can’t thank you enough for playing during our meal, you exceeded our expectations we had the best time and you made it so much fun.
I’ve had so many requests for your details, which I hope you don’t mind me passing them on. Sorn Castle are telling all their couples about you too, they loved you!!

Roberto Enzo u were absolutely out of this world playing after the Ceremony and throughout dinner. So much so we had the Conga going on between courses!! I have never laughed liked that in such a long time!

Dear Roberto, what can I say! I don't know where to begin!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our daughter's wedding a day to remember! I have been inundated with text messages of appreciation of your music and the wonderful day we all had. Even the management at Crossbasket were amazed. My sister and brother law live in Canada and they said they would fly you over if their son gets married one day! It was truly magical.
Thank you so, so much Roberto and hope to see you again soon in one of the restaurants you play in.

Hi Roberto thank you so so much for coming and playing at my party.
You made the night, fabulous music.
Thank you so much for everything yesterday - you made Laurina’s wedding so very memorable for us and I have had countless guests thanking me and commenting on how fantastic it was thanks to the atmosphere you created.
You really made the day for us
Thank you so much.
Chianti Restaurant review
A NIGHT in the shadow of the Kelpies ended with memories of the Rat Pack in the casinos of Monte Carlo.
Chianti music man Roberto Enzo missed the chance to play in the backing band of Frank Sinatra when Ol’ Blue Eyes sadly popped his clogs.
Roberto was riding high in April when he won the gig in the South of France only to be shot down in May when his idol was called to play his last concert at the Pearly Gates.
Oh well, That’s Life.
Roberto, from Venice, gave up a sterling career as a session musician to stars such as Sarah Vaughan and Sammy Davis Jr after falling in love with Scotland during a holiday to these shores.
He plays Chianti on the last Tuesday of every month, a fact of which my mucker Scooby and I were oblivious when we walked into the place and found it so rammed you’d have thought Dean Martin’s estate had offered the residents of Falkirk a free night on the fizz.
for afternoon tea in Edinburgh this Mother's Day Roberto was clearly the draw, although the food played a major supporting role at the restaurant, opened for the last three years just off the slip road of the M9.
Roberto’s flowers to throw at his feet while DJ Scooby, fresh from a top 10 last month in the European dance charts, was adding drum and bass in his head and dreaming of another Ibiza floor filler (incidentally, Scooby has just decided to write his autobiography. Can any friends who know what he was doing between 1991-2008 please drop him a line?).
John Gibson: A bit of a squeeze with Roberto Enzo
Now he tells me.
He’s the greatest accordionist I’ve heard, the more with Tito Burns no longer with us, but Roberto Enzo, below, had me believe his skill with the instrument was honed in East Kilbride, where he lives. Little did I know, though it’s not beyond belief, that he was taught in Venice, his home town.
He was world champion by the time he emigrated to the UK and he, for a long time, had a Monday night residency at Giuliano’s in Leith, on the Shore.
Says the multi-talented Roberto: "I’ve been here some 20 years, virtually as long as Giuliano himself.
My favourite gig, although I put myself about every night of the week, to Falkirk, Kirkintilloch and Bridge of Allan.
Roberto was classically trained but he is, too, a swinger.
His repertoire on Monday included The Way You Look Tonight, Isn’t She Lovely and For Once in My Life.
It was Edinburgh College psychology student Sara Kechida’s 18th birthday at the next table.
The striking brunette slipped me a piece of the cake.
So it was a good night for me altogether. The music, like the celebratory cake, was good enough to eat.
Come and hear him...
The accordion will be intoxicating.
