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!

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!

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.

Enjoy the food, atmosphere, service and music. Many times I get tired of restaurants but I enjoy Uncle Eddies more every time I go. Have taken friends and everyone enjoys.
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.

Had a reservation and there were plenty of open tables when we arrived, but they wanted to seat us in a corner at the bar. When we said no they tried to seat us outside, which we also refused. The excuse was they had a lot of reservations - we’ll we were one of them. They finally sat us in the dining room. When we left there were still 6 empty tables. Osso bucco was average. The pasta dish was too heavy on pork. Great salad and tiramisu. Waitress provided attentive service.

Lovely evening celebrating husbands birthday. One can get salads in half portions so I got half of the zucchini carpaccio which was delicious and plenty to start. Can't imagine what the full portion is. I also got half portion of one of their pastas and my husband got a fish special of the night. We both enjoyed our meals. We then split the most delicious brownie dessert, which they gave complimentary for his bday. Thank you EVO for a lovely evening

We loved the bread, salad, cheese and oliveson the table. My clams and linguini were in an excellent wine sauce, pricey for what was involved. I tasted the cobra and I thought it seemed overcooked. The biggest problem was we had to keep asking for our waiter.
I would give it another shot, but the prices would be special occasion.

By far the best Italian restaurant in the area. Service & food were impeccable as usual. The veal chop was delicious: so tender & juicy. The rigatoni with Sunday sauce was perfect. The squash blossoms will melt in your mouth with the freshest ricotta cheese ever.

A real dining extravaganza!

Went with a party of 6 to celebrate a b-day. This was our second visit and it was outstanding. This place is hidden in a plaza but one you are there you are transported to south beach chic. Menu is fantastic. Service attentive and professional, while still being personable. Cant wait to go back... drove from Wellington to Tequesta... so it must be great! Keep up the high standards.
