Eno Pizzeria & Wine Bar | Coronado, CA

Although it certainly factors into the price of their pizzas, it is hard to beat the location of Eno Pizzeria & Wine Bar within the famous Hotel Del Coronado of Coronado Island in San Diego County.  The Hotel Del Coronado, or “The Del” as it is often called, is a very luxious resort that has been featured in a few movies and has had many famous guests over its long history.

Eno Pizzeria & Wine Bar obviously has an impressive wine list, and they also serve a few beers.  They have an indoor seating area as well as an outdoor one that I imagine is fairly popular given the San Diego-area climate.  You won’t necessarily get a full ocean view in their outdoor seating area, but that is only a few steps away.

I sampled three pizzas at Eno’s Pizzeria & Wine Bar; their margherita, their spicy pepperoni, and their housemade meatball.  The pizzas weren’t exactly what I expected from a place that labels themselves an artisan pizzeria, but they were still pretty good.  They weren’t what I expected because they had thicker crusts and more cheese than typical of artisan pizzas.  All three crusts were lightly charred and were fairly light and airy.  A common theme amongst all of the pizzas was that they had a limited number of large toppings.  

Housemade Meatball Pizza

The housemade meatball was my favorite of all three pizzas, and its meatballs were almost sausage-like.  The spicy pepperoni was good as well.  With it, I was again surprised by the greasiness of the pepperoni for an artisan pizzeria, although that was not a problem for me.  I was somewhat disappointed by the margherita as it was essentially a cheese pizza with a few large basil leaves.  It was the worst offender in terms of the large, yet limited toppings.

If I am ever fortunate enough (read: wealthy enough) to stay at the Hotel Del Coronado, then I would certainly dine at Eno Pizzeria & Wine Bar again.  Otherwise, it is still a good option for pizza and wine on Coronado Island.  Just don’t expect the pizza to be too much like other artisan ones you may be used to.
