Tasty Venues Cafe, Gift Shop, Culinary Tours
Wonderful experience. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We will definitely return and we highly recommend this restaurant.
This is one of our favorite places to take friends! The food is always fabulous, and the noise level is low for great conversation. Chef is a master, you won’t regret going!
The meal was fabulous & very tasty, just would have liked some warm & or crusty bread with the meal. Bread is always good with Italian food & the wine!!! The chocolate torte dessert was sooo delicious!!!
This is one of the best places in Tampa Bay! They are a unique little place, so we always check to make sure they’re open. Chef Cinzia Is lovely, and her food is amazing! This is the perfect place for a glass of wine, a scrumptious meal, friends and conversation.
We have been here several times for lunch, which had always been fantastic. This was our first visit for dinner and was not disappointed. They entire evening was top notch. We have already booked for their special dinner on May 2.
The Chef, Cinzia Cripe, is a very personable and friendly hostess. Our meals were really tasty-I had the Postcard from Rome (Risotto) and my wife had Matera's Best! (Fettuccine). Basically, situated in a corner of the gift shop, the atmosphere was not as intimate as we were used to,but the hostess and the food more than made up that. As we were leaving (we arrived at the beginning of the serving seating), lights were lowered and the setting did feel more intimate.
Wonderful place!! Home cooked meal; fresh bread from a local baker. I highly recommend this place.
Food is great. When you first sit down it seems a little odd because you are in a store. But its fun to look around while you are waiting for your food to be served.
This is a special little place with delicious, fresh food created by a great chef. The gift shop offers unique, imported items such as wine, clothes, jewelry as well as local crafts, artisanal breads, and more.
