I had the pleasure of dining at Fav's last week. The food was very good and the service even better. In addition to the Italian menu there are specials. I had the salmon over garlic mashed potatoes. Extremely tasty and well presented.

Superb food, great service, homemade bread, great wine by the bottle at very reasonable prices. We love this restaurant. The location is close to Bradenton’s river walk and it has it all - great food and “Cheer’s” type friendly atmosphere.
