We went to L`incontro Restaurant because of the reviews on TripAdvisor, and we were pleasantly surprised that the food and service was as excellent as reviewed by others! We will definitely be back AND recommend this restaurant to others.

After visiting Bok Tower Gardens, we checked trip advisor for local restaurants and saw L'incontro. It was only around 4pm, but they were open and we were excited to try this #1 rated eatery. Unfortunately it must have been an off day for the business, because it was nothing like the other reviews. First of all the warm greeting referred to by other reviewers didn't happen. Rather a man who appeared to be the manager, as he was in a suit, asked us if we had reservations. We did not and he checked his book. This was odd, and very amusing - as there were only three tables occupied in the completely open box of a restaurant - a total of five people in all were in view - obviously there was no need to "check" to see if there was a table available as if there was some rush at the door. And, in the end, the restaurant was just as empty as when we arrived. The service was fine, but the food was average. Chicken Marsala was rubbery, Alfredo w/chicken and spaghetti and meatballs both bland, plus two other entree's that didn't wow. Not sure how our experience was so far off the mark, but I would not return to this location or recommend to anyone else.

I was looking for a quiet, intimate setting for a first date and found this restaurant to be beyond perfect!!! The food, wine and ambience was amazing! The wait staff was great and not too intrusive. We will be coming back again... Very soon!

L'incontro solved a problem for me. I live in Lake Wales and it used to be a problem to recommend a restaurant in the area. Well, no more. This place is great: the food, the service, the servers, everything in this cozy atmosphere that enveloped us in total comfort. Though small, it is easy to find on the main east/west route (SR 60) through Lake Wales a little west from the shipping mall with a Publix. Actually, I wouldn't be able to assure anyone how authentic the Italian food is, but I can declare--their food is absolutely wonderful.
