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.

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".
