not sure if monday closure is only for the summer
for $10.95,you can't beat it
a little salty but probably a matter of taste
meatballs,sausage,chicken cordon bleu,pork chop,and more, including unique things
there was plenty and it was actually HOT
absolutely worth a visit

My coworker found this restaurant on a trip to Tampa and it was great. The staff was friendly and the portions were generous. We had delicious bruschetta and calamari for appetizers. The bruschetta had cheese melted on it and was addictive like crack! I had a veal dish that was fantastic and the spaghetti with vodka sauce was to die for as the side. Great place!

I've been here many times. Great food, atmosphere and service. Perfect for date night or a special occasion. Not a place to bring kids. Big wine list. You will have leftovers. People watching in ybor is always fun- get a window seat.

The food was delicious and real authentic Italian. The buffet was amazing, I had 3 plates. If you can, try to make it to the buffet Monday – Friday (11am – 3pm).

My husband and I love this place! All our friends and family that we have taken here love this place. Chef Franco is amazing. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Enjoy!
