About Casa Ludovico - Palm Harbor, FL

Papa Ludovico's Tradition In Italy, Papa Ludovico’s door was always open and everyone was welcome.

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!

Great food and service in a comfortable, cozy setting. Wide selection of Italian wine. However, it is rather noisy and can be tough to have a conversation at times.

Simulating an authentic Italian trattoria, and providing exceptional food, this restaurant has continued it's long record of excellence without great fanfare or recognition. We have dined here many times with consistent enjoyment and imaginative offerings. The staff is unobtrusive, well-trained, friendly and most helpful. Prices are fair, value abundant.

We came to celebrate my husbands birthday. We were a party of 6. The food was very good, the waitress Kim was very good. At the end of the meal she brought out two desserts with a candle and said one dessert was on her. We never ordered any dessert but we got charged $8.00 for one of them. If they were making a good gesture for his birthday that would have been nice but don't charge us for it. We all thought that was pretty poor business. We probably won't rush back there even though the food was good. What may have happened is we had a $10.00 reward which they knew about at the time of reservation so they didn't want us to make good on it. Again, poor business.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed celebrating her birthday at Casa Ludovico. Our compliments to your chef and to your wait staff. Juan was very attentive, gave us all the evenings dinner specials and very helpful. The meal and especially the dessert was wonderful. We purchased 2 gift certificates to pass along to our children for Christmas gifts. We highly recommend Casa Ludovico to anyone who enjoys true Italian cuisine.

Great Italian cuisine place. The building looks like a vintage southern house, hence the name “Casa Ludovico” (Ludovico’s House). Totally recommended.

Casa Ludivico is a favorite restaurant of ours. I love the ambience especially at dusk. It has excellent, authentic Italian food. The wine selection is also excellent. I always look forward to celebrating a special occasion or just having a suoerior meal. I’m hungry just thinking of going again.

Great food and service. Entrees fairly priced, but I thought $10 for a Caesar salad was a bit high. Dined at 6pm on a Thursday -not crowded but was filling up by 7pm when we left. Will definitely return

Very nice place for a gourmet Italian meal. Good atmosphere and excellent service. Only comment is the table for four was quite small to accommodate the large plates and extras being served. Other than that, a good choice for a great meal.

Don't be fooled by the fact that this restaurant is located in an old home. It is nice inside and they serve consistently authentic and high quality Italian food. Great place to take guests as you are almost assured of a great meal. The spaghetti al nero is my fave but there are a number of excellent entrees and the soups get rave reviews from anyone who tries them.

Dinner w/friends who just moved to the Palm Harbor area and were looking to try the restaurant for the first time.
The wine menu looks extensive, but unfortunately for us only 3 of the 12-15 bottles of red wine listed were available. How a restaurant could be out of so many bottles in bewildering given the profit margin on wine.
Service was exceedingly slow.
The atmosphere is enticing being an older home, but it was extremely loud. We could barely hear each other speak given how close the tables are.
The entrees were were good, but not outstanding compared to other Italian restaurants in the area. The salads and soup of the day (navy bean) were the top hits of the night along with the tiramisu.

My husband and I found this gem when we were in Florida last year . The food is spectacular and they give you nice size portions. It is upscale but casual and comfortable. We will continue to dine here while in Florida.
