This is a unique dining experience quite rare these days in the time of chain and focus-group mass-marketing restaurants - a truly individual family-run restaurant with top-quality food and outstanding service personnel who know you and welcome you with genuine hospitality.

I've lived in Tampa for over twenty years, but somehow had never gotten to Lauro. Finally had dinner there last Saturday. Simply put, it was a great experience. Really good food and friendly service from a by-gone age. Other reviewers have commented on the decor...More

The food was very bland. This is why I rated it 2stars. The service and everything else was fine. With all the great local Italian restaurants to choose from, this would be my last pick. Osteria Natalia, Bella's, Donatella's, Armanis.

As others have stated, the environment isn't amazing. If you are looking for great food, great service, and nice portions... Come to Lauro's. I would put the service up there with Bern's steakhouse. The wait staff are energetic and make sure your drink is always...More

Saw reviews on Tripadvisor as having good food. Tried it out and took our 6 & 10 year old. Didn't realize it wasn't really a restaurant for kids, but they loved it. Our children were made to feel special at what they considered a "fancy"...More

Met some friends who all had birthdays in June. Enjoyed the awesome lobster bisque; a new pasta with pancetta that was amazing and of course great dessert. Always a great meal and superb service

Yes, it truly is close to my Italian grandmother's in quality and taste. I've lived in this area since 1956 and this is one of the best Italian restaurants around. Fantastic service - you'll feel like royalty! - but friendly and inviting.
