"Still Field to Table 3 Decades Later"Welcome to Enzo's. With a Sicilian Heritage and Passion for Italian food, It was always the dream of Vincent Scozzari Sr., "Enzo" to have his own restaurant in the place where his father and mother (Nicolo and Anna Scozzari) had an Italian deli in the early 1900's. It was Enzo's goal to have a place where his family and friends would feel at home, bring their own wine and enjoy the finest of homemade Italian Specialties. With the help of his Wife Rita and his Daughter Anna, this little 48 seat restaurant, Enzo's La Piccola Cucina" (the little Kitchen) opened in 1983 at this location. Enjoy our specialties - Northern and Southern Italian cooking, we also offer a wide assortment of the traditional Homemade Pastas, Veal, Chicken, Fresh Seafood, Steaks and Chops, which most of the recipes are family traditions. The Family at Enzo's takes much pride in the freshness and originality of our food. For that reason we would like you to relax and enjoy our cozy atmosphere as we prepare each of your dinners to order with the freshest seasonal and locally grown ingredients available.We also offer a wide assortment of the traditional Homemade Pastas, Veal, Chicken, Fresh Seafood, Steaks and Chops, which most of the recipes are family traditions.Hidden away in the south end of Lawrenceville, NJ Monthly readers voted Enzo's "The Best Undiscovered Restaurant in Central NJ" - We are one of Mercer Counties best kept Italian restaurant secrets!

Food was awesome. We had cardones for an appetizer. egged, breaded and fried, not often found on menus so we were excited. And they were delicious. (They are a green vegetable, look it up). A beautiful salad comes with your entree. Fresh greens, sprinkle of blue cheese and a nice vinagrette. Veal chop entree cooked to perfection with a side... More

As first time diners at Enzo's, we had a great experience. Enjoying the traditional dinner of the seven fishes during the Christmas season, we were treated like family. Each course was presented beautifully, the food was excellent and left us longing for the next delicious course..Looking forward to dining here again to sample more from their menu.

Anna and her team made our daughter's sweet 16 party a night we will never forget! The service was impeccable. And the food was outstanding! Anna let us customize our dinner menu for thirty hungry teenagers. The family style dinner was amazing. The vodka rigatoni, the fresh bruschetta and the chicken parm my favorites.

Enzo's, is magnificent and my favorite dining experience. The owner, Anna, uses only fresh ingredients. If it doesn't come from her garden she takes advantage of seasonal offerings from local businesses. All meals are prepared to your preference and served at the correct temperature. The menu offers something for everyone's palate. Steaks, chops, seafood, chicken, veal, pasta and a variety... More
