It was our second time there. Ordered white wine which came at room temperature. Appetizer was so average. And over priced. My pasta was lukewarm and very greasy. It’s was the rigatoni dish. For dessert we had their cheesecake. Very good but for 12$ the slice was minimal. Their chocolate gelato tasted like regular ice cream. Hope it makes improvements.

excellent service and a menu that is very inclusive!! vegetarian AND vegan selections have their own section on the menu! as for the ambiance, the interior felt a bit like a cafeteria maybe because of the lighting, which was a bit bright for the evening, and because of the cold case of food on display at a back counter. it just felt like the ambiance didn’t match the menu and the price points.

My husband and I dined in on Monday for our 5th year anniversary. We were glad to find this spot. They are still freshly new and by the looks of it they will be a hit. The host was very nice when seating us and was greeted by the server right away. The service was excellent without being overbearing. They had specials on bottle of wine, which I thought was great. We had an excellent fried calamari and shrimp and Spanish grilled octopus for an appetizer. For our entree we shared the red snapper special and woww is all I could say about. They cleaned the fish for me at the table which I loved and it didn’t lack flavor it was amazing. We also shared a cheesecake for dessert. All of they’re desserts are made in house and by the taste of it, it definitely was. The check was brought over and they took care of our dessert since it was our anniversary, very nice of the manager Angela. 5 out 5 stars for Talento. We will definitely be back!

The menu is very limited, we ordered two appetizers, one of which was the eggplant and the bottom of the eggplant was burnt and charred. We left after the two appetizers. There was nobody in the restaurant on a Friday evening.

We we're excited to try this new restaurant and visually it is lovely. However, the food is just fair, service fair, and yet it was extremely expensive. The bill was about 225 dollars for 3 people, two people had one drink only, the third doesn't drink. We regularly go to high end restaurants, but were pretty surprised to get a bill that high for this middling restaurant.

Don’t order the fish special. It’s a ripoff... double the price of any other entree. And it wasn’t even good.

My kind of decor...stylish, minimalist and modern. Their LED waterfall wall is an eye pleasing. The food was good. Similar to any fine Italian restaurant I've been.The service was great.

This was our second time at Talento, the first for our guests. All of us found the food and experience to be outstanding. This is upscale Italian deliciousness with plentiful options for non-pasta eaters, vegetarians and vegans. Get there, you will not be disappointed.

The waiter Matteo was excellent, but the support staff bartender, chef, and support people must be horrible, as we were there 3 hours! The drinks came out in over 20 minutes after we ordered them. The food took about an hour.
There was no excuse as the restaurant was not fill. I realize, that they are not open that long, but it was a long drawn out affair . The food was good once we were serve. The pizza was mushy, and not crispy at all !
We were disappointed to say the least.
Also, there is very little parking available in the area.

My wife and I went on Tuesday. It’s rare to find a place that is attentive without being overbearing, and has drinks, appetizers, entrees, and desserts that make you go wow with every sip or bite.

With so many options in S FL, talento simply falls short of hitting the mark. Service was painfully slow, food runner brought out the meals to the wrong table, then to us. About 4 people had talked/breathed all over our food. Server apologized for lag time, said she’d take the app off the bill (we didn’t care if she did or didn’t...she did not lol). Salads are bland, old fashioned was just sugar and orange. Overall mediocre experience for a $100 dinner.

The lighting was a bit too bright . Salmon was Over cooked . Wish you had a classic Cesar instead of the less then good tofu Cesar . Pizza was good . Wish the display case was more obscured from the beautiful dinning-room

I never give 5 stars--ever. The food was so delicious. I had eggplant parmesan and tofu balls--others in our party had swordfish and salmon on a bed of eggplant. Perfection. The service was excellent, the ambiance outstanding. Thank you for your vegetarian and vegan options. It was no problem for me to find something to eat. We were referred by a waiter at Full Blossom in Miami who raved about the food. What an amazing recommendation which I then shared with a neighbor (also on a plant based diet) who went on Sunday and had the same response to their experience--outstanding!! Well done.
