It opened in November. Grand opening this month. I do not know the owners. My mother took me there for my birthday. The staff was very attentive. Very nice setup with linen tablecloths and glass top tables. They have a good number of tables. They are spaced well and you are not right on top of anyone else. The food was excellent. My mother and I selected spaghetti and meatballs. There was a nice garlic flavor but by no means overpowering. The meatballs were huge and had great taste. The sauce was very good. It was a lunch portion and I still had enough left to take home. My husband had the lasagna. He was quite impressed with the meat sauce. Lunches came with a salad or soup. The manager spoke to every customer and was very genuine and friendly. I will definitely return. This restaurant would be great for any reason including special occasions like anniversary's. I don't know if they do so but it would be a great place to rent out for a party.

Normally busy but accommodating, this is a spot for locals, and offers a variety of great choices for lunch specials, and even more for dinners. Grilled Salmon, Puttanesca, Ravioli, and Chicken Francaise are among the dishes we've tried and recommend. The lasagna featured recently at lunch was a 'white lasagna' that was mostly ricotta, and not what one might expect.... More

Was staying in a nearby B&B and L'incontro (not L'incontra) was the owner's recommendation. He made a reservation for the two of us on February 15. We arrived on time and didn't have to wait long for our table. Almost immediately we realized they were understaffed. As best we could tell there were only two servers, a bus boy and... More

The atmosphere was inviting. Cloth napkins and flowers on the table, and our waiter was wearing a jacket. Refreshing!!j The menu was extensive. They offer a soup and a salad of the day. The salad was Green Bean Salad. The beans were fresh and cooked to perfection. I couldn't stop saying how good it was. For an entree I ordered... More

Traveling across State, we turned around to eat at L'incontro. A clean, neat exterior, a stand alone building and busy parking lot, told a weary traveller this was a special place. Once inside, we were greeted by the kind professional staff and enjoyed the comforting, home-like decor. The tables were spaced closely, but still comfortable for the patrons. Ah! Then... More

Beverages were promptly refreshed. There is an excellent selection of entrees. I was pleased to see that they had spaghetti and lasagne with bolognese sauce In addition to an... More

We have always visited lincontro when staying in Florida and have always enjoyed an excellent meal, however the last time we visited I was disappointed to find paper serviettes on the tables instead of the usual linen ones. It's only a small gripe but I do feel that it does let the place down slightly.

We had a three generation Valentines Day dinner at L'incontro 2/14/15. We enjoyed six different entrees with excellent reports from everyone. The service was courteous and very helpful. Highly recommend!
