Success! Thanks for posting your review of The Laughing Cat. You’ve done the world some good today.

Skip this place!! Living off it's OLD reputation.

We used to go to the old location and loved it. Last night we chose to follow a recent recommendation and try it out again with the couple next door. We arrived at 8:00, placed our order, which was recommended by the waiter, and sat for an hour before finally asking the waiter what was taking so long. He said our food was on the way. 30 minutes later, he came out and told us that the dish he recommended wasn't availa... view more

More than A Dining Experience

After about 3 hours of drinking beers and smoking cigars at King Corona around the corner our group ran the Bing Scout feature and found TLC listed as 4.5 starts. The new location just opened 4 weeks ago. It was a great experience. Nicely done restuarant, large delicious portions, and great service. Ulysses was our server. We tried several appetizers and main courses. All delicious. After dinner Franco came ou... view more

The Best In Tampa

The food is outstanding. The prices are more than reasonable...especially when you consider that you will easily get a 2nd meal from the leftovers.
Our group of 8 friends go out to eat all over Tampa and this is by far our favorite. Hell, even the bread is to die for.

Get the Chicken Yolanda!

Awsome Food! Huge Portions! Highly Reccomend

The food was unreal!. My wife and I split a meal and still had to take some home. Anyone who thinks they are ""overpriced"" obviously did not actually eat there and see the portions. It was enough to feed us for 2 dinners. We would highly reccomend! \r

You Have Got to Be Related to the Owners to Rate them High

We came here from out of town based on 5-star reviews and were terribly dissapointed. The prices are not at all justified. Yes, the sauce was good, but the veal was not the most tender, the side salad was not at all worth almost $6 (and should have been included). Oh, and we were practically ignored in the beginning - I guess because we were not ""regulars""? To top it off, on the way back to our car we were acosted... view more

Simply Exquisite!

My boyfriend and I are always on the lookout for new places to dine, and after reading a review in a local paper, we decided that this place was worth a shot. We were still a bit skeptical even after being seated at our table, but the long list of items on the menu and the fantastic service we received immediately from our server, Peter, changed our minds. The gnoochi was perfectly cooked, the chicken parm was incred... view more

Best in Ybor

Wonderful food and good service. The chef personally showed us what each dish on the buffet was and outlined the ingredients for my mother

Fantastic food

At first glance you would not believe this is a top notch restaurant; however once you taste the food, you are immediately transformed to gourmet heaven.\r
This is the type of restaurant you can take your family to and know you will receive wonderful service; the wait staff treated us like family. They were very obliging to allow us to take pictures of them posing with us (approximately 40 Admin professionals en

We pre-arranged a menu for our group of 42 which was fantastic. Absolutely wonderful authentic and delicious Italian food like we never had before. Waiters and Franco fit right in with our crazy group. Received kudos from every member of the group for the best ever. The salmon dish was particularly fantastic as was every dish served. It was all you can eat for one price from appetizer through dessert. We all hi... view more
