Service here was excellent, everyone was very friendly and attentive. We were sat outside due to COVID and it was a cold night. They brought my girlfriend blankets to keep her warm which was a nice gesture. The food here is average, nothing to write...home about. We had the crab ravioli and the prosciutto and burrata flatbread and both were fine.More

My wife and I were attracted by the appearance of the restaurant, a beautiful and cozy place, we were welcomed at the entrance by two very nice and kind young women, we ordered lazanha the disappointment was huge, they brought us a paste with very...acid tomato sauce, practically no meat is totally no salt or any kind of seasoning, really disappointing !!More

Definitely loved the house made Tiramisu dessert - delicious and not too sweet - light and tasty! Will definitely go back next time for their desserts!

We spent the day in Carmel for our anniversary. We stopped here for a mid afternoon bite and we were so pleasantly served with a fantastic choice of dishes that satisfied our palates greatly! II highly recommend this choice, when in Carmel! My wife had...the Bronzino with black truffle puree!! To die for!!More

My husband and I had a great lunch at Enzo last week. One should not be deterred by negative reviews-- this is a true Italian restaurant, and we found the food to be excellent. We enjoyed the bread service, the wine list with many Italian...options, the Magna Grecia salad, the carbonara, and the tiramisu. Service was great-- prompt and friendly. We felt very comfortable with their COVID measures, and will definitely be back!More

I was working at the Front Desk at a nearby hotel and was used to frequently comparing restaurants and checking their Tripadvisor placements. After I visited Enzo a couple of times I was shocked to find out they were rated somewhere around the 20th best...restaurant in Carmel.. A little bit about my experience there - Straight after entering the venue we were greeted by the Maitre'D I believe, and was promptly allocated to a cozy interior table. Throughout the service the same person visited our table from time to time and was very charming as he was speaking English with some Italian phrases here and there. He literally helped mellow the atmosphere. Before our food came we were served bread and butter. The bread was super fresh and warm, as you can imagine we did ask for some additional toasts which they were happy to give us. I remember I had freshly made authentic gnocchi with homemade pesto and small pieces of some Italian meat or charcuterie (amazing!). One of my friend had Carbonara (made the Italian way) and my other friend ordered a pizza which was just fine.. Regardless, during our lunch the chef came out of the kitchen (an Italiano vero haha) and personally asked if everything was ok with our food. All in all, I loved the unpretentious atmosphere that all of the staff created, it is a small but charmingly decorated restaurant with some amazing dishes. I was always happy to recommend it to the customers at the hotel I was working at that time! :) Keep up the good work guys, greetings from Bulgaria!More

I went to Enzo on Feb 28, 2020 with my friend who is from Abruzzo Italy and we had an amazing experience. All of the staff and the owner were very accommodating and the food was incredible. When you dine with someone who knows the...food and wine so well it is an absolutely wonderful experience to enjoy such a lovely atmosphere and have such wonderful flavors:)More

Crab ravioli and papardelle bolognese were really yummy, dishes are not very large which was good for lunch. Wine was nice. We really enjoyed service. Only four stars because it is expensive. However, True friendly Italian. Grazie!!!

Just wandering through Carmel and my husband says, "hey do you want to stop in here for a glass of wine?"...that began our evening at Enzo (unbeknownced to us otherwise). Jacque, the bartender/mgr was so welcoming. We sat at the bar chatting with him for...over an hour. He had great stories to tell and recommended delicious wines. Since we were already there, I checked out the menu of this charming place and we decided to stay. We sat at the bar but they have a quaint dining room and patio dining as well. My filet mignon was cooked to perfection as were the vegetables and potatoes. My husband enjoyed sea bass and said it was delicious. An unexpected stop brought us a wonderful dining experience. Check this place out! So good!More
