It's now called Enzo, The menu kept the best dishes. The bread and dip to start are a winner. The staff are so friendly! They added a wine bar and it adds great energy. If you've been to Italy, this is just like any small eatery there. Classic dishes, great wine, warm, and relaxing. If you want hipster, dark room,... More

My wife and I went to this place for lunch. We took an outdoor table under a lemon tree on the back end of the restaurant, to enjoy the nice weather. I started with a cream of leeks, so delicious that my wife regretted not ordering one for her, and then a tasty bowl of tagliatelle alla bolognese. My wife... More

Found this place (which is called Enzo now, I believe) on a little wander in the town on a lazy afternoon. Looked at the menu and seemed good enough so decided to return that evening for dinner. Staff were welcoming and chatty and once food arrived it was all decent stuff. Wait staff not overly attentive (for example, never refilled... More

I am a local and have been dining at the Patisserie Boissiere for years. Located on Mission between Ocean and 7th Avenues, it could not be more conveniently situated. It offers a broad selection of concoctions my favorite being their splendid Boeuf Bourguignon. A huge bonus is the dining room is quiet which makes it possible to enjoy conversation without... More

I'll start off by saying that I believe this place is now called Enzo's and it's deff not "permanently closed" as trip advisor and Yelp are saying. I am Italian and know amazing Italian food ... let me just tell you this meal BLEW ME AWAY. I wish I lived closer so I could go back (on the east coast).... More

First I have to say, not sure if the name is Nico's or Enzo. But stopped in here hungry and tired after walking around to galleries. The warm fresh bread served with their "secret sauce" was something so delicious, I couldn't stop thinking about it. The next day after hiking in the morning, my husband and I wanted to go... More

My wife and I agree that this is the best ambiance in Carmel if you are looking for a quiet and romantic place to dine for a date night or anniversary dinner. They have a cozy fireplace inside that warms up the place and makes it feel very special. I ordered the crab ravioli and WOW! I ended up ordering... More

We stopped in here for lunch and sat on the small patio which was a little too sunny but was beautiful. Service is great and the pizzas are delicious!
