    Very pleasant owner/chef. Some what overpriced. $22. for zucchini flower appetizer which was good but not worth $22. Would think twice about returning.

    I loved the small size of the restaurant. It was easy to have a conversation. The waiter did a wonderful job. Other than that I would not return. I will send a private message to the restaurant to explain.

    Family run with love and expertise, Il Professore is the highlight of Italian dining in Palm Beach County. My dinner of stuffed Zucchini blossoms, the finest ravioli anywhere, Affogato dessert was perfection. Washed down with a delightful Gavi Di Gavi, I will return as soon as possible.

    Wonderful food and service. Very small and cozy and could be noisy when full. Would prefer more space and better ambiance but that would not stop me from dining there as much as I could.

    Had not heard of il Professore before which is located between a Subway sandwich shop and a dry cleaner so I drove right past. It is a treasure and an awesome find. Great upscale Italian food in a well appointed 9 table intimate and peaceful restaurant. The staff is top notch and made us feel at home. I intend to make it our go to place for an Italian dinner going forward. Great experience.

    This hidden gem is amazing. Tucked into a nondescript strip mall, wedged in by chain retailers like Dollar General and Subway, it's easy to dismiss as ordinary from the outside, but it's anything but. Small, quant decor, maybe 10 tables, great service, amazing food, and fair prices. If you like Italian, it will be one of your go-to places, so much that I HATE writing this review in fear it will become too popular! Seriously, a definite winner, but, SHHHHHHH....MUM's THE WORD!

    There was only one great Italian Restaurant between Ft Lauderdale and Vero Beach....that was Claretta near Stuart. there were NONE in Palm Beach, Jupiter or Tequesta. But now there are two great restaurants. Il Professore was sensational. Best foccacio ever...Fantastic pastas and veal. Remarkable Pistachio Tiramisu. Great wine list. and all under $200 per couple. Run to get a reservation!

    This was our second time having dinner here and the food is amazing. It’s not easy to find authentic Italian in this area and this place hits the mark. The chef is from Capri but there are Tuscan and northern Italian dishes in the menu. The place is small and loud (recommend adding some fabric panels on the walls to absorb some of the noise). We’ve tried a few of the pastas, veal dishes, the chicken Milanese and the bronzino. Everything was super fresh and delicious!!

    Found this little gem thanks to Open Table. When we drove up and saw it was on the side of a strip mall next to a subway shop, we had a brief pause, but inside was cozy (10 tables), the servers were very kind and knowledgeable, and the food was excellent, as was the wine selection.

    We were there on Valentine's day. The restaurant lost stars for serving the Amuse Bouche after the appetizer. Substituting the vintage year of the wine we requested, forgetting to bring bread and olive oil. I had to ask for fresh pepper 3 times to different servers. The food and service was relatively good although the accommodations/tables were extremely crowded and tight for the space.

    May be the most authentic Italian restaurant in the Tequesta/Jupiter area. Every dish was outstanding, made with high quality ingredients along with great presentation. Staff was very attentive and friendly, and they did not rush you out the door. Wine list had several very good options and deserts were the perfect end to an amazing meal. Highly recommend- will definitely be back!
