We watched this place as it was completed over time, hoping for a good Italian restaurant in St. Pete---we got just OK. The décor and design are wonderful. However, the food was just OK. The menu was fine, but the food lacked good Italian flavor. The Bolognese sauce was thin and not very good in flavor. The Italian sausage had... More

Last night my husband and I returned to this restaurant which I have reviewed several times. An abrupt woman walked up to us and said, didn't ask, "Reservation or a walk-in" as she looked at the people walking in behind us. I laughed and said "well, we walked-in and no reservation so I guess we're walk-ins." I was caught off... More

Went here for dinner last night with a large group of women. The ambience of the restaurant was very nice, the bar was just the right size and perfect for friends to sit and talk before going to dinner. An added plus was that they had Peroni on tap. The Pasta Alfredo I had was delicious, and the dishes that... More

The food was good and portion size excellent. I had chicken and spinach ravioli. The chicken could have been ground up and that would have made it better. The service was OK but not special and the table cloth on the table was dirty and should have been replaced before we sat down. Nothing really special. Price was right for... More

Had lunch there this week and was very disappointed. The soap was lukewarm and the pasta was mushy. My wife had a salad with steak. Steak was cook perfect. The rest was a joke. Canned oranges and old strawberries. The dressing was poor in texture and flavor. The lettuce was not mixed greens but just romaine lettuce I had the... More

My daughter and I were looking for a good dish of pasta and saw this restaurant. We were met at door and shown to our table by a lovely girl who introduced herself as our waitress. We both ordered a glass of house wine and commented on how nice and cold it was. For appetizer we ordered grandfathers pizza well... More

I went to dinner here this Saturday, June 28th and it was such a great experience. My family and I came in a little bit late, close to 9 and it was very busy. They also had some music going on downstairs. I had the veal picata with house-made fettucini it was so delicious I wanted to lick my plate.... More

Went to Bella Cucina with 8 friends looking for some dinner to round out our day in St. Pete. We all ordered and it took the better part of an hour to receive our dinner meals. When we inquired about the delay, a person who appeared to be a manager, although he didn't identify himself as one (he could have... More

I wanted to treat my daughter to a nice place to have lunch downtown. I told her about Moscatos new location so we stopped. I loved the Tuscan décor, very spacious with high ceilings, exposed brick and bright cheery tablecloth's. I ordered the special of the day Mai-Mai wrap with smoked gouda and spinach, it came with a small salad... More
