Though he's continued to refine his culinary skills for more than 20 years, Chef Enzo's mastery of Italian food was cemented at age 26, when he opened his first restaurant, Tutto Ristorante. Today, using locally sourced ingredients, he pushes his innovation of Italian cuisine even further at Enzo's Trattoria. Instead of supplying signature pastas, he gives diners a choice of 11 noodles—gnocchi, gluten-free penne, and whole-wheat spaghetti among them––and 14 sauces, including vodka sauce and housemade meat sauce.
More housemade elements grace Chef Enzo's grilled paninis, which he fills with housemade sausage and meatballs. His other meaty mains include veal scallopini topped with white-wine tomato pesto sauce and prosciutto and chicken breast sautéed in wild-mushroom blush sauce, named for how embarrassed chefs get seeing mushrooms go wild. Available by the glass and bottle, wines from Australia, Italy, and Canada complement meals, which unfold in a lantern-lit dining area where guests feast beneath brick archways and among painting-lined walls.
