Seattle >Enza Italian Restaurant
Extremely Disappointed. Being partial Italian and obsessed with Italian food, I cannot stress enough how disappointing this experience was for me. Upon previous reviews I suggested to go there for our group. Enza is a very sweet lady, but the services is slower than molasses! She wouldn't let us order our main entree's with our appetizer! She said she'd come back later AFTER our appetizer came out. We asked for bread, it was stale and dry. We were so hungry and the food was taking sooo long we asked for more bread, but this time it was actually soft. Our caprese was on tomatoe's sliced so thin you could see through them. I got soup, 2 others got the lasagna and one other got Past Al Forno (which states Are you hungry?). The portions were sooooo small! There was barely any sauce on them. The pasta for being homemade was disappointing. It took at least 20 min after she picked up the plates to give us our check. My group left there being as hungry as they were when they arrived. Anyone who knows Italian, you should be leaving the place unbuttoning your pants because you can't fit into them comfortably! I cannot see how she's stayed in business this long. I know in Italy, service is slow, but when people come out to eat, them come hungry and expect to be fed in a short period of time. I'd rather go to Olive Garden, at least there I'll get ok Italian food as well but at least I'll be full for the same price!
Citysearch Editorial Review. Many a lady must’ve been heartily welcomed by chef/owner Enza Sorrentino shouting: “Bella Donna!” with outstretched arms as they walk in the door, whether on a first visit, or the twentieth. Enza Cucina Siciliana (formerly Sorrentino) underwent a bit of a makeover in late 2009, and re-opened in January of 2010 with a different concept, but we’re thankful the same convivial, neighborhood warmth remains. In the airy, cream-walled room, you’ll now find an array of Sicilian specialties on the dinner menu, like a springtime vegetarian gnocchi, and handmade pastas with housemade sausage, tossed in tangy tomato sauces, brightened with a touch of zest. One thing’s constant: mama Enza’s renowned lasagna has always been (and will always be) on the menu. Stop in for lunch, and tuck into one of the many sweet or savory crepe options while watching Queen Anne denizens (and their four-legged furry friends) stroll by.
