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.

You don't expect in the quaint town of Lake Wales to discover the best Italian food you've ever had. My boyfriend got the combination plate and said it was the best Gnocci he'd had and my ziti blew me away. The service was prompt and pleasant, nice atmosphere and the food was amazing. The next morning at our bed and... More

We have patronized this restaurant a number of times over the past two years and will definitely return again and again. Having traveled extensively in Italy, the food at L'incontro rivals the restaurants in Italy. The menu is compelling and the specials are hard to say no to. Pricing is very reasonable, the food is world class and the wines... More

I was excited to try this restaurant but the experience was not good. The restaurant was very attractive on the inside. I ordered the stuffed manicotti. The bottom of the pasta was not cooked. When you have to use a knife like a saw to cut pasta, that is sad. Some of the inside of the pasta was cold. The... More
