Food was just ok - had the Stromboli which arrived to my table under-cooked (raw dough on parts of the bottom) and there wasn't much to the dish. Service was average but everyone was very friendly. They may have better dishes as the place appeared to be popular.

The server was new, but really willing to give great service. The pizza was really good and not expensive. I would go back again if in the area. Well done...

I call it a pizza joint because the pizza looked good but the entree's were just average. We started out good with an excellent salad. Chilled crispy greens on a chilled plate . The homemade bread and olive oil dip were excellent. Good start! But then... I figure any Italian restaurant worth its salt takes pride in their red sauce.... More

To start, 10 years after having moved away we came back to Fav's and when we walked in the owner recognized us, told us we hadn't changed a bit (he had me right there), and made us fee right at home once again. The years slipped away, as we ordered old favorites (lasagne and pasta), and it was served with... More

Mikey and his crew ALWAYS approach you with a smile and genuine niceness. Been going here for years and now my son had started enjoying the amazing subs even more.

Fav's is one of the best Italian restaurants in Bradenton and as an Italian myself, one that I recommend to my friends and family. Good Italian food is hard to find and I can honestly say that I...

I'm a real foodie and love good fresh food. My husband and I dropped in for lunch and were extremely impressed with this restaurant. The server was friendly and knowledgeable. Upon placing my order I expressed my food allergy to garlic, she said that would not be a problem! The chef/owner prepared the most delicious pizza that both my husband... More

This is my favorite spot to stop on my way home from a long day, pick up a couple chicken Caesar salads to go and know I'm going to have a great dinner at a good price. I've eaten in and enjoyed anything I've ordered but the to-go salad is my favorite
