Food was very good and service excellent.
We always enjoy Flavios. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. The atmosphere is lively, although at times can be noisy and crowded. When we sit at the bar, we always have excellent service and fun conversations. This time we brought friends and everyone was pleased with their meals. Although they were extremely busy on a Friday night in season, the server was attentive and everything was served in reasonable time and hot.
If you like the lively Siesta Key vibe, Flavios is a great choice!
Food is consistently very good. The service was particularly outstanding this time as
Alejandra was very sensitive to my wife's food allergies and accommodated all of her wishes.
She was also very attentive to our needs. Authentic Italian cuisine.
Days ahead reservation gave us a table clear in the back, all tables around us had reserved, not ours. Male host was short and rude. Waitress awesome.
Visited friends in Siesta Key. Ate at Flavio's upon their recommendation. Great advice. The food and service were exceptional.
Excellent! We went to celebrate a birthday. At the end of the meal a tiramisu arrived with a candle in it for the birthday person.
We chose this restaurant on Open Table. We had a party of 6 and reservation was at 6:15, so during happy hour. VERY NOISY. Limited seating for 6, so we were seated right at door. Felt very crowded. Food was good ... might consider it for a party of 2 or 4, though. Disapointed!!
This was our third trip to this restaurant and our first 2 were very good. The food is good! The owner isn't friendly and walks around the entire time, making what appear to be random table selections. We had a reservation and we're out at a tiny table in the hall between dining areas. We will give it another try, as our first couple of visits were positive.
Each year while in siesta we dine at Flavio's. Wonderful every time. The service is outstanding- so friendly and professional. The wine pour is very generous which I always like. The bread was fresh and delicious. Our caprese was a good size and fresh and tasty. We had 2 orders of the gnocchi with vodka sauce and though one diner said it needed more vodka- the other LOVED it. The lobster ravioli special was well liked and I enjoyed my ravioli dish so much so that I ate them all. The sauce was yummy. Our chocolate cake for dessert was okay- I really think we were all just too full to really enjoy it! See you next year!
Food was excellent , however, since it was a birthday dinner it would have been extra special if complimentary dessert was served to them. Helena excellent server.
WAIT TIME TO BE SERVED WAS MUCH TOO LING!!Suggested Flavio’s for our visitors first time to Siesta Key. Our reservation was for 7:00, we didn’t get served our partial order until 8:15. One in our group waited and waited for his meal, we all were served but not him. I finally asked our server, I was embarrassed because was our suggestion.and was told yes coming, still not served until I asked a young lady. Not even an apology for forgetting him. On the positive the food is good.
great venue, food and service was excellent, and Johnny Russo was fabulous entertainment
Food was very good. Service was very accommodating as they held our table when we were 45 minutes late. I would like to see salt and pepper mills at each table. I did think the tables were a little too close together which made circumventing them difficult for both the servers and diners. Music was enjoyable and not intrusive to our conversations. Definitely recommend this restaurant.
Great service, great atmosphere, great food. My 14 year old daughter thought the server “got” her.
One of the best meals, our waitress was wonderful
Sorry.....just too many snotty people front desk hosting and managers checking up on our party.
Good pizza - good waiter - good value. Party of 8 will never go back.
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.
Always good food, and excellent service!
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.
Nice atmosphere and good food.
Flavios is great food, atmosphere and wait staff. All bartenders are extremely knowledgeable and excellent with cocktails creations.
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.
Not the best table location. Food and service quite good. Drinks so so.
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!!
The meal was very good. The service was slow. We were seated at a table that was in a hallway that connect two dinning rooms. Over fifty customers and wait servers
pass my table. I told the waiter, he just smiled and said it was the oldest part of the restaurant. He did not offer to change my table. I spoke to the owner on the way out, he said next time he would give us a better table. There will not be a next time.
Ii using open table doesn’t insure a descent table, why use it.
Great bar scene, attentive owner and waiter, Joe!
It was a great date night for us and we love how it so convenient to park. We will definitely be back!!
My husband was craving spaghetti carbonara and Flavio's makes the best! I know we will be back soon!
Always have great tasty meals at Flavio’s. The Shrimp and Black Pasta was wonderful., shrimp done perfectly.
Good food and service, greatly overprice. Poor ambiance and poor table.
Food was classic Italian, nothing out of the ordinary. Small wine list. Service was OK although the place was packed. But it was the noise that did us in! Impossible to carry on a conversation. We will not go back.
Great food supported by very friendly service and warm atmosphere.
Great service from Joseph. Food was delicious, especially the evening specials. Lamb chops and ravioli was well prepared and tasty. Great new space in the bar dining area and the live music was a nice touch and not too invasive. Complimentary limoncello was a nice touch at the end of our meal. Will definitely be back.
Enjoyed our meals and atmosphere. While we were staying in Siesta Key we frequented this restaurant.
My wife and I have dined at Flavio's on many occasions and we have never been disappointed. We dined there again Friday, January 26 and once again it was very good. My wife decided to eat a lighter meal and she ordered the sushi grade tuna appetizer with a dinner salad and was very pleased. I ordered the Linguine Fra Diablo special and was also very pleased - the meal was perfectly prepared with a little spiciness to it which I enjoyed very much. We found a nice bottle of Chardonnay on the wine list to complement the meal that we enjoyed as well. Our server provided great service and appeared at just the right time throughout the evening. We can add this occasion to the other occasions that we've dined at Flavio's in which we were very satisfied with the meal.
It was crowded when we arrived but got a table right away, took almost 15 just to get water
service was slow to begin but then finally got better.
The food was amazing, but service was super slow and inattentive. It took 2 1/2 hours from when we were seated to when we left -- and we only ordered entrees, no apps, no dessert. The waitress never stopped by our table to explain the long wait for the food. When we called her over, she said the veal chop took a long time to cook, and asked if we wanted a second round of drinks but didn't offer to bring more bread. The pasta was the best I've ever had, but the dining experience left a lot to be desired.
Great Italian Restaurant; excellent pizzas-brick oven baked and delicious entree selections as well. Very friendly staff and our favorite waiter is Kyle, in the bar area. He is excellent!
