Absolutely loved this place. The food was amazing. Everybody in our group was pleased with all their meals. Our waiter, Will, was excellent and he knew the menu inside and out. Great Job! We will be back.

Would have given it five circles if not for the service; it took over an hour to get our meal. Even if a restaurant is crazy busy, that's still too long to get your food. I think they may have lost our order in... More

Outstanding Italian cuisine. We love this restaurant - we make it a point to eat here on every trip. Every dish is well crafted and prepared. The service is very attentive including the manager who ensures that your needs your met. Reasonably priced and well worth it.

Love L'Incontro! For the three-course lunch (quick, tasty, and budget friendly -- good with friends or a business meal)-- and for the evening for dinner! Sublime food! Be sure to ask for oil to dip your bread in before dinner!

We have been here roughly 5 times. The food is phenomenal. Never disappointed. If going in evening, get a reservation. A little diamond to a small town.

We were here during Valentine's day and it is elegant and the staff is very professional and the food is excellent quality. This is a jewel of this area in Lake Wales , Florida. You have to make reservations at L'incontro restaurant, but it's worth it.

Misspelled name, this should be merged with l'Icontro Italian (it means the encounter, or meeting, and it's great!) I don't know if Trip Advisor staff actually read these posts, I guess we'll see!
