the food wasn't memorable. We were looking for something special on a Saturday night and unfortunately this wasn't the place.

Delicious meal, generous portions, seasoned professional waiter who did not rush us. We sat outside on their extensive deck and were plenty warm with their many heaters turned on.

The cannelloni and creme brulee were incredible! We will be back soon.

We enjoyed a nice patio meal at Enzo's, where their investment into improving the existing building and gardens was notable and lovely. Our server was very good in spite of having been overwhelmed by several tables in his section being seated at the same time. The food was delicious; generous portions. A downside was sitting directly below the music speaker which, while we understand needs to be turned up for all to hear, was pretty overwhelming.

Ordered a ton off the menu and all of it was pretty great...except one dish (calamari) which we didnt enjoy - super fishy and it needed lemon and a killer aioli (personal pref here). All other dishes were very nice and one standout - the pappardelle bolognese and the antipasta with their homemade cured meats. Bravo Enzo's and welcome to town! We will be back for sure. ~M~

Went for lunch with two others. Didn’t realize when I made reservations that it was a la carte so nothing came with it. Even a la carte a restaurant would comp a plate of antipasti to share or include a piece of garlic bread. The Lasagna portion was not worth the $13.00 but it was delicious. I had mentioned with the reservation that it was a birthday lunch but that wasn’t recognized. So a bit disappointed but I also realize they had just opened a few weeks prior. I’ll say I’d recommend them as to say no would not be fair.

They'd been open three weeks when I visited and there were a few hiccups but I will come back again after they've found their footing.

We had a noon reservation which is when they open. My friend got there a few minutes early and was met by a very surly and unpleasant young man dressed in black. She was so disturbed by this "unwelcome" that I suggested we go somewhere else. She opted to stay and we were led through the restaurant to the freshly landscaped patio and given menus. Our server brought us water (which wasn't refilled during our two hour visit on an 80+ degree day). Granted, I didn't request more water because in most sit-down restaurants, it just comes when the server sees that your glass is empty.

I ordered the sausage lentil soup which was good (I like mine better). I also ordered the wedge salad which I thought was small for $9.00. My friend ordered the eggplant parmesan but what arrived was a grilled cheese sandwich with fries instead of the casserole dish she was expecting. She didn't realize she was actually ordering an eggplant parmesan sandwich, but she ate the grilled cheese she was served and liked it. Our server comped her meal due to the mix-up.

The interior is nice with a very interesting illuminated bar top and dark wood everywhere. I would give them another chance and want to welcome them to Issaquah. There is an Enzo's in Rancho Mirage, CA that we will try when we're there this winter.

Wonderful new place w a nice menu. A fresh new cuisine is what Issaquah needs. Great go to family spot. Just opened, so working out kinks but staff was very open about that and eager to make our dining experience great... and they did! We’ll be back often.

And then the Wagu steak. Best I ever had.
