From the minute we walked in, we were greeted as if we were old friends. Warm and welcoming and without being kept waiting.
Our waiter's service was outstanding. He was attentive, knowledgeable, and clearly dedicated to excellent customer service! We appreciated his recommendations, and also the fact that he never made us feel rushed. He was available if we needed anything, but also left us time to have uninterrupted conversation. We were able to thoroughly enjoy our dinner !
The food we ordered was out of this world! We ordered crab corn chowder, red snapper, and grilled veal. Everything was delicious and cooked to perfection! We were also given a wonderful piece of wedding cake and cookies, as we were celebrating our anniversary!
We tried to think of something that we didn't like about Enzo's, but we couldn't think of a thing. Our entire dining experience was so much more than we could have asked for! We'll definitely dine there again, and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for the absolute best dining in Central Florida!

Exceptional dining experience as per usual! We enjoyed the restaurant back in the 1980s when we lived in Orlando and knew Enzo personally. It is incredibly wonderful to return after so many years and savor some of the original recipes. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

I took my wife for her birthday, because we have always had great food and excellent service each time we have gone to Enzo's. We had not been in about 4 years so I was excited to go there again.
It was a hit, my wife loved the food and they made her feel like a million dollars.

Enzo on the Lake is, and has been for many years, the finest Italian restaurant in Greater Orlando and Central Florida. Its offering of fantastic classically prepared recipes with always freshly gathered ingredientsits, its great-friendly ambiance and its unpretentious, but perfect deco and setting are unique to enjoy those offerings.

High priced for lunch!
A waiter took all our utinsels saying we had already had our entrees.
We argued with him that we certainly didn't! He thought we were kidding and took them anyway!!
Out entrees came and we needed to ask for utinsels!!!
Weirdest thing ever!!

It was our first visit to Enzo's and will definitely not be our last. The meal was delicious, the service friendly but discrete and very professional, and the desserts were amazing! We really had a great evening there.

My wife and I visited Enzo's last night for the first time to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary , after hearing about its food for years. The hostess seated us promptly at a table side window overlooking the lake and greeted us with a 'Happy Anniversary". Ernesto and the entire staff were very efficient , personable and helpful. My wife had one of the specials, a Lobster/Shrimp ravioli in a cream sauce and I ordered one of the house specialties Bucatini Alla Enzo. It's was a thick hollow pasta with a sauce of proscuitto, peas, bacon, mushrooms and parmesan. It was EXCELLENT! We shared a 2014 Bolgheri region Tenuta Guado Al Tasso rose wine with dinner , followed by a complementary slice of Italian wedding cake honoring our anniversary. The coffee was excellent and also came with ginger and almond cookies. An excellent meal and we will certainly frequent again.

My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary and couldn't picked a better place. My wife had Dover Sole, the real thing, flown in from England. She hadn't had such delicious sole since our visit to Italy a few years ago. I had the Italian version of Bouillabaisse and I enjoyed it very much. The bill at the end was very reasonable considering the food, service and atmosphere.

Service, food and ambiance can't be beat. We celebrated my daughter's 21st birthday there in April of 2016, with a total of 12 people and everything was exceptional. They even welcome you to bring your own specialty cake if desired. Well when my middle daughter turned 20 just last weekend, she asked to go there as well. We had family in from out of town and this time requested the smaller dining room past the bar area, if possible. Sure enough when we arrived for our 8pm reservation, our table for 10 was ready and waiting in the room we requested. I can't say enough about the servers - or any of their staff - for that matter. They are attentive, experienced, exceptionally courteous, and efficient. Bravo to the owners and entire Enzo's staff. You will not be disappointed whether it's a date night, business dinner, or family gathering.

We went for my wife's birthday and brought my 3 month old grandson who's name just so happens to be ENZO. They were very accommodating in finding a table with enough room for my grandsons stroller, and that wasn't easy, we had 8:30 reservations and they were crowded, but they gave us a wonderful table with more then enough room for the stroller. Not only was the service excellent but the food was the best Italian food we have had since we moved to Florida 3 years ago . We all enjoyed ourselves and are definitely glad we found a great place to eat.

My daughter celebrated her birthday with myself and my granddaughter who is enrolled in Rollins College as a freshman....both of them enjoyed very much their first visit while I enjoyed my 3rd visit & I will be back for more as I am sure they will too....Our charming, authentic, Italian waiter was very attentive as well as entertaining.......

Enzo's is a time warp to and earlier age but that is not so bad. The decor is vintage but as expected and charming. The view of the lake was beautiful as always. Fortunately the hostess honored our request to be seated in the main dining room and we had a great table by a window. What was unexpected was the outstanding service by our waitress Susan. Since our past visits to Enzo's were marked with painfully slow service, I never thought I could give them five stars for service! My wife and I started with the caesar salad which was very good. I chose the Osso Buco special for the main course which was very good. However, my wife ordered the seafood soup/stew and rated it only Good. I rated our latest visit at four stars despite my wife's disappointment with her main course. Dinner at Enzo's may be pricey and the decor from an earlier age, but there is something timeless and comfortable about this restaurant. I can't think of many other restaurants in Central Florida that have thrived for so many years and that fact alone says volumes.

This restaurant never disappoints. The fish special is always my go to and each time I order it, I insist it is the best meal I have ever had. The ambiance and service is top notch and keeps us coming back year after year. Don't pass up the antipasto appetizer- that alone is worth coming for!

The service is impeccable.The servers are well versed on the menu and the wine, and the food is fresh and absolutely, delicious! Treat yourself to an amazing Italian dining experience. You will not be disappointed.
