The Sun Sentinel's first impression: "Modern Italian cuisine has arrived in Boca Raton. Tradition never overwhelms innovation so you might see mussels in a wine and curry sauce. "Venice was the spice gateway to Europe," says chef Lillo Teodosi, originally from Rome".
Background: Teodosi and wife Gina Caruso Teodosi sold their Topo Gigio Ristorante in Chicago and moved to Boca. If the name Caruso sounds familiar, that's because Gina's grandfather Renato once had Caruso restaurants in Fort Lauderdale & Boca.
Ambience: The Teodosis took their time to find the perfect location. The 48-seat dining room has windows on three sides and mirrors and ceramic tiles on just about every surface. Few restaurants have this much character. Business is so good since opening in January that they added the four-table Bar Rouge in an adjoining space. Some guests insist on sitting in this equally charming room or love the outdoor patio.
