Conveniently located in downtown St Petersburg just steps from some of the city's stellar attractions, Il Ritorno has been offering discerning foodies a new twist to Italian fare since 2014. The food is not only delicious, it's pleasing to the eyes, garnering this bistro a spot on Tampa Bay Times' "Top 10 Restaurants in Tampa Bay." Drawing on his philosophy that, "food should be fresh, exciting, textural and an all-around memorable experience for everyone," owner-Chef David Benstock has created a very appealing menu, always highlighting seasonal ingredients. Menus are printed daily with unique selections boasting a host of fresh choices from antipasti (people rave about the octopus Puttanesca), pancetta spiced duck breast and much more. Open for dinner only.
