Although many changes since the passing of the original head chief Rosa has kept the spirit alive and the service and food is still high quality with great service. If your up for pasta you found the right spot to dine!

Initial impression was slightly less than expected as the room seemed dark and at noon mid-week the place was hardly busy. However we were greeted with a smile and seated at a comfortable table. Again the menus had that well-worn look and feel indicating they were ready for replacement but the items offered on the 'Lunch' pages looked interesting and... More

Stopped here at random for a light Italian lunch. Diverse lunch menu, lots of choices from which to choose, reasonable pricing. We were shown to our table immediately. In all fairness, the restaurant was only about half full when we arrived. Our server was polite, friendly, good sense of humour and efficient. As I indicated, we wanted a light lunch.... More

One of our favorites. Always receive great food and service for a reasonable price. Never disappointed. Reservations recommended as it fills up fast. Waterloo location offers a private dining area for parties up to 27 people. (Under 20 additional fee required). Which we have used and staff were very accommodating and helpful. Would definitely recommend this for any occasion.

We have been coming to Ennio's Waterloo for 14 years and the food is always wonderful. I typically order the ravioli - they make it themselves - and the red sauce is delicious. My kids ordered pizza and lasagna and both were very tasty. My husband ordered the spaghetti and meatballs and enjoyed them very much. The service was very... More

Tonight I had the Veal scaloppini, and it was served with a side of spaghetti and a Caesar salad. The veal was truly excelent, covered in mushrooms, delicious in every bite; rich and flavourful - truly an Ennio's masterpiece. The Caesar was quite good, as always here. It was accompanied with the freshly baked bread served at Ennios, and their... More

I have eaten here a few times for lunch and for supper. They have some delicious pasta and the quality is high and also consistent. The decor is nice and it belies the location, which is on a busy street in Waterloo. You would not know it as soon as you walk in the door. If you are looking for... More

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
