Stresa Italian Restaurant
Posted by Dan on 07/30/2011
I grew up in Brooklyn with Italian food both home cooked and all that was offered in the many Italian restaurants that I dined in. I've found Stresa's food as good as any I've eaten before and definitely the best I have found in this area. The setting makes me feel like I'm among friends and the service has always been friendly and superb. I think some people need attitude adjustments since I've never heard anyone I know complain about the place. And I know quite a few people who go there.

I found the Dover sole to be the best I've ever had, This fish is fileted table side by the server who was prompt and attentive. The atmosphere was very Italian homey, and even my friends that have "difficult" palates were accomodated.

I have had the best Italian food in this area at Stressa's. It is always fresh and of the finest quality. Never a complaint. We have always been treated as though we were specail guests!

We had a great table in the corner and I was ready for a "real" Italian dinner. What we got was a waiter that did not want to add chicken to my gnocci which had no meat in it. He just kept turning up his nose at me...just mean! Ok...we can get past that...but when the food came it was plain..no flavor chicken was so dry and old tasted like rubber. I called when I had a chance to speak to the owner and he was even more rude that the waiter...Dont waste your time...go somewhere else anywhere else is better than mean people with extremely high prices. $18 for gnocci with no meat...just mushrooms from a can....lmbo!

I ate at this restaurant with a guest last week and was shocked at the prices on the menu and the rudeness of the hostess. The hostess informed us that everything on the menu was now a la carte, and our main meal at $25 each did not come with soup nor salad. I live in Montreal and am used to higher food prices and when warranted, it is my pleasure to pay. My veal parmagiana meal was very good though NOT worth the price. The ambiance was cute, but far from fine dining. To add to my discomfort with the price of my meal, the music was irritating and the plastic floral arrangements atop our heads were extremely dusty. I will never return here and would never recommend this place to anyone.

there are better Italian restaurants in west palm beach. the only time I eat there is when a client, who is not Italian,says they heard it's a good place. Since they are paying I go. the food is just edible. I can make better at home. If you did not grow up in an old fashon Italian house like I did you will think its' good. But I will never spend my money in there.

I went to Stresa for my first time this past Saturday and I loved it! The food was great I had the Chicken Parm and my Mom had the Veal and she said it was the best Veal she has ever had! The staff was very friendly and it was my Bday so they came out and sang to me! I will def go back..a good tip would be to make a reservation they are pretty packed.
