Café Largo

About Café Largo

est. 1986

Located in the Tampa/St Petersburg area near the beautiful Belleair Bluff’s neighborhood, Café Largo is nested at the end of a quiet courtyard in the Galleria Plaza. Our intimate dining room creates a perfect atmosphere for a romantic night on the town, a quiet evening with friends, or even an elegant family celebration.

Chef Dominique Christini specializes in a revival of classic French cuisine with a light touch in tradition of the Grande Brigade. Using only the freshest ingredients, everything we serve – from breads and soups through entrees and desserts - is prepared locally in our kitchen. Café Largo is truly a boulangerie, a bistro, a café, a fine dining restaurant, and even a patisserie in one.

In 2013 a casual dining space "La Buvette" was added to accommodate small private parties.  The monthly wine tastings are also held here.

Cooking classes are held monthly.  At least six persons are needed for the class to be held, otherwise it is postponed.  A maximum of twelve in the class makes for a perfect teaching enviroment.
