Some of the best Italian food I have had in Boca. I am Italian and from New York and this meal was quite a surprise. Looking forward to going back. I ordered fried calamari as an appetizer and the coating was fabulous. The coating was crispy and the calamari were tender. My husband had eggplant rotating as an appetizer and it just melted in your mouth. We both ordered veal.....him Parmigiana and me, Francese. Both dishes were fantastic. We indulged with a dessert of profiteroles.......they were unbelievable. Light, fluffy, and delicious. Owner are hospitable, friendly, and delightful. The atmosphere inside is old school and welcoming.

The Bolognese sauce is the best in Boca and the owner and his wife couldn’t be friendlier or more attentive. Intimate dining and good food makes it a frequent dining spot.

Couldn’t find this restaurant because it’s hidden behind the CVS shopping center on Camino Real and Dixie Hwy in Boca, but it was well worth the trip. The restaurant is quaint and old-fashioned and I felt like I was walking into someone’s home in Italy. The owners make you feel welcome and the service was truly accommodating. I’m an Italian from NY and used to very good Italian food. The food was fresh and delicious and the prices were reasonable - especially for Boca. I’m going back and would highly recommend that you try this hidden gem.

I'm an Italian-American former Brooklynite who was seeking an authentic Italian restaurant experience in this area of south Florida. After trying many "Italian" restaurants in Palm Beach County, I became discouraged. But I FINALLY found THE place. It exceeded my expectations. I felt like I was in a trattoria in Italy. If you are reading this review because you are trying to make a decision ... just stop reading and GO. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.

We continue to enjoy excellent meals from this lovely neighborhood Italian restaurant. Regardless of what we order it is always very enjoyable. Tonight my wife had their sole and it was terrific. I ordered the Chicken Piccata and it was delicious. As always very attentive service where the husband/wife ownership team carefully accept reservations so that the restaurant never gets too crowded at one time. If you are looking for excellent food, served by the owners and want very fair pricing then this should not be missed.

Love the fillet of sole.......why isn’t it on the menu?
We are greeted at the door with a hug or friendly greeting.
Food is always delicious, bread is crusty, pasta sauce is very tasty.
This is one of our favorite restaurants.

Chicken franchese was good. Sole Franchese was mushy and the salmon special was very mediocre. The pasta side with oil and garlic was terrisble. The pasta with red sauce was ok. Poor selection of wine by the glass. Service was fine. Ambiance is not good - looks old.

I wish I could give this restaurant more than 5 stars. It is the best Italian restaurant in Boca. The food is the finest. The appetizers ( eggplant, meatballs , salad were outstanding and the entrees are absolutely the top. The francese ( chicken, sole, veal ) is the best I have ever tasted....sauce done just right. Pasta was perfect. The service is friendly and excellent; very congenial owner. can't wait to return ( BOSTON DINER )

We typically go weekly to this gem which Roberto and Lenora work so hard each day to provide an outstanding meal to their guests.

I haven't written a review in a while so thought tonight I would do so following our meal.

From arrival there are no proprietors as friendly and welcoming as they are. They greet you with a big smile and they do this for all that dine there. Service is personal, friendly and attentive. Food is always delicious and they will customize as needed based on dietary needs. There are fancier and more expensive places in the area that we also frequent but if you are looking for outstanding food prepared and served by wonderful people that truly treat it as they are welcoming you into their home, this is one not to be missed.
