A little history

From Executive Chef Erik Pettersen’s heart and imagination, Evo Italian offers contemporary interpretation of authentic Italian recipes. The draw of family brought fourth generation Italian Chef Erik to south Florida where he opened Evo Italian in 2007. Evo, short for evolution, represents a dream inspired by his Mother Nancy to bring time-honored, old world traditions evolving full circle into fresh new beginnings. Years ago, in the Italian village where his grandparents lived, there were no supermarkets to shop for food, so dinner came fresh from the farm to the table.


Excellent service, tasty food, and a classic and cozy atmosphere make this a great place for any occasion. Of course, there are safety and health precautions in place, so you can be sure to feel comfortable as you enjoy the flavors of Italy.

A selection of our favorites is below. Be sure to check out Evo Italian very soon for a memorable evening and delicious fare.
