“Good food, service and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Had a fantastic meal here. The service was attentive without being intrusive and the restaurant is lovely - modern and welcoming. The chicken in a creamy mushroom sauce was delicious and the seasonal vegetables cooked to perfection. The desserts were decadent (but I wished we'd shared one!) We'd definitely go again.

“Not memorable.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

OK. We wanted a meal before the cinema on a Saturday night. Arrived at 7pm. Very clean and warm on a cold January evening. Had heard mixed reviews, but wanted to try it. Waited ages for a drink. The calamari starter was the frozen variety. Sardines were fresh but bland and tasteless. Pizzas were ok, but soggy in the middle. Total cost about £20 with drinks. Complained to the Manager/Owner, who refused to take the Sardines off the bill. His comment was that his Pizzas are the best outside of Naples. JUST PAY THE BILL! I found him very arrogant and patronising. Very lacking in customer service skills. He probably doesnt care, because he thinks business will always be blooming due to location on Westover Road.! Well I am not sure about that! There was a queue to get a table for Wagamama and Prezzo is just 5 minutes away. We often arrange restaurant trips for the theatre between Matinee and Evening performances. Will be looking for somewhere else for our clients to eat. Your loss Enzee.

“A lovely Italian in a town where there is so much choice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

We went to Enzee on a quiet Wednesday evening in January - we did book, although it wasn't really necessary.
The restaurant itself is very well presented, with sections being partitioned off with hanging drapes - very unusual, but a really nice touch.
The service was great, very attentive. They were very accommodating for our pizza choices, and were happy to change the toppings to meet our tastes.
The food (we all had pizza!) was great - although the restaurant was quiet, we were happy to wait, as freshly cooked food is worth waiting for!
As mentioned, we had very attentive service - we had 4 check backs while eating - this got a little irritating, but something as small as that won't really ruin my opinion of the place!
We were promptly offered pudding, but refused, and asked for the bill, as we needed to get back to our cars - but the pud selection looked great!
Overall a lovely evening, great food, and brilliant service. It's a shame this restaurant has received negative reviews for something as small as waiting for a table. This is only the sign of a popular restaurant.
I highly recommend visiting - a lovely Italian in a town where there is so much choice, but this one is worth a visit!
