We really enjoyed flat bread appetizer (really a thin pizza) and the rigatoni entree. Followed up with the lemon panacotta. It is a cozy atmosphere offering indoor, partially sheltered “alley” tables and street side seating. There is a bar and tv for sports fans to...enjoy.More

Owner/bartender ran my card for $50 before showing me an itemized copy for my two drinks which should have been $30. I brought it back to him and he corrected the issue but I am not convinced it was done on accident. I would keep...an eye on your money if you go here.More

Very enjoyable Italian inspired dishes in small tastefully decorated outdoor seating area. Met Enzo the owner who checked in with us during our meal. Salad was fresh, lemon chicken tender, well seasoned, simple and straightforward side dishes, fish was fresh, wine selection good. The accompanying...side dishes were all perfectly cooked and spiced which we appreciated. So often the side vegetables are bland or overlooked. Finished with delicious dessert, after dinner wine and espresso. The menu is not inexpensive but the quality of the food makes all superb. I commented how fresh the dipping olive oil was for the bread. The owner said it comes from Carmel Valley. Nice touch.More

I am sorry to say the food was awful !! The waiters unprofessional. The place bad - no atmosphere. Don’t go ever. Pizza was hardly edible !! The clientele was iffy .

We found the place by chance, an unplanned stop in Carmel in our way to Big Sur. Excellent branzino and typical Italian manners. En excellent choice for casual dining.

Ate at Enzo Ristorante and was somewhat surprised how the waiter asked us if we wanted water and then to come to find out that the bottle of water was $8.00! A little sneaky! We ordered two (2) salads and although the taste was ok;...the price seemed very high ($17.00 & $18.00) Definitely not going to eat there again!!More

I can say you get great service at this place , They put the water bottle on the table for us but the waiter was there to fill my glass all the time. The food was good also !

We were hungry and walked in on a whim. Best move we made while in California! We were warmly greeted and seated outside. The waiter and I exchanged greetings in Italian and it was off to a great dining experience. Wine was excellent-pizza, to die...for- Calimare-moaning good- Pesto gnocchi, dear God- Tarmissu, unbelievable!!!! I’ve been to Italy several times and in my opinion, Enzo is a close as it gets!More

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
