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 moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
The Laughing CatAdd to mybook
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 moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
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!
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! \rLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
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 moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
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 moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
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... view more
Thank you for a wonderful night of relaxation! The food was terrific! The wine was terrific! Our server -- Peter -- was TERRIFIC! \r
If you go to Tampa or live there ... do not bypass this place! You will not be dissappointed ... \r
When (if) I'm back in Tampa, The Laughing Cat will be on my agenda! \r
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 moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
