449 Central Ave, Ste 101
Saint Petersburg, FL 33701 Downtown St Petersburg Rate and review


"While training in Italy I picked up the practice of baking fresh bread daily, rolling fresh pasta daily and going to the market to get local produce and fish. Our menu changes constantly based on what is in season, and what high-quality, fresh ingredients are available."

Voted 'Top 5 Restaurants in Tampa Bay', IL Ritorno features contemporary Italian for the discerning palate. The Central Avenue restaurant, charming and intimate, brings a new taste of fresh Italian cuisine to the community by introducing new, interesting flavors and combinations that add elegance to a traditionally rustic genre. Chef David Benstock makes his own 'nduja sausage, mustard, gelato, his own pastas, he pickles ramps and preserves tangerines, and bakes his own focaccia and ciabatta rolls. IL Ritorno is locally owned by Chef David Benstock and his wife Erica.

We want our food to be enjoyed and memorable to all those dining at IL Ritorno.Therefore, we are well prepared to handle special requests and dietary restrictions.
