Italian
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!

    Second visit here...excellent food and service. Veal chop special was delicious, as was the fried calamar' and eggplant rollatini. No regrets, though I wish they were a bit closer to home. Can't wait for my next visit. Oh yeah, sorry for the mess we made. Spilled a few items and waitress was totally cool with it.

    Had a first date at Casa Ludovico. It was a nice dinner, the tables are pretty cramped and it is pretty loud inside. I hope for a darker more romantic setting for fine dining. All in all the food was good, wine was good, service was good.

    The food was outstanding. I got my favorite penna alla norcina. I am never disappointed. My spouse got an evening special with grouper and linguine. The service was good. Our server remembered that we always get MEOMI wine.

    I really wanted to like this but I have yet to find an Italian restaurant in Pinellas County that’s has food better than what I can make at home. One of the meals lacked seasoning and were just “ok”. One of two main entrees was above average which gives me a sliver of hope that if I return it was just a bad first impression. Appetizer was less than stellar as well.

    The food was very good and so was the service. We were disappointed that there was a loud group of “guys” at the bar. It felt like we were at a sport bar which was not the ambiance we expected. The restaurant itself needs a “refresh”.

    We were handed the wine list, after our fourth choice they finally found a bottle that they had. The food was mediocre at best, way overpriced for the atmosphere, there are way better restaurants that serve way better food, this was our third try, giving them an honest attempt at catching our attention, however ended up third strike.

    We were seated upstairs for a romantic table to celebrate my husband's birthday and then they seated a couple with 2 small children next to us in the small section above the stairs, when the entire upstairs was empty. The grilled octopus' appetizer was good, but the main course was not impressive. It didn't taste any better than what we get at a lower end pizza place up the street. Overpriced and would not come back.

    I I had them rigatoni with sausage and marinara sauce it was excellent. Two of the best things on the menu are the freshly made Burrata (spelling) Fantastic. My husband gets the grilled octopus every time we are there and he loves it. I never eat dessert in a restaurant but I will never pass up the Tara Massu that they make daily it is the best I ever had.

    We’ve been here several times and always enjoy the atmosphere, friendly and excellent service, and of course, the food. We had Caesar salads (delish), eggplant rolatini appetizer (ah—mazing!) and a nice bottle of wine. Entrees: chicken Ludovico, my favorite because of the sauce and mushrooms—it’s really quite delicious; and the grilled mahi with vegetables. Unfortunately, the mahi was terrible, dry, and tasted like sub-par frozen fish. (Totally our fault for not saying anything, we’re not really the type to complain or send food back.) It was so unusual for us not to enjoy something here—as this is definitely not the norm! In any event, we will absolutely be back since this is our favorite, go-to Italian restaurant.

    Once again another delicious, great service experience. It was our anniversary and the manager made sure to place us in a romantic quiet place upstairs - with the most attentive server! The food is another level of fresh! Perfectly cooked pasta and limoncello cake and tiramisu was tonight’s choices for us!
