Valentino's Little Italy
This is my honest take on this place. Both pros and cons. Not being from the area, I wasn't sure where to find good pizza without being to fancy. Looking online, I found many pizza place in this area and while driving through, we decided to give Valentino's a try. The outside is bright yellow so it stands out. Walking in, it's a little small but they were able to accomodate 8 of us by moving tables together. Not to offend the business by any means, the first thing that hit me was the "old" smell the restaurant had. That aside, we settled in and started with some garlic knots. They were pretty good as the marinara sauce was too. We ordered 3 pizzas. A small 1/2 sausage, 1/2 hamburger. That was basically shared with the kids. Also we ordered what some restaurants would call a margheritte pizza. I may have the spelling off there, but it's the sliced tomatoes and fresh basil type. Last and certainly not least, we ordered a lasagna pizza. It sounded odd at first, but it was ridiculously delicious. My wife who likes the margheritte style pizza raves about a local restaurant's pizza by our home and she said Valentino's was actually much better. Nobody had anything negative to say and it was all positive and they all raved about the pizza. The only other thing that bothered me is paying for each can of soda. That adds up. I definitely would be back and hope it's soon. Pizza was phenomenal so the smell and cans of soda, I will overlook. I hope this helps future patrons. Oh, the staff was really nice and checked on us and other patrons as well. That's good to see that they cared about service. Well done.

Were welcomed by the bar tender who informed us that we had to put our name on a board to be considered for the wait. We only waited for about 20 minutes. It's a pretty small place, as far as the dining room goes. But, when we sat, we were extremely impressed by the atmosphere. The TV's on the table were a nice touch, though our remote seemed to change other customer's TV's. That was more entertaining than the TV programming itself hahha. Anyway, we ordered Duck Wings for apps (superb), The Resurrection Burger, The Wine-O Burger, and The Demi God Burger. All were superb. Cooked medium rare as we like. They exploded in your mouth and you were consumed by flavor. Just fantastic, and generous. The Sweet Potato fries were an included option for a side, and they too were Phenomenal.

PoFolks Restaurant
I've been going to Po Folks since I was a kid. When they shut down most of them, my heart broke. Discovering that there's one here in Saint Petersburg made me leap with joy! I love this restaurant! The fried chicken cannot be beat! I've never had bad food here and I've never been treated poorly here. The staff is laid back and the atmosphere is just as laid back. For a country girl from Plant City area feeling out of her element in this bustling city, Po Folks always takes me back home. ;-)

Black Forest Cottage
This is a very authentic German restaurant. The crepes, with a topping range from everything from Brie cheese and jam to fruit and herbs, are to die for. The entire restaurant is lined with authentic German trinkets and books, and is quite homey. I highly recommend Black ForestCottage for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

This place has the best breakfast!!! I cook myself and this place is worth stopping at!! Yes there's other bad reviews but the waiter/ waitress doesn't reflect my meal.. If you want the best eggs Benedict on the planet, then stop in there and try it!!

Gratzzi Italian Grille
Love this place because it is authentic. You must try their appetizer, the Bada Bing. Very rich but well worth splitting with a group. I have ever had a bad meal here. The Lemoncello drinks are wonderful.

Restaurant was very clean and upscale. Our server Jalissa was extremely pleasant and attentive. Fried chicken was delicious and large portions but collard greens and Mac n cheese won me over

Chili's Grill & Bar
The food is very good. And it's very clean. The price is also very reasonable. And I need to work on is improving the hostess customer service skills.
