    Staff does a nice job of recognizing us as return patrons. New furnishings are lovely and as always Kevin is the best! Great for a pizza and cocktail or the veal milaneze is to die for with a great glass of vino! Busy time of year, lots of action to observe. Thanks to the manager for the dessert on the house to thank us for coming back!

    I really cannot think of a more kid friendly restaurant with Adult food that is not on a Disney property. This place has two kids playrooms viewable from the main dining area and a secure arcade right down the hall. There is also a basketball court and a playground outside. The food was better than average, but expect Palm Beach prices. I would highly recommend this place for families, but would steer clear if you are trying for a romantic dinner.

    We were staying at The Breakers. and the fact that your children can hang out at the kids center nearby, and let you finish up your dinner in peace is a definite bonus!!! Our appetizers and entrees were very good. The salad was a bit over-dressed, so request dressing on the side. The prices were reasonable for the location.

    I was attending a conference at The Breakers resort and a colleague was in the mood for Italian. The restaurant is a short walk from the lobby, so very convenient. It is also attached to the childcare center of the resort, so be warned. The service was excellent - warm, friendly and attentive. We were seated next to a couple with three energetic children, which didn't really allow us to discuss much business over dinner. The food was fantastic - prepared perfectly and just as described on the menu. Pricing was expected for a nice resort restaurant. Overall, I would return, but just be particular about where I was seated.

All day at the beach and pool and a 5 min walk to dinner! Found a great little bar in the same building with a great bartender ! Great conversation! The Italian rest. is hidden in an a out building enclosed in the rain Forrest but we loved it! !

    We were disappointed. Since it was at the Breakers hotel, we were expecting to be wowed. That was not to be. It is directly next to a children's play area, so the noise was quite loud. The food was good, not great. The server never knew who got what dish, so there was a great deal of "who gets the short ribs". this happened for all three courses. We will not be returning.

    Energetic noise level doesn't describe the ambiance of the arcade and playroom adjacent to the restaurant. The Italian restaurant is very child friendly and there is no place to escape the noise. We went for the Flavor of Palm Beach $35 price fixe menu offered during September. The food is only slightly flavorful.On this night arugula was abundant. It was an entire salad with a couple of mushy (out of the can?) peaches and it also served as the bed for my salmon entree. Simple trattoria style food without the trattoria prices. My husband had the short ribs that he said were overdone and dried out. Not a great place for an Italian experience unless you think Olive Garden is great Italian food.

    Food was very good. It is located next to the family entertainment area (playground, inside and out), It is extremely kid orientated. If you do not want a lot of kids running around while you are having dinner, I would suggest not going there. We were not aware of this and a little disappointed. I do not mind kids with my dining experience, however, not in a playground atmosphere.

    The Breakers is a first class hotel and they have some first class dining options but "The Italian Restaurant" is not one of them. The food was very good as was the service but it felt more like a Disney family restaurant. The restaurant is in a separate building and a playground and a basketball court are just outside the door. Inside, the two dining areas are separated by a large children's play room on the other side of a large glass wall. There's a game arcade down the hall. Great for families, very good food, just not the romantic fine dining experience we were hoping for. For such a beautiful Italian-renaissance style hotel one would expect an upscale Italian restaurant on the property.

    I made reservations at The Italian Restaurant with high hopes. Although the food was good, it was definitely not Breaker's quality. Everything I've ever encountered at the Breaker's has always been over the top and I did not think the food lived up to the Breakers. It was a family atmosphere, with good service but the food was okay.

    Definitely a place to go with young kids. The restaurant is part of a larger family entertainment center so if you can relax about letting your kids run back and forth to your table (or if you can cope with other families doing so) this is a fun way to enjoy some adult dining time with your kids in tow. During the daytime it feels a little dark inside but there is outside seating. The food is perfect for families, good choice of Italian family favorites.

    We met three families - all with teen aged kids. Stayed in the bar area and had a great time. Food is marginal at best, but the service was great and the venue works when you want kids to be able to walk around and not just sit at a table for a long time. They need to work on a healthier, better menu. The one they have is dated, but for the right occasion, I would return.

Example is shrimp scampi, which was tasty but thick and dark brown. Because of location, prices are high. Dinner for 3 adults (3 glasses of wine) and 2 kids was around $215.

    A very kid-friendly option at the Breakers Hotel. Available to locals too. Only negative was the continued up-selling by the waitress knowing we had a 20% add on for our group as a tip. Quite annoying. Otherwise, the kids had a blast, and the adults had a decent meal while they played elsewhere.
