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!Continued

- Fantastic Find!FLGalDined on 10/9/2014This was our first time at Evo however far from our last! The place itself is absolutely stunning tucked behind a strip mall. The staff is overboard friendly, great wine list and above all the food was fantastic. The Happy Hour has to be one of the best around. I am bringing a group of 16 back for dinner next month. I can't wait for them all to try this place!!Special Features:
- dissappointedLuvgourmetDined on 9/25/2014The appetizers were great but the main course was inedible, as the veal was pounded to death and the breading was everywhere and excessive. The dessert was a a mess to eat. Beautiful berries with delicious ricotta cheese sauce, perfect as is but it was smothered in tasteless, dry and messy pound cake pieces. the dining room was much too bright and the decor is really incongruous, cold and bland. The original design at the old location was lovely and invitingSpecial Features:
- CristinaVIPDined on 9/19/2014I went for the first time to EVO and selected from the Flavor Palm Beach menu. Not impressed. If this is a sample of their best, I don't need to go back.
- ambiance, but disappointing foodgardenregDined on 9/18/2014This place was highly recommended by our friends. It had a lovely ambiance, however the food was very disappointing. I would not return.
- Very disappointed in every aspectkeenpiVIPDined on 9/13/2014From the moment we were received til the end of dinner we were disappointed.
- Great findKateDined on 9/11/2014Visiting West Palm Beach and found this gem listed in the restuarant week advertisement. Food and service were both excellent. The waitress asked if we were new to the EVO and because we wer she brought us a sampling if their special olives and cheese. Just delicious! Saved the card for our next trip!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- too slowOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 9/6/2014We arrived at 6:45. The waitress seemed rushed. We waited a long time to finally order and then receiving our food was super slow. We did not get our meal until almost 8:30. By that time I was famished. The food was delicious but seemed very over priced. I would have preferred to be able to order in a timely fashion and receive my food much quicker.Special Features:
- Enjoyable againOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 9/5/2014Was glad to find the Summer Sampling Menu. All food we had as part of this menu was very good except for dessert...it was sub par I am afraid to say. I always enjoy the atmosphere...perfect lighting & decor for a special evening. I do want to mentions that we really do not like the new set up for the bar area with the rounded banquettes.....that whole area feels strange now whereas before, it was classy & elegant. I also do not like the fact that you can't really get a seat at the bar for a drink....not that it's necessarily busy with bar patrons...but taken up by people eating there. It leaves you awkwardly hovering in that empty space behind them....not a good vibe when I'm paying $14+ for a martini, I'd like to enjoy it.Special Features:
- Bad foodOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 9/5/2014Very disappointing. My pasta dish was undercooked and inedible, my friends dish was supposed to be a veal scalloping dish, instead it looked and tasted like a stew. Items not adequately described on menu, in addition to being terrible.
- Almost like being at a friends homeFlavorFanVIPDined on 9/5/2014Quaint and cozy with a fireplace, feels almost like a friends house. Above and beyond excellent service from hostess, bar, and waitstaff. The "Flavor Palm Beach" menu was just delicious (they change it every week) The squash blossoms, the snapper, the stuffed artichokes... all prepared perfectly.Special Features:
- EVOtequestagalDined on 8/30/2014We celebrated our 45th anniversary at EVO. The staff was efficient and friendly, the food was OK, but the prices were over-the-top.Special Features:
- A bit rich...JanFromJupDined on 8/28/2014Food was very good but a bit rich! I would ask about the sauces next time.Special Features:
- Very SpecialJacquelineDined on 8/16/2014The food, service and atmosphere are fabulous. We are so lucky to have them just up the street in Tequesta!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- evo did well by usjerzyDined on 8/7/2014first 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.Special Features:
- GolferGolferDined on 8/1/2014Bar 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.Special Features:
- food reviewmaizieDined on 8/1/2014FIRST 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.
- Evo- fantasticotandjDined on 7/26/2014Superb dining space- indoor and outdoor. Excellent wine list ( by the glass , half, or full bottles). Very good menu, executed well.Special Features:

- Awesome!CharlesDined on 7/14/2014The 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Delightful experienceYummyinmytummyDined on 6/14/2014I 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Hidden Gem4bdaydinerDined on 6/7/2014Tucked behind a shopping plaza is Evo, a fine dining Italian Ristorante. The menu requires concentration as it is quite detailed.

- So soOnlythebest1VIPDined on 3/29/2014I 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 restaurantFredDined on 3/24/2014Evo 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.Special Features:
