The owners graciously served us right before closing and we were treated to a most delicious Italian feast. The decor is so soft and inviting with the candle light just perfectly lighting our meals. We all had the most tender, buttery veal dishes imaginable with only one small compliant....the veal piccata was served with lime instead of lemon. The wine... More

How did this place not be in top 15 restaurants, top two Italian in Tampa, and has not receive hire marks is beyond me. Delicious, authentic Italian and the tradition of family running the place. Also did great job with catering our Christmas party. Go there any time and you can't go wrong, try their princess sauce!

Greeted by the owner, who formally introduced our server (nice touch), we were seated immediately in the main dining area, which is set up to be "controlled chaos", very much "today". Excellent wines, all priced the same, imported from Italy by the owner. The pasta e fagiol is the best I've ever tasted, and the Caesar salad was excellent, as... More

My boyfriend and I went for Valentine's Day and had a wonderful experience. We loved having very friendly, hands-on service from the owner himself. This is a family-owned business and everyone who works there takes pride in their job. The service was quick and efficient! The atmosphere was quaint and romantic. Our food was outstanding. We will definitely be back!

Vino e Pasta is a true gem located in South Tampa by Gandy and Himes! This is true, fresh, authentic Italian food and you cannot go wrong with any dish on the menu. Not only is the food fantastic, but it is so reasonably priced and you get a TON of food for your money. All entrees come with a... More

I made reservations for Sunday November 29 at 6:00 pm for four and when we arrived, we were seated promptly. We sat outside in a quaint closed in porch area, and the weather was absolutely delightful. Two or three ceiling fans were going and we were extremely comfortable in the lovely mid 60 degree weather. I did notice that there... More

Don't let the exterior appearance concern you...inside you will be transformed into glorious Italian delights...their special sauce..pink...to die for. You get what you pay for...on the more pricey side, but you'll remember the food months or years after. Worth paying for quality.

We made reservations for Vino E Pasta for 6pm, & arrived just ahead of that. It was a very warm evening, and even with reservations we were seated outside. There were no fans on or a/c. There were 4 other tables seated outside who had arrived before us, and none of them had menus or water or had ordered (this... More

We went for a celebration and the owners were so accommodating and friendly. Very busy little Italian spot serving up great pastas and more. Try the special little bundles with 3 different cheeses in the filling and a deliciously light gorgonzola sauce. Excellent service, average quality seating (uncomfortable). We were treated like family...the good side lol!

Friends insisted in trying this restaurant so we did. Staff wasn't quite updated on menu details, slow service and our food was cold Not much wine selection-better BYOB So not quite good like friends told us it would be
