So cozy, so low-key—and so secluded, you may have missed it. Down a walkway framed with greenery, housed in the Family Entertainment Center, The Italian Restaurant opens each evening for family supper, serving authentic antipasti, salads, pastas, brick-oven pizzas, seafood, and other classics­—both indoors and out.

Here, family-friendly takes on new meaning. Let the kids explore the arcade and 1,000-gallon saltwater aquarium while you relax with a glass of red. Salute.

Phenomenal restaurant. This is my fathers favorite restaurant, so we came here for his birthday with friends. Food was amazing, ambiance was amazing, and our server, Dillon, was great. He was funny and super helpful and patient for our party of 10. Overall a great time and will be back!

We like this restaurant as last time we stayed at Breakers we had a very good experience and there is certainly consistency in delivery. The food was great, the best pasta we had in a while and the atmosphere was lovely. The main course took tad longer to arrive, however the quality and taste of food certainly made up for it. We shall be back again when in Palm Beach.

The restaurant is located on the grounds of The Breakers Hotel. We found both the service and the food to be outstanding. The restaurant has a very relaxed ambiance and the night that we were there, some diners were dressed formally (jackets & dresses) and others were dressed very casual (golf shirts, tee shirts,jeans & shorts). Though the restaurant is casual, the preparation, presentation and quality of the food is what you would expect from a hotel on the grounds of The Breakers Hotel. They also have a very nice wine selection.

This restaurant was by far the worst place I have ever eaten. It maybe part of breakers & charged accordingly but I would have got better food in a fast food outlet. The food was presented badly looked like something that came out of a freezer & was put in the microwave. Shame on you breakers you need to up your game you should be horrified to have such a poor restaurant as part of your resort.

First, I read many reviews online and almost cancelled our reservation. Great restaurant for kids - there are many different playrooms and arcade in the same building. Did not find that the restaurant was too loud with kids running around. The kids menu was great - many offerings complete with vegetables and dessert all $16. The food for adults was just ok - some things were very good, most mediocre. The prices were astronomical, and we are used to fine dining. Bruschetta with 3 slices of bread was $14. ridiculous, and the bread just tasted like stale bread. The biggest disappointment was the buffalo mozzarella appetizer. It was the driest piece of mozzarella I have ever eaten. We should have sent it back. It was served like a ball that was dropped and the middle was very dry and crumbly, unlike any mozzarella I have ever eaten. The taste was so-so. Better mozzarella from our local Italian deli. Penne with vodka sauce was very good ($29) but a smallish portion. The arancini was very good. The croutons in the salad were so stale they were inedible, and the salad overall was nothing special. I think the best part of dinner was the dessert: warm chocolate chip cookies (tasted like Mrs. Fields) banana split, 'smores pie and cheesecake were all enjoyed. The total bill was $475 with tip (which they included). Considering there were only 3 entrees purchased, The price of this restaurant is totally not worth it. If you are staying on the premises, I might suggest it, but certainly not worth the visit if you are off property. If you want excellent Italian food try Limoncello in North Palm Beach. Will not go back here, but hotel is beautiful.

We absolutely love this restaurant. Even when we don't stay at the hotel, we drive up just to eat here. This time around we came up for our anniversary, this has become our trademark spot to celebrate special occasions. The food is consistently outstanding and the service team is very nice. Definitely my favorite Italian restaurant in South FL.

Over the years this has been the go-to place with kids while staying at the Breakers. Even in the midst of spring break and holiday chaos, the staff keeps its cool and consistently provides good food and service. They are very accommodating of special requests, such as preparing a dish differently than what is on the menu. And of course there is the arcade and the game rooms to keep the kids occupied so the adults can enjoy their meal - along with the little side room with the bar for an almost quiet dinner! We love coming back year after year and seeing familiar faces - like our favorite server Irene!

The service was friendly and very accommodating. Our orders were delivered promptly and the food preparation was better than anticipated. *Just be sure to understand that the atmosphere is more than “kid-friendly”... rather, it is just shy of Chuck E. Cheese’s bedlam. Many of the children happily run free range through the restaurant from their family’s table to the adjacent arcade room, outdoor play area, etc. If this isn’t the atmosphere you’re looking for I’d suggest that you go later in the evening when the younger families thinned out or go elsewhere all together.

The service was mediocre. It took too long for the food to come out. It is very kid friendly so I will give you credit for that. Also the noise level is quite loud. We have eaten here many times in the past but I didn’t feel we were given the same attentive level of service and the food after waiting so long was somewhat lukewarm. For the prices that they charge I expect more.

Good for kids. That’s why we go. Kids get Wiki Sticks and a coloring book and crayons and grapes and fruit and cheese. Food is perfectly ok - standard fare - but overpriced because it’s at The Breakers ... but for parents it’s worth the kids playing in the arcade while you order dinner and linger over your drink and appetizer and have a peaceful meal. Kids get a dessert with their dinner and then you can stop at the very nice playground to let the kids blow off steam on your way out. There is a free parking lot to the side if you are just going to The Italian Restaurant for dinner - no need to valet park.

The food was okay as was the service, nothing outstanding except for the prices. I felt like I was at a high end children's restaurant. This restaurant is located in the Breakers of Palm Beach. However its located by
the kids playground. Inside is an arcade and an indoor child care. If you have kids its great but if you are planning on a romantic dinner look elsewhere.
