After traveling to Italy and experiencing authentic Italian cuisine this restaurant takes us back there every time. We have been to this special place several times and the only Italian restaurant we patronize. The seating area is small so reservations recommended or arrive early. The house wines are excellent white and red. Once you try it you will return.

Friendly with wonderful Italian food. The freshness of the attente homemade pasta to the fresh seafood with a taste of Italy not like those chain restaurants that overdo sauces and seasoning. Prices were reasonable in one of best Italian restaurants in Tampa.

My husband and I stumbled on this lovely restaurant and fell in love with it immediately. The restaurant is very small but that adds to the charm of it. It is entirely run by the family and you can tell that each dish is made carefully and with great expertise on how true Italian food should be. The limited tables... More

Ok... so I get it... Spartaco may not be your favorite owner. But if you let that stand in your way... you are missing out on the best Tampa has to offer. Wonderful food. Great staff. Take their recommendations... they listen to what you like... then exceed your expectations with what they suggest. Really fantastic meals. Authentic. We love it.

This very unassuming restaurant in a small shopping center in south Tampa, always turns out amazing food. It is small but intimate. There are daily specials and then the regular menu items. I love the way the way they prepare seafood - whether the fish special or mussels. One of my all time favorites is the lobster ravioli! Definitely worth... More

We waited two hours in a little wine bar two doors down from this restaurant and were finally seated at around 9 p.m. (the wine bar was excellent--great, friendly service, excellent wines, and delicious food to snack on--try the the pate). The restaurant calls the wine bar when your table is ready. The wait was worth it: this was among... More

I had Chicken Parmasean....the chicken was a bit tough and not too much flavor....they did not bread the chicken first. The pasta is the best!! You can tell by the sauce.... More

This is a small restaurant, which does not take reservations. When they seat you, they serve warm bread and an olive tapenade which was wonderful. We had a pasta appetizer, the restaurant has fabulous house made pasta. For entree, I had a special with shrimp and smoked salmon in an alfredo sauce over penne pasta. My husband had steak, which...
