This Italian restaurant is located in St Pete downtown. Atmosphere is cozy, nice, and servers are efficient, polite, and make you feel at home. We had the vegetable pizza and the white bean hummus that was an interesting surprise of texture, taste, and originality. Highly recommend it. Prices are affordable.

For the value, Bella Brava cannot be beat. Elegant yet simple Tuscan style Italian. Very Yummy, great location!

If you dine inside, bring earplugs. Outside be sure to ask for a table next to the valet, brings back memories of your favorite bus station. I ordered Ahi Tuna Carpaccio, it came with no sauce. I asked for Wasbi sauce and was curtly told they do not serve it. The Beef Carpaccio, however, comes with horseradish sauce. Recommended if you think the chef knows more about how you like your food seasoned than you do.

My favorite place on Beach Drive. Casual but a very nice place. Bar is usually hopping. Great menu, excellent food. You can valet park for free which is a awesome feature in downtown St. Pete. Make sure you put this place on your list.

Since moving from Central Avenue to Beach Drive in St Petersburg, this restaurant did improve its atmosphere with a more open air feel than before. However, nothing would draw me back to this place except the view of lovely Beach Drive, which you can find elsewhere. We started with a nice bottle of red wine with the intent of ordering dinner. After trying the goat cheese appetizer and the white bean hummus appetizers, we decided to try another place for dinner. There were 2 thin slices of goat cheese, placed over a shallow bowl of tomato sauce,a drizzle of pesto served with toast. The white bean hummus was thick, gummy and served with extremely salty parmesan pita slices and salty olives. The service was really just average (maybe because we sat outside)? I suppose places like this stay in business because of their name and location but for the price, the food could be MUCH better.
