Tuttorossa Pizzeria Napoletana

This place is amazing. I had the special chicken & shrimp with pesto and sundried tomatoes over spaghetti which was amazing and a lot to where I had leftovers of the chicken. It comes with homemade bread and a salad. I had the garden salad with their homemade creamy balsamic dressing. Yum!! Was enticed by the Nutella tiramisu. Holy cow!! I want to lick the plate!
Employees are attentive the second you walk through the door. They have a case full of sautéed sides you can choose or take out. I got some grilled zucchini to take back to the hotel room. They dressed it with EVOO and balsamic. It's meant to be eaten at room temp but can be reheated. I also ordered the white pizza--it was delicious but "dry", since I'm used to the wetter red pies. The plain regular tomato-cheese was also good--nice thin tasteful crust. They had a 2 slice and soda lunch deal for $6.99 and didn't mind wrapping one for home. They are a full Italian menu place with many infused seafood dishes. The kitchen is open and visible from the entrance--love seeing the passion at work! They proudly explained their dishes and how they were cooked. My favorite item was the dessert svogliatelle--an orange-flavored delicate filling in a layered pastry served warm. Worth every cent of $3.50.
So, if you're vacationing on St. Pete Beach and you're trying to ascertain which places are worth your money and which aren't, let me tell you: Tuttorossa IS worth your money. I live about 10 minutes away and can't believe I've missed this place. The restaurant owners took over an entire strip mall and made it into a lovely restaurant. THIS was a divine experience. We wanted simple Italian-American food, and we didn't want to pay a bunch of money, so we took a chance here instead of our regular Italian restaurant (Pia's, which is lovely, but I can't resist her specials and, as I said, we were looking for less expensive). First, one of the owners - who was also cooking - showed us to our table, which was nice of him to do as the servers were all busy. Second, the pasta is touted as "house"made instead of "home"made, which has always been an irritation to me. Now, the food. We ordered the garlic cheese bread, which was so thick that by the second piece you don't want to eat any more. Our meals both came with salads, which were mixed greens and nicely done. The dressing (we both asked for it on the side) was the house, a creamy Italian vinaigrette of some sort, and was delicious. It's the first time in recent memory I've finished the dinner salad that comes before the meal. The entrees were wonderful: Cannelloni and lasagna. The cannelloni was not just stuffed with cheese - it was mostly meat. What a nice surprise! The lasagna was also not overdone with cheese. Neither of us finished our meals (portion size is huge) and we're both looking forward to dinner tonight. Helga waited on us and she suggested the cannelloni and the lasagna. She was diligent, polite, and between her and the kitchen our food was timed perfectly - we had a chance to finish our salads and she was able to clear away our plates before our entrees arrived. When my dining partner told her he preferred something else because the merlot was too sweet, she took back the glass with no argument. We told her we didn't mind paying for it (after all, it's not her fault we chose the wrong wine) but she took it off our bill. In all, probably the best experience at an Italian-American restaurant on St. Pete Beach I've ever had. The lack of a fifth star is because I found their tomato gravy (sauce, for many of you) a touch too sweet. It tasted like I expect a pizza sauce to taste. But don't let that stop you!

This is always one of my first stops when I come to visit the area. The best happy hours around, and since we know it's cash only, we're ready. The view can't be beat. And I know I'm not in the big city, so I'm relaxed and am not in a hurry, so the pace here is just fine. I just look out at the water, and life is good. The food is good as well.
I have no clue about the food here...but it is a good place to go if you want a cold drink, live music, and a great view. Positive-Matthew is awesome! Negatives-only accepts cash, and the ladies restroom is not so great. I would go back. 3.95 pitcher happy hour & 2.95 22 ounce drafts.
This place has some great food had super-reasonable prices. Kind of a dive but they make up for it with great food and also a nice view of the gulf. Their fish & chips are amazing but I get them with garlic fries. They are to die for. I just love this little place.

I can sum this place up with one word...eeeew. It was filthy, disgusting and smelled awful. The crowd kind of reminded me of a frat party; young, loud and extremely inebriated. There were and cans and bottles strewn all over the sand. It was pretty disgusting.
Overall, the ambiance was lacking, but the food itself was quite tasty (we had a margherita flatbread and blackened grouper sandwich) and we left satisfied with the service. We would eat here again if we return for another stay at the PCI.
This place is legit. The food was great, the location was alright. Came down for a wedding a day early and stayed here the first night. PCI is a cool, chic place and very comfortable. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming here. Definitely stay here, they have games outside and an awesome beach bar area. It's perfect for a lax trip.

