Smells, tastes and feels like Italy. We love this place. It's not just the food (which is some of the most delicious Italian food we've had)... it's not just the atmosphere (which makes me think I should have been Italian)... it's the story too. Go to the Fairway Rd location and read Ennio's letter. What a guy. His wife was... More

We made dinner reservations for 8:00 pm New Years Eve 2016 and were seated immediately. The restaurant was full, the staff were busy serving tables, yet everyone was very pleasant and made us feel at home. Our server was very nice, didn't rush us in making a decision on drinks or meals. We could choose off the regular menu, which... More

This is good Italian food. Not spectacular but good. Great for groups. Nice atmosphere, good staff. Do not let the strip mall like location fool you. This place is solid.

After trying so many different Italian restaurants, I can finally say that Ennio's is the place for a fine authentic Italian. Try their best hire sauce seafood pasta and their Zaafaran pasta. Incredible!!!!

Came to town to celebrate my daughters birthday. We had reservation for 5:30. Main courses arrived at 6:50. We couldn't get our waters re-filled, couldn't get the hot sauce when we asked, no one asked us if we wanted the bread basket refilled... when we asked what was going on with the meals we were told that there was a...

I am a cook and I know good food when I have it. Sometimes I don't even go out because it can be disappointing. Ennio's was an exception. The pasta was fantastic. Went with 3 other women and we all had a different pasta - beef, lamb, chicken, gnocchi. All were pronounced excellent, prices were fair, portions were large and... More

And yes, it was delicious !!! There was a group of us ladies, for an early supper, and we had a mix of different pastas, as... More

Family of 5 dining at 8PM Sunday night. Felt like we came too close to closing time. At 8:30 I asked them to turn the music back on. Food was great (veal parmesan, marg pizza, etc). Got the "How is everything" when we were almost finished our meals and the wine glasses all empty. We would have ordered more if... More

I was not that hungry so I ordered meatballs from the appetizer menu. the four big meatballs came with the best garlic bread I have ever had, and it was crunchy. Seemed like a good deal for the price. I really liked the pesto-like dip that came with the bread before our meal arrived. Very tasty!
