If you are Looking for a Good Italian Restaurant close to Solivita, we have one for you and you don’t have to sit in traffic on I4 to get there. We have been enjoying the cuisine of L’incontro for years and in reading through my past posts I see that I have not mentioned this lovely little place. Easy to get to by taking Rt 27 South to 60 West and the restaurant is on your right.
L’incontro is family owned and operated. The restaurant includes Italian Chefs that have cooked for famous folks all over the world. The food is delicious, as good as my Mom’s, but please let’s keep that a secret just between us. The bread is served hot and accompanied by a delicious dish of Hummus and butter or you can always ask for Olive Oil. The menu has a nice assortment of fish, meat, pasta and rice dishes, and good options for vegetarians. We have never been disappointed. The sauce, or Gravy, is as good as any I have had, hearty and flavorful made with sweet San Marzano tomatoes. The other day we shared a plate of fried calamari that was just delightful. A bowl of sauce and fresh lemon accompanied the calamari and half the group used lemon and the other half dipped away in sauce, this dish left no one in the group unhappy. After our sinfully delicious start everyone made their own dinner choice, salad or soup is served with your entrée and every entrée was hot and tasty. This restaurant is worth the trip and offers a good dining experience, especially when guests are visiting, or you are tired of cooking. We have family members that are weekly lunch guests of L’incontro and report that they have never left disappointed. I hope you get a chance to try this restaurant. If you go, please look around you may see Lee and I dining at a nearby table. 35 State Road 60 W., Lake Wales, FL or visit on the web at https://lincontrofl.com If, during this time, you are an outdoor diner only, no worries, ask to sit on the patio in the back.
