It was 2003, and we were traveling through Tuscany, sampling the best cheeses, pasta, herbs, meats, seafood, and pizzas in the world, and we knew that Tampa needed a restaurant that blends Italian cuisine with the modern bustle of a New World urban lifestyle.
BellaBrava: New World Trattoria was born in 2005 in downtown Saint Petersburg, where our Tuscan dreams have come alive! New World Trattoria: Less formal than a ristorante, our service is casual, our prices remain low, and our emphasis is on a steady clientele rather than haute cuisine.
Old world flavor mingles with new world flair here. From seafood to traditional pasta, pizzas, and more, we are positive everyone will find something delicious to savor! Our unique Woodstone ovens cook delicious flatbreads, pizzas, and calzones. Our ingredients are fresh, often locally sourced, and evoke the flavors of Tuscany and other delicious cuisines from Italy.
With friendly staff, we aim to make BellaBrava your casual dining spot. Bring your kids to sample our flavorful meals, your coworkers to grab a refreshing cocktail, or have a date night with a bottle off our extensive wine list and flavorful entrees. At BellaBrava, there's something for everyone. Benvenuti!
CASUAL ITALIAN CUISINE
A trattoria is an Italian-style eating establishment that is generally much less formal than a ristorante, but more formal than an osteria.
A trattoria rooted in tradition may typically provide no printed menu, casual service, wine sold by the decanter rather than the bottle, and low prices, with an emphasis on a steady clientele rather than on haute cuisine.
At BellaBrava, we emphasize the Guest Experience, preparing excellent food derived from Italian recipes, accessible wines, and extraordinary service.
BEST ITALIAN FOOD IN TOWN
From our travels to Italy over the last 30 years, we have brought home inspiration to our kitchens. Using American ingredients that complement Italian recipes, with some special imported Italian secrets, we've created a menu for every palate, every age group, every celebration, and every regular day.
