Food was very good and seemedFood was very good and seemed healthy without the heavy creams on the white sauces. Service was great. Kind of an old fashioned Italian place but food was good and prices were somewhat reasonable.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience. Great food.Our first time at this restaurant. Thought we would try it based on other Open Table reviews and we were not disappointed. Great food, good service, nice ambience. We will definitely go back!!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent restaurant. AuthenticExcellent restaurant. Authentic Italian eats. The grouper is fantastic. Bisque is best I've had. Lauro's has a real old world vibe to it. It's my favorite Italian restaurant in Tampa.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciously Authentic Dining!Lauro Ristorante Italiano handled our large group of 16 with grace, poise, style, and a dash of entertainment!
This 'ristorante' is first-class in every sense of the word. The food was delicioius, served perfectly and hot. The menu has a great variety, and if you can't find it, just ask. Absolute perfection with the service. The servers and the management made us feel exceptionally welcome as they would a guest in their home.
Whether it's just the two of you (for a romantic night out), or a large group (like our experience this week), we highly, highly recommend this fine dining establishment! You will not be disappointed!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMHomespun traditional Italian eats!Homemade pasta!! Everything was delicious!! Warm and friendly atmosphere!!!

The various dishes that my party tried were delectable. I will certainly return to the restaurant in the future.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional service and food.I was one of a group of nine men looking for an Italian restaurant on a Saturday night at 7:30. Since most places had waiting times of up to two hours, we thought we were out of luck. But we lucked on to Lauro's and had a meal we will never forget.
We were made to feel very welcomed, and seated immediately. The service was excellent. We received constant attention, and the food was paced perfectly.
All nine of us loved our food. I got the Itallia salad and the gnocchi. The guys sitting near me got the rack of lamb, veal meat loaf, and eggplant parmigiana.
The desserts were great, too, and they brought us all complimentary limoncello aperitifs. Very highly recommended!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
