Just had a delicious meal at roots Italian kitchen. A new restaurant in east Boca. We had the salmon with sautéed spinach and the glazed balsamic chicken over linguine. Both dishes prepared fresh with excellent service. Look forward to returning in the near future to try some different dishes. Add this to your must try list.

I don't know that this area really needed another Italian restaurant, but this one is really quite good. In our party of four the three other friends each ordered the same kind of fish but each with a different preparation. All four of us were completely happy. My one negative is that this area can be tough for parking but, eventually, we always seem to succeed.

First of all...very clean, fresh and organized.....and the food was definitely delicious.
We had the grilled octopus which was so tender..not over cooked at all.
The mussels were also grilled and the brown gravy that accompanied it was very tasty and different. Usually they are served in a red marina sauce...but no complaints here !!!
The snapper franchise was so tender and just melted in your mouth.
Definitively going back again.... and the service was perfect !!!!

We had dinner at Roots last night and was rather disappointed given the earlier reviews. First, service was very poor. It took about 1 1/2 hours to finish the meal and we had no appetizers or dessert. I had the spaghetti and meatballs. 2 of the meatballs were dried out as if sitting under heat lights for a while. My companion had the Jumbo shrimp which was just ok. A bottle of chianti for $39 was overpriced for the quality. We will not be returning.

Good Afternoon Bob,
Thank you for your review. Waiting one hour for your food is not acceptable. The fact that you found your food to be anything less than perfect is also unacceptable. We are sorry for such an experience and if you would give us another chance, we will make sure to make things right!
Thank you!

We had an unbelievably delicious meal from start to finish. Caesar salads, truffle burrata with Roma tomatoes and eggplant rollatini. Every bite was great. Chicken Marsala, pesto gnocchi, chicken parm and rigatoni bolognese were all amazing! The staff was attentive during entire meal. The chef is amazing and nice to talk to. The best Italian in Boca, no contest!