25 cent wings after ten... can't beat that. They are bone-in and amazing. This is an older crowd bar, not recommended for the young unless you're out with your parents (my dad loves this bar). The food is decent, I've had the quesadilla and the specials (and the wings or course!) Beers are very well priced. They have Spatan on draft which is rare and amazing to me. Live music outside, and karaoke on certain nights. Check the website calendar to see the days. Lots of parking. It's a little hard to find if you don't know about it. It's tucked away under near the Pasadena draw bridge.
Great food. Fantastic prices. Even better service. Give it a try! Kind of tucked away, so don't miss it!
Had dinner at Blue Parrot 2/28, and thought the food was terrible. My dining companions chix wings arrived med rare and were sent back for further cooking. My 'grouper' sandwich was obviously snapper, but was seasoned well, so I did not send it back. The only reason I gave BP more than 1 star was the band. We really enjoyed the tunes from Dukes of Juke. I would return, but only order from the bar. Beware that they will charge you $12 minimum while you are there during entertainment!

Silas’ Steak House

Reviews:
I've heard so many good things about this restaurant and was sadly disappointed. We had the cheese mushroom appetizer, a filet mignon, and a prime rib. The mushrooms just tasted like they were soaked in cream and processed cheese. The filet was bland and the prime rib was over 50% fat. The baked potato was topped with cheap cheese and a Bacos-like substance. The veggies tasted like a microwaved frozen variety bag. If you like processed food you will probably enjoy your meal. If you are used to fresh food, try a different restaurant.
My husband and I visited Silas's for dinner tonight. What a wonderful dinner. I ordered the Sirloin steak and he had the surf and turf kabobs. Both meals were amazing. My steak was cooked perfectly and literally melted in my mouth. Service was great and prices were more than reasonable considering the ambience, quality and quantity of food provided. We will surely come back to Silas's next time we are in St Pete!
We have been coming to Silas's every time we vacation in the St. Pete area. We got the poppers for an appetizer but found the cheese a bit overpowering. The Ahi tuna on a bed of spinach was very good. Turkey reuben was also good. The barbeque chicken was flavorful. Solid choice without any bad surprises.

I'm so glad we stumbled on to this restaurant. I had the chicken curry penne. Although on the menu it's offered with shrimp and as a vegetarian meal, I had them make it with chicken and it was fantastic. I had it made spicy. Great flavor and not too overpowering. Our server Amber was fantastic. She was very helpful and made suggestions about the food and drinks that we took. Our dinner was fantastic. The atmosphere was ok, a bit closed in dud to columns but some folks might like the semi privacy. A real gem of a place on the beach.
This is a diner review - Giving this place 2-stars, and being generous. 8pm diner on a Tuesday night, you wold expect a place that prices itself as a "nicer" restaurant would have a few more people in it. Unfortunately, this place was empty. And for an empty restaurant, you would hope for a better table, but I was seated right next to the kitchen entrance and a bus boy station. The service was lackluster, even for an empty restaurant. But let's get to the food...Ordered the Filet with the mushroom duxelle with a Caesar salad. The salad was dry with very little dressing. Worst of all was that the salad was very brown and wilted. Unappetizing. Now, for the filet...it's a filet! You don't cut a filet open and stuff the center with mushroom duxelle! It was the worst tasting flavor combination ever. For a $30 steak, it was almost inedible. the only saving grace of the entire diner plate was the mushrooms and wine sauce. I've had better food at McDonalds. If you are staying at Sirata or are in St. Pete Beach looking for a nice diner, look elsewhere before trying Compass Grille. Your wallet and tastebuds will thank you.
This is a breakfast review- Only giving it 2 stars because the servers were nice- not their fault the food tastes like nothing. Literally no taste at all. I had eggs bennies- I had no idea you could make flavorless hollandaise, but you CAN! Hubby had the Sirata sandwich with ham- he said the same thing- no taste at all- used pepper which he never does and ate it only because he was starving. We're staying at the Sirata and were hoping the food would be good so we wouldn't have to leave the property to eat, but sadly that's not possible. On the upside, we're discovering great places in the area! For breakfast check out the Frog Pond. Dinner go to Sea Critters. Bad names with good food.

The reviews regarding crumpled menus are fact. If a perfect menu is important to your food experience select a different diner. The service is direct and to the point. Some might consider it impersonal but I find it refreshing. I was greeted, had my beverage and order placed in less than 2 minutes upon entering. If you want a fantastic "home cooked" breakfast this is the place for you. Remember the day when your mom/dad sat you down and said, do you want x or x and you selected? Expect a similar experience (except there are a long list of choices on the crumpled menu) with the great taste of home and you won't be disappointed. I selected the two eggs with sausage patties and extra crispy home fries($5.10). The home fries were cooked to perfection. My companion had the two eggs and steak ($8.25). When I return I'm getting that next time. $17.66 for two with two beverages - can of coke and coffee, I'm in. It is CASH only so get your greenbacks.
Worst experience I have ever had at a restaurant. Server threw one crumpled menu at our table for three people. I had three hairs on my omelette and home fries. Little boy behind the counter wouldn't stop picking his nose while serving meals. I Did not receive the discount for the hairy dish! They lost two other tables who were waiting too long for drink orders and a menu.
A cash only diner with sImple, American-style breakfast options. No frills or pocket bending prices either. Very accommodating staff! Loved the iced tea w/ smashed ice. Overall satisfied, but loads of competition in the area to explore with healthier options & variety. Regards, #FoodCriticUSA
