Casa Ludovico remains my top Italian pick in the Palm Harbor area. This place is special and the cuisine is unique in the way it it prepared and presented. It is still the only place I know here, that offers black pasta and when it is combined with crab and clams in a white wine sauce, it is outstanding. The... More

This is a nice restaurant in an old house on Alternate 19. The decor is lovely with white tablecloths and a good atmosphere. The service is excellent. The food was just average and was expensive. I paid $30, including tax and tip for piece of completely unseasoned grilled mahi and sliced grilled zucchini and eggplant along with a glass of... More

Very good choices of non-standard Italian fare but the portions are so big the you get full looking at the plate. Sure you can get a doggie bag but you could get take-out too if you want to warm up food and eat at home. On at least 2 occasions we were initially seated by the bathroom...do we look like... More

Food, drinks and service are all good here. Their one downfall is their parking. They have a small lot on site and use valet service so if you don't like valet you can park in an area they have about a block and a half from the restaurant. You may (or may not) find space there.

I'm a NY'er Italian...I had the veal parmasian and the only complaint was way too much sauce floating on the plate but penne pasta was al dente and delish.. the bread was hard the olive oil to dip the bread needed seasonings..and the regular salad at 6.00 was only green leaf lettuce with one tomato in it (no onions, carrots...

First and last time experience at Casa Ludovico. Think it silly to have valet service for my car to be parked 15 feet away from front door. Food was fair at best for all 5 people at table. Service- terrible. Value- terrible, over priced .

We have been to Casa Ludovico's only one time, but are anxious to to go back again. The entire staff was very attentive and our entrees were generous. The Black Spaghetti is a 'must try'. Don't miss out on this experience.

One of the nice places in North Pinellas. It's and old house converted to a nice linen covered table restaurant with authentic Italian dishes and fine wine list. Maybe seen as a little on the pricey side but not for the food and service they offer. I've eaten there a few times with no issues.

Including last week, we've gone to Casa Ludovico over ten times in the past 2 years and consider it one of the top Italian restaurants in the Tampa area. Cozy atmosphere, excellant food, drinks and service. The staff are very attentive and make every effort to respond to special requests. If available, the grilled octopus appetizer is really good. We'll... More

Casa Ludivico feels like dinner at your favorite Italian relative's home. Nestled in a lovely old house, food is prepared with care, served by knowledgeable waiters, attentive and helpful to your needs. Dinner begins with warm bread, dense with flavor and crust accompanied by a bowl of olive oil with delicious salty olives. House wines are reasonably priced and enjoyable... More
