Description: 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.

“BYOB but traditional and good Italian food run by a family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Sal plays the accordion on Sunday nights, and although we were blind-sided about one of us needing to make a quick run to the liquor store for a bottle of wine, the owners were very helpful. A special was char-grilled calamari, very tasty. The pizzas were good and really plentiful. Everything was quite tasty. It was crowded, and the noise level was initially quite high, but we felt like we were in a traditional family/neighborhood establishment. We were staying in Ewing, and restaurants on a Sunday night are not necessarily easy to come by, so this was a delight.

“Mom & pop restaurants are the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

Why do people go to chain restaurants when they can go to wonderful locally owned places like Enzo's? They are a cut above the rest. BYO!

“Delicious Italian food in a quaint family atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2011

We have been eating here for years and it is delicious! This restaurant has approximately 12 tables so dining there makes you feel like part of the family. The pasta dishes and specials are very good. This restaurant uses fresh ingredients and boasts a cheerful dining staff hosted by Anna. You will want to come back again and again.
