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!

Nothing was average. The best Italian food in the Jupiter area by a mile. Zucchini flower appetizer to die and kill for. Service outstanding wine list very reasonable. A must!

We visited this restaurant for a SECOND time during the Flavors of Palm beach because the food choices were awesome. The first time we both had a salad with scallops as our entree. This time we went back for Nancy's meatballs and the short rib. Delicious!
We asked about the bar menu and the meatballs are on there also. Great specials for drinks. We will try that next time. Great place, great service, great food!

We went here for a get together with our friends from the Villages for the Flavors of Palm Beach specials.
We had the poached pear raviolis and the meatballs. WOW! Not only were they delicious, but they were a full serving and this was only the appetizers! For dinner we had the short rib, the sea scallops, and the chicken scarpa. ALL of these were incredible! They were all huge portions for a special menu. I know the Flavors end in October, so we might have to go back before then.
Wonderful dinner!

We eat a lot of Italian. I’m not saying it wasn’t good but it wasn’t unique or exceptional. The bill was quite high for the dishes we ordered.

Hubby and I don’t get out much to eat during season bc I too am in the service industry and typically we don’t have time for the wait or the crowds. This was the PERFECT time to enjoy one of our favorite local restaurants. The service was stellar, the atmosphere was beautiful and the food was EXCELLENT. I always recommend this place to my clients, friends and family on and off season. I just really love it all year ‘round!

Delicious food but hostess made us wait 20 mins when we had a reservation. She then proceeded to seat 3 other couples with reservations for the same time to then come back and apologize and seat us. We were very close to walking out but it was our wedding anniversary and we did not want to let this situation ruin it.

Went to EVO for Flavor Palm Beach and after seeing Chef on TV helping the Bahamian children of Hurricane Dorian learn to make pasta! Felt we needed to visit this restaurant. Excellent, very attentive and friendly, knowledgeable wait staff upon walking in the front door. Beautiful restaurant with excellent, quiet atmosphere. Food was delicious and surprisingly good portions. Price was good value for Flavor Palm Beach.

Food was amazing. Between the 3 of us we had 8 different items and each one was nothing but delicious and well prepared. Reservation was made though OpenTable and there was no issue when we checked in and they recognized the note I made about someone in our party having a birthday. Our waiter Gerald was knowledgeable not just about this restaurant but other restaurants in the area, which was much appreciated since we are from out of town. From the hostess at the front to the bus boy everyone on the staff was accommodating and friendly. Top notch service and staff. Would HIGHLY recommend.

Excellent as always. I only go to Evo occasionally as it is a little rich for my blood. My 3 girlfriends and I had a $280 bill with tip - one bottle of wine, 2 glasses of wine, one cocktail, two entrees, 3 apps. That being said, everything was SO GOOD. I LOVE this place. My watermelon basil martini is my favorite cocktail ever. The tables are so small, and I splashed some in my appetizer (begger's purses, so yummy), so our awesome waiter brought me a brand new appetizer. The meatball appetizer is delicious. The service is awesome - no one is ever rushing you.

My favorite way to experience Evo is during happy hour, when drinks and selected appetizers are 1/2 price, but it is not always possible, so get ready to get out your wallet. That being said, it is definitely worth it for us middle class schmucks every once and a while for a special night out, or, as a said, during happy hour. Another option is a late night cocktail and dessert at the bar. The bartenders are FANTASTIC.

Can't wait to go back. Period. That means that the food, in my case scallops, my husband had ribs, was outstanding and our waiter, Gerald was courteous, friendly and attentive. Love the look of the place too, peaceful and quiet despite a full house.

The price versus food quality is not worth the experience. As a European restaurant owner I can probably be a bit snooty about small items. The service staff was friendly and helpful, but they lacked experience. Reading specials from a card is a no go in most elegant places. I saw a few people at the next table struggling with the menu as the font and color scheme was difficult to read in the dim light. The vodka pour was very generous, and many good wine choice were available.

The food was less than satisfactory. The caprese salad was good. The eggplant stack was crispy, and the lasagna was burned on the bottom.
