Although located in a strip mall, this restaurant closes itself off from the parking lot and busy highway with curtains that run from floor to ceiling. There are two, joined, dining rooms. It wasn't busy when I arrived for dinner. Neat ambiance. White tablecloths. Walls adorned with large pictures of Mediterranean cityscapes. Soothing soft background instrumental music. Beautiful Peruvian lilies... More

Me and my wife arrived on a Tuesday at 8:36 PM. The posted hours are until 10:00 PM. Upon arrival, there were 3 tables occupied out of about 20. The woman stated "I think our chef left already" (which would be impossible as 3 tables in mid-meal). Then she went to back, came out and said "yeah, he left" (She... More

I am so happy we went here for dinner. It is in a strip mall and I have to admit I never would have gone, but our neighbors had been there and highly recommended it. Cute interior, white table cloths, clean and neat. There are two sides to the dining room. We ate on the left side and when we... More

This family owned restaurant has been a favorite of my family and friends for many years. The food is well prepared and reliably good. The veal Kristy is among our favorites. The service is excellent, however, be sure to ask how much the specials off the menu cost to avoid unpleasant surprises-yes, we were surprised by an entree ordered by... More

Six very particular eaters, read picky ;) , enjoyed ALL our meals! The steamed clam appetizer and smoked salmon appetizers were wonderful. Caesar salad was very good. Three had the snapper special. It was the best fish I've ever had out, maybe even in. Kristy's Veal was delicious. And Kristy was an excellent waitress. (She's the owner's daughter. ) Her... More

With all of the great restaurants we have in downtown Delray Beach we were pleasantly surprised to find this gem in a strip mall off Federal Hwy near the Delray/Boca border. Once again, the TripAdvisor were right. The food was very good as was the service. The menu selections were pretty standard Italian fare. Everything we ordered was freshly prepared... More

Great Italian food in a strip mall, what a surprise. Arrived a little early and was seated immediately. Walking in you think you're in the North End of Boston and the food is just as good. Very old school Italian.

My family and I went to Il Grasole last time I was in town, and i have to say that I was not that impressed. What they claim to be Italian, really isn't it's more of a mix of French Italian. Overall the food was fair, but a bit overpriced in my opinion. The service was good .With a multitude... More

We went with 2 couple to try this place, after reading the reviews. Most every dish was excellent, One little complaint and I should have called the Maitre d' lady,and told her As she came to explain the dishes. the Canellonis did not have the marinara sauce on top with the bechamel as decribed in the menu. The Sweetbread Veneziana... More
