Description: Welcome to Enzo's. With a Sicilian Heritage and Passion for Italian food...
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!

Would not recommend this restaurant to another friend or family. Bathroom too small for one person, food homemade but very basic, waiter clearly not aware of basic customer service.

Enzo's is small but efficient. It is no smaller than an authentic Italian restaurant in most Italian cities and towns if you have visited Italy in person. The room can cozily accommodate a romantic couple's dinner or a larger family party. BYOB...The décor has been recently updated; but you're not eating the décor---You are here for the FOOD!!!

"Cozy" and "intimate" are words I've read that describe Enzo's, but what they mean to say is "tiny" and "you can hear the people across the room in conversation." Food was just OK. We wouldn't be back based on those two things. There are lots of other good Italian options in the surrounding area.

A small Italian restaurant located in Lawrenceville, it is a Family run business. On the weekends you will need reservations, the food has been very good. It is not a good place to go with a large crowd since it is very small inside. If you can put up with being crowded into the small place you will love the... More

Awesome 3 course meal for $30 including a tender herb stuffed sirloin! Can't beat that labor day weekend deal. Owner Anna personally came to each table to check on them. 1st time here and was very impressed. Try the stuffed zucchini flowers if you go this time of year when they're in season. Will definitely go back.

This is not my first review of Enzo's, a great BYOB family run Italian restaurant. I have never had a meal there that was not great. We tried one of their specials, Italian style roast duck, was quite good. also had the chicken parm, which was spectacular. They also do one of the best jobs on soft shell crabs, have... More

After a day visiting the Seward Johnson Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton NJ we were looking for a quiet place for supper. Online we found this Italian Restaurant tucked away on a quiet street. It was like one of those little family restaurants tucked away in Rome. We shared salad, soft shelled crabs (in season) and gnocchi in fresh pesto... More

Soft shell crabs are in season, and Enzo's does them Francese style They are thoroughly cleaned and done in an egg wash sautéd with white wine. They are among the best I have had. Everyone else had their regulars, the charcoal grilled pork chops, calamari, plus one special, monk fish was also very good. Recommend very highly.
