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.

L'incotro is worth going out of your way for, if you are in Polk County. A mere 30 minutes from Winter Haven and 45 from Lakeland, this is a spot for true Italian Fare! Perfect service, excellent daily specials, fresh ingredients, good wine list... L'incontro has it all!

This restaurant was an excellent choice for a fancy Italian meal. It was beautifully decorated, very nice atmosphere, sophisticated, and food was delicious. A wonderful place for a romantic meal but my family went here for lunch and it was great as well, even for my 8 year old even though more suited for adults than children. No children's menu... More

I think I may have gone on a bad night. My husband and I went out to dinner at L'incontro on 7/17. We ordered fried calamari and fried zucchini as appetizers, and I ordered the lasagna as my entree. I also ordered a glass of merlot. It took us a while to get our waiter to take our order, and... More

We are originally from the NYC metropolitan area and are great foodies. L'Incontro could take its place on NYC Restaurant Row with success. It is our #1 recommendation to our guests and we have never had a single complaint. Being a small town, we are lucky to have this caliber dining experience available to us.

After several years of searching for something new and exciting, we discovered a Lake Wales jewel. Stylish exterior, and welcoming entrance into a classy dining room and bar, made a strong positive first impression. The menu is varied and comprehensive, as is the wine list. A nice chianti did not overpower the fresh and tasty cabrese salad that preceded a... More

The food is always wonderful. The wait staff is always courteous however I think they might be understaffed at times.

The bad attitude started when we got there. We reserved a table for 4 in a quite corner. When the guy finally came to seat us he put us at the worst table in the house, shoved next to a column by the front door. There where better tables available. The music was way to loud and right on top... More

This restaurant is well worth a visit. If you go once and live in the area you will definitely go again. It is well appointed and not overly large so it has a cozy feeling. The service and the food are excellent. I had the Chicken Sorrentino with a side of mixed vegetables and enjoyed every bite. My husband had... More

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.
