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

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

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
