Flavio's Brick Oven Bar - Siesta Key

$30 and under
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!

An Excellent young lady was our waiter and all the stars are for her. She was only one smiling for the customers. The bosses were very crumpy and gave orders to the waiters. Everybody looked very unhappy.
Caprese would been better if mozzarella have been little bit warmer and basil should be fresh. The pizza was raw in the middle.
The previous time we are here, everything was good.

We visit Flavio’s every time we are in Siesta Key. It’s a fabulous restaurant, with delicious food and great service. They make several things fresh in-house, like pasta, tiramisu, and limoncello.

Whenever we’re in Siesta Key, we make sure we dine at Flavio’s. Family owned and operated, the family is from Italy. They make their own delicious pastas and pasta sauces from scratch, and you can taste the freshness. The shrimp, scallop and pasta dishes are wonderful. As are the deserts. Love their thin crust pizza as well. The chef is amazingly creative!

Abbondanza!

We have come here several times. The food is good. This review is on the Staff and management.
The table next to ours was very loud and clearly been drinking. They had several bottles of wine. The table was extremely loud and was swearing. When we addressed it to our waiter Nick he said to us it’s not my table. Management did nothing about the very drunk four people. It was very uncomfortable for the whole restaurant! I will never ever go back.

We really enjoyed this place! The quality of food was what made it for us. It’s worth putting on your list for a nice dinner. I’m a little fussy about Italian, growing up in NY, and this pick worked for me. The only thumbs down was the parking. Valet only and plenty of spots available to self park and they wouldn’t let us self park?

EXCELLENT Neapolitan style pizza!! The best I have ever had! I almost wanted to eat it crust first. So crispy and still so chewy; dare I say, perfection?! My plan was to eat half and take home the rest but my taste buds demanded that I finish it all, so I had no choice. No regrets! With everyone speaking in Italian it adds a lot to the already great atmosphere and ambiance. Of the several places we have dined at while visiting Siesta Key, Flavio's had the best service by a country mile. Pro-Tip: get a side of Marinara to dip the crust in. Its like amazing flavor x amazing flavor squared. We cannot wait to go back!

Quality and taste of this gem right in Siesta Beach is topnotch. Would have liked a broader menu, however the specials provide more options.

Ordered a veal dish that looked like it had been boiled, and was one of the chewiest things I’ve ever eaten, trying to cut it with the butter knife I was given was also a challenge. I won’t return

Slow service. The server kept walking by us, and finally, after 15 minutes, I was able to grab another server working up front who assisted us. The owner is cranky, always unless he knows you. Always seams mad. I return for the coktails.

This was our first time at Flavio’s, but it won’t be our last. The three of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We didn’t order any appetizers, but the bread and breadsticks with dipping oil was provided and was a generous basketful. Our three entrees were lobster ravioli, short ribs with papardelle and veal rollatini with a Marsala mushroom sauce. All of the entrees were perfect, in our opinion. Ivan, our server, was very friendly and attentive. All in all, this was a great meal in a relaxing environment.

To keep it short the waiter was super helpful and nice throughout the entire process but the food quality was pretty poor had to return 2 filet mignon ($42 each). The ny strip was edible but don’t recommend it but the chicken corbon bleu was pretty good.

We are sorry to hear you did not like the filet mignon, please accept my invitation to try another meal at our Siesta Key location at no charge. Please ask for me at the restaurant when you come in. ~Flavio
