BOCA RATON, Fla. (CitizenWire) — Celebrating a new beginning, Tony and Laurie Bova have opened a new modern Italian restaurant, VIVO Partenza, in Boca Raton, Florida. The inspired name is both symbolic and sentimental. In Italian, VIVO means “alive” and “lively” and partenza translates to “a departure,” specifically the constant departures one makes into new phases of life. A Grand Opening celebration is scheduled for June 30th, beginning at 7:30 p.m.
The event is open to the public, but guests must RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 28th. For more details, www.vivobocaraton.com .
“This is an exciting time for our family,” said Tony Bova. “We are truly touched by the outpouring of support from our loyal patrons, friends and community leaders. We feel, with VIVO, that we have created an experience that encompasses a culinary journey of our past 28 years in this industry and we are very proud of that accomplishment.”
The carefully crafted menu of VIVO showcases many of the signature dishes that have built a legion of fans throughout South Florida, offering such favorites as Chicken Scarpiello, Eggplant Pancakes, Grilled Veal Chop, Prime Bone-In Rib Eye, Wild Scottish Salmon Piccata and many more, along with their delicious pasta dishes, signature pizzas and salads. And with a variety of price points, the selections allow for a dining experience that caters to each patron’s gastronomic mood and budget.
This compilation of the “best of the best” recipes was carefully decided upon by Tony Bova, who has always been the creative mastermind behind each dish, ever since the early days in 1982 when he began his first restaurant in Boca Raton.
“For me, it has always been about the food,” he said. “And with VIVO, that is the focus. I grew up watching my mother in the kitchen, and I always knew this is what I wanted to do. Creating a place where people can experience wonderful Italian cuisine and enjoy themselves with friends, family and business associates, has always been my passion.”
With VIVO, the Bovas are looking forward to personally welcoming back their loyal fans, while creating many new ones. “With this opening, we feel like we are coming home,” said Tony. “As a family, we are focusing on the things that have always been most important to us, which is making each and every guest feel they are part of our family every time they dine with us.”
