The perfect Italian restaurant. What I especially like is its classic menu, not loaded with a lot of off-beat and trendy concoctions. Perfect classical Italian cuisine, excellently prepared. Wonderful wine list as well.

Enzo and his Staff create a beautiful Italian evening for you. Close your eyes and you're in the northern Italian countryside of Veneto, half way between Venice and Milan! Skip the 'brand-named' and higher-priced wines, and enjoy Enzo's Family Red directly from Italy. The recipes are all classic cuisine but don't hesitate to ask for exceptions or substitutions, as anything goes with a custom flair to your desire. Simply delicious!
Check out the recreated Piazza or cortile, in the bar area. Look up and imagine you are standing in the courtyard between little Italian houses. Check out the wine-cellar for your next family function, awesome atmosphere.

I went for dinner after finding myself hungry after a salon appointment in Narberth. I live in center city and tend to dine in places within walking distance of my residence (where I’ve lived for a decade) . It was a pleasure to find fine dining outside my normal haunts. The staff was welcoming and helpful but not overbearing, and my seafood over linguine was modified without complaint and delicious. I’ll definitely be returning!

We were there for a birthday celebration. The food and service was amazing. I loved the lobster bisque so many pieces of lobster in it. The fried calamari was also fresh and lightly breaded

Wonderful service, asked about a dish that may have been on the heavy side, the server made it into an appetizer for me. Was not on the menu like that. Very attentive with out hoovering. Had heard about this restaurant for years and always heard good things about it and now I know why. Definitely plan to go back.

A neighborhood gem. We are semi-regulars. We have never had a bad meal there. The service is extraordinary. We love the Dover Sole...a little pricey but completely worth it. Go have some of the best food and service in the Philadelphia Area!

My wife and I love this place. The baked clams are the best and my wife and I had the Veal Milanese and the fish Special - Mahi-Mahi. Both were well presented well and tasted amazing! Ezo, Dario and the entire staff are so professional having done this for years.

My boyfriend and I came here for our anniversary. The food was excellent and the service was great! I really can’t emphasize how fantastic the food is. The cooks are quite talents. They serve large portions so we will be enjoying this tomorrow as well. The dining area was clean, bright and quiet. We will definitely be returning for more dates!
