Fantastic family owned and operated Italian restaurant. Started our evening by sitting outside with apps and wine which we had plenty of as Enzo's is BYOB. Tried a bit of everything which was all good to say the least. Moved inside for dinner service, everyone in our party of 5 was more than happy with both the portion and flavor of our selected entrees. Since I couldn't decide between two daily specials I asked if it was possible for a special combo which Anna the owner graciously approved of...sauted soft shell crab and veal Oscar. Servers was attentive. Dining room is small but quaint in an old family style way. Only downside to the visit is the small restroom.
Cannt wait to plan a return trip.
Oh and you cannt visit Enzo's without ordering the button bread-it's to die for.
Bon Appetite

Wonderful dinner with friends. Food is superb! Chic cacciatore is a special indeed. Soft shell crab also a winner.

Wanted to find a place to eat after visiting local ourdoor museum in the Hamilton NJ area. Found this place on Trip Advisor so we decided to try it. From the outside and even the foyer, we were a bit worried. HUGE surprise inside....GREAT FOOD, GREAT SERVICE, and NICE SURROUNDINGS. Menu has nice selection including numerous healthier choices. Each meal was made to order with minor requests like extra garlic, less spicy, etc no problem. LOVED each and every dish. Pasta must be home made! Servers check in frequently. Dessert tray looked amazing but....watching the points...BYOB [we forgot!] And, check with them as they have an occasional Lobster special but it must be pre-ordered a week ahead of time....looked AMAZING. Parking in lot next door. only down side was a VERY small rest room....We plan to drive the 40 miles to return soon...it was soooo good.

Excellent traditional Italian food, fresh fish, and unique items not found elsewhere. Best to make a reservation as the seating is lmited. BYOB.

My family prefers to dine in small (mom & pop), non-chain restaurants. We believe in being able to order what we want to eat, that may or may not be exactly on the menu. We had not been to Enzo's in awhile as we live 30 minutes away which is definitely our loss. Last night I had an amazing Tagiliatelli (homemade pasta) Braised Chicken w/ Figs and Walnuts as my bride enjoyed Chicken Saltimbocca w/gluten free pasta. Dinners come with salad which our waitress was happy to place dressing on the side. BYOB which NJ locals luv. All desserts are home made. The chocolate cookie with vanilla ice cream was worth the extra calories. Enjoy
