Our first visit to this little place in a moderately upscale shopping area near Safety Harbor FL. The decore is a mixture of blacks and greys, very attractive. The staff has engaging smiles and greet you warmly. Happy hour from 3 to 7 each evening with $2 off all drinks not just well and house wines. There is a couples prix fixe menu 3 courses for $25 so you can eat here very reasonably or you can order a la carte for a good value when you consider the quality of the food and service.
Our table of four had salads, a pork osso buco, a delmonico steak and two of us had the grilled scallops and shrimp over angel hair pasta. Portions were large and very well done. The scallops and shrimp were cooked just to done, tender and moist, wonderful flavor when combined with the silky cream sauce of the pasta. The steak was nicely grilled even at medium well temperature (I like my beef rare) it was flavorful and juicy. The pork osso buco with garlic mashed potatoes was very tasty with a very flavorful demi glace and was a very healthy sized portion.
The manager stopped by to check on all tables and offer his thanks for our patronage.

Very good food, a little on the pricey side, but still amazing and fresh and good! Eat at Besa for casual or formal dining experiences!

We came in about 2 hours prior to we needed to leave for a show at Ruth Eckerd. Food was great, but the waitress was so busy socializing...we could hardly get her attention. Too bad, the food was very tasty, but the service so poor we will likely not go back. We never got dessert, because it was not brought to our table until it was time for us to leave. Looks like there are lots of reviews like outs. Until the management improves service the food won't be enjoyed.

I love this place for so many reasons! Their roast duck nachos and cucumber cilantro margaritas are to DIE for! Sunday Prime Rib dinners are beyond good. The service is impeccable, the outdoor furniture and seating is shockingly comfortable and homey, and the interior ambiance is chic yet casual. Their attention to details, unique food and drink options, and consistently fantastic service and taste makes this place an easy favorite. Oh, and the Wednesday happy hour specials are the best!!!
