This is a great Italian restaurant with a small town feel. The have daily specials that include a soup or salad, entree and dessert at a very reasonable price. Everything I have tried has been very good.

This little jewel sits right on hwy 60 in lake whales. The menu has a good selection of authentic Americanized Italian dishes. Sampled 4 or 5 dishes, and have to admit most were excellent; especially the osso bucco with risotto. Either that, or the veal....More

Food is so overpriced it is ridiculous. Pasta, please, throw on some unflavored sauce, & call it a specialty. Small portions, too much pasta, & heavens, wayyyyyy over priced. So many nice places to eat. Not worth your time.

We have been going to L'Incontro for a few years. We go about once a month and have always had an excellent experience. The Sea Bass is outstanding. I think I've had just about everything on the menu. Very good either for lunch or dinner....More

This is the first time I have been here. The people who run it are all great. They answer and question you have. The service was excellent. Food is out of this world. Really enjoyed the atmosphere. Will go back again.

Finding a good - and I mean GOOD- Italian restaurant - is hard to find in the area. L'incontro IS the place! The veal cutlet parmigiana was tender and succulent. I had penne a la vodka on the side and had a nice size takeaway...More

I do not remember a separate room as I have only been there once. I would give them a call. The food is good and the price was reasonable. I plan to go back when I am in that area. I live about 50 miles from this place.

We opened Friday January 14, 2011. We are a Italian Restaurant serving fine Italian food, our staff is trained to serve ladies and gentleman at L'incontro. Guest love our food and our attentive service and the one thing they always say as they are leaving is "can't wait to come back".
