Al Fresco

After you finish a round of golf at the oceanfront Palm Beach Par 3 Golf Course, take in the green and blue views from Al Fresco restaurant located upstairs in the clubhouse. With the same menu as its Worth Avenue counterpart, you’ll enjoy delicious Italian fare in an equally tasteful setting. 2345 S. Ocean Blvd., Palm Beach


This white-linen Italian restaurant originally hails from Milan and serves classic dishes. The Caesar salad and tuna tartare with avocado-cucumber relish are favorites to start, followed by a traditional tagliolini alla Bolognese. Request a seat inside the main dining room or outside on the via. 313 Worth Ave., Palm Beach

Cafe Flora

This relaxed Worth Avenue hideaway celebrates Tuscan food in a cozy setting that’s especially romantic in its outdoor garden. Begin with the excellent mini antipasto plate, then taste any of the homemade pasta or delicious salads for a satisfying lunch or dinner. 240 Worth Ave., Palm Beach

Cafe Sapori

This classic, refined Italian restaurant sits just over the bridge and brings in a consistent, lively crowd—your hardest decision will be what to order off the extensive menu. 205 Southern Blvd., West Palm Beach

From the people who brought you Buccan, this refined and spacious Italian West Palm spot features an open-air kitchen and bustling bar. Try the refreshing fennel and citrus salad, then finish with handmade bucatini carbonara or an in-house wood-fired pizza—the mushroom is a favorite. 1901 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach

La Masseria

This sibling of New York’s own La Masseria and Masseria dei Vini serves Pugliese and Southern Italian specialties with a focus on wine pairings in a refined setting. 5520 PGA Blvd., Ste. 104, Palm Beach Gardens

La Sirena

This is a respected Italian favorite with a warm, cozy yet airy space with exposed wood beams, featuring kind, outstanding service and an extensive wine list. Favorites from chef-owner Marcello Fiorentino include costoletta di vitello Sirena (a pounded and lightly breaded veal chop topped with fresh arugula) or the roasted branzino, often a special on Fridays. 6316 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach

Pizza Al Fresco

A family favorite, this Palm Beach Italian outdoor restaurant is tucked into historic Via Mizner. Split a wood-fired pizza (the namesake pizza is a favorite—with mozzarella, prosciutto, arugula and Parmesan) and a glass of wine while enjoying the beautiful European-feeling courtyard. 14 Via Mizner, Palm Beach


Step into this elegant, sumptuous Italian restaurant nestled on Via Mizner with romantic outdoor seating, flawless service and a rightfully family-owned vibe—in a very Palm Beach way—for a memorable dinner. 87 Via Mizner, Palm Beach

Ristorante Santucci

We love Santucci’s chic all-white space with picture-perfect plates and smiling staff. Select the osso buco alla Milanese and anything with the 24-month-aged prosciutto. 610 Clematis St., Ste. 1, West Palm Beach

Sant Ambroeus

At Sant Ambroeus, opt for the new beef roulade osso buco: braised short ribs osso buco served with Yukon gold creamy mashed potatoes and a red wine sauce. The Italian resto perfectly melds old-world Milan into its meals, each featuring the fresh catch of the coastline. Don’t miss the ahi tuna tartare with dressing made of orange zest and soy sauce, served with avocado mousse. 340 Royal Poinciana Way, Palm Beach

Trattoria Romana

This Boca staple is a favorite to many, dishing out fine Italian favorites in a setting to match—including a trellis overhead. 499 E. Palmetto Park Road, Boca Raton
