Came here for lunch- everything was outstanding- we had pizza, sandwiches, soup, entrees. I will come back for sure. The owner is very friendly- they offer bread-making classes which I would love to attend. Hard to find- back a walkway next to a bank. Search for it and you will have one of the best meals in the Strip. Small... More

My husband and I went here for lunch on Saturday (Valentine's Day). I lived in Italy when I was little and I'm always searching for authentic pizza, which is nonexistent where we live. It was very cold out and snowing and the owner welcomed us in with warm words and open arms, even though the vestibule was a little crowded.... More

Yesterday my girlfriend and I went to Enrico Biscotti's cafe for valentine's Day. It was a great time. It was a huge family style seating experience. It was a 6 course meal that started with Caramelized onion goat cheese flat-bread. We next received a lobster tail and then an arugula salad with strawberries and lemon vinaigrette. The next course was... More

If you are looking for a tourist trap then this is not the place for you. You enter into a mysterious walkway which in turn becomes a piccolo grotto, a bit gentrified but more akin to places found in Rome or Sicily than what one expects to find in the strip district. There are a few tables, the art work... More

Very authentic Italian! You feel like you're in Italy with the open kitchen and brick pizza oven. There is not a "wait list" so be patient if they are busy, it is a first come first serve. Absolutely worth the wait.

We had lunch today at Enrico Biscotti Café. We had pizza and pasta and both we're excelent. This was one of my best pizzas this year. Since, it was Christmas Eve the strip was crowded. This was our first time at Enrico Biscotti Café but not our last. enjoy!

Our first time here, and it will be our last. My boyfriend ordered the pasta special, lamb ragu. It was very thin and there was no meat visible at all. And it had a hair in it. I ordered the beans and greens. It was a huge mound of bitter greans with very little beans. The worst beans and greens... More

Incredible. Pesto chicken sandwich was awesome. Fig jam pizza was incredible. This place rocks! Prices are low too. Pesto sandwich is big enough for two to split.

Over the years we enjoyed so many "First Friday Dinners" with Larry, owner and chef of Enrico's. The back of his shop in the Strip District only holds about 35 people. He goes shopping early that morning and purchases the freshest food he can find. It's a 5 course meal. The menu is unknown until the time of arrival..It's a... More
