This is a very classy Italian restaurant. The prices are very good. Food was excellent. Service was spectacular. The owner or manager was on the floor helping out with service during the rush. The Chicken Marsala and the ravioli were both delicious. I had the mushroom ravioli, which is served with an Alfredo sauce. I asked to have it served... More

I always order my favorite, chicken parmesan! I have to be pretty hungry because that, along with salad and a side of pasta, is a huge lunch. Although I stop by here only occasionally, Michelle (wait staff) always remembers what I like. She adds a friendly, personal touch which is the icing on the cake.

Who knew Lake Wales is home to a wonderful Italian restaurant? L'incontro brings the quaint setting of an upscale restaurant to Lake Wales and offers flavorful food and top notch service. Some must tries include the tomato caprese appetizer and the string bean salad. I get the veal parm with a side of fettuccini Alfredo as my entree. It's fantastic.... More

Our party of three visited L'incontro prior to a concert at Bok Tower Gardens. My wife had the lasagne, which was baked with a tasty Bolognese sauce. I had the L'incontro pasta - fettuccine with sausage, garlic, tomatoes, basil, and cream. My daughter has the mushroom ravioli in Alfredo sauce. All were delicious. Service was excellent. All in all a... More

Wow what a great little restaurant! My wife and I were told to try this place when we were in Lake Wales. I had the stuffed pork chop and my wife had a personal pizza. The food was spectacular. L'incontro's offers a high end experience for a budget price. We could not have had a better dinning experience for twice... More

It was our first visit. We did not feel welcome when we arrived. The hostess acted as if we were bothering her. We ordered drinks then were forgot about. I asked another server for bread and a drink refill that took 15 min. to get. By this time, I was not enjoying the visit and were ready to walk out.... More

Went to dinner with Mom and Sister to this local favorite. We all had the cod fish special which was delicious. I had green bean salad as well.. very good. They had steamed clams and mussels which I sampled..also good. The service is slow in a good way we think. They take time between courses..we aren't rushed at all. Very... More

This lovely restaurant is one of our family's favorites. They have consistently wonderful food, and awesome service! If you are looking for great Italian food for lunch or dinner this is the place to come -- you won't leave hungry! I suggest calling ahead for a reservation at dinner time just to be on the safe side, we always do.

We opened Friday January 14, 2011. We are a Italian Restaurant serving fine Italian food, our staff is trained to serve ladies and gentleman at L'incontro. Guest love our food and our attentive service and the one thing they always say as they are leaving is "can't wait to come back".
