Bernini's quality is consistent, and they offer a flavorful array of pasta, meat, and seafood entrees. They also have a gas-fired pizza oven (completely understand why they don't want to tote wood in every day) that provides a light and crispy crust with fresh toppings. The bartender delivers flavorful and refreshing cocktails, and Bernini also offers a decent wine selection... More

If you like Italian this is the place for you. I have eaten here numerous times and they have never let me down. They have a pizza oven that makes some of the best pies in town.

The atmosphere and culture in the building were gorgeous. Unfortunately, the pizza was not great. Calimari was above average.

Had dinner with family, the food was great and tasty, all had something different. If you go before 7 pm, the drinks and entrees are half price, making it very affordable for a high end Italian restaurant.

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.
