My love of all things Italian keeps growing as I make new discoveries and new friends through food and wine. My latest palate and mind blowing gastronomic encounter is Ristorante Santucci. This West Palm Beach find is definitely a keeper and one I encourage repeat visits to. After several meals and getting to know Gianluca and Eugenio, I felt it was time to share the experiences that have made each return rival the previous one. My go to list of “Highly Recommended” restaurants, just received another member – – yes Santucci is now part of the family of coveted returns.
The family is Italian-Belgium and the food is of old world Mediterranean essences with a new world flare of excitement and innovation. This father (Emilio) and son (Eugenio) team know how to set fire to food that will in all ways delight and please your palate. Their first four impressions have truly been outstanding.
Here are dishes from my past visits that will sure to have you making reservations months out, especially before season starts – – heads up “Snow Birds and Snowflakes.”
I now plan my treks to West Palm with confirmed Santucci reservations.

One of our most treasured and now repeated experience is when we give Eugenio the number of courses we desire and he determines what to send to the table. Be it the seafood pasta with hints of anise, grilled branzino with fresh herbs and lemon, the amazing veal bolognaise or grilled steak with truffle oil and balsamic vinegar dressing, you will experience something special and unique when you are at Santucci. This is “La Dolce Vita” at its best!
The cozy and relaxing atmosphere surround by exceptional cuisine and amazing personalities is the idea spot to travel to Italy by way of your palate and their hospitality. So, “Mille Grazie” to Emilio, Eugenio, Gianluca and Nicla. Your welcoming us back and always treating our palates to something wonderful and amazing is so very much appreciated. We look forward to seeing you soon!!! And by the way, thanks for choosing West Palm and not Brisbane!!!!
