The owner stopped by and greeted everyone placing a Togo order. I ordered the lasagna. Not what I expected but it was a good atmosphere for drinks after work.

A bad dining experience. Lunch today with fourteen friends, our server had our table and another large table to take care of and her service was awesome. Not so much for the food. I ordered lasagna and a side Caesar. The salad was nothing but romaine stems, how did this get out of the kitchen. The lasagna was dry and... More

It's been a while since we have eaten dinner at Iavarone's. Perhaps it is because we didn't think they took reservations but they definitely do now. We arrived and were seated in a booth in the rear of the restaurant. I noticed the atmosphere hadn't changed in years. It is still dark but for a large restaurant, very quiet. Could... More

This place is a little off the main drag but the food was great. I had a filet that was lean, tender, flavorful, and delicious. We shared a large piece of chocolate cake and it was wonderful!

Iavarone's is a family owned and operated restaurant in Tampa. The family is associated with other well known places like Malios and Carmines. The food here is consistent and the service is always attentive. The house salad is a simple home run. Just the right amount of vegetables, cheese and dressing. The pasta and sauce are appetizing also. If you... More

Unfortunately, I ate at the Strip House in NYC the same week and this place really suffers in comparison. The steak was pretty good, not great. I had the 20 oz T-Bone. The prices were a little below the average steak house, which was nice. The service was ok. Our waitress didn't really check up on us much and I... More
