Hands down the BEST Italian restaurant in Tampa. The lasagna and gnocchi are to dye for if you choose the pink sauce it is a slice of heaven.

This is a smallish italian restaurant located in the corner of a plaza on MacDill Avenue just south of Bay to Bay Blvd and a block off Bayshore Blvd. While the decor is nothing special (it is good), it does not matter because it is all about the food and service here and both are great. The menu is not... More

Small restaurant, they do not take reservations or children under 7. It is a small restaurant in a strip mall, very unassuming. The moment you walk in the door you feel welcomed. Started with the meatball appetizer, 4 large meatballs covered in sauce and cheese. They were gone before I was able to snap a photo. Delicious. Could not decided... More

This is a small place, but worth the visit. The staff takes very good care of you and the food is awesome. Couldn't ask for a better experience.

Words can not express my opinion about how tasty the food and deserts are at this unassuming little gem tucked into a corner of a S Tampa strip mall. Decor is not much but it doesn't need to be since the food and service do all of the talking. Will definitely return!

Just had dinner with my wife, our two kids (12 & 13), and friend and it was surprisingly awesome. Tucked into the corner of a strip mall without much ambiance, the food did the talking while the service was a very close second place. Soup special, bottle of red, and various pastas clearly assembled with love in the hands, then... More

This is a tiny place that doesn't take reservations - so plan accordingly. It is locally owned and truly cared for. The food is always fresh and the staff have always made excellent recommendations. It is a little pricey, but it was a really excellent meal and ambience. I tend to get the special of the evening, and I haven't... More

I did not go in to eat. All I wanted to do was to purchase a gift certificate for my kids because I heard how wonderful the food was. I entered the place on Sunday evening. While waiting a minute or so one of the waiters (might have been the owner) came up to me and asked what I wanted.... More

OK, you get what you pay for here...oh my, oh my!! Fresh homemade pasta with pink sauce and seafood is to die for! This is the best restaurant meal I have had since living in Tampa. Plenty of food to take home as well. It is expensive but well worth it! It's amore! You would have to travel to Italy... More

Osteria Natalina is a must visit. Forget all the national chains and go where the food is prepared fresh and any way you want it. Their menu is short and simple, but that is only the beginning. They will make any dish, anyway in, any make up you want (as long as they have the ingredients). Their food is fresh... More
