Our 'special' place.

My wife and I go here for special occasions...birthdays, anniversaries, etc. The food here is fantastic, and the ambiance is very intimate/cozy. My wife is Italian, and knows cooking, and loves this place! Our service has always been good, but our favorite waiter left the country to go back to... read more

Had dinner with friends a couple nights ago. Immediately upon entering the nice restaurant, I was hit with an unpleasant odor that I did not get used to throughout dinner. Not sure if it was a pet odor smell, but it certainly had a negative impact. I had a veal chop and my wife had a fish dinner. Both entree's... More

Visiting with a group of 15 other golfers, we made our 3rd trip in 5 years to Casa Ludovico. The first two visits (3 and 4 years ago) both the food and the service was excellent. This year, only the service gets this rating to 3 dots (average). The food was sub-par. It appeared tossed on a plate as quickly... More

Authentic italian cuisine with a home town Florida feel. Superbly prepared pastas, veal, chicken and all served in generous proportions. Salads are also yummy. We are lucky to live nearby to make this a regular date night!

I went here with three friends, while on a golf trip at the nearby Innisbrook Resort. We thoroughly enjoyed it here. The ambience is warm, and the service friendly and efficient. We did NOT find it loud. And the food was very good. I had the Chilean sea bass on a bed of spinach--not too original, I know, but it... More

The grilled octopus appetizer was the best I have ever eaten. Cooked to perfection. The sliced tomato and mozzarella superb. The main course Linguini Pescatore was absolutely delicious...baby clams,mussels,shrimp and calamari over perfectly cooked linguini. The olive oil based sauce with some tomato was just right. Service excellent. I really like this place.

We have never been disappointed at this restaurant casa ludovico. But the special heart shaped ravioli was not very good and everyone who tried it, (3 in the party) got sick. So be warned about this special, do not order it. Everything else is great

I wanted to love this place but I didn't. First off, the service was below par. The food was average. All that said I would have returned except that with such a great looking place the noise level was the worst I have experienced in any restaurant that I can recall. The restaurant looks like an interesting Key West style... More

Went to Cafe Ludovico again Saturday night to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Made a reservation days in advance and got seated promptly at a nice table. Waiter came by and offered drinks and then came back to tell us the specials. We ordered a calamari appetizer to share and then a special salad with Buffalo Mozzarella cheese to share and... More

I visited here with my mother on a Friday night. We both knew it was more of a fancier restaurant, so we were probably holding it to a higher standard. I really liked the atmosphere of the place, it was very pretty, but it was also comfortable. We started off with splitting the Arucola e Parmigiano Salad. I was unpleasantly... More
