I recently had the pleasure of dining at Boca’s newest Italian hot spot, Prezzo with my hubs. Prezzo may be new to you and me, but it is not new to Boca Raton. Restauranter, Burt Rapoport has brought back this Italian hot spot from the 90’s. I have always said that it is hard to find good Italian food so I am so happy to have found this place. They have brought back many of their classic items, but their chef, Patrick Delay has also added new healthy alternatives.
As soon as you sit down, you are greeted with focaccia bread and roasted garlic. Whoever invented roasted garlic was a genius! I can never stop eating it when it is placed in front of me. #ingarlicwetrust
Pro-tip: If you dine before 6, you are in luck because it is happy hour every day until 6! They have specials on cocktails, wine and beer. #cheers
We started our meal with the grilled octopus which was on special. If you ever see this on special there, please do yourself a favor and order it! It was served over a white bean salad and I was so sad when it was gone.
I ordered one of the healthy alternatives: the vegetable lasagna which is made with butternut squash pasta, exotic mushroom & eggplant bolognese which is also gluten free. This dish is a delicious alternative if you have dietary restrictions or just trying to eat healthier. I loved it so much!
The hubs ordered one of the new menu items: the veal & porcini bolognese which is made with prosciutto and housemade fettucine. I love fresh noodles so much! This dish was so flavorful and it was hard to stop eating his food hahha!
For dessert we ordered one of the classics: the apple tart which is made with granny smith apples and served with cinnamon gelato. This is baked in the wood oven where they also make the pizza (can’t wait to go back to try those!). The apple tart is perfect for those that are not too keen on sweet desserts. So perfect for me!!
So if you are looking for a great happy hour menu, a classic Italian meal or even a healthy alternative- Prezzo is for you! Thank you Prezzo for having us!
