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.

Great service, ok food

Food was ok but the service was great. I did not want for anything! The staff was very young probably high school or college age but very attentive. I would go back just for the service!

Sunday noon meal was very nice. They open at 12 and customers tricked in . In fact there were tables ready throughout our meal. Had the New York Strip and it was very good. The Sea Bass looked great and was enjoyed by my wife. Service was tip top!

My opinion, in short, is that you should get the food to go and if you do stay, don't order the drinks! The first time I went here, the service was excellent. The food was superb. The atmosphere very nice, albeit loud and crowded. The second time, tonight, was horrible. The service was subpar, progressively got worse, food was nice,... More

This small restaurant has a lot of ambience and excellent food! The food and drinks are reasonably priced as well. The only negative comment I have is that what appeared to be the owner and/or manager was quite abrupt and aggressive in assisting our waiter to serve our food. Must have been having a bad day! That won't stop me... More

This is a very nice, small restaurant. Both my husband's food and mine were excellent. Service was timely, however our waiter basically only addressed my husband even when listing the specials. That was a first since wait staff normally address everyone at the table. However, the food was excellent and I will definitely go back.

We enjoyed a great evening out at L'incontro. I chose this restaurant for my bday dinner as there were great reviews on trip advisor and I read they had gluten free options. We were all very happy with the friendly staff, great atmosphere and delicious food. I'm on a gluten free diet as I have celiac disease and chose the... More

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
