About Casa Ludovico - Palm Harbor, FL

Now, Casa Ludovico is proud to share Papa’s traditions in Palm Harbor, Florida. Everyone is welcome to enjoy fine Italian food and wine with both old and new friends. Buon Appetito!

The food was superb, and the Staff was warm and caring, but they never hovered. The atmosphere was wonderful for quiet conversation. An outstanding restaurant. Carmine made sure we enjoyed our first experience, and we we will return!

We dine at Casa Ludovico often. They have a delicious and varied menu and the wait staff always welcomes us with open arms. There is a sausage and truffle oil pasta that is amongst the best dishes I have ever had. The grouper livornese is another favorite.

We were provided with white napkins although my wife was wearing black pants and I was wearing dark gray slacks. I expected more from a supposedly fine dining restaurant. The food came out way to fast to have been freshly prepared. My wife's chicken was not hot, the sauce was but the chicken was not. It appeared they put the sauce over chicken that was being kept warm.

I really liked the atmosphere. I love Italian. Unfortunately, my husband and I felt both our meals were bland in taste. It's not that the quality was bad. It was just bland and didn't have a lot of flavorful taste that Italian food should have. For the price, I'm sorry to say I was disappointed.

We have been to the bar several times and enjoyed. This is the first time we have taken a seat in the dining room. The service was fine. The room is beautiful. The food was .. just OK. I ordered the spaghetti and meatballs. It was a "special" offered. You would think a special would be special, but I found it to be ordinary. The meatballs were just ok. I think meatballs (for $20) should be succulent. The pasta was ok, but needed more sauce. My wife had a veal dish. She thought it was good, but called it "average". Our companion had pasta with vodka sauce. It was good, but I think I could have duplicated it at home. To be fair, we really liked the calamari. We will come by again to have appetizers at the bar. But I doubt we will ever go to the dining room again.

It was out anniversary and we almost always like Casa Ludovico's . The food we had we had was outstanding. The only issue we had was we asked for a wine suggestion by the glass which we took and once we got the bill we were very surprised by the price of $18.00/glass . It would have been polite of the server to let us know the price upfront , since other wines on the menu were not nearly as expensive. Other than that we did have a nice evening and we still will go back but will just be a little more carefull.
Outstanding Food, Service and Value
We heard about this Restaurant from a number of folks and finally took the plunge one Saturday afternoon - and so very glad that we did, as we're always in search of "authentic" Italian cuisine. Well we struck gold here! Everything about this Restaurant was simply outstanding, from the quality (and portions) of the Food to the Service and the overall value. A real "gem" and one that we'll keep as our special "Italian" feast.
Good Italian restaurant
The food was authentic Italian cuisine the service was professional and courteous. The people dining there were LOUD and obnoxious with no regard for felllow diners. Not a place for a romantic dinner for two at all or any kind of conversation.
Very friendly staff doing their best to ...
Very friendly staff doing their best to accommodate on a busy Saturday night. From the complimentary speedy valet to the attentive waiter, we enjoyed the evening immensely. The food was top notch, creative, flavorful and more than enough to satiate the famished. Certainly adding this restaurant to the list of amazing places to dine this side of the bay.
Excellent Italian Cuisine
Valet parking to accommodate a full lot (and it will be). This restaurant has a great local reputation for fine dining. This was my first time there and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The menu specials were very interesting and our party of 6 order one special or another 5 to 1. Service was professional, although a moderate wait for a party that size should be expected. All together a great dining experience. I highly recommend it for the experienced Italian dining customers.
Everything good but the noise level...
Have been a customer for several years and we like the place. However, when it is crowded the noise level becomes impossible. Best on a weekday evening as its noise level is barely passable. On weekend and holidays, only go if you do not want to speak or hear your dining partner. Ask for the price of specials because they are priced quite a bit higher than their menu fare.
