I took my wife here last week for our Wedding Anniversary. They set us up in a nice secluded table where we enjoyed our favorite beverages from the bar and a tasty calamari appetizer. My wife had the Crab meat pasta which was flavorful and quite delicious and I had the veal parmesan, which was tender and always a favorite.... More

Took family to dinner to celebrate a birthday! Awesome meal from appetizer thru the finish! Most of had steaks with Megan being different and have her favorite (and mine) buttered Rigatoni noodles! This was our second visit only because the long drive from hour home is over an hour but we did book for Valentine's day in advance!

Looking for a great American Steakhouse? This is the place. A pure original, not a copycat "branch office" of a chain. Whenever in Tampa, depending on where we land hotel wise, we either make it a point to dine at either Malio's or this outstanding venue Ivarone's a great "original" steakhouse. Great bar scene where having a meal at the... More

I guess I was expecting a super Italian meal, but this is more of a steakhouse. Meatball appetizer was good. I had the chicken stuffed with cheese and ham and it was very tasty. My hubby ordered a steak which looked awesome, but he said it wasn't seasoned well at all. He loved his fettucine alfredo though. Pretty pricey. Nice... More

The only good thing from staying in our hotel was the recommendation of this restaurant. Wonderful food, great service and very attentive staff. My husband had steak, whilst I went for a house pasta dish - amazing and I had to let the waiter know I left most of it not because it was bad, purely because I could not... More

I have been wanting to eat here for a long time & finally got the opportunity this evening. Made a reservation for 5:45pm, arrived & seated promptly. I had the chicken piccata with creamed spinach. Both excellent! I also upgraded to the Jenn salad which was also very good. The dipping oil for the bread was the best I have... More

Lavarone's is a great restaurant - not only for the food but for conversation. It was very crowded on a Friday night yet because of the individual booths and restaurant layout, the noise was minimal. Steaks were cooked perfect and the lasagna was delicious and not overly seasoned. I don't know what the house Cabernet was but it was great... More

Can’t really say anything about the food because we didn’t have a chance to taste it. Had a reservation but waited over 30 minutes with no table available so we left. Apparently the concept of a reservation eludes this establishment. If you offer reservations, that would seem to mean a table is “Reserved”. Not only was a table not reserved,... More

We went to Iavarone's for the first time last Saturday. It was awesome...everyone from the moment we walked in the door were very friendly. Our waitress Hailey was one of the best waitresses we have ever had anywhere! The food was outstanding. We will definitely be back !
