“So-So at best - Very Over Priced! Stay Away!!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

My family ate here due to the reviews on trip advisor - a poor rating on the food is being kind! Pizza was good where it was not burnt on one side of the crust, and the pasta dishes my teenagers had were very bad - sauce was not good at all. Our local family owned Italian restaurant in the Orlando area is 100 times better and much cheaper! For a pasta meal to be $17.95 and NOT come with a salad is ridiculous! And then side salads to be $7.95 and $8.95 each is down right crazy!! This restaurant is located in the tourist section of Siesta Key and is only surviving with tourists. We had two pasta meals, two side salads and a pizza and no drinks and our meal was $85 before tip. The only good thing at this restaurant is the waiters were nice and quick to refill waters. Would NOT recommend this location!

“Worth the trip!”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

My husband and I celebrated our 21st anniversary dinner here. We started out with a buffalo monzzarella appetizer that was so tasty and unique. We then shared a four seasons pizza and a special mushroom pasta they featured for that night. These 2 meals complemented one another so well and each were absolutely delectable!! We ended the meal with two amazing homemade desserts, made by "Ms. Flavio" herself: tiramisu and chocolate almond cake with mocha icing!! Joseph was our waiter, and he was fabulous and very attentive! This is a place my husband and I would definitely recommend and would love to return to someday

“Top-notch!!”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

We visited with our kids thinking this was just a pizza place. They have a full menu of traditional Italian food with specials that sounded mouth-watering. We were quickly greeted, and seated promptly despite a full-house. Staff was super attentive, refilling water glasses, checking on the quality, etc. They were each well-versed on the menu and had excellent suggestions for our group. We had the wood fired pizzas and they were amazing!!!! The crust was crisp, but chewy, and the toppings and combinations were flavorful. The ambience is playful but also relaxing. Highly recommended!

“Nice atmosphere, disappointing food”
Reviewed August 4, 2014 via mobile

Went here largely based on other trip advisor reviews. The food was over priced and not up to our expectations. Maybe we're lucky in that our local Italian restraurants are especially good? We usually stick with independently owned restraurants and are seldom disappointed but we can only say our visit to Flavios was average at best.

“Excellent”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

We've visited Italy and I felt like we were back there.
Exceptional service, drinks, and atmosphere.
Food was excellent. Four people. Had calamari, sampler appetizer(don't remember the name), two pizzas and tiramasu.
Food was reasonably priced but drinks are high.
Will revisit when we're back in town.
