A word from EVO Italian
EVO, short for evolution, represents a dream inspired by my mother to bring the familiar feeling of family to you, by showcasing my Italian home-style cooking from the freshest ingredients incorporated into my family’s recipes that have been passed down from many generations. My Sicilian mother and grandparents raised me to respect the heritage and tradition of the Italian culture. The draw of family brought me to south Florida where I opened Evo to continue to share my family’s secret recipes and the warmth of the Italian way of living. Through hard work and perseverance I climbed the ranks of some of the most well respected and popular restaurants in New York so that I can bring you Evo. So please come and join us. Sit back, relax and be part of our family. Evo, my dream come true!

    first time to evo, well known as fine Italian style dining and they did not disappoint. Nice surroundings, busy bar scene even on Tuesday night off season. Tried the special menu since the choices were great and represented wide sampling of the menu. Food was nicely done, service was great- informative, happy to see us, attentive but not hovering.

    Bar was excellent. Restaurant decor less than expected for price. Not really Italian. No character. Stuffed peppers were cold and raw, "light " battered snapper was heavy fried, gelato was nothing special. Go for happy hour and half price bar menu.

    FIRST visit to Evo. GREAT ambiance and waite staff. Deicided on preset menu. Ravioli, followed by salad, bread, was very good to taste. The main entree of veal was less than stellar. Too much sauce, veal was tasteless and grizzly, ate very little.. Cost $39.before tax and tip. Don't think I'd return as there are so many great restaurants to choose from in Palm Beach area that offer better food and value.

    The food is extraordinary. Surprising to find such an exceptional dining experience in its off the path location, but well worth the effort to find it. The service was five star, the menu extensive and authentic. The wine list is good, but pricey, so next time I would see to bringing my own bottle if they allow a corkage fee...I forgot to ask as I was so busy enjoying the fare.

    I took my mother here for her 70th birthday and they gave us such nice service. The waiters and everyone there was so in tune with everything that was happening. At then end they brought out this beautiful array of deserts with "Happy 70th" written on the plates. They made everything so special and of course the food was divine!. We all had such a nice time and they were also so patient even with us running late for our reservation and our friend arriving late as well. I would go back for a special dinner in a heartbeat!

    Tucked behind a shopping plaza is Evo, a fine dining Italian Ristorante. The menu requires concentration as it is quite detailed. The food is excellent and not your typical Italian fare. Quite pricey but lovely decor inside and out.

    I heard a lot about this Restarant and was a little disappointed on how long it took to be served. I know that we were warned about ordering certain dishes can take a while but we sat down at nine and it took and hr and a half to eat. I ordered chicken catchitory and the chicken didn't seem to have a lot of meat on the pieces. Strange. Overall not so impressed that this place stood out

    Evo is a very attractive restaurant and the service is first class. However the food was good but not great and very over priced. $15 for a ceasar salad? There are too many cheaper and with better food than Evo. Sorry but I wouldn't go back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 1/11/2014
    Four of us dined on a Saturday night and each ordered a different dish, 2 from the "Specials" and two from the regular menu. The starters were just OK and the veal was the worst pick of the four entrees. I was told it was to be served with escarole and white beans, which were barely present and served under an excessive amount of the mushroom sauce. The veal was unmemorable. Our server, while very friendly, didn't return to the table often enough as water glasses were never re-filled, second round of drinks not offered until we were well finished with entrees. As we consider ourselves "foodies" and dine out at least four times a week we were astonished as to why this restaurant gets such wonderful recommendations.

    EVO in Tequesta, FL far surpasses many top-rated NYC Italian restaurants where we have dined! Extensive menu and specials as well as their wine list makes this an establishment that we return to time and time again. Well-trained and caring staff cater to diners needs without hovering.

    We were seated by the fireplace which was decorated perfectly for the holidays. We requested an appetizer portion of a risotto that was on the entrees and they promptly accommodated and it was the best we have had outside of Europe. Seriously. Veal entree was "just ok". Bolignaise was unbelievably fabulous and I get it every time now that I have discovered it. After dinner, had a glass of wine and cigar by the fire pits....perfect. Was surprised it was as quiet as it was.
