A word from Casa Ludovico - Palm Harbor, FL
Papa Ludovico's Tradition In Italy, Papa Ludovico’s door was always open and everyone was welcome. The tantalizing aroma of fine Italian foods cooking on the stove would draw in friends, friends of friends, and sometimes even strangers... but after sharing a bottle of wine together, strangers became friends. Now, Casa Ludovico is proud to share Papa’s traditions in Palm Harbor, Florida. Everyone is welcome to enjoy fine Italian food and wine with both old and new friends. Buon Appetito! Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I have been to Casa Ludovico a few times in the past and have always been happy with the meals. This time I was disappointed. I ordered the penne alla norcina and thought the dish was tastless. The discription says that it is made with a spicey Italian sausage. There was no spice and the rest of the sauce lacked any flavor. The waiter acted like he would rather be any where but working last Saturday evening. Hope the next time is better."

  • "This was our second time at Casa Ludovico and it didn't disappoint us at all. The food was just as good, if not better, then the first time we were there. Only slight problem we had was the waitress. She just seemed annoyed with everything we asked for.She seemed like she didn't want to be there. Someone spilt a water and she asked if she should bring a sippy cup, which was a little offensive because the person who spilt it was 89 years young. I think she was trying to make a joke but it was inappropriate. No one laughed. Overall, it was wonderful."

  • "Enjoyed dinner with friends in a neighbor eatery. The food was good...typical Italian fare. Bread could be better (Like from Mazzarro's) But the olives and olive oil dipping sauce was delicious. The service was a bit slow but we were enjoying time with friends so it was ok. I had the linguine with clams. The pasta and sauce were great but the clams were tiny and chewy. The cheese cake was a good treat and nice way to end the meal. I would recommend it and return."

  • "Food here is always good with some items outstanding - Veal chop & squid ink pasta with clams. Only comment is that when they are very busy and that is most of the time, service can be spotty."

  • "Fabulous attention to detail: was immediately offered a dark napkin (table setting is all white linen) since I was wearing a dark dress. Excellent service throughout. Our server was warm and welcoming and extremely knowledgeable about wine and menu selections. Food was exceptional and delicious. We had a lovely dining experience and evening."

  • "Personally, overall disappointing. Very rushed, very hectic atmosphere. For the price food was ok, I would not recommend. Our waiter was nice, though he seemed under a lot of pressure and had a hard time slowing down in order to explain the menu or our questions. The other major issue is the premature clearing of plates. I cannot get over this custom of clearing plates before all members of the table have finished. It is a practice that is rampant and it makes the other diners at the table uncomfortable. It is not correct procedure. Please tell your staff to stop!!!!!"

  • "I loved the quaint feel of the dining room. Our server was very knowledgeable of the menu, came by and refilled our wine and water glasses frequently and seemed to really enjoy his job. Our wine choice was a Merlot by Elements, which was well priced and delicious. The braised short ribs was the special for the evening and was quite delicious. We will be returning to try more!"

  • "I have frequented this restaurant for years. This is as close to Italy as it gets. They have not only maintained quality but have always been known for innovation and responding to the culinary variances the years have dictated - such as delicious and more reasonable small dishes. I would highly recommend as it's impossible to have a less than excellent meal here!"

  • "I live in Palm Harbor and every time I eat at Casa Ludovico's I ask myself why I don't eat here more often. The food and atmosphere are great. Not the typical Italian food you can find at any chain restaurant, thank goodness."

  • "We went to Casa Ludovico to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We had never been there, did not know anyone who had been there and had only read online reviews. The reviews were spot on! Great food and service. The price actually surprised us as it did not cost as much as we thought it would! I would (and already have) recommended Casa Ludovico to friends!"

  • "For those outside the local area, you should definitely check out this place on Alternate 19 in Palm Harbor. Food is delicious, service is outstanding, wine list is good, and the atmosphere is intimate and friendly. Small bar area and outside seating are also available. Fresh made pasta is the best. Great for a date night or evening out with friends."

  • "We have wanted to try this restaurant for years. Finally we decided to go for my wife's birthday. What a mistake for waiting so long, the food is excellent. We arrived at 7pm and were seated promptly. Our waiter Mark was very knowledgeable about the food and suggested some very good wine that complimented our meal. For dessert we had the Tiramisu, also excellent and big enough two people can easily split. All in all a great experience."

  • "The restaurant accommodated us when they were really overbooked but allowing for a delayed seating time and a problem with availability of clean glasses it was a great evening. The food was excellent and the service and ambience were good considering the overcrowded situation. We shall try again when hopefully the restaurant will not be overbooked. A "Best Find""
