Description: Flavio's Brick Oven and Bar has been serving delicious Italian delicacies for more than 20 years. Owner/Chef Flavio Cristofoli, is now proud to be offering mouthwatering brick oven style pizza. You can almost smell the amazing aroma from across the bridge. Or course, you can pair any dish with the perfect glass of wine from the extensive wine selection. Or, feel free to choose from an assortment of handcrafted cocktails. Every evening the choice is yours. An elegant dinner or casual brick oven pizza. Either way you can't go wrong

We went here on a Friday night when we couldn't get into anywhere else...just got into town, and wanted a down and dirty sandwich place I guess. The pizza side was packed, but the upscale Italian rest. was rather empty. We were prepared for dinner in t-shirts and shorts, so we felt a bit under dressed, but we were warmly welcomed by Tito, and he was attentive and helpful...and very pleasant to our 5 year old daughter. Everyone loved their food...with one exception...my entree. I ordered the sausage and rapini pasta. My wife makes this so I kind of wanted to compare and contrast. It looked like and had the texture of cat food and was not very tasty. The rapini was finely minced and made me think it may have been frozen. All else was lovely. Service, apps, desert.

We like everything about this restaurant. The expansion to include pizza ovens and bar made it even better than it's been.
It was the first Italian restaurant we went to 20 years ago when we first moved to Sarasota. It is simply perfect.

The calamari was terrific, and for the entree, I had the salmon penne. All I can say is awesome food! Great atmosphere and pleasant service! Give it a try for a great Italian meal while in Siesta Key Village!

Went to the new Flavio's Brick Oven & Bar section of this restaurant and had a very nice evening with tasty food (lasagna) and excellent wine in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. The service was very good. Flavio's interior style is a bit funky and would probably not pass as Italian among Italians, but this is Florida!
