    This was a hidden gem. Atmosphere is lovely, food was fresh, service was fast, and prices are reasonable. After we finished dinner we went upstairs to have a cigar and a drink on the rooftop. They have a good selection of cigars and bartenders were great.

    I wanted to love this place so bad! 1 out of 3 main courses were outstanding. The rest had been sitting for hours you can tell. The black ink pasta with octopus was to die for. Skip the cheese and meat plate! They brought out the meat and cheese board with 1 piece of salami. Waitress says oh they were supposed to cut that (one piece) up. Lol ummm def missing some basic level restaurant 101.

    We had the Salmon Special, Pasta Bolognese and Ravioli. All were excellent. Pasta was homemade and perfect. Loved the option of having the smaller Caesar salad for $7, so that we had room for appetizers. We will definitely be back. The menu has something for everyone.

    We loved the ambience and interior decor - very impressive ! The food was very good - tried several items ( meat balls, red snapper, seafood linguini ) and everything was perfect. Our server was superb - very attentive and made our dinner redo's and we loved them both. We were given this restaurant recommendation from our AirBNB Host and he was spot on #1. This was our first visit to Tampa and Ybor City - had a great time and will be back and will dine again at Case Santo Stefano. Very Good - Strong Recommendation

    On a soggy night, Casa Santo Stefano was a warm, lovely, delicious oasis in the storm. The meatballs are not to be missed. The Valenti's Burrata Salad is one of the best I've ever eaten. My family loved their entrees, including the Nana Maria, the linguine and clams and the eggplant lasagne. Don't miss having a cappuccino and a serving of pistachio gelato to finish the meal.

    Overall, much to our disappointment, everything was below average. Service was on the slower side (drinks empty for longer than they should have been) and food took awhile. Would have been ok if the food was worth the wait but it wasn’t. Pasta was over cooked (or sat under a heat lamp too long which seems like may have happened) and was more mush than it should be, especially for the price of $35. Wrong side brought out and food runner disappeared before we could say so. Antipasti board was meh. Eggplant was good but that was the only thing that would be worth having again. I don’t think we will be back. Prices would be fine if the food matched up to the $100 lunch for two people cost.

    Casa Santo StefanoResponded on November 8, 2022We appreciate your patience and apologize for not providing quality service. As for the food, we are sorry it didn't meet your expectations. Please inform your server or a manager of any issues so we can fix them or remake any dish. We do our best to keep prices fair, but we choose not to pay less for inferior products. As you know, overall prices from last year marked the greatest annual increase in 30 years. For value, we believe we're still a great option and hope you choose to return.
