Best Italian food . Very much enjoyed the evening!!
outstanding service , presentation menu, ambiance, one of the best in the county
We are never disappointed at Casa Ludovico. We've been going there over ten years at least. We love the atmosphere , and always run into people we know, as it has a neighborhood charm . Food is outstanding. Pasta is perfection.
Excellent meal and great service
Excellent food! Tomato sauce just like Italy! Best restaurant I went to in the Tampa bay area.
Wonderful waitress and very good food. Was however unhappy paying a full upcharge of $6.00 for a vegetable to substitute for pasta
Have never had a bad meal or service. The food is always great and the staff prompt, friendly, and knowledgeable.
This is a wonderful special occasion restaurant. It never disappoints.
Excellent Italian dishes, good service, good wine list
We were gravely disappointed this trip. 5 star meals with well above average service is expected here and received every previous reservation. I've taken out of town guests here many times and my wife and I had it as our go to place for fine Italian cuisine. This trip was a nightmare with poor service from our waiter and poor beverage mixing from the bar. Although my meal was excellent, my wife's veal entree was not near the same quality she remembers and expects. Not planning to return any time soon.
Despite making our open table reservation early in the day and confirming later by phone, the staff seemed surprised by our arrival and we waited for them to arrange a table by the front door. Our waitress seemed disengaged and some of the dishes not fresh. The special of octopus was delicious but pasta side orders were pre-prepared and veal Milanese from the menu was over-cooked and dried out. Wanted to like the place but will travel to Tampa or St. Pete for a better meal :(
Always Awesome. I eat here every time I am in town
Best Italian food I have ever had. We will spread the word and hope to return.
We always take new people who are looking for quality Italian Cuisine...Once they go, they want to go back. You never disappoint! Working in the entertainment business every weekend I rarely get a chance to go out to dinner, so your restaurant is always a treat!!
Thank you Carmine for another wonderful experience and celebrations of my birthday. Your food, service and ambience is always the best!
Always great food and service. Thank you for Dinner The spicy sausage and truffle pasta is the best plate in Palm Harbor.
I was meeting friends for Easter Dinner. Normally I am not a big fan of Italian food because of the heavy use of tomato sauces, plus I make better red gravy (Italian for sauce) than many so called italian resturants. I had a veal/eggplant dish with olive oil and garlic. The also prepared the side of pasta with that same sauce. Based on how great it tasted, next time I may order another dish with a red sauce. Wish they had angel hair pasta available.
This is the second time that I have been here. The food does not disappoint, although I think it is a bit pricey. The service is acceptable but both times the wait staff didn't seem very attentive. We had to continue to ask for drinks and even water refills. The food was delivered promptly.
Food is always amazing always piping hot always delicious
This was the first time we ate at Casa Ludovico. The initial impression, parking, was underwhelming since only valet parking is available and we had to wait just to get in. However inside it is a nice rustic setting, and service was excellent. We had reservations and were seated as soon as we announced ourselves. The service was impeccable and the food was wonderfully prepared, but the entrees would have been better if they had more flavor. The Carpaccio appetizer however was excellent.
Another nice meal at Casa. WE were celebrating my husbands birthday and this was his first choice. Food was outstanding, service very good as always, and the wine list is great. One of our favorites for it's consistency in all areas.
Memorable dining experience--calimare was moist, tender and tasty; mains were terrific with large portions and nicely presented; wine list was sufficient in terms of reasonable prices and selection. Will return!
Excellent food and service. Will go again and again
Always find the staff and food to be excellent.
The food is creative, authentic and always hot and appetizing.
The staff goes out of its way to be sure that you have a great meal. Very attentive.
Why bother making a reservation when you arrive in time and the owner puts your name on a list with 12 table requests above you. No apology ....nothing. My family has gone to this restaurant for about 4 years for special occasions or just a dinner out. Never again. Don’t even know why anyone would go back.
Fantastic Italian restaurant. Food was superb as was the service. However, I do not believe an Open Table reservation was of any use. Reservation was for 7:15pm on a Friday night, and we were not seated until 8:10pm. That was OK with us, as we had a glass of wine while waiting, and worth the wait, but if you are looking to be seated anywhere near your Open Table reservation, be prepared to hang for a while.
very noisy and busy
food was very good
parking is very small lot
Tiramisu and lemon cake a must for dessert after an excellent meal of mahi mahi with vegetables! Not everything is pasta, which is appreciated. Excellent choice for dining.
You will enjoy Café Ludovico if you like good Italian good, great service and a fun atmosphere. We were in town for a golf trip ( 4 guys). The full bar provides a fabulous start.
I personally like the veal.
Food was outstanding. Best Italian in the area.
Had a delightful time! There were three of us celebrating a successful foot operation. White wine list was limited as well as cocktails but the food was delicious. The service was attentive, friendly, helpful and quite enjoyable. We will be back!
Very crowded, shortage of some items. Loud.
If you get a table on main floor you are lucky,
Or you have a long flight of stairs.
Too busy for our anniversary dinner. We booked early, but felt rushed to accommodate the crowd that was waiting to get in. Our check was delivered with our dessert. Food was good, not great.
The food was excellent. Wine was also very good. Our waiter was very helpful. Well worth the price.
Excellent meal. Looking forward to our next meal when we return.
We had dinner at Ludovico's for the third time a few days ago. As usual it was a pleasure. Our waiter Marco was excellent. The food was wonderful and being of Italian descent we are picky about Italian restaurants. Casa Ludovico gets five stars from us for menu, food quality and ambiance. It is a gem and we will go back soon.
Another very enjoyable evening. The food was delicious and the service attentive. We'll be back!
