Slightly more mature waiter was excellent. Antipasto was good. But the special Truffle pasta purses with creamy wild mushroom sauce was just incredibly great. Matched with our bottle of Falanghina wine, a memorable meal. We preffered to sit in a quieter area of the bar as the bright white tableclothed dining room seemed less appealing. All staff very gracious and professional.

To be fair, we tried only one fire roasted pizza. The ingredients were top quality and it really was fire roasted. I just was not impress witht the overall product. Not sure how they cooked it overall, but nice crust, mushy over the crust and cool on top. Did they fire roast it too fast and not cook the rest? We'll try it again.

We headed out to have dinner at Bella Roma having not been there for some time. We were surprised when we pulled up to see the name Flavio's. Rather than turn away, we venture in to find it was the same owner but a new name. We enjoyed the great food that has drawn us back here before. The wait staff was, as it always has been very attentive. We dined on egg plant and veal parmigiana, zuppa di peace and saltimbocca. All our meals arrived at the same time and were thoroughly enjoyed by all. The restaurant offers free valet parking at night which is really a great convenience on Siesta Key this time of year. If you are looking for a special evening out, or just a great italian meal, Flavio's is the place in Siest Key.

I am a return visitor here and had another great experience. Let's begin by saying the service and atmosphere was wonderful with a fairly authentic Italian menu.

The food was excellent - all well prepared and good tasting. The wine list has a good number of Italian wine options. Our Italian server was very friendly & helpful in explaining menu options.

It is a very comfortable atmosphere and our meal service was paced so we could enjoy a good meal & conversation. I plan on returning in the future.

Ciao ciao.

Authentic italian food. It's beautiful inside the restaurant. Used to be an English restaurant, completely redone now. Antipasti platter was excellent. The margherita pizza was fantastic--real woodfired oven pizza. Crust excellent. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Waitress gave us complimentary shots of authentic Limoncello. And make sure to save room for one of the many dessert choices. The Cannolli was fabulous!
