If your from Canada, home of the .60 cent dollar, Bernini's is a dream come true. $3 martinis AND half price entrees and pastas before 7. Dinner, two drinks and dessert for under $50! We started with Cosmopolitan martinis, then had the lasagne, risotto and chiopini and everything was a delight. Fresh ingredients, fast and friendly service and right in... More

We just kind of strolled into the restaurant not knowing what to expect in terms of food or service. Service staff and manager (owner?) was very friendly and attentive. Food turned out to be delightfully good and well priced. We had chicken parmagiana personal pizza, chicken parm hero and chicken parm plate with a ceasar salad. Excellent value for a... More

I have been going there for years and always get the Crispy Duck. It is always 1/2 of a duck with a juicy breast. Last night it was two drumsticks and a thigh! I asked the waitress what was going on and she didn't know. Also, the $2 martinis are now $3.

I went with a group of 18 and they had us set up in a private room. We socialized around the bar while everyone arrived and got a drink. After we were seated, the service was great and the food was enjoyed by all. I can recommend Bernini for the food and especially for the service offered our large group.

Went for our Anniversary. I'm glad we made reservations. The place packs out early. Half off on pasta dishes (early bird) and $3.00 designer martinis. Jack the host wished us a Happy Anniversary and followed with two glasses of Champagne. Nice touch. Our server Lourie was very attentive and definitely a customer service oriented person. Both Jack and Lourie made... More

We had an early dinner here with 6 friends last week. The half price early-bird dinners were well priced & tasty, but not "wow". I thought the portions were a bit small, but heard that the full price plates later in the evening were larger. My husband's small steak was tender & cooked as he wanted it. Service was very...

We were there by 5:30 and the place was already busy. By 6 it was packed. The reason is really great service and half-price entrees, the latter only until 7 pm. The food was great!! Veal chop, crispy duck, caprese with burrata, seafood linguine, beef carpaccio...what's not to love!! And did I mention $2 martinis? Great efficient, professional service gave... More

My wife and I traveled from east coast of Florida to Ybor city and we revisited bernini. We called ahead and reserved a table on the lower level. We were seated immediately, and had a beverage in short order. Our waiter recommended some entry's. I had the crispy duck and it was excellent. My wife ordered a gluten-free veal dinner... More

Reservation a must to sit down stairs. 1/2 price 4 to 7 PM on most items (pastas and entrees).. At these prices it is wonder they can stay open. Food saw quite good at the discounted prices, but not perfect. Service was friendly. I will go again.
