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!

    The service was good, all were very attentive. Appetizers, main courses and dessert were all bland. I’ve never had Italian food where I couldn’t taste even a hint of garlic and everything needed salt. Tiramisu portion was large but again, bland-more whipped cream than anything and only two small layers of barely soaked lady fingers.

    From the moment we sat down, we felt welcome, and our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable. She recommended a fabulous wine and appetizers. The meal was delicious with very generous portions. It was a beautiful evening. We can’t wait to go back.

    Make sure you arrive on time and hungry. The portions were great and timely to the table. Noise level is high and not able to hold a comfortable conversation. The seating is very tight. The food was wonderful and the service was fabulous. I will be going back for sure.

    the food was excellent/ my husband had the octapus for an appetizer and he said it was wonderful. I had Burrata? ' Mozzarella cheese with tomatoes and I can't wait to get it again." My entree was Penne Alla Norcina Penne pasta with spicy Italian sausages, a touch of cream aged Parmesan and a splash of white truffle oil. it was delicious. My husband had Fresh Wild North Atlantic Cod Alla Livornese A delicate whitefish, served in a Livornese style sauce with tomatoes, olive oil, onions, and more. Served with Linguine pasta. he said that was also amazing, For dessert, we had Tiramasu, the best I ever had. service was great, sadly I don't know her name. she was a short blonde-haired woman and she was wonderful. This will become a monthly night out,

    I booked it for my husband's birthday and requested a quiet area. It is very charming and has a cozy feel, but the tables are very close. By the time we were halfway done, it was very busy and noisy. The food was okay but not anything unusual, very typical American Italian menu. It is on the high end in regard to prices and we left a little deflated as to our expectations

    Sat us near kitchen, staff congregates & talks there. Cesar salad was good, however, $13.00 for a few leafs of romaine & few croutons. Not fresh Eggplant, zucchini, dried over pounded out thin chicken slices, no sauce or pasta. Veal parmesan was ,ok. First & last time dining there.

    Noise level was extreme!! Service was mediocre too poor. I had asked for a certain server who was working but not assigned to us. The server who was assigned to us would disappear in a flash in the middle of a question/sentence. Perhaps he couldn’t hear anybody speaking it was so loud. He was annoyed when we asked for the specials to be repeated because he started talking about the specials without announcing that he was about to do so and at a table for six they were conversations going on. Three peoples items arrived incorrectly prepared. And they just try to pass them to the next person at the table. When they were refused and sent back they came back correct about 15 minutes later. Drink service was slow but I don’t believe it was from the bar, it was that the server for our table kept forgetting to come back with everyone’s and only brought partial orders to the table. Empty glasses and dirty dishes were left on the table and when tried to hand to server he would walk away leaving you holding the empty glass outward. He did not even send a Buser back to do whatever job he didn’t want to do. fortunately the food was delicious
