One of those places too easily passed by when looking from 20,000 feet; however, once grounding one-self it's the close view that catches your attention. Hidden between a couple of hundred other restaurants, bars, and shops along Ybor City's Main Street (actually 7th Avenue) this Italian restaurant presents a hidden jewel of flavorful appetizers, entrees and deserts. Tonight, we dined... More

I've been there with some friends on a monday night and there wasnt many options in The town that day, so we chose this place and had a real nice surprise. I ordered a gnochi with beef ragu which was a big plate and tasteful too. I also had a glass of wine, the Service was very quick and we... More

We went here on a recommendation from a close friend. Boy, after it is all over, this one of the worse meals we have ever had in Tampa. There are so many better Italian places and to suffer with this one, is pathetic at best. Service was poor, food came out Luke warm, even after food was delivered, I asked... More

My husband and I have eaten several times at Bernini in Ybor City. There is a full bar and tables outside, downstairs in front of the bar and upstairs. It is located in an original building in Ybor. In it's past life it was a bank. Their 1/2 price dinner specials are amazing. They also have drink deals as well.

We were looking for a place to eat that was close to the Tampa Convention Center, Straz Performing Arts, and several Tampa museums, and I found Bernini's on Google. We really didn't know what to expect, but WOW! The food was excellent!! We ordered a wood-fired pizza and the Pork Osso Buco and both were amazing! And $3 martinis! But... More

Food here was just ok. We had veal parmigiana, soup, sausages. Not bad but not great. Kind of high priced for the quality.

What a gem of a find during a long weekend in Tampa! The entree's are half priced and the $3 martini selection is fabulous! A friend & I shared the grouper and the penne sicilia. Both were good. Take the street car and enjoy a good meal!

I dine at Bernini's about twice a month. My last visit was to celebrate my birthday. The only difference in this visit from others, was the server. Lamarl was excellent! He made my birthday and the dining experience special! as a server, he was attentive, he knew the menu and he appropriately paced the order. Thanks Lamarl! Oh, I should... More

We have lunch here regularly. The brick oven pizzas are great and perfectly sized for two people. Great service.

We wanted to eat outside to enjoy watching the people and activity and mistakenly ordered sandwiches. They were poor to awful! My turkey caprese sandwich had tasteless store bought turkey and tiny mozzarella balls cut in half rather than nice slices of mozzarella. The bread was slathered with what was supposed to be basil mayo but had a weird orange... More
