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!

Several weeks ago we had a great meal and fantastic service. Its the reason we went back so soon. This time the food was just average. That type of inconsistency makes it a no return for us as the food is moderate to expensive in price. For the pricing, inconsistency can not be part of the equation.

Have been there before temperatures always cold inside. I ordered Chicken Scapparell and was brought Chicken Francias. When I did get the correct dinner I could not tell what part of the chicken was served on my plate, it was a very busy dish with chunks of chicken and bones, looked like all thighs to me. Not in a hurry to go back!

we come here often. Love it but last visit was mediocre . Not sure if the chef was off that night but everything was OFF.
Our waitress, Melissa, who we have had several times, was great, but the timing was ridiculous.
We were one of the first people in dining room (5 of us) and our entire meal took 1.5 hrs.
Sauce seemed a bit salty, tagliatelle w beef was soupy.
Not a great experience.

We tried this restaurant on a whim one night and are so glad we did. Exceptional food. Exceptional service. Evo serves not just some of the best Italian food I’ve had, but some of the best meals I’ve had overall. I cannot recommend Evo highly enough.

Exceptional . Exceptional. Exceptional. Really great food and presentation. I have traveled in Italy for 25 yrs and this restaurant is authentic in every way.
The "sunday sauce" pasta is incredible. Rich, deep and perfectly slow simmered like my family makes. Great wine selection with large pours.
Location is puzzling, crammed in the back of a strip center but inside is lovely.

We'd come for the first time a week before and this time brought a couple friends back. I don't think I can say enough good about Evo. The service is warm and friendly while still professional and attentive. The bar drinks were interesting and well crafted/balanced. The execution of classic Italian/American cuisine was flawless. In a geographic area where it's easy to throw a lot of money at a mediocre dining experience, this one was defined by care and quality throughout. I'm sure we'll be back. Soon, I hope.
