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.

Went with a girlfriend for a "catch up dinner". Had not been here for some time. Service was wonderful- very attentive yet not at all pushy. Homemade cream of spinach soup was a 10. My entree of veal with mushrooms was perfect, and the pasta side was perfectly cooked. I left happy. However , my friend's pasta dish with salami... More

The staff were great but the decor was shabby. Paper napkins and mismatched/chipped dishes. I order raviolis which were ok. The cannolis were terrible.

We have been dining at Enzo's for years and every meal has been a pleasure. Their menu includes not only deliciously prepared Italian favorites, such as chicken cacciatore, osso bucco or eggplant parmesan, but lighter dishes such as swordfish and vegetables, cod française or scallops. Service is beyond polite; we feel that the staff recognize us when we arrive, and... More

I've been going to Enzo's for years, as my grandmother lives within walking distance. Whenever I visit her and NJ, we usually go to Enzo's since it's so close by. We went recently and my meal was inedible. It was simple: penne with pesto and grilled shrimp. The pesto was unbelievably watery (it was like pesto broth in my bowl)... More
