“litlle italy, with a northern accent”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

an italian couple decided to live in Punta del Este, some 20 years ago. They started a route as restaurateurs, from the little Portofino at the harbor (still miss it), thru Il Baretto, a most standard pizza & pasta venue. L'incanto, an elegant villa, is their third and most trendy step. I find it a bit expensive and the guests are often too showy.

“Tres Chic”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

This is a very stylish, classy, restaurant. The dining room is artful, the service is attentive and warm, the menu has plenty of options, and the clientele is very fashionable and up market. We enjoyed the people watching as much as the food. L'Incanto felt like a happening Los Angeles restaurant with a Latin American twist. Imagine Spago in the southern hemisphere, replete with older guys with beautiful young wife's, young guys with beautiful wife's, guys with not so beautiful wife's (but with lots of botox, puffy lips, and expensive purses), and guys with beautiful children who probably attend expensive private schools. The only missing ingredient were the exotic cars out front. I suppose it kills us to show up with a "Hertz" sticker in our rear window. How humiliating! Oh yeah, the food is good too...............

“Tasteful decoration average food”
Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

The decor and atmosphere are special. You are greeted by a chorus of frogs that sound like contented cats and go into a place that is well laid out with an emphasis on wood and light colours. Service is very friendly. The food is tasty but a bit greasy.
