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!

Everything was absolutely delicious and the service, from the hostess to Jerrold, our server, was exceptional. We take all our friends and family when they visit. It is hands down our favorite restaurant.

Wow!! This was our first visit and we will DEFINITELY be back. We tend to be picky about Italian food and this was absolutely fantastic. Ashley, our server, was attentive and friendly. The bus boys never let our water go dry. Highly recommend the tiramisu. Thank you for a wonderful experience Evo!!

I'm sorry to say that I won't be returning to Evo. The last two times I was there the food was very disappointing and the service was just as bad. It's a pity because it's a lovely space.

This was our first visit to EVO and really enjoyed the meal. The ambiance was inviting and warm. We had the meatballs for appetizer and snapper and ink pasta for our main meals. While the meals were flavorful, they didn't have a lot of spice (if you are someone who likes spice). The service was exceptional. We got the bliss cake for dessert and that was delicious (they comped the dessert since it was our first visit - a nice touch). Be prepared to spend a little more than at other restaurants in the area, but it was definitely worth it.

We have been in often and are used to outstanding service . Our server was poor and as a result the overall experience suffered including getting food that was not hot when it arrived . We would come back but likely would request specific servers in order to ensure a good experience.

Chef Eric is the best around. We started with Evo when there were 10 tables only. With the upscale and much larger restaurant, it has not lost its charm or the great cuisine that wafts from Eric’s domain. He also has the best bar/lounge in Jupiter/Tequesta.

Overly liquid saucing of two different pasta dishes. Both the carbonara and squid ink were oily or watery? Other dishes of chicken and appetizers were excellent!

We have gone to EVO on multiple occasions and have never been disappointed. The food, service and ambiance are outstanding. My wife had the Sicilian stack , beet salad and we shared squash blossoms. I had a delightful fettuccine in a light cream sauce with sundried tomatoes and peas with 4 perfectly seared diver scallops on top . Her Cabernet was excellent as was my Makers Mark Manhattan. Jessie , our server was friendly , helpful and didn’t miss a beat. We purchased 2 gift certificates for important people in our lives with the hopes they will also embrace one of the best and most authentic Italian restaurants around . Make a reservation. You will return again and again .

It was our first time coming to Evo. The food was delicious. My Mother was 90 and received a complimentary crepe brûlée. The la contessa champagne was great. The shrimp and scallop starter was amazing. The meatballs starter was a meal in itself. The salads were very good. We took our split order of lasagna home to have for lunch the following day. Our waitress was wonderful. We intend to dine at Evo again soon. Thank you fir inquiring!

I made a reservation for 5:30 through open table. When we arrived the main dining room was totally empty however we were seated in the back room in a corner between two large round tables. We requested to be seated in the main dining room but was told they were all reserved. We were uncomfortable after we sat down so requested it again from our waiter. After quite awhile he did come back and tell us they agreed to move us but we had already settled in. It seemed like it turned into such a big deal. We were treating our guests for dinner and it out a damper on the start to our meal. My thought was perhaps we reserved through this site so we got the worst table. Those tables remained empty for at least an hour and by the time we left the last table in our room had been seated.

Our appetizer came out within minutes of our handing in the menus. We ordered the special stuffed zucchini flowers and they came out cold and tasted like they were made 15-20 minutes earlier, rubbery and tasteless, along with the meatballs which were slightly warm. Disappointing to say the least.

We ordered our main course and a spoke to our waiter quietly to make sure that our meals came out hot. He apologized for the appetizer being cool. Our dinners were delicious and hot. When we received the check the waiter graciously removedthe appetizer which we had not asked for and brought us cookies with our cappuccino.

My overall assessment is not to go at 5:30 because you might get pre-prepared food and to either call for a reservation in the main dining room or put it on the open table reservation although I’m not sure that will guarantee you anything.

Our server Maria was excellent. She was very professional and friendly. The food was delivered quickly and we enjoyed the evening very much. We have dined her several times and will continue to do so. The owner,EricPetersen, is well respected in the community.
