Quality Foods Market might now sound like one of the best dang Italian restaurants in the region, but this subtly named market and restaurant delivers flavor in spades. There’s a reason it has near perfect 5-star reviews on OpenTable, and earned one of the top Diners Choice slots in the Tampa metro area. You can visit the market and restaurant at 16307 N Florida Avenue.

The market/restaurant offers a unique culinary experience, featuring authentic Italian cuisine, in a relaxed, elevated casual, and intimate atmosphere. Enjoy a seasonally-inspired, from scratch menu, featuring both classic and modern pastas; hand cut steaks from USDA Certified Premium Hereford Heritage 1881 Beef; New Zealand Lamb Chops; USDA Certified Prime Veal; and the freshest seafood available, flown in from around the world throughout the week.

Tables are limited, with just 16 seats inside, and an additional 16 seats for al fresco dining. Their guests are treated to a true Italian dining experience, as they allow a minimum of three hours between reservations.
