Favs is located in Downtown Bradenton. They offer some of the best authentic Italian cuisine in all of Bradenton. Even their pizza is delicious. Favs offers seating inside and outside; although there are just 2 or 3 tables outside. Culminating the delicious food, ambience and efficient and knowledgeable service, you have yourself one fantastic restaurant. I highly recommend it over... More

I love this authentic Italian restaurant in my hometown. I recently ordered a dish that was displayed on their "specials" board. Ricotta filled Ravioli with sweet carmelized onions and spinach topped off with Alfredo. Also came with a salad and awesome fresh baked bread. Too much to eat so I brought the remainder home. Leftovers were just as good. Heard... More

When we arrived it was later in the evening and the kitchen was out of one of their pasta specials. We ended ordering a bottle of wine which had good flavor for a reasonable price of $14. The stromboli was decadent! The crust was cook well all the way through so there was no "raw" dough or greasy middle. We... More

We arrived at the restaurant at closing time on a Saturday evening and the server was happy to let us know that there was a chance the menu will be limited, but they'll try to make sure we had a nice dinner. We weren't pressured to order take out and the food quality was delicious and very tasty. Well priced... More

Along with its location on Old Main Street, Fav's has great pizza, an excellent but fairly-priced wine list, and both indoor and outdoor seating.

Food was just ok - had the Stromboli which arrived to my table under-cooked (raw dough on parts of the bottom) and there wasn't much to the dish. Service was average but everyone was very friendly. They may have better dishes as the place appeared to be popular.

The server was new, but really willing to give great service. The pizza was really good and not expensive. I would go back again if in the area. Well done...

I call it a pizza joint because the pizza looked good but the entree's were just average. We started out good with an excellent salad. Chilled crispy greens on a chilled plate . The homemade bread and olive oil dip were excellent. Good start! But then... I figure any Italian restaurant worth its salt takes pride in their red sauce.... More
