Branzino was excellent. Veal chop was good, though a bit salty and far too fatty. Overall enjoyed ourselves.

From the moment we arrived, we received a warm welcome from all. Peter the owner ensures that all is run well, while David our waiter looked after all our needs from drinks to main courses and dessert. All our dishes were delicious, and the wine recommended was a perfect parring. Highly recommend. Its been our go to place for years.

I booked a table for dinner at EVOO for after a business meeting with a number of colleagues. The restaurant couldn’t have been lovelier. The service was as good and accommodating as I’ve ever had. The atmosphere was warm and comfortable. The food and drink were excellent. All around a complete gem!

I have found the staff very rude. I was hosting two of my colleagues because l like Evoo, this time it was not fun at all. It began with the waitress ordering (not politely asking us) to place our pack-bags in a cloak room, the tables are so close and tight, another individual asked my guest to push his chair inward effectively his stomach would touch the edge of the table, at arrival at 7:00pm we were told we had until 8:30 and we were asked to leave by asking us do we plan to pay cash or credit? All-in-all, it was a very disappointing experience.

The food was really really good and prices were not expensive for what is basically Yorkville.

My husband had the chicken with pirri pirri sauce. He said it was flavourful if a bit dry.

My grilled jumbo shrimp had lots of flavour and came on a base of a really interesting presentation of vegetables

One of our dining companions was vegan and they were happy to accomodate. Which leads me to the service which was excellent.

All in all a really good experience.

Food is fresh and preparation is very good. Ordered pasta al dente and came out perfectly so. A member of our group ordered risotto pescatore. Rice was al dente and the fish was abundant and not over cooked. We had reservations for 8:00 pm but were seated at 8:20. After many apologies from the staff we were offered complimentary prosecco. Our waiter was knowledgeable and experienced. He perused with grace our frequent communications with the kitchen regarding gluten free options. This is an establishment that truly cares about its customers.

My boyfriend was visiting from England and we enjoyed our last dinner together at EVOO with my mom and grandmother. The dining experience was very comforting and the food, outstanding! The servers were very friendly, making us laugh and made us feel at home with their warming hospitality. I cannot wait to go back!

Delicious Food and Great Value

My friends and I always enjoy eating at Evoo whether it is for lunch or dinner. Our last dining experience at Evoo was excellent as were our previous ones. The food was fresh, creatively presented and delicious. We started with the Calamari Dorati and it was delicious. Some of our party ordered the Costoletta di Vitello (14 oz Grilled Veal Chop) and said it was the best Veal Chop they ever had. I had the Grilled Branzino and it was expertly prepared. Another member of our party had the Linguine with Shrimp and Scallops and it too was beautifully prepared and delicious. Another plus we discovered was that for the month of March all bottles of wine were ½ price from Sunday to Thursday (limited to parties of 8 or less). Their wine selection was extensive. For dessert some of us ordered the biscotti with our Espresso and one person ordered the Tiramisu to share. Desserts were excellent too. Besides the food being wonderful so is the staff. The servers are friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. This is an excellent Italian restaurant that does not disappoint.

This was my 2nd visit. I had whole fish and it was superb. It is hard to get any better than that.

The appetizer platter that we shared was not as good as the main course. Some items were not fresh. Grilled calamari was almost room-temperature.

And again, like first time, the host/server was very serious, no smile, not even at entry.

Will try again though,

The service was excellent - attentive and friendly but not obtrusive. Together with the absence of loud music - a rare blessing in restaurants around town today - the atmosphere or ambience
was congenial, enabling good conversation. The food was well prepared - tasty, flavourful, portions just right - although I would have liked more broth in the mussels, which I thought were a bit tomato heavy. Excellent choice of wines - I had the house pinot grigio. The espresso was strong and elegantly served, and the grappa was good, though I'd have preferred a more delicate glass. All in all, an excellent experience that I wouldn't mind repeating at the slightest excuse.
