When the owners of Taverna Costale originally moved their families to Florida, they did so to create a revolution in hospitality. Their blueprint for success can be summed up in two simple words: People first.

It is a commitment to those they work alongside, by creating welcoming, supportive environments in which to grow. It is a passion to deliver warm, welcoming experiences for their guests. It is the desire to make positive changes within their neighborhood through community outreach.

For this reason, the owners cultivated a relationship with acclaimed chef Fabio Viviani, who brings unmatched culinary inspiration to the table. The synergy between the two group elevated the spotlight on people, culture, and quality - making Taverna Costale unique to what St. Pete has to offer.

    Wonderful food and service. First time eating there and I will definitely be back. The special lobster pasta was creamy and surprisingly sweet. The lamb chops were perfect. We also really loved the home made foccacia bread - don't miss that!

    Service was absolutely horrible (Blaze) and then got slabbed with a 20% gratuity even though I went without alcohol or water for the better part of dinner. The food was meh. We had the burrata, mushroom pizza, and the squid ink linguine. The burrata was good and flavorful. The pizza was all too similar to a small Digiorno, fluffy and meh. The squid linguine was oversold and lacked full body flavor. We were splitting between two and although server told us it was no problem splitting dishes, they didn’t arrive split.

    Taverna Coastal is a great go to. Service is great and the wide selection of items on the menu offers something for everyone. My personal favorite are the mussels!
