About Casa Ludovico - Palm Harbor, FL
Palm Harbor, FL 34683
Papa Ludovico's Tradition In Italy, Papa Ludovico’s door was always open and everyone was welcome. The tantalizing aroma of fine Italian foods cooking on the stove would draw in friends, friends of friends, and sometimes even strangers... but after sharing a bottle of wine together, strangers became friends. 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!

A return to this restaurant was well overdue. It was one of my favorite gotos and now that my favorite bar person is back it will probably become once again. The squid ink pasta dish was the best I have ever gotten there. Can't wait to return.

We had a reservation for 7:00 and got seated at 7:23. It was a Saturday night and the restaurant seemed to be overbooked. One couple was there for a 6:30 reservation but did not get seated until 7:15. Some people were leaving because of the wait time. The proprietor did not explain that there had been a mistake in bookings earlier in the evening, which caused a backup. We would have understood that explanation. Instead he said we would get a table at some point, but that the reservation for a specific time was never guaranteed, and seemed totally indifferent to our expectations of a restaurant honoring a booking time. Open Table users should be made aware of their policy.
The food was good, in some instances very good, and so we will definitely go back for a second time. Service was attentive, and you could see that the waiters in the restaurant were all trying very hard to be quick, attentive, caring.

Our second visit to Casa Ludovico did not disappoint. The food was out of this world and our server, Kim, was the best. She was professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. We made reservations for our anniversary in January and can't wait to come back.

We made reservations for casa ludivico and we were sat right away. But then, we sat at our table for 15 mins without anyone acknowledging us. Numerous servers walked past and no one came.. we left. Extremely disappointed with the service. Only nice person there was the valet guy who apologized.

I would've given 5 stars but the service was a bit slow and the wait staff were forgetful when asked for something; having said that, we were a party of 9 which I'm sure is a little harder to accommodate/serve.
But we all agreed the food was fantastic!!! My parents are very picky eaters and we rarely have a good experience when we dine out and even they LOVED it! I would highly recommend this restaurant. Great ambiance and very high quality fresh food...we will be back!

Wait service was great, appetizer was very good, entree had watered down sauce on the meat, the pasta was very good. Not sure why restaurants serve bread if they can't do it well. Great wine list with knowledgeable staff.

Food was outstanding and the service was great. Sauce was close to Grandmas! Unfortunately there was a large party next to us with a couple of guys that decided to take obnoxious to a whole new level. It was so loud we could not hear each even when yelling. Not sure if it is always that loud or just when it's crowded.

I was extremely impressed from the moment the valet driver met me as I pulled in the easy access parking lot. The table was ready for my group when we arrived. The food was beyond delicious. The service from Juan and the rest of the team was spot on. The evening is still being discussed several days later. It left a wonderful impression. Thanks Casa Ludovico for making our company holiday dinner a huge success.

Food was excellent, but VERY rushed. Asked us to order everything at once since it was a busy night. Plates were taken away immediately after last bite. Saturday night dinner included appetizer, main course, dessert/coffee and we were out in 50 minutes. Not worth the $150 we spent for 2 people.

The food was excellent and delicious, the server was very nice and respectful, in overall everything was nice. I'm very sure we'll come back to this place more often. The prices are reasonable. Thanks for a great service

The food at Casa is always delicious, fresh and artfully presented. The staff attend to your needs in a friendly, unintrusive fashion, never pushing you to eat and go like some other eateries. I recommend going during the early evening hours, so's to take advantage of their "happy hour" offerings, it tempers the overall cost of the entire evening.

I took my parents out to Casa Ludovico last week, expecting a fine meal. We were seated at a table where the setting sun was shining into their eyes; no shades on the window, no one paying attention. One of us got up and stuck a menu there to block the sun. No one even noticed. The noise level was close to deafening as large groups came in. Also unexpected, since this restaurant is rather intimate feeling, in an old home. Half of our entrees were mediocre, to dry and tasteless, including my $36 entree, with shriveled, tasteless clams and mushy mahi mahi. When we told our waiter of our dissatisfaction, he comped us two desserts. No manager ever came over to talk to us or apologize. I left $200 poorer, disappointed and vowing never to come back...

The Best Italian Restaurant in Tampa Bay! We take every out of town guest of ours to Casa Ludovico as it is consistent as well as the best tasting food you can ask for. The waiters & waitresses are the best, keeping an eye on your table and your needs without being annoying. A Palm Harbor Gem!!

Casa has become one of our favorite restaurants. The staff and all the waiters are wonderful.
Our waiter Rick is amazing, great memory, when we were seated he went to check if there
were Veal Chops available for us to hold, he remembers how we always order that, he also remembers our wine. That day they had an appetizer special, breaded mozzarella with prociutto and spinach, it was incredible. Large portions too. Our special Veal Chop Parmigiana was as always tender and delicious. Always enjoy our dinner.
