Great atmosphere, great service, great food. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Special thank you to the manager that came up to our table and personally and congratulated us. I will be back soon.

Not what we had expected. I did not realize how dark and loud the restaurant would be. It was full of girls bridal groups celebrating. I felt like we were at a bar or night club, not an Italian restaurant.

The fennel sausage pasta was good, but not so good that we would want to order it again. The chicken fettuccine was really good. Also, the guava cider was delicious!

We visited EVO for the first time last night and it did not disappoint. The service was incredible - super attentive, super professional and so kind and helpful about what to order etc. The ambiance was great, the food was spectacular and the wine list superb. We had the best time and we are SO happy we found this gem of a restaurant. Almost didn't want to post because I don't want to have trouble getting a booking here next time and many times in the future!!

Very slow service and mediocre food. Didn’t honor Happy Hour price when we were sat before it was over and it took forever for server to come to the table. We used to love to go there for the Evo salad and mushroom pizza. But they changed and didn’t taste as good.

Overall it was fair. We were arrived about 10 min early for our reservation (at 5p.m.) and were seated front and center and the restaurant was completely empty. We ordered drinks and an appetizer (the fritto misto). The appetizer was great and the best part of our meal-before we were even 1/2 way done we received our meal-granted we were on a date and hadn't even sat down 10 min. I'm all for being prompt and not drawing out dinner, but it was rushed-we weren't even asked if they should take it back to keep it warm. From start to finish it was less than 40 min. They kept saying they were booked all night, but when you have reservations I would expect at LEAST an hour....

Cool spot, some of the dishes outshine the others. Gluten free penne for sub in the pasta but no GF sub for the pizza. The Campanelle pasta was amazing!

Apps were cold inside and poor service (not busy). Never asked if I wanted a drink. Manager and bartender were discussing business openly in front of customers, arguing about tip out, etc. We left after apps.

This is our favorite neighborhood spot, but not on a holiday. Food was sub-par - had to send it back; hostess down right rude; bar super-slow; waiter couldn't get orders straight. There are no umbrellas so you can't eat outside until the sun goes down, yet no indication on the website or open table. Everyone in AZ with a patio has umbrellas! Hostess refused to turn on the mister :( sigh... so condescending and arrogant.

Sat outside. Much better if you want to “ hear” the people you are with. It’s a younger crowd 20-30 for most part but if you are older don’t t let that stop you. Food is great. Don’t forget to order the bread app. Yum! Every person in our party lived what they ordered. Wine reasonably priced too. We will be back for sure. FYI no masks required

Cannot speak enough of how great this place was. From the atmosphere, to the food, to the service. And the pricing was very good too. We will definitely be going back. Also told all my friends about it.

Great selection of classic Italian dishes and some unique appetizers. Extensive cocktail and wine selection. We dined outside at sunset (less noise, more room). Great service from our waiter (Kyle). Restaurant was located on the “outskirts” of Old Town.

Have been to EVO before - but was surprised when I received the bill that they charged for olives in the martini and extra bread for an appetizer that I had already paid for - little things make big impressions - I think you should just add it to your total price and not Nickle and dime the customer. Our server Kyle was excellent and made the evening fun!

I have eaten here many times, and I really like the food, the waiters, and especially the retro booths. However, the noise level is getting ridiculous. The music is loud to begin with, then gets turned up around 8:00 p.m., when people are still dining. The crowd becomes younger, so I get that, but it would be a good idea to keep the ambient noise at a reasonable level until at least 9:00 to allow dining patrons to hear each other.
