    Lovely dinner outside. Everything was very nice, delicious. We will be coming back again. The only thing is I would like the table to be just a little bit bigger. Lots of dishes, glasses . etc and little room to shift everything about. But the place is so good, I can live with that.

    We went late Sunday evening so the Danville downtown was quiet in general. We were able to change our seating preferences and the staff gladly obliged and set us up for outside patio seating. The house breads were light and fresh. Enjoyed their beet salad with shrimp and the salmone. Would certainly recommend them.

    We were seated promptly upon arrival. Our waiter wasn’t very friendly, didn’t give us the specials, but he did mention them to other customers around us. It was my daughter’s 30th Birthday I did mention that in the notes in our reservation, but she wasn’t acknowledged and the table next to us was brought a desert with a candle. A disappointing!

    Incontro is my favorite restaurant in downtown Danville. This time was no different. I just loved the outdoor music and the food is always fantastic. I brought my teenage daughter before we watched a show at the Village Theater and the experience was exactly what a daddy-daughter dinner should be!

    What a gem we found! This was our first time dining at Incontro and our party of four just loved everything about it. Our waiter, Jesus, was very friendly and ensured we were taken care of without being a nuisance. The food was so good. For appetizers we started with bruschetta and a bottle of Soave gluten free wine. Both were delicious. For the main courses we eggplant parmigiana, chicken risotto, pappardelle al pesto and the pappardelle special with meat sauce and pecorino cheese. Wow! Fantastic! We ended the meal with creme brûlée and bourbon panettone…again just fantastic. We were allowed to sit at the table all evening and enjoy our conversations and and laughter without being rushed off after our meal. This is a wonderful place to enjoy some excellent Italian cuisine with some great wine choices. We will definitely be back and I highly recommend it. Great job Incontro!

    I can’t recommend Incontro enough for a perfect meal. Service and food were perfect. I will comment on my what I was served. First off, Antonio was the perfect host — professional, charming, and wonderful sense of humor. I started with the beet salad. It was perfectly dressed so that all the flavors — goat cheese, citrus, beets, greens — were not masked but instead came through on the palate. The lamb chops, a special for the evening, was cooked to a nice medium rare, topped with salsa verde, and served with broccolini and fregola. Again all components were perfectly seasoned. One of my pet peeves is restaurants not preparing vegetables properly. I usually get warm raw vegetables sans seasoning or vegetables overpowered with the taste of raw garlic. Not in this case; the broccolini was crisp and subtly seasoned. The fregola was a nice change as I normally don’t see that served. For dessert I ordered the Bourbon Panettone which was as enjoyable as my salad and entreé. It was a hybrid of American bread pudding and New Orleans Bananas Foster. Sounds heavy and rich, but it wasn’t; it had the right amount of sweetness. I will definitely return this summer and will request to be served by Antonio.
