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!

Food was outstanding,Chef even cooked up a appetizer dish not on menu. Got there early and was able to enjoy a leisurely and relaxed dinner with long time friends without feeling we were being pushed out . Our friends sent note thanking us for introducing them to the best Italian food they have had in years,

We have been coming to Evo for years. My daughter and I dined here Saturday night, and we were seated in the section with our favorite waitress Malissa. Malissa goes above and beyond to ensure everything is perfect. The food, service, and ambiance was wonderful. We always have a great time at Evo.

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.

The service was extremely slow. I ordered a medium well steak and came it came out rare. I tried to get the waitress attention but unable to find her for over 20 minutes. Finally when I flagged her down, she took it back and 25 minutes later it came back well done and extremely dry. I wouldn’t have a problem with a well done steak but the quality of the meat was just Medium cut at best. The waitress tried to make up the experience with a free desert which was very thoughtful. But again it took over 20 minutes for the desert to come out. All in all the experience was not worth the value of a fine dining restaurant.

EVO is spot-on perfect every time we dine there! I highly recommend getting a reservation and getting there a bit early to enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail at their beautiful bar our lovely outdoor patio. The bartenders are very knowledgable on the extensive wine list & they have amazing specialty cocktails. The wait time can sometimes be a bit long, but that's because diners love to linger here. Chef always has great specials from things he locally sources, but the standard menu items are always perfect. Ask to be seated in Melissa's section if you can... she's the best waitress in the place! We brought guests from Chicago who are world-travelers and have dined at some of the best spots in the world, and they raved about our neighborhood Italian spot!

Huge well mixed cocktails. Friendly and courteous service. Wonderful appetizers( zucchini flowers and also the artichokes. Osso bucco deliciously served. We sat in the garden where the noise level was perfect and the surroundings was also romantic. This was our first visit there and the hospitality was gracious. Kudos to
Madeline our server for the special touches.

Previously dined at this restaurant a while ago. Quality is good but not exceptional. Restaurant is a little noisy in the back dining room. The alternative is seating in the bar.
My wife had the lasagna and I had the chicken francese. Both dishes were good but not great. Wine list is good but a little pricey.

We had a great time. The wines were good and fairly priced by the glass. We had the octopus appetizer and enjoyed that. Service was good and the food was also good.

So I am a repeat customer who drives 35 minutes + passing a boatload of other notable restaurants for EVO. If you have not been, give it a try.... you will be sold. You would never know its there unless you seek it out. Hidden in the rear building of a strip plaza. But once you enter you feel the chic atmosphere of south beach. Food is second to NONE.

BURATTA PUGLIESE as an appetizer is a must! BOLOGNESE & BRACIOLE CON SALSICCE E POLPETTE were our entrees. Drinks were poured well. Service impeccable, especially how busy they were on a Thursday night. Cant wait to go back!

Food was maticously prepared. The meatball appetizers were the stars at our table, the
Calamari less so. The volitini was superb. Our guests enjoyed the rolletini. The service was impeccable. The noise level was tolerable.

The quality of the food has definitely fallen off here. I don't know whether they changed chefs? One of our dishes was almost too tangy to eat, and the other was a chicken dish that was really really dry.

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.

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!
