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!

Several weeks ago we had a great meal and fantastic service. Its the reason we went back so soon. This time the food was just average. That type of inconsistency makes it a no return for us as the food is moderate to expensive in price. For the pricing, inconsistency can not be part of the equation.

Have been there before temperatures always cold inside. I ordered Chicken Scapparell and was brought Chicken Francias. When I did get the correct dinner I could not tell what part of the chicken was served on my plate, it was a very busy dish with chunks of chicken and bones, looked like all thighs to me. Not in a hurry to go back!

we come here often. Love it but last visit was mediocre . Not sure if the chef was off that night but everything was OFF.
Our waitress, Melissa, who we have had several times, was great, but the timing was ridiculous.
We were one of the first people in dining room (5 of us) and our entire meal took 1.5 hrs.
Sauce seemed a bit salty, tagliatelle w beef was soupy.
Not a great experience.

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.
