Fine Italian Fare

The food and service were excellent. The wine needed to be filtered, and the first two of my selections on the Italian wine list were not in stock, so finally asked the waiter to tell me what they Did have in stock. His selection was perfect, but had considerable sediment which made it look... read more

Always a great meal at Casa Ludovico. The Penne ala Nocina is not to be missed. Octopus appetizer is also always cooked to perfection. Great drink deals at happy hour also.

Very cozy feeling with a great menu and wine list. Our servers were extremely knowledgeable and even recommended a bottle of wine comparable to the one we ordered.It was a winner. Great food and Carmine was a personable owner.

Really, having lived in Naples Italy a number of years I can attest that this is the best Italian in Tampa Bay, and there are a number of good ones here. Service by Juan and staff excellent, food fabulous, and the atmosphere always great in this meticulously restored old Florida home. Although our favorite white wine, a Falanghina which is... More

ABSOLUTELY NO substitutions. Staff and owner very arrogant. If you don't like what's on the menu, leave. Cute house turned restaurant, upscale but very loud.

Standard Italian cuisine at a higher price. Service was OK. There really was nothing to rave about. I felt we could go to one of the chain Italian restaurants and get equal food.

Casa Laudivico is a little hidden gem in Palm Harbor. If you are seeking authentic this is the place to go. In a renovated house, it is a small intimate setting to enjoy, wine, italian food and homemade desserts. We both ordered Veal Parm, the portions are large and the taste was the best. If your looking to impress this... More

By far one of my favorite Italian restaurants. Authentic food. Slightly pricey, but food, wine, and ambiance is worth it! I highly recommend their pounded veal special.

My wife and I are both 100% Italian from NYC and we agree that this is the best all around Italian cuisine in Pinellas and that includes St. Petersburg. The service is always excellent and we never hesitate to bring visitors from up north to this fine restaurant. My favorite dish is the black pasta with crab meat and clams... More

Small intimate restaurant that is cozy and comfortable. great food and service too. The owner is there all of the time and makes sure everything is to your liking. Had friends in from out of town and they wanted to eat at a local better restaurant. I took them here and they loved this place. Fine dining in a relaxed... More
