Went to the restaurant to enjoy date night with husband. Ambience was average, very old and rustic. Not many dinner options on the menu, food was okay. Also felt that 150.00 for 2 entrees and 2 glasses of wine was a bit pricey. Overall experience not great.

My husband and I took our friends to Enzo's for a belated birthday and Christmas dinner. It was great, we all enjoyed our dinner, appetizers and desserts, all were great! I would recommend Enzo's for all to experience at least once. Then I know that all would become regulars like we did! We've been going to Enzo's at least fifteen years now and we love it there. Thanks Enzo's for always doing a great job, everything is always so fresh and delicious. See you soon!

Since it gets dark earlier in the fall/winter months, Enzo can have some special lighting on the outside for customers who can continue to enjoy the view of the lake and the green landscape that surrounds it even though it is dark……. the expensive dinner then becomes a package deal of good food,good view and good times...

Really enjoyed the entire experience. We were not rushed so we ended up ordering in stages. Chose the bruschetta appetizer, caesar salad, amazing entrees, and 2 desserts. Looking forward to the next time we visit !

Our wait person Kaitlin was wonderful
We had quite a long wait for our wine which is very unusual but she took great care of us and calmed everyone down
The overall experience was great as always
I think they may have been short on staff which made our wait longer than normal
We even took cookies home(delicious!!)

Every visit to this restaurant has been a wonderful experience. The window view at sunset is especially romantic and beautiful. The food has always been well prepared and excellent flavors. The staff is very friendly and professional.

Let me tell you.. living for 5 years and Manhattan there a few places that have Italian food as closely matched as Enzo's in the entire state of Florida. This was our second time there and the second time we had an old-school Italian server. The last time we were there we remember vividly ordering a very expensive bottle wine and the server without paying any attention pouring water into $180 bottle of wine, glass. He did not acknowledge that he did it in fact he actually denied doing it. We ordered a very expensive bottle of wine again and a ton of food. Everything would've been amazing had we have not been treated like the servers children the entire occasion. We had to listen to the server that was waiting on tables next to us just so we could actually understand the specials that he never actually read off to us. On some occasions the server took liberties in getting us what he decided was best for us. We saw the table next to us and get a much larger variety of anti-pasta then we did based on her actually taking the time to ask the guest what they would like. Our server was not concerned with that at all. Also I could do without him touching my wife's shoulder every single time he spoke with her. I'm not insecure in the least, but he is not her relative and certainly not a friend
If I am spending close to $500 on dinner I don't want to be treated like your child or not be given all of my choices. I will be back to Enzos as long as this guy is not my server

We had a table of four and the food was absolutely amazing. However, the service was not good. They did not seem any busier than a regular night but yet we waited long periods of time before ant attention from the waiter. Loved the food but disappointed with the service. Hostess was not very pleasant either.

Love with all my heart and tummy!! Haha! The best Italian food and environment. Always a real treat to go to Enzo's! Penne al vodka is my dish. I love it more every time if that's even possible. We had an amazing red wine called Josh. I love the server's, the house like atmosphere, the energy! All good. Years and years always good!

Have always enjoyed Enzo's for a lot of reasons, food, environment, setting, and authenticity, but was a bit disappointed with lukewarm food on our visit this week. For a $58 veal chop and whatever the sea bass was, you would expect piping hot food, which it wasn't.

I've dined at Enzo's many times over the past 30 years but the meal I had this past Saturday was over the top. The mixed grille was not on the menu but our server Ernesto made it happen and it was worth every dollar they charged. A veal chop, a lamb chop and extra large prawns with roasted potato's. My 3 children in their 20's now can really appreciate the great wine list and all the different antipasto's offered as well as the Bucatini and Dover Sole. Expect to spend $100 per person if you want to have the 'total experience' of Enzo's.

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!!
