Located in Ybor City, Tampa. This place was recommended to us to get a bite to eat by a shop owner. From 4-7 pm they have $2 martini's and half price entrees! We got there just after 4:00 for a early dinner. Luckily we did, because by 5 the place was packed! Great atmosphere, great food! Definitely go there when you're in Ybor City!!

This is really a great restaurant. Be prepared, it is a little loud. My husband and I have been going to Tampa for many years now and we just found this restaurant last month. This restaurant serves good Italian food. Our main attraction to the restaurant is the fact that they have half-price entrees from 4 to 7 p.m. Also they serve $2.00 martinis during that time. Our waiter, Ty, was very attentive, but really busy. We enjoyed the crispy duck and the pistachio crusted grouper and had chocolate cake for dessert. Next time I can't wait to try the veal lasagna. Enjoy!

My friends and I were about to keep walking by this place. The manager and some of his staff were outside and convinced up to have a seat outside. We had martinis. The staff were great and that's why I recommend this place.

We visited Bernini's with a group of 30 fellow RVers. To arrive with such a crowd definitely presents unique challenges. The seating, as a consequence, was a bit crowded, and the noise level in the restaurant was a bit loud. Our waitress was somewhat hindered by the crowded conditions, but she coped beautifully and was very efficient and friendly. The food proved to be excellent in quality and quantity. I had the tortolini carbonara which was served with very good sliced Italian sausage and crispy pancetta, and roasted pistacios. My wife ordered the salmon and was more than pleased. She said it was very moist, cooked just right, and very flavorful - this from a woman who spent ten summers in Alaska eating tons of salmon. Now for the kicker. Weeknights between 4 and 7, all the entrees and pasta dished are half price. The vodka martinis are all $2.00. Appetizers were $4.00 each. We had Beef Carpaccio and it was excellent. We plan to visit this restaurant again when we are in the area.

$2 martinis were strong, which is how we like them! The mango was delicious but the Cosmo wasn't good. BBQ chicken pizza was yummy. The beef carpaccio was not good and was covered in greens with more capers than beef. Loved the atmosphere and architecture! You can walk in and think you are in a different country. Beautiful staircase and really unique pizza oven.
