About EVO 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!

Took my parents for my mother's birthday. First time. Immediately impressed with the sophisticated ambiance of the place. Somebody took great care in this restaurant's design. Felt like a venue for a high end engagement party, comfortable and welcoming. The staff was superb. The reservation was honoured immediately, no wait. The food was outstanding, We had two appetizer's, the muscles and the clams. Good portions, perfectly executed. The waiter was helpful in his descriptions and recommendations. It was clear that he knew we would be leaving happy and satisfied. We had the veal chop and the filet with gorganzola. Excellent, and fairly priced. Not inexpensive, but worth every cent. We had home made desserts and coffee. The waiter surprised us by offering one dessert with the compliments of the chef as it was our first time. A very nice gesture, and an overall outstanding experience. We will certainly come back.

As always, excellent. We ate outside in gazebo, lovely evening. Zucchini flowers, bronzino, chicken piccata and pasta with lots of shellfish were all delicious. Our guests were very happy.

We were visiting my in laws in Jupiter from the NYC area and they heard great things about EVO so we decided to try it on our last night visiting. I have to say the food was very good, we had the calmari appetizer, eggplant rollatine , zucchini flowers and salad. Everything was perfect. We then had the pasta bolognese, the carbonara, the grouper special and linguine with clam sauce. It was delicious, but more importantly our server Melissa was beyond helpful. She was patient and very knowledgable about the menu and the wine list. She was upbeat and professional the entire evening! We would go back just because of her level of professionalism and infectious smile. Thank you for making it a great evening and we look forward to coming back!

Our food was wonderful; our server Gerard excellent. My concern was the noise level was over the top and impeded conversation among our party. For me, that altered my dining experience.

Arrived and was seated immediately. My wife and I ordered the Sunday Pasta. Pasta had plenty of pieces of pork & sausage with a delicious tomato gravy (sauce). Evo's is pricey but worth the entree and trip. You must make a reservation or the likelihood of you getting in is scarce.

We had the special veal tips. It was worse than leftovers. There was very little veal lots of risotto and a not very tasty sauce. Quite frankly it was mush. My friend lives here and recommended Evo and we were extremely disappointed.

Dining room and bar are both comfortable. Dining room can be a bit noisy. Decor is average as is the food. Wait staff is reasonably attentive. Prices are extremely rich for what I found to be average food. Overall a very average culinary experience for which you pay a premium price so value is missing.

Coral was very pleasant and efficient, she called to confirm our reservation for two and promptly seated us upon arrival next to the fire place. We ordered cocktails but felt rushed by the waiter to order appetizers and dinner, which by the way, was delicious. The Shrimp Scampi, a meal in itself, three large shrimp over tuscan bread in a fragrant white wine garlic sauce with cherry tomatoes and sweet green peas, yum. We also ordered Garden fresh eggplant rollatine, light and a perfect serving! The Pollo Francese was equally naturally light and perfectly complimented with the full flavour of the risotto! Sunday Sauce dish, order every time!

For the past 3 years this has been our favorite Italian restaurant.
Five of us went on a Monday night and I was embaressed to my friends for bringing them here.
The service was sub-standard and the food was just mediocre.
This was not the Evo of the past. Maybe it was because it was Monday night and they had fill in staff and secondary chef - I certainly hope so.

Evo Is a bit higher priced than general in South Florida but worth it in food quality, creativity and service. Servings are generous and there is a fairly elegant atmosphere. We will surely return regularly.

You can talk in this restaurant. It is not too noisy.

We found a great Italian Resturant! Service by our very attentive but discrete sever named LightBourne “LB” was excellent !She was very informative and provided tastes of wine when we could not decide from all the items on the menus .The meatballs are worth the trip alone ! It is not inexpensive but worth it !!

Delicious food with fabulous, attentive service. Special surprise touches included a sparkler on top of desserts although we barely mentioned we were there for a special celebration for our guest. Considerate service and attention to your personal food preferences set Evo's ahead!
Chef Eric and server Melissa are the very best in our experiences.
