Enzo's is a small cozy place to enjoy a fine Italian meal. It's especially a good place to take a romantic date. Often busy, you may wish to call and make a reservation. The pasta is delicious, and the serve traditional entrees. A very nice place to eat.

We were traveling through New Jersey and found Enzo's on the internet. It had good reviews so we decided to try it. Wow, wonderful food and great people. Our waitress was the best and the owner was very friendly. We will remember this one!

Had the pan sautéed soft shells. Very sweet and meaty, on a bed of sautéed spinach. Have had this dish 7-8 times, always GREAT! Also a new appetizer. Stuffed sweet peppers wrapped in bacon. Request them with bacon crispy! Service was great as usual. Place was busy!

I've been frequenting Enzo's for the past 16 years, and it's that neighborhood place that everyone wants to be. The Scozzari family has carried on the original vision of their patriarch, Enzo, under the superb leadership of his wife, Rita, and his daughter, Anna. Where to begin? This small, intimate restaurant offers diners constantly changing superb daily specials, along with... More

This restaurant is small (about 12 tables), but the service is personal, and the Italian food is even better. Their specials are really specials, and reasonably priced. We happened to be there on Jazz night, with a live jazz singer serenading during dinner. And its a BYOB.

We visited Enzos based on the reviews but were disappointed in the experience, sad to say. The salad and bread were excellent, but everything went downhill after that. Service was okay, not great. My partner ordered the special pork chop dish - very dry and no flavor. I also ordered a special - the mixed grill with a "lamp chop",... More

This venue has wonderful food every time I visit. Having said that I struggle with the noise and service. Often tables are empty but so tightly packed in it is difficult to get to your table. On each visit I've only seen one server working. This is a delicious BYOB and neighborhood gem!❤️

Always been a guaranteed good dinner here that will probably never change ! The only drawback is that it is dull and boring eating there and the tables are so close together or your sitting right next to the door ! You may be able to catch a nice night dining outside!
