Italian Restaurant, at the Breakers Hotel

First things first! This is a restaurant review that I want to share with you...no, I didn't make this amazing Shrimp Scampi, gigantic shrimp, served on a bed of fresh steamed baby spinach, and fresh diced tomatoes, in a delicious wine and butter garlic sauce. This was my choice for the entree!

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful evening at the Breakers Hotel, in Palm Beach...our favorite little Italian restaurant on the premises, at the gorgeous hotel. Kids friendly...they have a play room for the little kids, and also a fun arcade that even the bigger ones enjoy so much

Steamed Mussels...my son Joe's favorite, that we all shared...this was an appetizer...great choice!
A personalized pizza for my d-in-law, Cara...asparagus, shrimp, and olives...yummy pizza with such a great crust! The girls had their kids menu..their favorite, chicken fingers, made with chicken tenders, and fried crispy, and golden, with their favorite french fries.
For dessert, Cara chose the caramel apple tartlet, with almond ice cream and crunchy pieces of almonds.
My choice was the fresh berries with zabaglione...so perfect with the fresh berries..yumm!
My granddaughters favorite choice was the Brownie Sundae...just look at the perfect fudge brownie and creamy vanilla brownie...drizzle with fudge sauce...a chocolate lover's dream dessert!



So we arrived just about 5:30 PM to meet with Cara who works at the Breakers Hotel. She was going to meet us at the restaurant. The sky is a dull grey...almost ready to rain, as it has been every single day for the past 3 weeks...a welcome for the terrible drought we have been getting.
The entrance to the restaurant is like a tropical paradise with lush green plants and various other ones all typical Florida plants. It's a very casual atmosphere, jeans, and flip-flops are permitted.
When "daddy" says pose for pictures...the "attitude" comes out...Sophia loves the camera...and Mattia is a little shy!
Getting closer to the entrance...it is not just like a tropical paradise...it is a tropical paradise...a total relaxed and gorgeous atmosphere!
Well, here we are...the entrance of the Italian restaurant, at the Breakers Hotel...tucked away in a tropical setting!
I love this handsome chef LOL...holding the sign "welcome to the Italian restaurant"
You can enjoy your meal on the terrace entrance...or
you have a choice of the main dining room...(we were "early birds")...first to arrive!
We chose to eat in the smaller section ...close to the bar, where we had some nice "wine tasting"...as well!
A special little section for kids to hang out...
By the time we were ready to leave...about 8:00PM...the rain came down in "buckets"...you can see the drops of the rain...it was pouring. Good thing they had huge umbrellas that they let us borrow! An eventful evening of great enjoyment. Also getting employees' discount also helped to pay for the dinner! (It wasn't overly expensive...but it wasn't cheap, either)...as the saying goes, "you get what you pay for!"...so true!

  12. the sun tea jar I've had since the eighties,, I'm not sure if they sell them anymore,,this one is glass,, I big pickle jar or mayo jar would work, resturants used to give them away but I think they're all plastic now,, I wouldn't use plastic though,, not in the sun,
