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!

    Loved the food as always. My veal chop with brandy cream sauce was simply fantastic. Rick at the front always a joy. Our server and bus boys were on it. Mother in law was impressed so thanks for that LOL.

    We went on Mother’s Day, and it was extremely busy, but we were attended to quickly, and never forgotten. The food was wonderful, as usual. They had plenty of staff working that day. The place is not inexpensive, the food is superb. I highly recommend the tiramisu. It’s a large portion, and can easily be shared by two people. We both wanted to drink the same type of wine, so it was much more reasonable to order a bottle, rather than individual glasses, as we both were planning on having two glasses of wine each. I really charming place in a house built in 1902. I highly recommend it.

    This is our second visit and it was worse than the first. Caesar’s salad had no taste. The veal was tough and bolognese had now taste and was floating in oil and grease. We will never return.

    We felt the waiters were rushing us. I’m used to NY wait staff and I guess FL is different. The place had empty tables because were were there early evening and yet we were barely finished w one course when taken away and next put down. I asked for a photo and the head waiter took it without waiting for us to smile. The decor is beautiful though.

    A very nice place to eat. The food, chicken parmesan and sausage rigatoni, was tremendous. The service was great, timely and friendly. We will go back. The inside restaurant was freezing cold, my bad, as I should have ate outside. We were celebrating my girlfriend's birthday and felt a little bit rushed. I would highly recommend dining there!

    First time dining there service was excellent. Food came out on time. Not a quiet place for an intimate dinner. It was our anniversary and the restaurant was aware or it , but no special treatment not that we were looking for anything, but most high end restaurants will put a card or something! Not a deal breaker! Would go back again, but not on a Saturday night!

    If you’re looking for a different dining experience & want Italian cuisine this is the place to go. From the valet parking & helping you out your car to the friendly staff, just amazing experience. Dressing up for the night was also a plus when most places are casual. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ we will definitely be back

    bread with oil, bruschetta & veal saltimbocca =disappointing. buratte caprese, linguini vongole, chicken marsala, service=very good. Our table was waiting for us when we arrived...that was refreshing. noise level was unexpectedly loud. Overall, we still would go back...it's just a matter of learning what's good and what's not...no place is perfect.

    We came here before prom, the staff was so kind and personable and the food was brought out quickly. It was probably the best pasta I’ve ever had! The ambiance was also amazing, it was romantic but homey and it really made the date special.

    As always, from Marty the Valet to the inside staff this is the place to go for Italian food, they never disappoint. One of the best wine lists in the area with fresh, well prepared food. Had the fish special which was Hog Fish Florentine. Ate every bite. Delicious and stunning on the plate. A must for weekly dinner.
