Old Boca restaurant. Groupon
Old Boca restaurant. Groupon gave us an abbreviated menu with a good selection of their food. Their bread is amazing, that probably sounds strange, but I LOVE bread and its quality was an indication of things to come. Salads were good, my dining companion had duck which she declared to be among the best she had ever eaten. The lobster ravioli was good, but not outstanding. The dessert we wanted was not available. What we had was fine, but probably didn't provide a good test of the kitchen's capability. An interesting take on Italian food. There are better Italian restaurants out there, though its pricy, it's worth a try.

Good homemade preparations
Good homemade preparations with much less (unnecessay) salt included, a welcome feature. My salmon was fishy tasting, suggesting it may have been around a while. Other dishes were delightful. Breads are great, from some nearby bakery. Overall, this is a higher priced restaurant but perhaps with great potential and certainly refreshing as a small, non-chain slternative off the beaten track.

What a fabulous place for
What a fabulous place for a special occasion. The service is attentive, the food is wonderful and what an array of different dishes. I can see why they were awarded the Open Table award for 2012.

- A great find. Host/owner
- A great find. Host/owner very pleasant and accomodating. Food was outstanding. The best Osso Bucco I have ever had. The house Rigatoni with boar meatballs was very tasty. An overall super experience. We really liked the intimate and homey atmosphere. The owner takes great pride in his restaurant. We will definitely go again.

Magnifico, at last 100% genuine
Magnifico, at last 100% genuine Italian cuisine and an intimate, homey environment. More like dining at a friend's house than a restaurant. Hope this place doesn't get too popular. They currently are on Groupon. We're going back again next week for an encore.

1st courses and pasta dishes
1st courses and pasta dishes were outstanding, but veal we had was dissapointing--quality of veal excellent, but limone had no lemon flavor and marsala had no marsala flavor.

We found a "gem"
This is a hidden gem in a town filled with great places to eat. Service was great. Food was outstanding. Do not give five stars but just had to this one time. Going back in three weeks with friends.

Once again, Marco and his staff gave us a memorable evening. This is authentic Italy, highly recommended to anyone in the Boca area. Great choice of entrees.

Romantic Night for Two
The food was good with a very good wild mushroom soup. Quaint, and Friendly. Very Personal with a No Rush Attitude which is exactly what I had in mind. My Love and I Truly enjoy the "No Rush" attitude of this establishment. It was the perfect place to sit and "Enjoy" each other's company. I have No Doubt that we will return.
Thank you for helping "US" to make a Wonderful Memory.

The place looks like a yellow shack from the outside but once inside everything transforms. Delicious food every time . Worth a visit.

Best Italian in Boca Raton
I come to this restaurant very often, and all time meals are excellent. This restaurant is for anyone who wants to eat quality ITALIAN food.

excellent food...huge portions
We shared a Caesar salad...it was massive and literally enough for 4..,
Then we shared veal limone..again it was enough for two.
The coup De gras was the seafood risotto, which was too die for...4 people could share this as a side .we shared it as a main course and still took 1/2 home.
No room for dessert..coffee was steaming hot..ended up with burnt tongue.
Will we be back? Yes yes yes

Why did it take me so long to try?
this restaurant?? The service was excellent. The food fresh and perfectly prepared. It was nice that they allow you to do a 1/2 order of the pasta in case you can't make up your mind

It was a quiet night for the
It was a quiet night for the restaurant so Marco took away our menus, asked us what we like and made us a wonderful 4 course dinner . Appetizer, salad ,entree & killer homemade chocolate chip ricotta cheesecake to finish it off. Each dish was better than the one before and 4 of us went home very happy. Thanks Marco, see you soon.

Remarkable menu, great food!

Old School Italian
I had heard that this restaurant was amazing. The service was outstanding (the restaurant was almost empty, it was a weeknight). The food was interesting (wild game, burrata). It is very nice, but I didn't LOVE it. Homemade pastas, unique menu items.
They make you feel like family, which is a major plus in my book. That being said, I'm not sure I would hurry back. The prices are high and the food did not stand out. I wish I could rave about it because the little house is adorable and they obviously care about their product.
