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!

Seated for over 18 minutes with on staff interaction. Made a reservation on OpenTable with Gabbiano’s a block down the street and has exceptional service.

We visit Siesta Key at least 6 times a year and ate at least once per trip at Flavio’s.
This time we arrived early and were told we would have to wait for our reservation time to be seated. Had wine at the bar and observed numerous open tables while waiting. We were then seated in the back of the new section on the left of the bar. After 15 minutes of waiting, used OpenTable to secure a reservation elsewhere.

A great place to go in Siesta Key Village. The special veal chop parmigiana was to die for!

Table was on the porch by the front door. The traffic by the door, the people not knowing what door to enter, and motorcycles on the street made it a less than pleasant experience. My recommendation is to dine inside.

Food and service were good.

Flavio’s never disappoints. Relaxing atmosphere, where else can you go from the beach in a bathing suit and tee shirt and experience great food and service.

Our party of four ate a Flavio’s on Monday 2/12. We are recent residences of Siesta Key and had friends visiting from Marco Island. I knew from a previous experience and from others that Flavio’s was probably the best restaurant on SK so we made a reservation as we wanted the best experience for our guests. Joseph was our server and he made the experience fun from start to finish. He has been there 27 yrs and still espouses a sincere passion for the food. All of us absolutely loved our selections from salad to desert. My wife and I split the Lasagna which was the best ever and enough for the two of us. We will definitely be back and ask for Joseph when we do.

Server was very inexperienced and it showed I recommend more training/shadowing if you’re going to give a new server a 5 too on a very busy Saturday night @ 6:30 reservation. Our food was ok, fish special in parchment paper had to be sent back it was raw. My pesto & scallops pasta was beyond el dente and flavorless, so I ate the scallops and left the pasta our waiter never came back to check and we were entertaining guests so I didn’t want to raise a second flag after the fish.
Lots of choices in Sarasota and on SK so will not be going back to Flavios except for an occasional happy hour in the bar!!
