Italian
Our casual restaurant has a retro contemporary theme which includes a carved wood bar topped with marble, granite table tops and bright turquoise and red accents flanking the wood-burning brick oven. Terrace seating is shared with our fine dining concept Bella Roma.

Flavio, a third-generation chef from Venice, Italy, says his Farinata is not available anywhere else in the area. The thin pancake (much like a tortilla) is made of chickpeas, baked in the wood-burning oven and enhanced with rosemary and other savory toppings.

Among Flavio's thin-crust pizzas (his grandfather's recipes) are the popular Quattro Stagioni (fresh mozzarella, mushrooms, prosciutto, olives) and the Pizza Vegetariana with assorted grilled veggies. The rustic bread and focaccia are made on the premises. Flavio's also serves up house-made pasta dishes, plus veal and seafood entrees.

We look forward to serving you!

Great atmosphere, very good food, awesome pizzas to choose from. All of the staff was very friendly from the moment we arrived and until we left. Our waiter Michael was very helpful in finding the perfect red wine for me to enjoy. This was only are 2nd time going to Flavio’s and it certainly won’t be our last. We love the fact there is Valet parking available so we never have to worry about where we’re going to park..

This place was amazing ! It’s not the first time we have been here . We went early to beat the rush. The food was super yummie ! We focused on the seafood dishes except for my son who had the pizza and daughter who had fettuccini alfredo. ( It’s the real deal .) The snapper and sea base were cooked perfect with surroundings of plentiful goodness.So nice to have everything perfect on a vacation day in Siesta key .

My son-in-law and I were in town to play golf for a few days and we decided to have dinner at Flavio's. we had eaten there many times before and always had very good meals. We both decided to start with a house salad which were very fresh and very good. For his entrée my son-in-law decided upon the pasta special which was lobster ravioli and I decided to have the fish special which was red snapper. When the meals were delivered we discovered the meals were good but not as good as previous meals we had eaten there. I had ordered a bottle of Soave to have with our meals and it turned out to be very good. Our server provided good service throughout the meal and was always there whenever we needed anything. Even though our meal that night wasn't as good as other meals we've had there we will return.

We had a reservation for a very large party on a very busy night and our table was ready and the service was magnificent. Everyone enjoyed their food and spirits! Only negative comment was that the gluten free pasta was obviously boxed and we ordered it carbonara and it was very, very salty.

My family was in Siesta Key to celebrate my 60th. We had four generations for dinner. The table was perfect, two on each of four sides. Great service!

Flavio's is our new favorite on Siesta. Food is consistently good, cool atmosphere and wonderful service. We liked it so much, we went 2 nights in a row. One night for pizza and salad, and the other for seafood.

Perhaps our favorite restaurant on Siesta Key. Flavio himself was making pizza the night we were there. Dough home-made in the back, along with all the other ingredients. On other occasions we have had just a fabulous Osso Busco special. Call to see if its available. We try to get here at least once every 2 weeks.

Out celebrating with our friends both of our recent home purchases. We ordered calamari, a brick oven pizza, spicy lobster linguine, lasagna, chicken and scallops pesto and spicy shrimp linguine, and dessert lemoncello cake with lemoncello shots. We highly recommend to anyone looking for a great meal and great service. Ask for Joseph as your waiter. Excellent for your dining experience.

The tables for 2 in the hallway between dining rooms are way too cramped. The tables were too close together (my husbands seat actually touched the chair of the person next to us) and the table itself was too small to hold the plates. The restaurant was not full so I’m not certain why we were jammed in the way we were. We visit Flavio’s every time we’re in Siesta Key and we’re very disappointed with this arrangement. On the plus side, the young man who bussed our table was fantastic.

I had requested to NOT be seated at a high-top table so the greeter proceeded to set us in a converted hallway, which we did not accept. Apparently he got miffed and required us to sit at a high-top table, which we hate. The food and server were both good...just the attitude of the greeter caused us to be very disappointed with our experience.

Fantastic food. My husband had the spare rib pasta and I had the swordfish special. Incredible food. Service was good — nothing extraordinary but good. The server was knowledgeable, however the busser took out flatware between courses and never brought us new sets. Luckily we were seated by the stand and could get our own! Overall it was great and we will be back.

Flavio's continues to provide excellent food and service in the Village in a somewhat higher-end atmosphere than some Village places. It's quiet, there won't be a lot of screaming at a TV set at the bar (although the bar does have TV sets), and particularly in the upscale room (which was the original Bella Roma restaurant), you'll have a fine dining experience. The newer bar/ pizza place addition is great and while still upscale, a little more informal. We enjoyed the carbonara (GF pasta for me, always great) and pappardelle, along with a caprese appetizer. Their lobster ravioli appetizer is always excellent, and fine desserts as always. We will be here every year we're in SK.

Bland sauce and the pasta was not homemade. Homemade pasta shouldn’t be cut exactly the same as every other piece of pappardelle. Some pieces were al dente, some were perfect, and some were mush. We will not be coming back.

Everything was great. The food is homemade Italian and the service was impeccable. It's a true family run business with Flavio's mother in the kitchen making the ravioli!
The decor is very good with character ; not sleek and sterile. Enjoy! Make a reservation.

This hit the spot for our group of eight, three of which are gluten free. We had everything from pizza and salads to pasta and seafood. We would defiantly visit again! I highly recommend the LINGUINE ALLA DIAVOLA it was the perfect mix of shrimp and spice.
