Italian

Out of passion, tradition, hard work and integrity, Bavaro’s opened its doors in March 2009 as the first traditional Neapolitan Pizzeria in the state of Florida.

A company committed to the art and craft of Neapolitan pizza, Bavaro’s stays true to tradition by using hand-crafted, wood-fired brick ovens designed by third-generation Neapolitan craftsmen, a 100-year-old yeast culture, 100-year-old Neapolitan recipes, and top-of-the-line ingredients sourced directly from Italy.

From a restaurant in downtown Tampa that seats 50 guests, to a global brand with a standard of quality that resonates around the world, Bavaro’s has since built 3 additional locations and continues to commit itself to the high-quality, welcoming experience that guests all around the country have grown to love.

As a pioneer in the traditional Neapolitan pizza culture, Bavaro’s has set the standard for authentic Italian food, and has paved, and continues to pave, the way for many others in the industry.

                                                        Love the location and size of this restaurant. The food isn’t too shabby either….it’s amazing! Knowledgeable and friendly wait staff.

                                                        Had a very nice meal here to celebrate Mother’s Day with my mom. The service was fast, and friendly. The tres carne pizza was so good. We also tried one of the pasta dishes and subbed some gluten free pasta. We were very happy with that dish as well. Overall great experience and find, we will return.

                                                        The food and the service are always great. The ambience is good and it's never so noisy that you can't have a conversation. Highly recommended.

                                                        Out of towners looking for good wood-fired pizza ! We definitely found it here & will be back in the future. Kendall was our waitress & she was wonderful! Very helpful & friendly. We sat outside so had a nice outdoor breeze. Small interior so I think it was a good call. Meatball appetizer was delicious, loved the whipped ricotta cheese on top. Both the margarita & fungai pizzas were outstanding! Tasted fresh, loved the crust.

                                                        Food (pizza and meatballs) was terrific. I’d ask that they try to find a way to keep their wine in a cooler spot as it’s near the pizza oven and was quite warm when served.

                                                        Bavaro’s is our go-to for pizza & salad. The crust & red sauce is superb! Salads are terrific. Server was great. Maybe get some citronella candles for sidewalk tables for the wayward insect?

                                                        Had a 6:15 reservation, they called to say the were running 10 minutes late ok. One hr and ten minutes later we reluctantly sat outside and after waiting long for water and drinks that two of the drinks were incorrect, were were told they had only one order of oysters. Asked for ice multiple times and finally melted down water after third request. Food nothing I would come back for…. Definitely disappointed!

                                                        Food was excellent. My only complaint would be that the spaghetti and meatballs was actually Angel hair pasta rather than the nice spaghetti I got last month. Service was excellent.

                                                        Pizza served with burnt crust. Some of which was trimmed off. But bottom partly black and couldn't escape burnt flavor throughout. The bolognese sauce was without seasoning. Lacked salt and pepper. No flavor.
