Wow. The food and service were phenomenal. The chef specials were unique and delicious. We left with super full bellies. Our waitress was very nice and made sure to address them. Definitely a place you need to go to if you are in the area.

Start your experience with the understanding that most of the menu is A La Carte. No veggie or salad. Meat dishes include a veggie. So, bottom line, it can be expensive if you want a full typical meal. Food is fresh, but in our opinion...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".
