Description: 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.

We are from Montreal Canada and are used to very good Italian restaurants. L'Incontro compares with any of them,service is excellent, atmosphere is very quaint and the veal dishes are particularly well prepared i.e served thinly sliced with light sauces. We highly recommend. This was our experience last year and this year.

We wanted to dine at a white table cloth restaurant for our recent anniversary. Here in Lake Wales, FL we found L'incontro. What a pleasant surprise. The meal started with a basket of warm bread, accompanied by red dipping sauce and REAL butter, delightful. The salad, tasty/tender greens topped with carrot curls and a winning dressing. No iceburg here. My... More

We thought we went in very late at 3:30 pm for lunch but few have few more people walking in after we were seated.Food was exceptionally good, service could have been better. My water was never refilled until we were almost about to leave. The people who worked all looked as from Spanish/Mexican descent...which isn't a problem for me just... More

My husband and I went here last week. We have been here many times with a very good experience, but this time was horrible. We asked for bread four times before it came. My water was never refilled. My husband waited thirty min. for his dessert. I called the manager today and his comment was what do want me to... More

If you want a quiet, elegant restaurant in Lake Wales this is the one! The service was excellent, food was very good, and prices were fair for the quality received. We were celebrating my husband's birthday with friends. This is a restaurant where you can actually have a conversation without having to speak loudly. Restful and wonderful ambiance. We would...

From the moment you're greeted to the moment that you walk out of the door there is no wondering if the staff care for the guest or not. They do. Out of many places to eat around the area, this one shines above the rest. The quality of food is superb. The staff is wonderful, really. The atmosphere is authentic.... More

It has been a while since I have eaten here and improvements have been made to the restaurant because a vehicle crashed into the front. The dinning room looks great , and there seems to be expansion to the rear . Our meals and service were great . The food is consistently good!
