Coming in earlier today, (Tuesday) at around 5pm, we had a hard time deciding. Brad was jovial an prompt. His humor was infectious and he quickly seated us. There was actually no one in the restaurant which was nice for a while. The server Christina was able to give us her full attention and we were able to even meet the owner Vinny. All three were amazing, and livened the place up.
After what seemed like a bit, we finally decided on a dish for everyone. Pizza. Initially it was pasta but the bread that came was enough starch. We got appetizers, 2 to be exact and felt that if this Italian restaurant could not make a oven baked pizza then there was no point in anything else and boy oh boy did Enzo's deliver.
The cheese had a funk to it which told us it was fresh an it pulled as we ate each bite. The salsa had a zest and the pepperonis had a great texture. The bread was great, the crust not too prominent, the crunch as you snap it to fold it in two is always satisfying. I ate one an my mouth still salivated for more. The oil glistened on top an lazily dripped off the pizza.
It was excruciatingly good! The only thing I didn't like was that the marinara was warmer than the bread brought to the table. The fried calamari wasn't tough, the breading crunched. It was well seasoned too. Definitely worth the 5 stars. It's getting and I am looking forward to coming back again for our anniversary in a January if not sooner.
Food was outstanding extremely favorable and traditional. Waiter was rather rude from
When we came in. We did dine later than usual for us due to circumstances. If the place was closing they could have let us know they were no longer taking tables because of the kitchen was closing but at no point did the waiter mention this. Multiple times prior to ordering he came over and said whats up? Whats up? In much of a rush mode, i was helping my husband adjust his new phone which should be irrelevant to my dinner or how we were spending our time together while we eating but the waiter made mention to that i was using the phone. Again i hAve to say the food was amazing but the service was less than preferred and service like this is would prevent me from coming back to an establishment like this .
We celebrated my husband's birthday there last night. They have high chairs but no booster chairs and no kid's menu. However, they were able to make a small penne alfredo for our daughter which she loved! I enjoyed my spaghetti bolognese and the pizza my brother-in-law had looked huge and delicious! My husband had the veal cannoli with escarole. He said the escarole was delicious but he's not a fan of cream sauce so if he'd known,he probably would not have gotten it. My husband pointed out that the menu clearly states no substitutions so keep that in mind if you're a fan of the substitution.
We had dinner at Enzo's during the summer. The decorating is very old world
I had steak pizziolla. It was way over cooked and loaded with olives. I don't like olives and really did not eat it. I should have sent it back but didn't. I looked up recipes for this fish before writing this and no recipes had olives. The rest of the folks at the table enjoyed the dinners. It's a very good Italian restaurant and you should try it.
We popped in to Enzo's late on a Sunday night and were pleasantly surprised by the modern, newly remodeled interior. You would never guess what a gem was hiding inside this strip mall restaurant from the outside! The interior has high ceilings, sleek, new wood floors, and grey modern booths and chairs.
We were seated immediately and the place was packed at 8pm, but quickly cleared out from the earlier dinner rush. The restaurant was short-staffed according to our server, but we received excellent and quick service.
Focaccia Bread and oil with sun-dried tomatoes were brought to our table shortly after we sat down. The focaccia was still warm and the oil was the perfect salty accompaniment for dipping. We also ordered the garlic knots and the roasted red peppers as appetizers. The garlic knots came in an order of six with marinara sauce for dipping. The roasted red peppers came with a solid serving and plenty of garlic for additional flavor. Both were simple, but delicious.
We tried four different dishes for dinner. The pastas were all excellent and generous portions. The pappardelle with pesto could use some veggies or meat to Kalie it more substantial, but the pasta was fresh and the sauce was good. The spaghetti al bendy was an interesting cross between a carbonara and a more Cajun-style Alfredo pasta. It came with peas, prosciutto and caramelized onions. You couldn't really taste the caramelized onions, but the peas brought a nice color to the dish. The pasta had a pretty generous amount of prosciutto and gave the dish a nice saltiness. The cannelloni Fiorentina was the star dish of the table - a perfect creaminess balanced by fresh pasta, chicken and spinach. There were no leftovers! The chicken and peppers dish was just okay. It was the end of the evening and it tasted a bit like it had been sitting ready made for awhile and had been reheated.
Overall, a filling Italian meal with great atmosphere. We would definitely come back for the pastas and to check out the pizzas that caught our eye at other tables!
