Food is fresh and SO tasty. Large menu to choose from. Wait staff was very attentive and helpful. Portions are very large. Space is not very big, very cute. Well worth the visit.

Fav's is a small Italian restaurant in downtown Bradenton. It was very busy on Saturday night, which is no surprise with the quality of their food. Excellent homemade pasta. We had lasagna and gnocchi. The bruschetta is the best we ever had. Modest prices and pleasant surroundings. Highly recommended!

This downtown venue has great authentic Italian cuisine, serving lunch and dinner. The handmade pizza is some of the best in town, but all menu items are terrific.

We visited Fav's on February 15th, 2017. Fav's Italian is located in the Old Downtown area of Bradenton and offers some inside and also some sidewalk seating. My wife ordered the Antipasto Salad, which was large, and only $6.25. The salad consisted of fresh iceberg and romaine lettuce, red cabbage, carrots and topped with cucumber, tomato, red onions, ham, salami... More

We love Main Street and have been trying different restaurants. Italian is our favorite so we had high hopes. We were seated quickly on a busy Saturday night and the server came immediately for our drink order. He brought bread with an olive oil dip. The bread was fresh and good, it would have been excellent had it been warm.... More
