Great food, Excellent bartenders, Super service, it just doesn't get any better. Located in an unusual area for a restaurant, it's worth a visit. Nice atmosphere - sit in the bar for a more romantic setting away from children, and the bartenders give great service, too. You won't find better food, great drinks (not watered down like a lot of places in Tampa), and tasty food this good. I've been to a lot of places in Tampa, but this is my absolute favorite.

The veal marsala is the best in town. The house salads are only average (they get a little soggy), but the specialty sauces are amazing--marsala, picatta, etc.

The food is great, prices can be high for dinner maybe do it as a special date night but at lunch the prices are reasonable and the food is great too.

My wife and I count Iavarone's as one of our very favorite restaurants in the Tampa Bay area. We always start with an appetizer of shrimp cocktail. You get jumbo shrimp that are boiled perfectly and served with a cocktail sauce that has the right amount of horseradish. Do your self a favor and order a side dish of the homemade pasta with the princess sauce. The meals are all reasonably priced and the steaks are as good or better than more well known steakhouses in the area.
