Fav's Italian Cucina - Bradenton, FL
Grab a seat on the outside covered patio and watch the quiet activity of Bradenton's downtown Main Street. It is the perfect setting to enjoy the food at Fav's. There is seating inside, but I find the outside seating more charming. If you stop by for lunch, they offer a special of two pizza slices and a soda for around $4.50. Otherwise, they have hot and cold subs, wraps, and a few pasta choices. I normally have the cheese pizza or the spaghetti marinara when I am there, which I heartily enjoy. In the evening, their menu is more extensive, and they offer nightly rotating specials that are displayed on the board.
The service is friendly and it seems to be a local hangout where everyone knows each other. If you are at the Lost Kangaroo Pub just down the street, the friendly folks at Fav's will run it down to your table at the "Roo" when it is ready. This is delicious Italian comfort food and try to save room for dessert. They make one great cannoli and they fill it on the spot, so that it is still nice and crunchy when you bite into it. If you like, they also serve beer and wine to go along with your meal.
