Il Bellagio at CityPlace in WPB. Yes or No?

leslieolson Jun 16, 2009 08:50 AM

So CityPlace is a little more shiny than I'd usually go for, but how's the food at Il Bellagio? I've seen reviews that are all over the place. If not, what's the best Italian in West Palm?

    Paradisio in Lake Worth is an interesting choice. If you put your self in their hands and let them bring you what they want (they discuss with you first your likes/dislikes) you can have a fabulous dinner. Each time I've done that with other people, the meal was top notch. However, I've also been there and just ordered off the menu, which resulted in an okay but nothing special kind of dinner, which I wouldn't recommend. The prices are a bit on the high side, but well worth it if you let them choose for you.

      Maybe someone can speak up about Stresa (Italian) or Dolce de Palma (Mediterranean/Italian) , two places that received very good reviews from the Palm Beach Post. FYI, I have never been to either one.

      Search pbpulse.com for these reviews.

        I adore Stressa. Their broccoli rabe is devine, love the vibe there. Seriously considered it for this dinner...

          Thanks! I was afraid there were no WPB hounds on this board this week! Unfortunately, we'll be driving down from Fort Pierce for the evening, and Boca is just toooo far. I will definitely put it in the queue tho.

            So very sad to see that it appears Capri Blu has disappeared...
