Enzo's Italian restaurant finds a home on Highway 98

It may have a new address, but it's still business as usual at Enzo's Italian Restaurant — and that’s good news to the Italian restaurant’s many regulars.

Now in its seventh year, the family owned and operated business moved from Highway 393 to its new location at 3906 W. Highway 98 the first week in February this year.

The new location not only provides a larger kitchen and dining room, but the roadside visibility helps to attract new customers, said owner and chef Denise Harrigan.

"Some people have come in thinking we're a brand new restaurant," she said. "And our regular customers come in saying 'We're so glad you're here, we thought you left.'"

Harrigan hadn't always set out to be a chef, but it was always a dream of her husband Daniel to own a restaurant, she said.

With Italian parents and grandparents, it was only natural for Harrigan to share her culinary talents through authentic Italian food. And it turns out the local community is a fan, with regulars frequenting the restaurant throughout the years. Harrigan equates the restaurant's individuality and popularity with her dedication to fresh ingredients that are cooked to order.

"We don't pre-make anything," she said. "Everything is fresh to order since day one. We're peeling the eggplant and frying the chicken on the spot."
