About the restaurant
L’incontro is an Italian word that means, “The Meeting Place.”

Located in Lake Wales, the heart of central Florida, is L’incontro Restaurant, “A Place Where People Gather to Enjoy Classic Italian Food.”

Our family’s interest in Italian cuisine began in the 1960s when my uncle immigrated to the United States. He worked hard to bring other family members to the States to live the American dream. Now, our family includes about 160 people, mostly living in New York and Florida. Four of my uncles are now Italian cuisine chefs or own their own restaurants. Through the years they have cooked for many famous people. Oprah Winfrey, the President of France, and other well-known celebrities have enjoyed their old world-style dishes that showcase the variety and distinct characteristics of Italy’s regional cuisines.

This place offers very good food in plentiful portions at more than reasonable prices. I got the veal parm, the meat was very tender, there was a good amount of cheese and the marinara was good. My wife got the veal piccata and she was very happy. We will definitely be back.

Christini's is well worth the trip. From the moment you enter the service is incredible, the food is amazing, the restaurant is beautiful. An extra attraction is the extremely talented accordion player, Daruisz. He really adds to the experience. Christini's is old-school dining at its very finest, and we highly recommend it.

Winter Park
About the restaurant
My restaurant is a cozy little gem in the heart of Winter Park, where we celebrate the ritual of authentic traditional recipes of Italian cuisine handed down to me by my family.
Each dish is prepared from scratch to order from the best quality ingredients.
Pasta, Gnocchi, Pizza and Bread are prepared in house by hand, as tradition dictates, with flour and water imported from Italy.
The Gelato (of which I greedily preserve the secret of traditional recipes and prepare myself using ONLY natural elements) it is definitely an experience that you will remember

Let my team guide you to the best choice of food and wine to give you a perfect, authentic, Italian experience

Absolutely the best Italian food we’ve had since moving to the area! Fresh made pasta that was so delicate but held up beautifully in the carbonara, perfectly cooked lamb and absolutely amazing desserts! We had both the cannoli and tiramisu because we couldn’t decide! We will be back for sure!

We experienced excellent, attentive service and dined on amazing veal parmesan and veal ravioli. Sam, our server, and Sommelier,Angeline, were very pleasant and helpful in guiding us through the wonderful variety of food and wine options. The desserts were also beautifully presented and so enjoyable. Ravello is definitely on the dining list for our next visit to Orlando.

About the restaurant
Enzo's on the Lake is the perfect place for an evening of cocktails, fine food and wine, delicious desserts and very special hospitality. In 1980, Enzo's on the Lake opened as a lovely secluded lakefront restaurant, built in the style of an Italian villa. The restaurant is dedicated to the idea of simple yet sophisticated cuisine: family owned, crafted with love. The freshest fish, meats, fruits and vegetables that can be obtained are woven into a menu that emphasizes a unique culinary heritage. An antipasto bar welcomes you to the excitement of the dining room overlooking the lake. There is a full service european style bar, private dining areas for meetings and parties, and lakeside gardens and dock. We look forward to serving you!

Enzo’s on the Lake has been a Central Florida GEM for over 40 years. The food is the best Italian you can eat in Florida, the service is outstanding, and the prices are very reasonable. It can be noisy on Friday and Saturday evenings, which is usually when we go. We went to lunch this past Friday (the only day they are open for lunch) and it was fairly quiet.
