Pensare Italian Bistro makes its home in the charming downtown area of Dunedin.

Some dishes served at Pensare Italian Bistro include tortellini, chicken parmesan and ravioli stuffed with both ricotta and lobster. Open during the dinner hour, Pensare Italian Bistro has a full-service bar with an extensive wine collection as well as beers, cocktails and other spirits. A wraparound patio further provides for outdoor seating which allows patrons to enjoy the warm Florida weather while eating.

    The food, wine and service are always very good. The only reason I don't visit more often is the irritating level of noise; to avoid this try and get a table on the terrace when the weather is nice.

    On Mainstreet in Dunedin we were very pleased with the quality pasta, veal and seafood Italian cuisine. Appetizers were good sized and portions nice, also salad or soup included w entrée so plenty of food overall. Seemed pretty authentic and tasted great- will go back for sure- entrees around $20 were very reasonable! Exceelent bread and olive tapenade.

    very disappointing. we have dined here numerous times (30-40)with good results. we always make reservations , on the day after Valentines day we were escorted to a table in the bar , we refused , then how about outside ? we refused and requested the dining room , ( 12 diners seated there ) . our waiter was gruff, had only enough water for 1gl. never returned for the until we asked ,bread did not arrive at the table until after the salad . the pasta seafood dish had one unopened mussel , which should not have been plated. Didn't seem like they knew what they were doing nor did they care . this was our go to place for Italian food ,don't know what happened to them but we have to think twice before going again . TOO BAD.

    Very nice atmosphere but way over priced for the taste and quality of the food. OK for a special occasion but not a everyday kind of place.

    Our experience was not as pleasurable as hoped. Made a reservation over a week in advance and was seated outside (inside tables were available) without being asked if it was ok. We had to request inside seating. Service was marginal. On one of our meals the sauce was burnt. The only option given by our waiter (who took his time asking us if everything was ok) was to have a new meal prepared, which was not acceptable, since the second person was already well into his meal. We thought that we would have at least been offered a free desert but, that never occurred. A credit for the bad meal would have been the correct thing to offer (the chef peaked around the corner a few times but, never came over to see us). Service by our waiter was less than stellar. He was quick to try to sell us a $60.00 bottle of wine but, was slow in most other areas (especially regarding the bad meal). Not planning a return.
