*Weather may interfere with your reservation, we will do our best to accommodate you.*

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.

    Always one of my favorite places to eat lunch in downtown Tampa! The food is great & so is the service. The lunch special prices can't be beat either. I always have left overs. But my absolute fave is the vodka sauce! I ask for it extra with every meal. Kudos to Maria & Jasmine for always bringing it.

    We are huge fans of Bavaro’s ever since they had their Orlando location between 2015 and 2017. The authenticity of their Neapolitan pizzas are still unmatched in Central Florida, and truly transports me back to Italy. We visited one of their Tampa locations and were immediately reminded of why we fell in love with it back in 2015. The quaint storefront, very friendly service, beautiful plate presentations, and balanced, homemade flavors are still consistent so many years later. We ordered the penne alla vodka with chicken, and the prosciutto pizza. Both were fantastic. I’m so happy they are doing well with the 5 locations in the Tampa Bay metro area, and hope one day they will come back to Orlando. We miss you!
