A word from L'incontro Italian Restaurant
L’incontro is an Italian word that means, “The Meeting Place.”

Located in Lake Wales, the heart of central Florida, is L’incontro Restaurant, “A Place Where People Gather to Enjoy Classic Italian Food.” Our family’s interest in Italian cuisine began in the 1960s when my uncle immigrated to the United States. He worked hard to bring other family members to the States to live the American dream. Now, our family includes about 160 people, mostly living in New York and Florida. Four of my uncles are now Italian cuisine chefs or own their own restaurants. Through the years they have cooked for many famous people. Oprah Winfrey, the President of France, and other well-known celebrities have enjoyed their old world-style dishes that showcase the variety and distinct characteristics of Italy’s regional cuisines. “The journey from humble beginnings of washing dishes in fine Italian restaurants to owning an Italian restaurant hasn’t been easy…but it’s definitely been worth it.”Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Food was amazingly delicious and fresh!! Everyone loved it!!"

  • "The noise made by a table of 12 right next to us ruined the evening. We had to talk so loud to hear each other, and understand what was said was intolerable. I was disappointed in the food also. I had calamari which was so bland, I added salt, which I never do. I was very disappointed because I'm trying to find a decent restaurant in my area."

  • "We have dined here many times and food and service have been consistently good. On our last visit with a group, one of the orders came out incorrectly. Rather remake the order, it came back incorrect a second time. Our group member accepted it rather than wait again. Mistakes happen. We will continue to dine there and recommend it."

  • "The food was great, but the service was very slow and impersonal. It appeared that the service got worse as the restaurant filled up....understaffed?"

  • "This was our first visit to L'incontro Restaurant, and we based it on reviews found on the web. We were extremely happy with the service, the surroundings, and were impressed at the extraordinarily cleanliness of everything on the table - the stemware sparkled. I tried a special of the evening, a chicken dish with red skinned potatoes and red peppers. My husband had the linguini with homemade house sauce. The food was wonderful! The true excellence of L'incontro is the combination of their freshly made food combined with their wait staff. We will certainly be going back, and consider L'incontro a neighborhood gem!"

  • "Visiting the area for my husband's High School reunion and needed a place to eat dinner on our first night. Found this wonderful gem online and decided to try it! So thankful that we did! Best veal piccatta I have ever had,and I have eaten at some of the best restaurants in this country! Even my hubby's spaghetti was incredible! Would go back anytime!"

  • "This restaurant is a gem in an area with few quality restaurants. It is an Italian restaurant with quality and service that could be dropped into Manhattan and would be successful. Chef qwned and with very fine service."

  • "Needed a lunch location between the East and West coasts of Florida for a family meeting. Found this and reserved on Opentable. All worked well - the $9.99 lunch special was good value, and the pasta excellent. Restaurant full with groups of 16 or more, but service was friendly and hardworking."
